GPB11: Izzo Shop

NOTE:  The Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (GPB11) series is a number of posts regarding merchants and sellers; and their unique and unusual creations, of which I had the utmost pleasure of discovering at Yabang Pinoy's Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (read a short introduction of my bazaar experience here.)  J

I suffer, albeit not officially diagnosed, from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.  Nothing as bad as Adrian Monk's, mind you, but just enough to be able to live in an above average organized world.  I don't mind it as much as I seem to be able to work better and move faster in this state.

My mild case of OCD also extends to my leisure activities.  Take, for instance, my most recent trip to Yabang Pinoy's Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 last Saturday.  In order to keep on budget and to maximize my time, I actually went through the GPB facebook page and located the sites of the merchants so I could list down possible items I wanted to buy.  And that was were I discovered Izzo Shop.

But it wasn't just the funky name that called my attention.  It was also because of this...

The Sam Camera Bag Insert (large)

I've mentioned in a previous post (read it here) that one of the things I hate most about DLSR bags is the lack of design choices.  Most are black and just screams out to thieves.  Not good. 

And although I was able to locate and purchase my beloved aha DSLR camera bag (read my review here), there are still times when I want to use an ordinary everyday bag instead.

Thankfully, Izzo Shop answered my prayers with their Sam Camera Bag Insert.


Retailing at only Php295, this fully padded insert provides the perfect cushion for your beloved, and expensive, DSLR cameras.  With this nifty container, you can easily convert any regular bag to fit your cameras.  So convenient and definitely a cheaper alternative than buying those expensive made-for-DSLRs only bags.

And look just how it cradles my beloved Big Blackie (yes, I sometimes name my stuff.  I'm that weird.  Hehehe!  J)  With room to spare for other accessories.


Aside from the Sam Camera Bag Insert, I'm also lusting after these (photos taken from the Izzo Shop website)...

Dominique Travel Cam Bag (Php895)

Passport case (Php130)

But alas!  Budgetary limits restrain me from going loco and buying them all in one drop.  Maybe next time.   J

  3. @Janelle: Sis, all products are from Izzo shop. =)

  4. Love that camera bag insert sis! I actually need one too, since I always end up putting Candice (my slr) inside my everyday bag. And it hurts me to see her having some scratches.. >.<

    I think I'll check Izzo Shop's site now.. Thanks for sharing this! :)

  5. @Sumi Go: Scartches are ok as long it's not on the lenses. Yikes! But the sam cam insert is really heaven-sent. I'll be going back to SG soon and I plan to just use my Hello lulu laptop bag with this insert for my cam as carry only luggage. Mahirap na kasi e. =D
