Girls like bags
What is the best average camera you can consider for a present to a lady?
Well, unless she is already involved in photography, a compact camera could be a good choice, and we would also venture to suggest a compact camera with viewfinder.
But what if she has a camera already?
What would be a nice and useful present?
A camera bag!
There is a small issue, though.
Camera bags are designed for men: they are bulky, square, probably practical but definitely ugly.
Here is a list of the best high quality camera bags, in case you need.

Bags in this selection have proper foam padding and camera compartment dividers, which are usually (although not always) set in place by stitched velcro fasteners.

Such a disguise means that you can more safely travel and walk around, as well as more likely act unnoticed. Never forget that a lot of people perceive photographers as dangerous subjects, and actively try to impede, stands in the way of, or holds up their work. The more inconspicuous and ordinary you look, the better it is.
