    Default Protection for camera in handbag

    Hi, camera bag is too bulky for a usual working day.

    Anyone can suggest a protection for a typical DSLR camera with lens?
    I wanna put it in my bag.

    I saw this http://www.pursesitter.com/purse-organizer/pursein.htm
    But the partition still not good. Any better opinion (design)?

    TIA

    you can consider using Soft Pouch by Optech, local agent is Cathy Photo, but you can get it from other camera stores as well, get the right size for your camera may take a little searching.

    hope this help.

    Since its for inside handbag, might as well just go Daiso, get $2 laptop zipbag/pouch...

    you can also use a normal bag filled with sponge/ some soft protection to absorb shock, and use a sock to cover over the lens if you are afraid of scratches

    I think TS is thinking of putting the camera inside her hand bag and bring it to work everyday, as and when take it out to snap a few photos along the way to work or home...

    so need something proper looking, fast and easy to open it up and keeping.

    another CSer has camera body pouches offer on Mass Sales, but it is suppose to use it without lens attached.

    i remember you can use stuff like this, but i am not sure if you can get it in singapore, or if it is usable on dslr with lens.

    but they're called camera wraps. maybe uncle catchlights knows more..

    camera wrap is make of neoprene, have velcro on the corners, so you can wrap your item in any shape as long the wrap is big enough, rather flexible.

    Saw some of these available in stationery stores, you also can consider the Optech products, and any other similar products available it many major camera stores.

    hope this help.

    i use a beanie when i carry my backpack, it fits well, just nice! sometimes i'll wrap it with cloth first.the cloth not too thick if not it becomes too bulky.

    The OpTech case is something i highly recommend. unfortunately, CP carries a limited selection of the DSLR pouches. you may need to order it from the US. i got mine from http://www.procameragear.com/. Hope this helps.
