I believe that finding the perfect camera bag has been way more difficult than finding the right camera, lens, or flash. I have owed several different camera bags throughout my photography journey. I have liked details of all of them, but I have not loved everything about a bag until now. There has always been something that I wanted to change about my camera bags. I have owned two Kelly Moore Bags and they are gorgeous but not as durable as I want. They seem to fall apart quickly. My Copper River Bag is gorgeous and it is real leather so it will last forever, but it is not the right size and shape. I had a difficult time carrying it throughout a photo shoot. I had to put it down a lot (which I didn’t like). It is too heavy and bulky and did not lay right on me. This bag is also not as padded as I would like. I always worried about my camera in it.
I have been researching and looking for a new camera bag for a couple of years now. There are several different companies out there. I found this one bag that I had been drooling over for quite a while from 3 Annies. It was pricey and from Australia so I kept putting it off. I knew that I was going to have to spend a good amount to get the bag I wanted, but I wanted to make sure it was the right one this time. Then I found the Capri bag from ONA bags. 🙂 At first I thought that it would be too simple and did not have enough pockets to hold everything. But the more I looked at it the more I realized it was just want I needed! And here is why..
My needs in a camera bag,….
to hold my 5D mark III and 3 lenses
to hold my CF cards, batteries, phone, and keys
to keep my gear safe and protected
to have easy access for quick lens changes
to be small and light enough to carry during a photo shoot
to be stylist and not scream “I am a camera bag”
to be durable and last a long time under continued use
This gorgeous bag accomplishes all of these things. My gear easily fits and is well protected in the soft lining. There are two compartments in this bag. The main section is where my camera and lenses go. The other section, I believe is made to be able to safely hold an I pad. This is where I keep my batteries and CF cards. And then there are two small pockets on the interior that hold my phone, lip gloss, EpiPen, and lens cleaner. I have been using this bag for a couple of months now and I love everything about it!! You can wear it as a shoulder bag or it has a detachable long strap for cross-body (which is how I wear it). I know that it is difficult to choose a camera bag to fit your needs, so I hope that this has helped someone in their search for the perfect camera bag. If you have any questions about the bag please feel free to ask me. Here are a few photos of my ONA Capri. 🙂
