I have been trying to find either a camera bag or case or insert for my new camera. I already haul around a big purse so I was leaning less and less towards a dedicated camera bag.
I stumbled upon Zakka Nouveau recently and was struck by her beautiful bento bags. She designed them for a friend to carry snacks. I ordered one almost immediately. It was a beat later that I wondered if it could serve as a camera insert.
The bag arrived yesterday and it seems promising. The little handle allows you to fish the camera out of your bag. It is a little bit snug to maneuver the camera in and out of the bag. And the camera might benefit from a bit more padding such as a layer of batting. But I am eager to give it a try. In any case, it will protect the camera screen from scratches (e.g., from keys, knitting needles, Blythe's head, Diet Coke can, ktl., ktl.).
And it is very, very cute!
