Now that I am an avid user of a Digital SLR camera (a Nikon D5000 to be exact), I have been hankering for not only new lenses (or just one new one for now), but also for a more roomy and cute camera bag.
When I bought my camera, I added on an inexpensive kit that included this camera bag:
It does pretty much all I need it to do right now, seeing as I usually don’t go anywhere, so I don’t need to take my camera with me, and I only have the kit lens that came with the camera, so I don’t need any extra storage. This little carrying case will always be useful when I am on the go and only need one lens, but I plan on purchasing a new lens in the near future and will want more storage, as well as for papers, filters, my point and shoot camera, as well as room to grow.
Here are some options that meet my camera bag requirements that it must be cute and have organized space for me to grow into.
This Bowler Camera Bag does not give me much more storage, but boy is it cute!
The bags from this website are incredibly cute, but out of my price range.
I wouldn’t say this is the cutest bag, but it has a fair amount of room.
For some extra cash, you can also design a custom bag on this website.
The nice thing about the Etsy camera bag sellers is that a lot of them custom make the camera bags to your specifications. That, and they tend to be less expensive.
However, as a college student who already spent a lot of money on the camera itself, I found one awesome alternative. See this camera bag?
It is also a custom bag, but it comes with a tutorial! I figure I have some time to wait before I need a camera bag and by that time I will probably be done with the semester and will have time for a project this demanding. It’s the perfect way to practice my sewing skills, save money, and come out with a completely custom camera bag all for myself! What do you think?
If you have a camera, any type of camera, what kind of case do you keep it in? Have you ever tackled a project like this before?
