This Zeikos ZE-CA48B camera bag is roomy. There's room for an average-size camera and lenses (but not for lenses that are too long). Check the measurements (the "product dimensions") for this bag and calculate your needs accordingly for your particular camera and if you have extra lenses for your camera. I could put my Canon Powershot S2 camera in the bag and, since I don't have any extra lenses, I could also put my Flip camcorder and my other relatively smaller older Canon Powershot A60 camera in the bag. This bag would be too big for only one simple point-and-shot camera unless if you also have a lot of other accessories to put in the bag along with the camera. There are two side compartments that could be used to store extra batteries, cables, and other doodads. There is a net-mesh pocket on the outside-back of the bag and also on the outside of one of the side compartments.

The zippers are okay and seem fine to me. Another review here didn't like the zippers. I don't know what bag that other reviewer got but that reviewer seemed to be all worked up about the zippers on the bag that he got. Maybe he simply had bad luck with the bag that he bought. Anyways, the zippers on the bag that I bought were fine and did not seem to be weak. The Zeikos retail sales tag that was on the bag said the bag has a lifetime guarantee. And so the manufacturer apparently stands behind the quality of the bag including the zippers. The zippers seem fine to me.

I like this bag. This bag is well made and inexpensive. The bag is made in China - not that it matters but that helps to explain the inexpensive price for this bag which I got for a little over six bucks plus S&H (for a total cost of over eleven bucks for me). Check the different Amazon sellers who sell this bag to find the different prices that they offer this bag for.

I'm posting a video with this review to give a bit of a look at the bag that I bought here via Amazon. I don't work for Amazon or Zeikos or the third-party Amazon marketplace seller (Ace Photo Digital) who I bought the bag from. I'm just someone who wanted to get a new but inexpensive camera bag. Thanks for reading and viewing this review.

At ten dollars, this camera is great value for money. It is as good, if not better than, fifty dollar camera bag from Canon. I use it for video camera Canon HV-20. The Zeikos bag has 2 adjustable compartments, and I use one for charger and one for the camera. Most other bags, including Canon, have just one big compartment where it is hard to squeeze in camera and the charger. Two zippered side pockets can be used for mini DV tapes, remote and memory cards but are too small for extra battery. The back pocket can also be used for thin objects like memory card, manual etc. Construction appears sturdy but padding could be thicker. Shoulder strap and handle work well. Overall, excellent value for money.

I purchased it for a Canon Rebel 3Ti and it fits nice and cozy with its standard 18-55 lens placed on the body and an extra lens (I have my Canon EF-S 55-250mm). Side zip pockets have room for some UV filters, a spare battery, and spare SD cards. It's a quality bag for the price and it does the job. It looks small, but if you make good use of space, it can fit a lot of stuff.

Like I said great starter bag for a DSLR Camera, if you need to carry more than what I specified then I wouldn't recommend it.

It fits my canon t3i w/ stock 18-55mm lens plus a 55-250mm IS telephoto lens perfectly. Padding is pretty good. Good materials. lightweight, which is what many amateur photographers want who don't own a lot of lens.

Just a few days ago I was shopping around on this site for camera bags. I considered a number of bags, but kept coming back to this one. It was pretty attractive to me, and promised a combination of desirable features that none of the other bags on the Amazon really offer: a name brand, a good price, manufacturer's warranty, Prime eligible. (That last was particularly attractive to me because I needed the bag on pretty short notice, for a photography class in Hoboken this Saturday. Now that I have to return it, and don't even have the option of exchanging it--not that I'd want to--I guess I'll have to do without.)

I read the reviews, as you're doing now--not all of them, of course, as there are upwards of 250. I saw that the vast majority were five-star reviews, but there were too many one- and two-star reviews to ignore altogether. I read the negative reviews and saw people complain about cheap zippers over and over.

The positive reviews, however, often said things like "I don't know what those people are talking about, the zipper is fine." I decided to trust the majority.

My reward? The box arrived, I eagerly opened it, saw a brand-new bag in a plastic slipcover. I pulled the cover off, went to open the bag--and the very first thing I noticed was that the zipper was already off the track! Not just off the track, but badly mangled. On a brand-new bag that I hadn't even touched!!

Trying to decide whether to exchange it for another (though it turns out I never had that option anyway, since I'm returning via Amazon and they only offer refunds on third-party items) I briefly experimented with it, seeing if it would serve my purposes otherwise. It's very small, smaller than described. It holds my Nikon D3100 and 18/55 mm lens, but barely, so it certainly won't do for anyone using just about any equipment at all beyond the absolute minimum. I was given to understand that the mesh netting along the back would accomodate the camera's very slim and small user's guide, but guess what? It didn't fit.

And on top of all that, as I was repackaging it for return shipping I noticed that it doesn't even have the promised shoulder strap.

Really, what were they thinking? How did they screw up this badly? This has got to be the most unprofessional third party seller on Amazon. Did anyone give it the most cursory examination before they shipped it? Do they even know what quality control is? Pathetic, completely and utterly pathetic.

I purchased this camera bag for my Canon Powershot SX20IS Digital Camera with 20x zoom. It fits nicely in the bag, along with the lens hood, battery charger and extra batteries in a separate zippered compartment. Very compact, yet plenty of room for the camera and extras. Two small side compartments that have no way to secure so are basically worthless for anything of value. Has a belt loop, handle, and shoulder strap. The camera case might be a little too bulky to loop through your belt. I have returned 2 other bags that did not fit my camera well before I found this little gem.

After seeing the prices of other camera bags, I chose this one. I'm glad I did, it's a steal. I have not yet had any issues with this bag. If your camera has a medium size lens attached (like an 80-200mm) that's all you'll be able to fit in it, and it'll be tight. However, with a smaller lens, I am able to fit my camera (Rebel T2i) with attached lens (kit 18-55mm), and the battery charger and some cords in it. Be aware of that. It does have side pockets for storing memory cards, lens filters, etc, which is nice. I have recently outgrown the bag, and am probably going to purchase a second one of these for just lenses and other items. The shoulder strap is very basic and in my opinion doesn't extend long enough, but that may just be preference. Also the strap latches are plastic, not extremely durable, but not really cheap either. The velcro divider does it's job fine. It says it's water resistant, and I agree with that; I can see it protecting against some water, but probably not prolonged exposure like rain. The inner lining isn't fabric, it's nylon, like a wind breaker.
Overall I like the bag, and it's definitely a bargain. I wish it were a little larger, but if you need a larger bag, buy a different model (or 2 of these).

I bought this last spring for my Canon SX20IS and have found it to be a great little bag. Granted, I don't carry around big extra lenses, but it fits the camera and other miscellaneous stuff just fine. I don't want to carry a camera bag and a purse and this bag has plenty of room to stow the camera and all the stuff I usually pack in my purse - wallet, tissues, glasses, keys, pencils, pens, chapstick, cell phone and more. For the price, it can't be beat.

This is a very well made bag, but watch your camera size lol this medium bag only holds one with equipment, not two!How ever, I am inclined to simply buy a second bag as this one is awesome! Great compartments with easy accessibility, and believe it or not ,the small size only makes it easy and comfortable to carry and doesn't get in the way! Two thumbs up on this bag! :D
