2am Collection from Acme Made

Acme Made has announced a few new camera cases that I think my wife would call chic.  Unforntunately (or, or fortunately – depending on how you see it), I’m not a big judge of fashion.  However, when my wife saw the new SLIP Pouch from Acme Made, she made cooing noises that I generally associate with trips to the mall.  I took this as a positive opinion on her behalf.

These new cases are surprisingly affordable and will be available in March 2009.

Gentlemen, I would not be caught carrying one of these camera cases; however, you may be otherwise inclined – or, perhaps, like me, you should pick one up for your better half.

Ladies, please judge accordingly in the comments.

The Bowler – Camera Bag/Purse

Acme Made has announced a new fashion-minded camera bag geared toward women.  The Bowler is a top-load DSLR camera bag, which offers a double-flip top flap and accessory pouches for memory cards and other small items.

With women making up the fastest-growing segment of digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera buyers,there is clearly demand for camera bags that not only look great but also provide superior performance.  The Bowler, new from Acme Made, does both, whether used as a camera bag or a cute handbag to tote other essentials.

You can pick one up for around $40 MSRP in November at Best Buy and online at www.acmemade.com. (Update: I’ve been advised by Acme Made that Best Buy will not be carrying the bag.)
