Special Guest Personal Shopper: A FUN-ctional Camera Bag for Alena

We're crafty like the next gal, but definitely not born artistes, so when we heard Alena's plight, we knew just where to go. Alena says, "Hi Outblush Team! I have been saving for a loooong time and finally bought myself a good (i.e., expensive) camera. It's a Canon EOS 50D and I need a cute way to tote it around. I'm open to a backpack or a cross-body bag. I'd love something pretty, yet functional that is easy to carry and distributes the weight evenly."

Well, Alena, let's direct you to the professionals, mmmk, hon? Meggan Haller from Keyhole Photo jumped right in when we were stumped. "Hi Alena, Meggan here to help you find a cute camera bag that's also ergonomic...Tall order by the way. I've rounded up a group of likely candidates, some more back-friendly than others. Word of advice: switch shoulders periodically to avoid Photographer's Neck (No I didn't make that up. I suffer from it daily. It's the only reason I wear a fanny pack, er, does hip-pack sound cooler?)"

1 - The Bowler Camera Bag ($40)

2 - 5 Million Dollar Home ($82)

3 - Sidekick Canvas Bag ($65)

4 - The Shootsac ($150, available in lots of cuuuute patterns)

5 - Jill-e small leather camera bag ($170)

6 - Kelly Moore B-Hobo bag ($160, available in 4 colors)

Outblush: thanks for covering this. I too, am an amateur with my dSLR and I have a Nikon branded bag to haul all my lenses, but I don't always want to take them everywhere. I've been smitten with the expensive Jill-e bag for ages. I was hoping I'd like one of your less expensive options more, but I'm still stick on that one.
