One week and counting and the birthday party is still in full swing! In case you missed the announcement, we’ve received so many prize donations that we’re keeping this thing going ’til the very last giveaway has been awarded – so check back all weekend long for more giveaways, pop-quiz prizes, and Facebook flash giveaways! Curious what prizes we have left? Well here’s a sampling for you!

Right now we have an amazing camera bag giveaway from *emera bags!

emera green messenger

One lucky Paperie reader will win an *emera Green Messenger camera bag, valued at $109.00!

There are times when you don’t need to carry a standard sized emera bag. A short trip, say. Or if you’re just toting a smaller camera, an iPad and a little lunch. Enter the Messenger, economic in stature yet generous in stash-ability. Impeccably designed to store and protect all your spendy stuff, it has four flexible padded compartments and a deep inside zip pocket. Wear it across the body courier-style to keep your hands free for a quick cappuccino. Chic, smart and shiny. Green with orange lining.

• Water-resistant PU coated canvas with soft leather straps and trim
• Comfy shoulder pad on the strap
• Top flap whips closed and stays closed thanks to magnetic buttons
• Flap has zipper pocket roomy enough for a small notebook
• Wide back pocket – ideal for your phone
• Interior zip pocket for passport, tickets, and fancy snacks
• Modular Velcro dividers for flexible organizing
• Durable canvas lining
• Small metal feet to help protect the base


You can see more of the Green Messenger, and just what it will hold, in my Professional Photographer Magazine column (and accompanying, expanded Web Exclusives piece) from December 2011.

Now here’s a quick peek at the latest camera bag I was lucky enough to review – The MODERN Hard Case by Drop It Modern.

Drop it Modern The Modern Hard Case camera bag

What’s shown in the bag?
• Nikon D700 body with grip
• Nikon 50mm f/1.4G
• Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
• Nikon SB-800
• Apple iPad2
• Speck iPad2 FitFolio Cover
• HTC Evo Shift 4G phone
• Abie Designs camera strap
• wallet WhiBal card
• Compact Flash Cards

Photos just do not do this camera case justice – it’s brilliantly vintage, yet perfectly modern all in one. I was extremely impressed with the sturdy construction.

I don’t want to send it back. If I suddenly quit posting to this blog and Facebook, you’ll know the case and I ran away to Jamaica and lived happily ever after!

button who lives in a pineapple…

I’m very excited to share today’s guest post / vendor giveaway – and to be honest, a little bit jealous that I’m not eligible to win one myself since it’s on my site! This is a product I reviewed for the July 2010 issue of Professional Photographer Magazine, and I got to play with it for a few days.

Let’s just say it’s definitely on my “Ohhhhh, Santa!” list already!


Now thanks to Nathiya at Mr. & Mrs. Pineapple Seed, YOU have the chance to win the quilted bag by *emera.

In 1955, Coco Chanel shook the fashion world with a quilted bag. Now with a bow to Mademoiselle C., *emera offers a perfectly constructed quilted bag for your professional photo equipment. A clever mix of femininity and practicality, it’s designed to protect your DSLR, lenses, and other critical things.

emera front view

emera side view

emera top view

From my Professional Photographer Magazine write-up: “The Quilted tote from *emera has a sophisticated look and can withstand a real photographer’s needs. It features a water-resistant body and padded straps with leather trim, and on the bottom, four metal feet. It has zippered top closure, interior zip-pocket for accessories, and outside side pockets for quick access to small items. The large interior compartment is suitable for an iPad or notebook. Velcro dividers protect your gear. The only thing lacking is a second longer shoulder strap to carry the bag cross-body if needed, but with a bag this size, fully loaded, that could quickly get cumbersome…”

emera lifestyle

“…Holding this bag makes me want to slip into a little black dress, sweep my hair into an up-do, grab black sunglasses, and head to Tiffany’s for breakfast. It’s that beautiful. And functional. Win-win.”

emera Professional Photographer Magazine
