Holiday 2012: Fashionable Camera Bags
While specific bags are a matter of taste, you don't have to sacrifice style for solid protection of your camera gear. If you are looking for a fashionable camera bag as a gift or for yourself or your favorite photographer, here are some camera bags that allow for practical protection of expensive gear and don't detract from your expression of personality.
The Lowepro Pro Messenger Bag 200 AW is designed to make your pro-sized gear easy to access so your work goes more smoothly. The bag is also available in two other sizes, the 160 AW and the 180 AW. The exterior is a modern performance fabric that resembles classic canvas but is lighter in weight and more resistant to weather and scratches. The bag has a FlexFlap Design that allows you to fold the flap in half, attach four "silencing" fasteners, and then silently grab camera gear in a quicker fashion. If you need full access to your gear, just fold the flap behind the top carry handle. And when you move from one location to the next, pull the full flap back to cover the contents of your bag. Padded, adjustable interior dividers in the main compartment are able to fit a pro DSLR with grip and attached 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom lens (facing sideways) and a flash, or the bag can hold a pro DSLR with grip and attached shorter zoom lens, two extra lenses and a flash. With a quick unzip, a dual-purpose pocket transforms from an additional storage space to a trolley sleeve. Additional features include an all-weather cover, a zippered front pocket that can expand, a detachable top carry handle, and a thickly padded shoulder strap for enduring comfort.
The Think Tank Photo Retrospective Shoulder Bag series is for those who want an inconspicuous shooter's bag with a classic design and modern improvements. Various sizes and a few colors in each size are available. The sizes include the 5, 7, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50, and as the number gets larger, so does the bag. To represent the line here, we'll consider the Think Tank Retrospective 30 Shoulder Bag. The lightweight, soft-sided shoulder bag is ergonomically designed to conform to your body, providing flexible comfort and quick access to your gear. The exterior fabric is 1100D polyspun polyester. Removable, adjustable dividers can be configured in the bag's main compartment to hold 1 pro DSLR with an attached 70-200mm f/2.8 lens sideways or 1 pro DSLR body and 2-4 lenses. Two expandable front pockets can fit pro-size DSLRs (bodies only) or extra lenses. An inside organizer pocket is perfect for additional accessories. The hook-and-loop fastener on the front can be "silenced" with Sound Silencers, for quiet work. The non slip shoulder strap is cushioned and padded, and a removable short carrying handle is convenient for grab and go. A seam-sealed rain cover is also included.
Available in a couple of colors, the Acme Made Montgomery Street Courier is perfect for travel. With its FlexFold System, you can expand the bag to fit gear, or fold it away for extra personal storage space.

A soft, quilted interior lining prevents your gear from getting scratched. Your camera is easily accessible at all times through a quick-access side panel, and there's a front organizer pocket for your phone and other personal items.
