This past weekend was only another sign that I really need to get a new camera bag. After my small black camera bag’s strap broke more than half a year ago, I felt less inclined to carry around my camera. Lugging around a laptop and a backpack was more than enough for me, but I missed shooting. With photojournalism and now working as a photo intern, I have more of an excuse to make an investment, but I saw Kelly Moore bags and Epiphanie Bags and I have been torn ever since.
Both are expensive as hell, but I know I would use one of these bags forever, even for days when I don’t need my photo equipment. I love that they mask themselves as a day-to-day purse, but reviews say that carrying two lenses and a body in these fashionable bags is still relatively light on the shoulder and makes travelling easier.
Here’s where I need help — which one should I buy? I am loving Epiphanie’s Lola, but I like that the Clover bag can hold a 15″ MacBook laptop as well. On the other hand, Kelly Moore’s are gorgeous, but I have read reviews that say the bag is prone to popping open. Has anyone looked into buying camera bags like these?
