I’m usually not one to post a lot of photographer reviews (perhaps that will change), but I’ve got one for you today.
I’ve been on a search for the “perfect” camera bag for quite some time. Until now, I’ve been utilizing a combination of the following to carry my gear: StudioCruzer Pelican Case (transporting all gear), LowePro Slingshot (outdoor backpack), and a Shootsac (day-of wedding: storing lenses and other small items). All of these are great for photo gear storage, yet none of them are casual enough [in my opinion] to carry around as an everyday bag.
Now, I’m aware that many companies make camera/purse/messenger bags (Kelly Moore, Epiphanie, and several others). Unfortunately, none of these companies currently make a bag that fit my personal style.
When I stumbled across ONA, I was in love. The Palma is a high-quality camera bag that fits everything that I need, is comfortable, and is 100% my style when it comes to fashion. It’s also fantastic, as it doesn’t scream “Hey, look! I have a camera in here!”
Pictured above: 5DMk3 + 50mm f/1.2, 35mm f/1.4, Wallet, Keys, iPad (the bulky original), Samsung Galaxy SIII (Phone)
Above: Everything fit and nothing was forced in. There’s plenty of room (height-wise) for a 135mm f/2, as opposed to the 35mm f/1.4 (pictured). As you can see: I didn’t use the front pocket, but it easily fit my wallet + phone.
Below: The back of the bag, with a pocket that comfortably fits an iPad.
Here’s a macro shot. The leather is beautiful and the stitching is so nice and high-quality. Not to mention, I love the color: Cognac.
If you’re a photographer reading this, I’d love to hear about your favorite camera bag! :)
