According to the CEA (consumer electronics association) 64% of women would rather have a digital camera than a pair of half-carat diamond stud earrring.
I've been looking for my ideal camera bag, which is how I came across this research. My ideal camera does not exist, I have realised. You see, I want something that isn't too bulky. I don't have a lot of gear just my camera & a couple of extra little things. I'm after a bag that doesn't look like a camera bag, you know the ones: big, black, bulky.
I want colour, I want style. I want something that will last forever. I'm not afraid to pay a bit more if it ticks all the boxes. I want something that will protect my camera because I'm a bit rough with my gear.
Which has led on to this thought: what if I designed my perfect bag and got it made?
It's not impossible. It's even concievable that there are other ladies out there who don't want the standard-mans-photographer bag. Hmmm....
Has anyone ever made their own bag? Or dreamed of it? Or already has their perfect bag?
