Crushing on Another @EpiphanieBags Review and Giveaway
I’ve had several camera’s over the years, upgrading each time for quality of photograph, but it wasn’t until about a year ago that I joined the world of DSLR cameras with my Canon Rebel TSi3. I was taking decent photo’s on the manual setting of my Canon Powershot point and shoot but new I needed something with more detail for my many recipes.
Before I go any further, just look at that bag and tell me you aren’t crushing on it BIG time.
With my new DSLR camera and interchangeable lenses in hand I knew I needed to protect it with a camera case so I set out to the stores. What I found was boring, plain and shockingly expensive for something I would almost be embarrassed lugging around; until I found Epiphanie.
I couldn’t believe my eyes at the gorgeousness that stared back at me. All shades of colours, numerous fashionable styles for woman and men and bags that could easily pass for a purse. It’s not often I get really excited about a product, the kind of excited that makes you want to convince everyone you know that this will be their next purchase but Epiphanie had me at “Stella“. In my opinion, Epiphanie is to camera bags what Madonna was to pop music, a complete Rolling Stones magazine worthy kind of rockstar.
This beauty of a bag, shown here in olive colour, is not just for looks; this camera bag is heavy duty prepped for a walk with the stroller on the town packed full of your DSLR gear without the worry that your camera may end up damaged. Looking at the stitch-work alone, I can tell extra care was laid in the overall design to ensure a solid case for one of my most prized possessions, my camera. The rivets, the strap and zippers, every part of the design comes together in a secure package.
The inside of the camera bag gets even better, a soft fabric covering the entire inside with fabric covered separators that can be removed or adjusted with Velcro fasteners to work around your camera and lenses for just the right fit of protection. The design of the inside compartment is just what your camera needs to avoid damage while transporting between photo-shoots. Personally, I take my camera everywhere with me. Most of my photography leans towards food but I love to take as many candid shots as I can and I love that this Stella bag, as do many Epiphanie bags, looks like a fashionable compliment to my outfit.
Epiphanie is not just for women. There are many fashion-forward camera bags for men in very manly colours and styles, like this “London” backpack style in burnt orange. Hubs may not be into wearing my Stella bag but I think this colour would be absolutely handsome on him. A good looking bag, in a complimentary colour and it doubles for a laptop bag? The perfect Father’s Day or birthday gift idea.
