There's now a dedicated camera kit bag for smartphone photographers

Smartphones, eh? Coming over here, nestling in our photography patch. Well, it seems there's no stopping these camera wannabees, with news that the world's-first dedicated smartphone photography bag range has been announced and will be revealed at Photokina 2018

The folks behind it are a company called Phoneslinger. It has found a niche and has created a range of bags that will help protect the kit of any budding camera phone user. 

In all, there are three bags to choose from, as well as a Flowbelt Modular Belt System which will make you look like the fastest photo slinger in the west.

Power, Prime, Outdoor

Phoneslinger's range has been given some pretty powerful names, the sort you usually see on the side of a men's deodorant can. 

There's the Phoneslinger Power. This bag comes with a QI-Wireless Powerbank inside which is handy if your phone supports this type of wireless power. 

Then there's the Phoneslinger Prime. This one has space for up to four smartphone lenses and, of course, your smartphone. 

Finally, there's Phoneslinger Outdoor. Yep, you've guessed it, this a rugged and lightweight bag that won't be afraid to follow you into the wild and protect your phone while you are fending off the local wildlife.

All of these bags are available through Indiegogo and should arrive around February 2019 - if the bags hit their goal. If you get in there quick, then there's some decent discounts to be had. If you can't wait that long, then they will be shown off at Photokina 2018.
