Here is my review of the Epiphanie Sydney camera bag – for the mom on the go.
Three bags in one! Wear over your shoulder, cross-body, or easily transform into a backpack without removing any straps. Our slimmest bag, stays close to the body for maximum comfort, even while traveling or shooting all day! Every girl needs a Sydney in her camera bag collection. Accommodates camera body + attached lens, 1 long lens (including 70-200mm), 1-2 smaller lenses, wallet, cell phone, lip gloss, memory cards and keys. Back pocket designed to hold your iPad!
All dividers can be fully removed, so you can easily transition to an every day bag!

As many of you know, I am a mom to four that has had an aching heart for missing out on moments with my family due to leaving the “big camera” at home. Sure the iPhone pictures are better than nothing, but I really ache for having good solid pics to put into albums that capture our every day life. The goal was to find a bag that can hold a DSLR + 2 lenses (minimum) + wallet + minimal baby items (I always leave a fully stocked diaper bag in the car but take minimal items into the store with me so I don’t have to lug it all around)…and I think the Epiphanie Sydney is the solution.
Most other bags that I have tried are too cumbersome for day-to-day use. Further, I end up finding that at sessions I stay with the 50mm and 85mm (sometimes throw in the 135mm and it would definitely fit) so this would work great for working on location as well.
My favorite aspects to the bag: across body strap becomes a shoulder strap, MANY pockets, stylish, well-made.
