Compact camera bags
Compact camera bags are made for small cameras. They have a compact and lightweight design that can hold a camera and some accessories. They are further subcategorized according to materials: closed cell foam bags, thermo-molded nylon bags, and leather camera bags.
Closed-cell foam camera bags
Closed-cell foam camera bags can be made of polyester or nylon. They provide excellent protection. They can have additional zippered pockets on the outside for storing accessories such as film or batteries.
Thermo-molded nylon camera bags
Thermo-molded nylon camera bags are made of sturdy nylon materials molded to provide crush resistance. They have a soft lining that protects the camera from abrasions. They are less bulky than the closed-cell foam models.
Leather camera bags
Leather camera bags are made of full-grain leather. They provide excellent protection, durability, and style. They have less padding than the other types.
Larger SLR camera bags
Larger SLR camera bags are designed for holding and storing compact video equipment, mainly SLR cameras. They are made for outdoor use.
They can be made of rugged polyester or nylon with closed-cell padding foam for extra protection. Most models have adjustable internal dividers for storing several compact cameras or cameras in varying sizes.
Larger SLR camera bags can be made with a rectangular design or triangular design to fit SLR cameras and their lenses exactly. They have several internal and external pockets for keeping camera accessories such as lenses, batteries, film, and memory cards. They can come with tripod bags for storing adjustable tripods.
