As women are widely thought to make up a large percentage of dSLR camera buyers, there's a demand for camera bags that not only perform well, but also look great. The latest offering from Acme Made, "The Bowler," is a bowling bag-style camera tote for a dSLR that can also be used as a handbag.

The Bowler features quilted satin lining, allowing cameras to easily slide in and out, and providing protection for the goods inside. There's an adjustable padded divider, which can be moved to suit your camera and accessories. Hidden side accessory pockets hold things like memory cards.

The retro-looking bag--which resembles this bag for the Nintendo Wii--is made from high-quality polyurethane and tricot, with a dual-zipper flap. A red bag will be available in November, with navy and blacks bags on the way in December. All colors feature white handles and trim, and the handles are dual-tapered, designed to lay comfortably in your hand. The suggested price is $39.99.
