As a wife to a photographer, I never underestimate the importance of a good camera bag. Not only do you want something that looks nice for when you are with clients, but you also want it to be sturdy and comfortable. After all, camera equipment is expensive and can be really heavy (if you carry as much as Brett does). For me, I just have a small camera, and then when we are on vacation, I will also carry the video camera, GoPro, and any of my personal items. Although I constantly change my mind about what kind of bag to bring into the parks at WDW, the past few times, I wished I had a bag that could safely carry my camera and everything else I listed above, was easy to open (for the security checks and any time I need something), without being too big…and of course, it had to be pretty!
The Aria 3 Camera Bag from Tamrac seems like the perfect fit!
All the Aria camera bags come in several colors, and since we already have a bunch of black camera bags in this house (and this one was for ME), I chose to get this one in Berry!
Like many high-end camera bags, the Aria Series is made from a rich, smooth, water-resistant nylon fabric that feels like silk. The fabric is smooth and silky while still being incredibly durable.
The main outside flap can be easily opened/closed by a metal clasp.
The main compartment has a zip closure. Inside, there are three spots separated by 2 pads, so everything has it’s own space and isn’t bumping against anything else. I also like how the inside of the bag is silver…I think that helps with being able to find items better, as opposed to a black interior.
There are additional compartments on the outside of the bag. The front space has a zipper closer…
…and the space in the back is open with no zipper, so you can keep “quick-access” items in there. The strap can be really long if needed, and also has a thick shoulder pad.
The Aria 3 is a stylish handbag-style camera bag that holds a compact DSLR with a small lens attached, an extra lens and a flash or a mirrorless camera with a lens attached, an extra lens, and a flash. It strikes the perfect balance between elegance and functionality and provides discreet protection camera gear without advertising what’s inside.
Overall, I think this is a nice camera bag for someone that doesn’t want to carry around too much, but wants everything protected and organized.
Plus, the Berry Color provides a girly touch. If Berry isn’t your thing…then you can try black, green, brown, etc.
Tamrac also offers smaller and larger bags and backpacks, in various designs, which you can check out on their website: http://www.tamrac.com
