Use Amazon to read several reviews on camera bags. Then buy your Canon bag at your favorite local or online retailer.
You can use the search function with the term: Canon Digital Camera Bags or a slight variation and you'll see how many choices you get.
Have a little fun with your search. Watch what happens when you refined your search by checking a few of your search preferences along the left column after you do your initial search on Amazon.
Consider whether you want a shoulder bag, a backpack style of camera bag, or maybe a sling camera bag. Now try adding a size requirement, like large, medium or small camera bag.
It's truly remarkable on how much variety there is!
When comparing camera bags, read the descriptions carefully. Some descriptions give inside dimensions and some give outside dimensions. The side pockets may be included in the outside dimensions figures as well.
Make sure the displayed photograph of the bag is THE EXACT ONE being offered. There is nothing more disappointing than finding out the photo you are looking at is just a similar one to the one you are considering.
Use an online retailer that has a good return policy. You don't have much at risk if you can return your camera bag without penalty if it is not exactly what you really want. The biggest issue for camera bags in general is their size. Sometimes they might be a little too big and bulky to carry but usually the biggest complaint is that they are too small.
Consider whether you want the main compartment to have a zipper and a flap. Although it takes a few more seconds to access the main compartment with a zipper, it's more secure than having just a flap with snap buckles. I would never buy a gadget bag without a zipper for the added protection.
Click through to any specific bag and look at all of the customer's photos.
The amount of padding in a bag is also a personal choice. Padding adds bulk, but it also adds protection.
I have a few small bags with very little padding. These work well when I am traveling light with my Canon G11 or other small camera and am in a situation where it won't be jostled about.
I also have quite a variety of lens pouches,Velcro dividers and camera wraps which are thin and give an extra layer of protection from within my camera bag.
I also would never buy a bag without side pouches. I have a lot of accessories. The side pouches can double as a place to store other items, a snack or a small meal.Read the customer reviews here: Camera Bag Reviews on Amazon
