Chic Geek Giveaway: ONA Bags

giveaway

It's safe to say you all LOVED last week's Chic Geek Giveaway! Your comments and suggestions were dead on. Many of you wanted sturdier bags, colorful bags, and bags that offered more compartments. I couldn't agree more; there is nothing worse than a bag that falls apart right after purchase or a boring bland bag.

This week, I have another gorgeous bag from ONA, which means “to feel,” “to believe,” and “to experience with the eyes” in Swahili. Created by Tracey Foster, the ONA bag is a stylish take on the traditional camera bag. Instead of lugging around the fashionably-challenged camera bag, you can carry your camera in a bag that works for brunch, date night or shopping with your friends.

Foster states, “Each ONA camera bag is handcrafted from premium materials and designed to blend the functionality of traditional camera bags with contemporary styling. ONA camera bags are produced in limited quantities to ensure that an unparalleled level of attention is paid to every detail.”

I think what makes an ONA bag so special is the quality. From the full-grain leather exterior to carefully planned compartments, it is exactly what a budding street style photographer would love to have while shooting and not be embarrassed. A chic alternative to the basic messenger bag, ONA's Venice is one beautiful bag, featuring long straps (easy for you carry cross-body or over the shoulder), and padded compartments for your DSLR or tablet. My other favorite parts of the bag? The gold buckles and zippers. What girl doesn't love a little splash of gold?!

We are giving away one Venice bag to a lucky reader this week and here's how you can enter to win:

1. Tell me how you currently carry your DSLR now in the comments section. Small purse? Camera bag?
2. Like IFB on Facebook 
3. Be sure to leave a valid email address.

 

The Promotion is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are at least thirteen (13) years of age at the time of entry. A complete list of rules and regulations are located here.

    BEST GIVEAWAY EVER. I need a new camera bag. I carry my DSLR around in a small camera bag that barely fits the whole camera, let alone bigger lenses when I can finally afford them!

    This stylish camera bag would come in handy when I go to fashion blogger conferences, like #IFBCon next week 😉

    I carry it in a lunch bag!!!!!

    No seriously, a Hello Kitty third-grader insulated, pillowed lunch bag LOL.

    I refuse to use any ugly bag that the local camera shoppe carries, so I had to be creative, but it is strapless – and a tad chunky for this soon-to-be twenty five year old …

    would LOVE this ONA bag, it would just love my new camera lens too =)

    When I purchased my DSLR it was part of a bundle, which included a small black camera bag. The camera fits snugly in the bag with few accessories, but I can’t even fit an extra lens which is less than ideal. I’ve looked into several bags but the ones I really like are sold out 🙁

    I am still currently saving up for my very own SLR camera. But for now, I carry around my mom’s in a large purse, that is actually meant for laptops. As you can imagine, there are no compartments and it is not efficient at all for the camera, lenses, etc. This ONA bag would be perfect! And it’s gorgeous enough to use as a purse when not taking photos!! Great giveaway!!

    Sometimes Bill Cunningham-style in a medium sized Nikon camera bag that goes across my shoulder and holds a couple lenses/flashes. (I have a Canon, haha). I don’t mind looking a bit touristy since bill does it!

    Sometimes just in my purse (Alexander Wang, Longchamp) or without a bag.

    I have a camera/laptop bag – Lowepro – that’s more for long days or traveling because it’s bigger.

    Sometimes in a soft shell case!

    My camera is rather small, so it fits in any of my purses. Almost. But now that there is more and more traffic on my blog, I feel like I NEED to show better pictures to my readers. So purchasing a nice, voluminous camera is on the agenda. I wonder what I will carry it in… But of course! In an ONA Venice bag!!! 😉

    I currently carry my camera in a small, somewhat ugly bag made from some tech fabric. It’s a really small bag, there’s no room for another lens or anything besides a spare battery. I also carry a small purse because I have to have something to keep my glasses and other necessaries (like lipstick) in, and carrying the two around together is annoying because they clash and bang into each other.

    I carry my Panasonic GH-1 in a Lowerpro Slingshot 200 AW. It’s comfortable, easy to access, but man oh man is it ugly. I’d love a gorgeous ONA bag that would inspire me to take my baby out more instead of hating how the strap sits in my cleavage and is just uggo.

    If i’m traveling for a longer period or if my camera risks getting damaged i carry it in a old camera bag that used to be my dads, so you bet it’s ugly. And that only fits my DSLR. If i’m going take my analog camera too, i either have to press it in, which is scary, or take of the lens and put it elsewhere.
    If I’m just going out and want to bring my DSLR i use a cotton bag, which is the only bag i’ve got that fits both my camera and other stuff. I don’t like using that because i’m always afraid my camera is going to break.

    The ONA bag would be great because it would fit both cameras and more, and yet look stylish

    This bag is simply amazing! I’ve been on the hunt for a bag that not only fits my DSLR or my FTb QL 35mm SLR Camera but is also stylish. Right now I have a bag that’s too bulky and nearly not as functional as this one, so I’ve gotten into the habit of just carrying it loose. I’m a photographer and designer so I’m always bringing my camera around with me. This is a great find.

    I currently carry my 5D in an ONA insert, but it’s difficult to find the right bag to put it in.

    I also recently got a 70-200 lens that simply won’t fit in the insert, resulting in me carrying a purse and a Lowepro camera bag anyway.

    I tend to just stick the camera in my normal handbag and hope for the best. I’ve been lucky so far, although the lens cap keeps coming off there’s no scratches! I don’t have a camera bag to use so it’s a case of be brave or leave the camera at home!

    Yeah, that is pretty much exactly what I look for in a camera bag!!! Its really perfect

    It´s save for the equipment but all the rest is ruined…i am a small person – so at the moment i put on the big-camera-backpack i feel like a turtle…with red lipstick 🙂

    How do I carry my dslr? Depends on the situation. Sometimes, but rarely, I just carry it with me au naturel, ie: on its strap over my shoulder, or on the floor of my car where it can’t fall, or slide around too much – that’s for quick trips that I know aren’t going to develop into anything else. For going neighbourhood walking where there’s a chance that I’ll slip or trip (yes, I’m a klutz), but I only need the body and one lens, a shoulder bag with limited space and no pockets. Otherwise, I have to take my heavy backpack style carry-all. A shoulder bag that doesn’t look like a camera bag, that can accommodate the camera/lens plus a spare lens or two, would be an awesome addition to my gear!

    I carry my DSLR in a chrome bag (a gift). it’s a tight fit for my lenses, flash and camera, and really impractical if i want to get my camera out quickly (as it’s an industrial style backpack. its fine and functional in that it keeps my camera safe and dry, which is important because i mostly shoot gigs and live in london. but it’s not very pleasing to the eye, and something i only use on a gig shoot. if i’m going out with my friends or away on holiday, my dslr gets thrown into my small topshop purse. poor guy.

The Thinktanks are great for protecting it on the job, but not exactly a fashion statement, the yellow bag is a fashion statement but doesn’t protect – ONA would be the PERFECT combination!

There is duct tape on the handles & bottom of the bag to hold it together. So what if it’s pleather, I like the old “leather” look of it! I have cut up t-shirts shoved inside for padding. Winning an ONA bag would be a major upgrade. They sure are beautiful & practical (happy about the interior padding & that they are real leather) & I would use it forever!

    I used to carry my cameras in a Lowepro bag until a homeless man told me, “you’re gonna get that camera stolen.” Now I just carry them in my Chrome bag, but all that jostling around can’t be good.

    I have been coveting ONA bags for so long! Currently I keep my camera in my purse, I use one of the pockets for my extra lens and I usually wrap the camera in a scarf.

    I am a bad camera mommy and have been wrapping my dslr up in a scarf or two and stowing it in my purse when we go our together. I would adore to own an ONA camera bag! (and be a more responsible camera owner!)

    I carry my camera in my hand or around my neck mostly. I have a camera bag but it is bulky and actually hurts my back when I carry it. I would love an ONA bag and think being able to sling it across my body would help with my back issues.

    Thank you so much for the chance to win. I’ve been saving for an Ona bag. My camera travels in a boring but mostly functional black camera bag or family diaper bag. I think using the bag would feel like a vacation – complete departure from the everyday. Cheers

    I carry my dslr and lenses in a boxy, bulky camera bag, but it is so heavy and cumbersome, especially when I’m also carrying a purse and a heavy-duty tripod. I really need something with a more sleek, functional design.

    yep, I just liked you on fb. and I carry my camera in an awfully hideous “I’ve got a camera and I’m going to take your picture” bag from best buy that came with the camera. oh how I would love an ONA bag.

    I currently house my camera in a well loved-and tragically falling apart-bulky camera box I picked up at a thrift store a few years ago. It would be great to have the Venice to load my gear in; it will protect my camera without screaming “hey Imma take your photo!”, while all wrapped up in a classy design. Thanks a million.

    Hi !
    for the moment I have a jill-e camera bag but it’s getting old so I’d love this ONA bag :))

    I’m almost ashamed to say it, but I just sling my camera around my body using the strap. It’s no way to live. It’s uncivilized. Savage, I tell you.

    Getting an ONA bag would be the equivalent of taking my camera out of homelessness and putting her (yes, my camera is a she) into a Trump penthouse (if a Trump penthouse was kind of rustic and ten times more tasteful and awesome).

    Oh man. I’ve rambled. You get the point, yeah?

    I currently cary my camera in a bag that came with the purchase. It’s way to small and has absolutely no style. Been dreaming of owning an ONA for quite some time now.

    Sometimes a hip pack, sometimes in a timbuk2 messenger bag, sometimes in a vintage coach purse… Depends on the shoot or set up. An ONA bag would be awesome AND CLASSY! Sometimes my stuff screams camera or gear… When classy and chic and deseret would be nice. ~crossing fingers~ Yayy!

    When it’s not cold I just carry it crossed-over, when it’s cold I just carry a large purse. I don’t like camera bags, but this one is stylish, too.

    Another giveaway! YES! After saving up for a couple of months, I bought myself a canon rebel two years ago. The only thing I could afford to put it in was a dinky 15 dollar case from target! I’d be embarrassed to bring my camera around, so lost out on some photo ops. my camera barely fits in it, but we gotta make do with what we have. I’d love a chance to win the ONA Venice bag!

    Right now, my Nikon is tossed in the bottom of my bag, wrapped in scarf, meaning there’s not much separating it from all the other junk in there. I’ve been lusting after an ONA bag for years!

    I carry it in a boring black camera bag – yuk. Been trying to decide on a “stylish” bag and pretty much leaning towards ONA because if I’m going to drop some money I think leather is the way to go.

    I currently have a velocity slingback bag. It has been a wonderful bag for my Canon 5oD. I need to upgrade to a better more durable bag due to the addition of a new lens, hood and flash. I have heard wonderful things about the ONA bag. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Love your bags. Right now I carry my DSLR in the small camera bag that came with the camera when I bought it. It’ barely fits the camera with my 18-200 mm lens and my Nikkor 80-200 1:2.8 lens in the side pocket. I carry this with me everywhere because you never know when you’re going to see something you have to shoot.

    Currently using a typical camera bag, which is annoyingly hard, boxy and UGLY. I love my DSLR—it deserves something as sexy and fashionable as the ONA Venice Camel bag to complement it. Sure hope I’m lucky enough to win this 🙂

    I carry my camera in a vintage satchel I got recently. More of a girlie, ladylike style than the schoolbag types you see a lot of right now. It fits perfectly 😉

    I have a competitor’s camera bag/purse and it’s fine, but I really covet an ONA Bag for it’s gorgeous leather exterior (and not the faux leather like the one I have now).

    I have a small insert that I can put in a purse that will hold one lens. So I carry my camera around my neck and carry a purse with my small insert. I love ONA bags and I have been trying to win one for a long time because I am a fashion fanatic who would love a fashionable camera bag! It would be so nice to be able to carry a cute bag that can hold more than one lens, plus my camera!

    The camera I have right now, although big, isn’t as fancy and expensive as a DSLR, so I usually just cram the case and camera into a big enough tote, though that usually hurts my shoulder because it’s hard to find bags big enough to hold it AND be cross-body. This is SUCH a cute bag!!!
    Oh, & I liked you on facebook :).

    I carry my DSLR in my bag, but it gets really annoying because I also carry books, water, my phone and other stuff in my bag so it get’s really heavy and I keep worrying that my camera will get damaged. I haven’t been able to find a stylish bag to keep my DSLR in, this one would definitely do the trick!

    I carry my canon rebel in either the camera bag that it came with, or a backpack. The camera bag doesn’t actually fit my two lenses properly, but the backpack is too big and requires me to wrap my camera in sweaters to protect it! I’d loooove a real camera bag that fits all of my equipment and looks great too 🙂
