New Camera Bag


 
 I have a new camera bag- so I can carry my camera in my purse and still keep my knitting separate.
 My old camera bag is a vintage leather one that belonged to my grandpa. It is a great bag- big enough for camera, lens(s), mini tripod, my ginormous wallet, phone, knitting...but ultimately, I have to carry the camera bag instead of a purse. And sometimes I want it to not be so obvious I am carrying a rather large and expensive (to me) camera. I also didn't want to just get a purse style camera bag- though I probably will someday- since they serve basically the same function of my camera bag I already have.

Enter Roma.  Canvas. Leather. Just enough padding to keep my camera from getting scratched or poked with knitting needles.
Just big enough to fit my camera, a lens, and a few accessories (or knitting gear) in the outside pocket. And it can fit my kindle or paperwork in the bag. Just large enough to still fit in my larger purses along with the latest sweater or shawl project.


Between the two bags I can store almost all of my camera gear- excluding sundries like the large tripod and light tent. Very handy for keeping everything all in one place and keeping me from mixing filters and other small pieces in with the knitting tools in my desk*.

*But who are we kidding? Too late for that. There are already stitch markers in my brown camera bag (and maybe a few needles to- what can I say, I padded bag is a great knitting project bag too!)

Nice. I have a really small purse & got one of the neoprene camera case/protector thingamajigs to put on the camera when I carry it around. I like this bag, though. Have fun with your new camera (I have a Pentax K-r).
