Epiphanie Camera Bag Review


 About Epiphanie

Epiphanie was started four years ago by professional photographer Maile (pronounced Mylie) Wilson. At the time, there were no cute camera bags for women. She hated lugging around a separate, bulky man-bag. So she’d end up leaving her camera at home or shoving it into her purse wrapped up in whatever was nearby; a towel, sock, sweatshirt. Obviously that isn’t the best way to protect expensive gear. When she realized that stylish camera bags for women didn’t exist, she decided to create her own line. And it was obvious that she wasn’t alone in a need for them. When Epiphanie launched in 2009, there were already almost 10,000 people on the waiting list, with all kinds of funny stories about the different things they used to wrap up their cameras: diapers, pot holders, even maxi pads! Four years later, the collection has expanded from three to twelve styles and over 60 different bags that accommodate cameras, laptops and even backpacks for men. And there’s lots more to come!

My Review

I remember how excited I was when I first purchased my Nikon and all the fun I had with it the first few months. I would bring it with me absolutely everywhere, finding any excuse I could to use it. I purchased an average case with it, one that served it’s purpose and did a fine job protecting it. However, it was hideous, small and didn’t allow me to carry all of my supplies. Overtime I started bringing my camera with me less and less because I dreaded having to carry around my camera bag. Not only was the bag less than attractive, it was also awkward to carry around, there was simply nothing about this bag I loved. I thought that it would be simple to find a replacement bag that was both stylish and efficiently protected my camera. There just wasn’t anything out there that I found worthy of both titles and so I found my self stuck with I camera bag I hated.

I recently came across an ad for company called Epipahnie in which I assumed sold gorgeous and stylish purses, only to discover that  they were actually camera bags. While breezing through their website I instantly fell in love with their style and found myself amazed at the fact that these were camera bags. Now I am an extreme girly girl, my eyes light up over anything pink, sparkly or animal print. Vibrant and unique colors are something I am not afraid to sport and will always purchase my clothes and accessories in that color scheme. I could not believe how many different style bags they had in such great colors, the choices were just fabulous! 

There was on particular bag called the Lola in a gorgeous pink shade that I fell in love with almost instantly. There are few things that you order online that exceed your expectations once seeing them in person and I have to say that this bag was one of them. The bag was so much roomier than I had anticipated and the color was a hundred times more beautiful than expected. I was delighted to discover that there was more than enough space to carry not only my camera gear, but everything else I would need for the day. Meaning I could use this as my one single purse when going out for the day. There is not a single negative attribute I could express about this bag, it provides everything you need in a camera bag and then some!

 If you are looking for a casual strap to carry the bag over your arm, the Lola provides plenty of comfort and support for that.

If you have a longer day in store and would feel more comfortable carrying your bag over the shoulder, the cushioned strap will provide plenty of all day comfort.

 The little details and accents give the bag a little extra oomph and a dash of uniqueness. The camera key chain does a fantastic job completing the look for this bag!

 I was able to fit my Nikon D3100 camera and lens in the bag, along with my charging station, memory card case, cleaning kit/supplies and I still have plenty of room for extras! Epiphanie Camera Bag Review

  1. Epiphanie bags are so gorgeous, I’ve wanted one for ages. This Lola bag looks great, one worth considering when when I can finally afford to get one.

  9. I love these bags! I wish they would have been around when I was lugging my “ugly” camera bag around during daughter’s school days. I like that it does not look like you are carrying a camera bag.

  10. Thanks for sharing they do look like regular bags from the outside and come in such great colors.

  11. I like the fact that these bags are not only pretty – but big enough – i’m one of those gals who likes to carry a LOT of stuff…. ๐Ÿ˜€

However the pink one you have is very pretty.Thankyou for the awesome review. Your Photo illustrations leave nothing behind..Have a wonderful day…

  19. Just looking at the pics and reading your review. I went to the website and looked at the different bags. Love them all looks like good quality

  20. I have been trying to win this Lola Bag since I fell in love with it about 6 months ago. It is big and spaceous for your camera and equipment. Plus it is Cute as can be!!! I never thought I’d find a beautiful camera bag.

  21. I don’t see a place to leave a comment on the other page with the giveaway, so I came back here. I don’t know where to leave a comment. I like the Ginger in Blue Slate too. But the Lola is the bag for me.

  24. So cute! I’d not heard of Epiphanie before. I’m in the market for a camera bag right now and am so glad to have found this review!

  25. These bags are so functional and beautiful! What a nice idea put into execution.

  26. I love that the designer used to wrap her camera in a towel, sock, whatever – because that is EXACTLY what I do every time I go out with my camera. And it is such a pain to take out and put back away that I don’t end up taking many pictures at all! Great bags

  27. I love Epiphanie bags because they come in such beautiful styles and colors. I love a big pocketbook, so I would use the bag for a pocketbook even when I don’t need my cameras.

  28. i totally agree with your review of the epiphanie camera bags. i love the padded cross body strap so you can keep your hands free. the colors and roominess of these beautiful bags are incredible!! they appear to be roomy enough to put everything you would need for a day, whether taking pictures or just being out and about. i cannot afford one, but i enter every contest that is giving one away because i want one that bad!

  29. I have absolutely dreamed of having a beautiful camera bag, instead of my ugly bulky boring bag. This would be amazing! Thank you for the opportunity!

  30. I absolutely LOVE the CHARLOTTE – Metallic Chevron! It is gorgeous, and to add the Camera Charm on it would be the cherry on top!

  31. This bag is such a great idea. A fun cute way to carry your camera around instead of putting it in a big black bulky bag.

  32. I’ve had my Lola for 2-3 years. It still looks new. It is fantastic and you can us it to carry everything. I love love love it.

  33. This has to be the first brand of camera bag that I have fallen in love with.. like how can a bag be so stylish and functional! I thought it was only a purse.. when I found it was also a camera bag, it was love at first sight! I currently don’t even have a bag for my new camera.. I wish I had the money!

  34. I love the styles, colors and all that room! My niece is about to graduate from highscholl and is going to college to study photography.This would be a great gift for her!

  35. This is my favorite Epiphanie bag and I really like the pink. Thanks for doing a great review, I am glad you liked it. Maybe now i can use your positive review as my excuse to buy one!

  36. So fashionable and yet unique idea to fit all stuffs including camera ,I love the pink color

  37. I am so in love with this bag. I just got my first DSLR and I’ve been tossing it in my diaper bag for lack of better storage. This would be perfect! And I love that little camera charm.

  38. When I was in high school and had to carry around my manual 35mm camera everywhere…I hated it!! The case was so bulky and was not very easy to carry around (just like yours). I thought that these were purses also…which Im sure they could be used a such IF a camera isnt in it! lol I have been wanting a new camera for the longest time just havent had the heart to spend that kind of money on myself plus where would I put it since my 35mm is still in my old carrier.

  39. When I was growing up I wanted nothing to do with girlie things, especially anything pink (please, are you kidding me). When I entered the Epiphanie giveaway, I thought immediatly of a black bag so my husband would carry it. Then I saw the “pink” extremely pink and I new that was the one. Funny how we grow up and our tastes change.

  40. I have that same bag, but in mustard yellow! It’s amazing. Their bags are such great quality. I’ve owned mine for about a year now and it’s held up wonderfully.

  41. These bags look fantastic. I stylish way for my daughter to carry her camera, lens and charger and keep it safe.

  42. Epiphanie makes the most amazing camera bags they are so cute and colorful too. My daughter really want one for her bday for her new camera!

  43. Thanks for your review, I have wanted an Epihanie Camera bag for a while. Since the birth of my Granddaughter, I have taken so many pictures. But keeping up with my cameras and purse just seem so bulky and almost too much to handle. But with an Epiphanie bag, you can put everything you need all in one bag, leaving another hand free to carry gifts (yes I do spoil her). But another feature is the bright colors. Instead of just looking for my purse these bags stand out for easy retrieval, especially for someone who forgets where I put my bag. I consider that to be a great feature too.

  44. This bag is so lovely~I do not have a camera(yet)
    but going for the bag,in hopes I will get the camera soon.

  45. This is the first I’ve heard of Epiphanie bags. This is such a bold spring color, very pretty. I like this lola bag as well.

  46. I love the lola bag and how much will fit in there. I currently have a regular camera bag that is a bit of an eyesore and would LOVE a pretty bag.

  47. I love this bag. My favorites features are the water-resistant, high-quality synthetic leather and the extra padding. I also love how fashionable is this bag.

  48. I like that these bags are constructed primarily for toting around cameras. Most of my purses would have a noticeable sag if I stashed my DSLR in them.

  49. I love the bright colors of these bags this pink is just gorgeous and I also love the lola mustard bag it is beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

  50. While I’m LOVING this pink Lola bag, I also think the Turquoise Madison bag is gorgeous! That’s another item in their website that I’d loved to have!

  51. This is the first I’ve heard of the epiphanie bags & I love them! The bold color options & gorgeous style options are great too. And I’ve always wondered why in the world camera bags had to be so hideous looking! Lol I can’t wait to tell my aunt all about these new options for toting her camera & accessories! ๐Ÿ™‚

  52. These bags not only look nice to carry but they look like they really organize your camera supplies. I would recommend this bag just by looking at it on this site.
