The Best Camera Bags for Women

Updated on January 31, 2013

What Are the Best Camera Bags for Women?

What Are the Best Camera Bags for Women? My girlfriend is into photography, and her birthday was coming up recently, so I wanted to get her something that she could really put to good use. I thought, why not get her a camera bag, so she can easily carry her camera around with her wherever she goes.

The thing is, once I started looking at all the different camera bags that are available, there are so many that it's hard to choose. To make things easier I decided to split all the womens camera bags into three main categories: Backpack Camera Bags, Small Camera Bags and Stylish Camera Bags.

As you can see, I managed to find a good selection of each type of bag. For example, if you're looking for a stylish camera bag, the Kelly Moore B-Hobo Bag Walnut Fashionable Camera Bag is a fantastic choice, and doesn't even look like a camera bag at all! The only problem is it's a bit on the pricey side.

If you're looking for a more practical backpack style camera bag, there are still plenty to choose from. Some of them still have a feminine look, such as the Jill-E Kaleidoscope Camera Backpack or the Jill-E Baroque Camera Backpack. Alternatively, if you want something smaller to fit just the camera, the Laurel Compact Edition Nylon DSLR Camera Carrying Handbag is a great choice.

Reasons for Getting a Camera Bag

Why not just any bag will do. You need a good quality camera bag.

Camera bags are great for carrying your camera and accessories. Of course, some people try to make do by just using a standard bag to carry their camera, such as a normal backpack. This is a mistake, because many camera bags are shaped to fit a camera, and the backpack style camera bags have padding and compartments to enable you to safely carry your camera and accessories without them getting damaged.

Camera bags have a number of benefits over standard bags, for example:

  • Small camera bags don't take up much space, and your camera fits neatly insite with padding to protect it.
  • Larger camera bags, such as the backpack style bags, contains multiple padded compartments for lenses and other accessories.
  • Stylish camera bags don't even look like camera bags, they just look like stylish bags that you would be proud to show off.
  • Having a camera bag means you can easily keep your camera with you wherever you go, so if you spot a photograph opportunity you are ready to shoot.

Choosing the Right Camera Bag

Which women's camera bag is best for you?

So, you want to get a camera bag, but you're not quite sure which type to get? Here we have featured three different types of camera bag: Stylish Camera Bags, Backpack Camera Bags, and Small Camera Bags. So, which type would best suit your needs?

Consider the following:

  • How big do you want the bag to be?
  • Do you own a digital SLR or a compact camera?
  • Do you need to be able to carry lenses and other accessories in your camera bag?
  • Do you want it to look like a stylish lady's bag rather than a typical camera bag?
  • How much money are you going to spend on your camera bag?
  • Are you serious about photography?
  • Do you do a lot of outdoor photography?

Whichever camera bag you get, make sure it is the right bag for your needs. For example, don't just get a small bag if you have lots of lenses to carry. On the other hand, there's no point getting a big backpack if you're only going to be carrying your camera and no other accessories.

Do you own one of the camera bags in this lens? Or do you own a bag which you think is better than those featured here? Feel free to share your thoughts...
