As digital cameras on smartphones get better and better, it is only natural that high-quality accessories should emerge onto the market. After all, makes sense that you would want to keep your mini camera kit protected and close at hand whilst on the move. Mobile photographers shouldn’t have to miss out on beautiful camera bags, and I’m not convinced there are many more stunning than the Waterfield iPhone Camera bag.

This mini camera bag is stylish and practical, and is available in two designs: ‘Black Ballistics’ or (for a little more) ‘Premium Leather’ — the sample we received. Like many of the larger ‘Waterfield’ bags, this camera bag has been constructed from premium full-grain leather, that gains character over time through scuffs and marks made on the surface. This compact piece measures up at 8" x 3" x 4" and weighs about 230g. Its surprisingly large capacity can house an iPhone 8/8+, iPhone X and other similarly sized phones, along with a battery pack, up to 4 lenses, lens attachments and a mini tripod. It also has flexible dividers that can be arranged in the layout of your choice.

It The iPhone Camera Case has a dedicated pocket for your iPhone + battery and a zip mesh pocket for smaller items. The tough exterior has been constructed to protect your gear from the elements with self-locking waterproof zips, and the interior has a soft lining and a dense foam for additional protection. The bottom of the bag has expandable bands for easily attaching a mini-tripod, and the case comes with an adjustable shoulder strap and with premium leather loops in the back for hooking onto belt. Although designed for the iPhone specifically, this camera bag is versatile: the dividers can be completely removed to hold other devices, including Go Pro cameras, small digital cameras or other phone models.

We have always been suckers for ‘Waterfield’ Designs and the iPhone Camera Bag is no exception. Stylish, tough and practical — everything we have come to expect from this company. RRP $99.00 (Black Ballistic) & $129.00 (Premium Leather)
