Epiphanie Fashionable Camera Bag Review

Powered by Mom Blog shares herย Epiphanie Fashionable Camera Bag Review

Finally I have found a fashionable camera bag that can also double as my handbag when I need it! No more ugly black padded bags that have not style and hang around your neck. Epiphanie bags has an amazing variety of bags, colors and styles to suit every gal, there is a fashionable camera bag for you to be found at Epiphanie!

Here’s the bag that I selected from Epiphanie it’s the Sydney bag and I’m using it cross body style!

fashionable camera bag

I selected the Sydney bag for a few different reasons. I wanted a bag that could be a cross body or a backpack style bag, especially for when I was carrying more of my camera gear which can be heavy. I like the backpack styles for the heavier loads so that is a must option for me, I wanted a bag in grey or silver and I didn’t want bag that was a mini suitcase, in other words nothing too huge.


The Sydney bag met all of my criteria so it was a fairly easy choice. I say fairly easy as I also had my eye on the silver metallic Charlotte bag which is oh so fashionable and a bit smaller than the Sydney but it doesn’t convert to a backpack. The other bag I had my eye on was the Madison, it could be a cross body or a backpack but it was bigger than I wanted. I would still consider the Madison in the future for those times I want a bigger bag and am still tempted by the cuteness of the Charlotte.

The Madison is three bags in one! So it can be worn over your shoulder, cross-body, or easily transform into a backpack without removing any straps. I like that I don’t have to remove the straps when I change the style. I admit it took me a bit to figure out how to change it from backpack to cross body without removing the straps, I’d like to see a quick video on how to do it on the Epiphanie site. Some of us need the visual and are a bit slower to figure things out lol.

I definitely don’t need a bigger bag right now as the Sydney holds an amazing amount check it out! On this day I had my 15 inch laptop, water bottle, wallet and some goodies in the main compartment and there was still room.

In the front compartments were my phone, cosmetics and more and in the zipper in the bag of the bag were my keys! All with plenty of room to add more!


This picture has our huge Canon EOS D30 with long lens, wallet and a tablet in the main compartment. Again still plenty of room left in the main compartment.

This picture has my smaller Cancon camera and my tablet in the main compartment, my wallet is in there somewhere too. Everything else had the other stuff mentioned above, phone, keys etc.. There’s so much room in this bag love it!

The Sydney is their slimmest bag which is another reason I selected it as I didn’t want too bulky. Here’s how it looks from the side and backpack mode ๐Ÿ™‚

So to sum it up I LOVE the Sydney bag but I have a feeling I would like almost any bag I got from Epiphanie, they have thought of everything!

  8. Anne from Pintesting says:

    These bags combine the best of fashion and function! I love how organized they are, and since I’m working on getting a new camera it’s just what I need. (That and the new camera – and maybe a bit more money and chocolate and coffee and wine, but I digress.)

    I had never heard of these bags before I love them

  11. Kathy Lane says:

    I like that this bag could be a cross body or a backpack.I also love that it is so roomy,and that it zips to close.

  12. I love how much room it has! Although I have no money right now, I’d love to have this for my gear! I don’t have a lot of attachments yet (hence why I have no camera bag), but I know I’ll need a bag like this in the future!

  13. Kathy P. says:

    I love that they have so many sizes and styles….

  14. DG Middendorf says:

  21. Raven Johnson says:

    Epiphanie bags are so stylish yet functional for a camera bag!

  22. Beanybopp says:

    Wow I dont think anyone would need a bigger bag than that! lol I like how the panels inside velcro so you can move them around or even just take them out. I have a camera bag now in which I cant do that and I have things that just plainly wont fit or are too little so they bounce around it in which with camera parts being so expensive that isnt good. I think that the madison is cute and I love how its basically a 3 in 1 bag ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Sandy Cain says:

    I love how versatile these bags are! Over the shoulder, cross-body, back-pack – you can wear them so many ways!

  24. Angela P. says:

    Wow! I love that you can fit so much inside.. use it 3 different ways.. without changing the straps! That is pretty impressive. Now I’m adding the Madison to the list of epiphanie bags I’m coveting.

    • Hi Angela, actually it’s the Sydney bag the one I reviewed that you can use it 3 different ways without changing the strap. The Madison converts too but the straps work differently on that one and the Madison is bigger than the Sydney

Your photos are practical and applicable, I’m able to see the proportions better and with the items inside the bag, I’m able to sort of “picture” my items in the bag.
