Handbag-Style Camera Bags For Women

While there is no one-size fits all when it comes to camera bags, there are plenty of options on the market that accommodate a variety of needs. The best camera handbags offer storage for all your gear and features that stand out in a crowd, such as a unique design or sleek color. These bags also provide protection from weather and a safe place to store your laptop or tablet.

Many photographers carry more than just cameras and lenses, including personal items such as a wallet or passport, water bottles, snacks, charging cords and more. If you plan to use your bag for longer outings or as a travel bag, you will want to have room to store these non-camera items as well. Depending on what type of photography you do, you may want to include additional organizational features such as a padded tablet sleeve or multiple zippered compartments for organizing accessories and other miscellaneous gear.

The K&F Concept Lumina is a good option for carrying more than just a camera, as it can accommodate a 13-inch laptop and multiple smaller devices such as a smartphone or small flashlight. The padded interior is customizable using removable dividers and you can even fit a small tripod into the front pocket. This bag also features two zippered compartments for other equipment, such as batteries or an extra lens.

With a clean look that makes it one of the few cute handbag-style camera bags for women on the market, this backpack offers plenty of space to store all your essentials and then some. It has a separate dedicated laptop compartment and a set of FlexFold dividers that can be mounted horizontally or vertically for more efficient organization. It’s a comfortable backpack to carry, thanks to its thick padding and stowable shoulder straps that tuck away when not in use. It’s a versatile camera bag that can also be carried as a crossbody with the attached waist belt or by its handle.

Unlike other larger camera backpacks, the Manfrotto Pro Light Flexloader L can be carried with quick side access to the camera compartment without needing to unzip the entire bag. The front panel of the camera bag also opens up for easy access to your camera and can be customized by arranging the three removable dividers. This camera bag is great for those shoots where you need to bring your whole kit or as a stylish alternative to a large messenger bag when sightseeing.

For those times when you need to grab your camera quickly while out in the rain, a waterproof camera bag is a must. The Think Tank Photo Streetwalker is designed with this purpose in mind and uses a waterproof material that repelled water when tested. It’s also a comfortable backpack to wear on long days of urban shoots, due to its padded wide straps and slim design. The main camera compartment can fit up to a DSLR or mirrorless camera with a lens attached and there’s also space for a 10-inch tablet in the top pack compartment.
