My Camera Case - Not Just Another Fashion Accessory!

Waterfield Designs | Pic Pocket | Camera Case I've often written about one of the biggest loves in my life, handbags. However, I've rarely mentioned some of the other accessory bags that I have and so often use.

One such bag is the compact WaterField Designs camera case in the “blue indium” color. I just love this little gem and I always get compliments from everyone who spots it. Say goodbye to that bulky, black case you got at the camera store. This case is compact, protective and very cute! It's gorgeous and feels good to hold and carry.

More than Just Another Fashion Accessory!

It’s tough to choose, but possibly my favorite design aspect of the Pic Pocket is a mountaineering carabiner that comes attached to every case. It's a really functional design feature. I use it to attach my case to the strap of my handbag, or to one of the belt loops on my skinnies, and even to one of the handbrake cables at the front of my bike when I go cycling. Now, rather than fumbling through the junk in my handbag every time a good shot presents itself…I just grab my camera from its nifty case that’s always right there and ready. I’ve managed to shoot some hilarious candids this way.

The 6 Colors of the Waterfield Designs | Pic Pocket | Camera Case

The Pic Pocket is padded with shock-absorbing, plush neoprene and lined with a super-soft liner that doesn’t scratch my camera. The cases are manufactured in the US and it really shows in the quality and craftsmanship. The outside is framed with black ballistic nylon and you can choose from six colors for the sides (see picture above), including three colors of soft leather. The case closes with self-locking zippers so I know my camera will never fall out accidentally. Inside two pockets flush with the sides are great for carrying my license and credit card.

I love my Pic Pocket Camera Case and highly recommend it on account of the unique styling, compact size and functionality, as well as the good protection it provides from daily bumps and bruises. My only complaint with WaterField Designs is that it doesn’t make a case for my SLR…yet.

The Pic Pocket Compact Camera Case is available from WaterField Designs at $29-33. Each color is available in eight sizes. And it's easy to find the right case for your particular camera. Simply use the online sizing chart to find your camera and choose the right size. If you don’t see your camera listed, you can email them as I did and they’ll happily help you find the right one for your particular camera.
