    For the serious photographer, a smartphone can never do. That’s why you need something like Berlin’s handmade Hanska Bag (made for the Polaroid 600-type camera) that will protect those tele-zoom lenses and other accessories that help freeze time. Take your pick from trusted brands like Lowepro and Manfrotto, whose latest are cabin camera cases complete with wheels. Or for something more exclusive, bank on leather, from Wotancraft or Copper River Bags.
