My search for the perfect camera bag has taken years. More often than not, I have my camera with me when I am out and about town, but the last thing I want is to look like I am carrying a camera with me. For a lot of obvious reasons, most camera bags are not only ugly, but they almost instantly brand you as a tourist or as a nice target for thieves. Frustrated with the lack of camera bag options, for years I have used (and destroyed in the process) giant handbags in place of a proper camera bag and my poor cameras paid the price of not being protected.
I was so excited when I discovered ONA Bags because I finally found a company who made high quality, stylish, good looking camera bags and I shared my love for the Brooklyn bag almost two years ago here. My Roma camera insert got a lot of use over the last year, but the Brooklyn bag that Santa brought me for Christmas has pretty much replaced every other bag I own. It fits my Mark II camera body and 2 lenses perfectly and it is so well padded, I never worry about what is inside. Now I just need another one in black and my life will be complete :)
From ONA’s website: “In Swahili, the word ona (pronounced ō’na) means, “to feel,” “to believe,” and “to experience with the eyes.” This is the essence of photography and style.”
