Billingham makes high-quality, traditional-looking camera bags, and the Hadley shoulder bag is its most popular range. The new Hadley 2020 builds on this with a design that suits newer, slightly larger mirrorless full frame cameras.

Luxury leather and canvas camera bags are popular right now amongst photographers fed up of the usual black nylon. Billingham says the Hadley Pro 2020 is not just for mirrorless cameras as it can also accommodate most DSLRs too, plus three small to medium-sized lenses. Equipment is protected by a removable padded insert (the Billingham Hadley Pro 2020 can also be used as a regular general purpose shoulder bag), which has individually configurable padded dividers. Billingham bags are not cheap, but they are amongst the best messenger/shoulder bags for photographers.
