ONA has just announced a brand new camera bag: the ONA Savannah. This is a smaller camera bag not designed to hold a whole lot of stuff and instead really targeted at the photographer who has a small kit on them and worries about the whole editing process at a later time frame. The bag is made of all leather and has a foam padded interior, magnetic closure, and zip pockets.
Just a reminder to everyone that we’ve got a two day food photography intensive workshop coming up this weekend in Brooklyn, NY. Attendees will be treated to a three course dinner, shooting photos for their own portfolio, a free camera bag and a critique session.
More details are after the jump.
The Pakk is a brand new camera bag that is touting itself to be both functional and stylish–and of any company out there so far they seem to be the closest to getting it right. Peak Design, Vinta, ONA, WANDRD, and Langly all come close but they’re all missing one or two small things to make their bags absolutely flawless. However, the Pakk seems to be the backpack that every discerning photographer will want: on paper at least.
When it comes to choosing a camera bag the more casual, versatile and travel-friendly everyday bags are becoming increasingly popular vs of camera equipment-dedicated bags. On a day to day basis we carry a bag with a load of other items besides the camera. In a recent Kickstarter project by Udee, they’re aiming to create a highly versatile backpack with many useful features in mind.
The never ending struggle as a photographer is finding that perfect bag. The one that carries everything you need it to without a ton of wasted space, that also looks good and matches your unique style. The one that can double as a camera bag, or a travel bag when needed.
For most of us, we never really find the one bag that covers it all, instead resorting to multiple bags for each use. This is expensive and not very space efficient (just ask my wife) but, lucky for us, there is a new option on the horizon that could be the answer to all our prayers – The 48hr Switch.

More and more, I’ve been leaning away from messenger bags and towards backpacks. No one has really gotten what I want perfectly, but some are close. When you consider what Vinta makes, the Vinta S series of backpacks seem very much in line with what lots of photographers would want. They’re stylish, minimal, low profile, and able to carry a fair amount of gear if you’re a mirrorless camera user. The company markets it to being used by outdoor and landscape photographers very often. But in real life use, it seems to be better for city trekkers.
Without a doubt, some of the most luxurious camera bags on the market are made in England by Hawkesmill. Not only are the bags luxurious, but they’re also built very well overall for the most part. With the new release of the smaller versions of the company’s larger bags, there have been a few changes. For example, the Hawkesmill Jermyn Street camera bag has a few new updates like the use of a hook system to keep the bag closed.
Otherwise though, it’s business as always: a beautiful bag that’s well built.
Cosyspeed is a camera bag manufacturer that was initially known for creating some pretty suped up fanny packs for photographers. In some ways, they kind of are–but they’ve also evolved quite a bit with the company’s Streetomatic making a decent sling bag. Now, Cosyspeed is releasing their CAMSLINGER Streetomatic+. This is a camera bag that is a bit larger and designed to accommodate larger mirrorless cameras and even serious DSLRs without a grip and that have a lens attached.
What Cosyspeed has always valued is quick access to your camera, and for the most part they’ve done a pretty good job in their improvements over the years.
