The Best 35 Camera Bags for Women

By January 21, 2020 No Comments

For years, both the fashion world and traditional manufacturers of camera bags were guilty of ignoring the women’s market. But in recent years, there’s been a significant change. Now, there is a huge variety of camera bags for women available in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and quality levels. Of course, this means that with plenty of choices comes the question of how to pick the right camera bag for yourself or the woman in your life. First, there’s the question of aesthetics. If the preference is for traditional more, manly looking bags, there are thousands of options on the market. Still, if you’re looking specifically for camera bags that have a more female appeal, you’ve landed on the right article. We’ve also extensively covered the best camera backpacks you can buy.

Once you’ve decided upon a look for your women’s camera bag, it’s time to think about functionality. What kind of equipment do you shoot with? A DSLR? A mirrorless camera, perhaps a point-and-shoot? Depending on what your shooting workflow is and what type of camera and lenses you typically like to carry around, you’ll find there are plenty of choices around size, compartment, and styles. This of-course includes the wildly popular purse-like women’s camera bags, as well as more traditional styles such as shoulder bags, holster cases, backpacks, totes, and sling bags. The industry has decided to lump many camera bags for women into the “fashion camera bags” category, and with that, we’ve worked hard to curate what we think are the 40 best and most beautiful camera bags for women.

1. Rofozzi - Full Grain Leather DSLR Camera Bag for Women

Rofozzi Full Grain Leather DSLR Camera Bag for Women

This women’s camera bag by Rofozzi falls into the camera briefcase category but can easily double as a larger purse. In addition to being able to hold up to a Nikon or Canon full-sized DSLR or Mirrorless with lens camera, it can also function as a multi-purpose bag/purse. The vintage leather style provides a stylish, somewhat rugged look and includes a protective padded insert to protect your camera gear. What I like most about this camera bag is its medium size and plethora of compartments and pockets, as well as the ease of access it provides to your gear. Like with all leather products, expect some graceful aging to the leather look.

 Hunter Leather
Includes a padded insert
Fits DSLR camera of similar size as Nikon D3200 with 18-55 mm lens
Plenty of space for other accessories including up to a 16 inch laptop, tablets, phones, etc.

It, of-course, also comes with an adjustable shoulder strap.

As with all good camera bags, the inside is padded and includes an optional removable shoulder strap.

9. Epiphanies Travel Co. - Cortina Camera Bag

Epiphanie Cortina Camera Bag for Women

Don’t expect this camera bag to hold a whole lot more than your DSLR camera + one lens. But perhaps what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in looks. It’s light, it’s made of leather and includes gorgeous and functional interior padding. Additionally, each bag comes with a leather one-of-a-kind vintage embroidered strap.

That’s where the Luna Vegan camera bag comes in to play. From brand, Kelly Moore, this stylish women’s camera bag can hold up to a DSLR camera with an attached 8 inch lens, or a camera body plus two lenses.

But versatility in terms of style should also be valued. And that’s where the color of black comes in.

I know there are a lot of people that prefer a backpack for their camera gear. In fact, it’s what I use whenever I’m out doing a full-fledged photo shoot or even travelling. I find that setup to be most comfortable in most cases as I tend to carry a fair bit of gear with me and often times my backpack doubles as a  bag for other travel necessities.  All that said, I’m surprised I haven’t featured more camera backpacks for women in this list thus far. This waxed canvas bag from maker ONA is a fairly large backpack that’s been designed to carry up to a DSLR lens with 70-200mm lens attached plus SEVEN additional lenses.

22. Kattee Fashion Leather Canvas DSLR Camera Bag

Kattee Camera Backpack Canvas for Women

Given the fact that it comes from the Kattee brand of camera bags and the overwhelmingly positive reviews, I’m honestly a little surprised at how incredibly affordable this bag is given its quality.

Made of high-quality leather, this camera bag is wear-resistant and shrink-proof. With enough padded room for a full-sized DSLR body + plenty of lenses and additional outside pockets, as well as the ability to convert into a more general-purpose backpack, I highly recommend this bag.

For such situations, this small leather camera bag for women made by manufacturer ZLYC might be the ideal bag for you. It’s what I would call a practical size and really doesn’t have much more room inside of it outside of a DSLR sized camera with attached lens. Sure there’s some side-pockets, pen slots, phone holder, and a front and rear pocket perhaps big enough for a small notebook, but you won’t be toting much more gear than that. Luckily, even though it’s small it still has a nice interior padded compartment.

Available in three color combinations, it’s probably fair to describe this camera bag as both petite and elegant.

Billingham Hadley Small Camera Bag

I’m not going to pretend that this is a cheap camera bag for women. Because it’s not. It’s also not the most fashionable thing on this list, but what it may lack in looks and color options, it more than makes up in quality. You see, the Billingham name has, at least in bag manufacturing circles become synonymous with extreme high quality. Everything, from the materials used, to the craftsmanship, to the usability is at a level that most camera bag manufacturers don’t cross into. Do yourself and check out this bag.

33. Pompidoo - Amsterdam Unisex Camera Bag

Another decidedly stunningly beautiful camera bag from the folks at Pompidoo. They call it a Unisex bag, and sure, I can see a few gentlemen carrying this around, but without a doubt I think this camera bag was designed with women in mind. Made of incredibly exquisite Italian leather that looks like it belongs on an beautifully aged horse saddle, this camera bag can fit a full sized DSLR along with up to 2-3 lenses (depending on size). I particularly like the hook clasp on the front flap which stands out as a unique feature I haven’t seen on too many camera bags for women. Dual top-handles and a removable cross-body shoulder strap top off this stunner of a bag.

Key Features

Padded main compartment with removable and customizable dividers
Can fit up to a 10 inch tablet.
Accordion-style pocket with organizer and a zippered rear pocket

35. TOG - The Mini Tog Bag

Tog - The Mini Tog Camera Backpack

And for our final camera bag on what I hope was a useful list of camera bags for women appears what is possibly the cutest camera backpack I’ve ever come across. I mean this thing is tiny, but still somehow useful. It won’t be holding much more than DSLR with a small-to mid-size lens, but its compact size has its own advantages. It’s not bulky, it’s clean, and again, just gosh-darn cute. And even though it may be somewhat dimunitive in stature it still has enough sections and pockets for things like notepads, business cars, phones, etc. Bonus points for being made with vegan leather.
