Words By Emma Kay.

A new style of camera bag looks set to revolutionise the way women carry their DSLR.

Baltic photographer Irina Kuzmina has created pompidoo, a versatile handbag that fits a DSLR in as well as all your keys, purse and other essential items.

Made from natural leather, the bags are designed to provide easy access to your camera, while still remaining elegant and stylish.  Pompidoo say the bags are designed for the busy everyday female photographer, and they address several common issues that women photographers have, such as feeling like a tourist with a huge camera bag or worrying that thieves will target them because of their equipment bag.

The 'camera handbag' is available in a variety of colours and is priced at €284.99 (around £251.00).

Pompidoo also say they're in the process of creating a male version of this multi functional handbag, so watch this space. For more information, go to the Pompidoo website.

Surely a bright red handbag is likely to attract even more attention ?

PS
The two ladies that run the company look stunners though..... they can carry my camera "handbag" any day Wink

I don't think they've done too much research. I'd never carry a bag like this. The wrong shape, a bit cramped and far too expensive.

What a cool bag! And from leather...expensive but veeery desirable!

Don't know about research, I just love it!

251.00??!? Only a woman would spend that much on a bag. And no doubt on the matching shoes (I'm surprised Pompidoo don't offer them as an option. A marketting opportunity missed there).

I have lots of velcro dividers from different camera bags. I am going to make a trip to the craft store and try to modify a handbag I have for the (many) times when I don't want to carry my camera bag. Might be fun. I love the bag, though.SmileSmile
