Most Camera Bags do not equal high fashion

I’ve been searching for a new camera bag and it’s soooo frustrating! I need something affordable, functional, and safe! I want my gear protected, especially since I travel so much with it. I’ve been dying to get a Shootsac to take on shoots with me ever since I saw it mentioned by a guest blogger on the many forums and blogs that I read over every day. Isn’t it precious??

It’s so sleek, dainty, and gosh-darn-cute! Unfortunately it’s waaaaaaaay out of my price range right now. They are designed by Jessica Claire and are made for functionality and fashion. What a brilliant combination! I’ve had great comments from readers who have pointed out that this is primarily for shooting…not great for travel. And since I’m on a budget right now (and leave for a Bahama cruise in 6 days!!) I’m stuck with this guy…

6050 blackCan you hear the “Wah-wah-wah” disappointing/sad sound that they use in cartoons? This is so BULKY  compared to that sweet little Shootsac. Even though this dandy bag pictured above is no fashion statement…it was affordable, functional – it can hold 3-4 lenses PLUS my camera! – and very, very, durable. I needed something bigger to take on our cruise next week, so this is what I ended up with. Now Drew has a very public, obvious and helpful hint for my next birthday present. Shootsac honey, Shootsac.

joann - I just want to let you know that the shoot sac is a shooting tool to use while shooting..it is NOT a camera bag for storing your gear. The shoot sac is awesome if you shoot weddings and change lenses a ton, then it is a perfect tool.
I have a jill-e bag for storing my camera equipment. It is awesome for that. I hear through other blogs that they wil lhave a messenger style bag sold through HSN on July 29th. I’m hoping it is a great bag and buy as I need another one.

Kerry - Love the shoot sac as well – and I’m with the above poster – it’s all for shooting – not for travelling. The Jill-E is awesome – also out of my price range (since we bought the house) :P! When travelling, I’d always go for funcationality over looks – and then you can get a shoot sac for when you are specifically out doing a shoot or something 🙂
