While on holidays I was a little bit naughty and was frequently carrying my DSLR in my handbag while visiting places. Why??? Because I hate carrying my camera bag around, not only does it look dorky but isn’t practical, too big and bulky, so I started carrying my camera in my handbag.
This was a bit of a worry, as I was scared that if I accidentally dropped my bag I would smash my camera and/or lens and it also meant that I had to pick which lens I wanted to use as I didn’t have enough room to carry around an extra.
When I returned from my holidays I decided to hunt around and see if anybody had thought about us gals and see if there was a handbag that would be suitable.
Well I found one, not only is it a reasonable price but it is exactly what I was looking for. They are Jo Totes
Its fairly plain which means it will go with anything your wearing and comes in 4 great colours I choose black as it is probably one of the easiest colours to work with, clothes and shoes wise.
They are $79 USD plus postage (approx $110 all up) but I had some money sitting in Paypal which I got for my photo sales through Gettys so I thought what the heck and bought one with that.
I did find some other camera handbags but they were a lot pricier and the shipping costs were over the top. There is also a lady on Flickr who has started up her own camera handbag company. They look pretty classy but unfortunately she does not ship overseas and they are also a bit pricey but you would expect that as the bag is leather and beautifully crafted. And this Giraffe print handbag is cute and reasonably priced but they don’t ship overseas.
Now I just have to wait for it’s arrival to see what it is really like. I have read some reviews from people who have purchased one and they are pretty happy with their bag, so I’m sure I will be happy with mine.
