A camerabag on the beach.

Yes I know, there has been a lot of camerabag post lately. This is because I bought three new camerabags at the same time. Now the last one have arrived and here it is.

This is my absolute favorite. A very stable model that stands for itself even though there is nothing in it. Today it got to accompany me to the beach for a beach shoot.

I bough it on aliexpress.com, a chinese low price website that has about everything. It has all the expensive original camera models as lowepro and national geographic series (to a lower price, at least for Swedes) as well as these vintage, no brand, models that is more of an accessory bag than a traditional camerabag.

  1. Hur många har du nu?
    Snart har du samma problem som jag just upptäckte…alla saker, alla kläder, skor och väskor har nu växt överhuvudet på mig.
    Jag försökte nu sortera bort några men inte gick något vidare. Så nu är jag rätt så deppig över mig själv . 🙁

    • haha. Jo jag har ju sålt lite på tradera. Ska fortsätta med det, men man blir ju rätt trött på det. Har två väskor jag behöver sälja. Ska lägga ut dem. En är för liten för min och en är inte riktigt min stil.

      • Ju jag funderar också på Tradera men det är rätt mycket jobb för ganska så lite pengar.
        Undrar vilket är bättre Blocket som är med fastpris eller med Tradera där folk får licitera. Var inne på en tjejs sida hon hade 52 plagg upplagda men det var bara på 2 som någon bjöd. Och det stannade på 44 kr. Inte mycket.
        Och så ta en massa bilder tar ju mycket tid också.

        • Ja men jag la ut mina klänningar för t ex 79 kr osv och de som är mindre värda för 29 kr t ex. Alla blev sålda. Men ja, man kan tjäna mer på konstiga saker, som Martin köpte en kokbok för 500 spänn på tradera. Det är säkert dubbla priset för vad den gick för frånbörjan. Kameragrejerna kan man ju lägga dyrare utropspris för, det man kan tänka sig att sälja för. Men ja, kameraväskor är ju heller inte så mycket värda, även om de var dyra från början. Den jag har kostade runt 500 pix, jag tänker att jag kan få 79 kr för den på tradera typ. Men du bor ju i Stockholm och då blir det enklare, för då kan man skippa frakten och bara sälja där..

  2. Stunning! Exactly what I’m looking from my Fuji X-Pro1. Do you know Billingham? They look alike (your other one is spot on Billingham).
    You have a fine taste I must say 😉

    • No I don’t actually but thank you anyway! Love them. Cheap Chinese bags (ooops) :))) commented on one of your posts through the phone but not sure it worked..

        • Yes, well. Actually I looked on some other camerabags as well, some swedish made etc, very nice leather and all, but yeah, you know the price *oh my*. I think it was about 500 dollars. I bough three from this chinese site and I pad less than a 100 dollars for them all. And the bigger one I actually carry my work laptop in as well as wallet, two phones, papers, chargers etc. Kind of good quality actually. 🙂 worth it!

          • Is that the red one? Or the other? They really look great. I will check their website. I have one of the big backpacks which cost me quite a bit. I used to carry the 5D and all the gear in it but now it’s just too big following my downsizing.

  3. How’re your aliexpress bags holding up after using them for a few months now? I stumbled onto your red bag page after trying to find reviews of buying bags from aliexpress. I’m interested in a Lowepro (not sure if they are genuine) and more casual bag like your vintage one. 🙂

    • Hi Eric!

      They are holding up great: I have three bags from there, one black and brown (this one you commented on), one green and one red. Must say that the best ”quality” would be the black one and maybe the green one. The red one isn´t of poor quality but wont hold my heavy mark iii for many times of usage or with a heavy lens on.

      I like this one the best. My Mark iii fits with the 24-105 mm (medium big) lens on as well as a small wallet, iphone and lipstick (not sure if you carry that 😉 ).

      I´m not sure but I think the Lowepro´s are real? It is just that it is a Chinese site so it is basically the price direct from the factory. I have a lowepro, not from there, and I love mine. They are of great quality. Mine costed 1200 sek :(. On Aliexpress the same one costs lik 400 (30%) of what mine costed.

      Do you have a blog on your own/ are a photographer/ hobby or something?

      • Hi Katarina,

        Thanks for the update. With this I feel much safer about buying from aliexpress, as I’ve never bought from there before.

        I think I’ll get a big Lowepro, a fashionable bag like what you have, and perhaps even a softbox (I think I saw one at less than $3).

        I don’t carry a lipstick, but occasionally bring a small flashlight out with me. The bag you featured in this blogpost looks very ladylike and pretty, and the flashlight definitely doesn’t match up to it. So perhaps this one fits me more: http://katarinawohlfart.com/2014/07/05/new-camera-equipment-a-vintagelooking-camera-bag/

        I am a photographer by hobby and have a related blog which I started recently, but have almost immediately neglected. When it’s respectable enough maybe I’ll post back and let you know 🙂

        • haha 🙂 Please post me back then! I love checking out other blogs. If not please come back and comment on my photos. What kind of photos do you like?

          Well. I am happy with the service from Aliexpress.The bag you linked I use for work and have used for four months carrying one laptop+wallet+keys+a map with my work papers. It is very heavy and have gotten through four months without any damage! 🙂 Something that you need to know about Ali is that when you order you will get different packages since Aliexpress is something like a joint site for several companies (I think). At least I got several. It was also very funny running to the store five times the same week with different packages from China. When collecting the last few packages I was very embarresed and started to think that someone might think that I was importing something illegal. haha 🙂
