Do you have a bag to carry your digital camera in when you travel? If you've been relegating the camera to an all-purpose bag, or using no camera bag at all, it may be time to upgrade to a more functional case.
The best camera bag cases provide sufficient padding to protect a camera against being dropped and they provide dedicated areas for accessories. When packing a bag for your next travel getaway, consider protecting your digital camera in one of these cases, organized by size.
I'm a huge fan of Pacsafe bags. They're designed as defenses against the unpleasant possibilities of travel -- bag snatchers, slashers, and tamperers. While no camera bag is safe against a full-on attack, this one is your best bet for combatting petty criminals. It has a strong mesh slashguard on the shoulder strap and bottom, zippers that are tamperproof, and a built-in combination lock. There's also room for water bottles on the sides and other travel items inside.
If you travel with more than a digital camera — say, a D/SLR with an extra lens or two, you need a bigger camera bag. And this well-organized, lightweight 9.5" x 10.5" x 8.5" model can do the trick. It's got plenty of pockets and ample partitions that you can arrange to suit your needs. Plus, it looks great and is available in several colors of tough, weather resistant, yet ultra-lightweight nylon and neoprene.
This "hoodie-style" little protector in neoprene measures 5" x 4" x .75" like a glove. It has no strap but is small enough to fit into a pocket or purse.
This camera bag for serious amateurs is ideal for when you travel and need to reach for your camera, fast: The size zip enables quick access to your equipment. Measuring 9.75" x 7.5" x 5", this compact backpack is weather-resistant. Travel photographers who carry bigger cameras and more equipment are advised to trade up to other best-in-class Lowepro
