In a sea of not-so-cute bags, I did find one that fits my needs (small, sleek and black) and well, comfortable too! After reading a few reviews, all the photogs love this DSLR bag by Incase. It has a top and side access, water resistant, adjustable padded interior and adjustable shoulder strap. It's exactly what i want in a camera bag!
