The SpiderPro Single Camera System from Spider Camera Holster is a unique way to have your professional DSLR at the ready. This is a serious hip-mounted holster that provides a way to wear your DSLR on your waist as a cowboy would his six-shooter. Instead of having two cameras dangling from your shoulders, The Spider gives you the freedom to hold one camera in your hands while the other rests on your hip.

The SpiderPro Single Camera System includes a belt, holster, camera plate and pin. Using this system, you can also remain hands-free while your DSLR hangs at your side waiting for that grab shot. The system is comprised of four pieces. The SpiderPro belt, which holds the entire rig, the holster that holds the camera, the plate that attaches to the tripod socket of your camera and the pin that is attached to the plate. The entire assembly slides into the holster which secures to the belt using Spider's two-position lock system. Your camera stays at your side while retaining complete freedom of movement.

When the camera is slid into the holster, it locks into place. When placed into the upper portion of the holster, the lock releases and your camera is ready to be drawn - just as if you were wearing a holstered pistol. The holster is attached using a large quick-release buckle. Made from stainless steel and aluminum, this system is targeted at the "run-and-gun" shooter who is constantly on the prowl for that "keeper".

Camera locks into place each time it is returned to the holster - In lower position the lock secures your camera each time it's placed in the holster. In upper position - the lock disengages for quick and easy access to your camera.
Gives your camera freedom of movement at your hip
Extremely durable and designed specifically for active shooting situations

    I use a 70-200 lens for a lot of my work. No secret it's long and heavy. The lens makes the camera an awkward load. Seems I'm always trying to keep it under control and out of the way. The equipment becomes a literal pain in the neck (or shoulder) on long jobs or walking from location to location.

    Seeing the Spider holster in ads, I thought it looked a little odd the way a camera hung from the holster, but trust me the designers got it right. The holster is so well designed that I can lock a camera in the holster, and comfortably hike a mile to our local park with the camera strapped to my waist. It stays put and doesn't cause undue discomfort.

    I prefer to let it ride off my left hip and sling a little lower on the right, just about mid cheek on the right. This puts the camera about quick draw for my right hand, and is a little more comfortable overall. Some might like it a bit higher around the waist. I found the waist strap caused some discomfort if it was strapped directly over my pants belt. So I hike my pants up and strap the holster just below it. Let the camera hang upside down with the lens turned in across your butt. I know it looks strange, but this keeps the equipment out of the way, and is the most comfortable. The designers knew what they were doing.

    On location the camera slips in and out of the holster smoothly and easily. I was surprised how quickly I got accustomed to the process. You get two hand use to set up shots or pose subjects (carry on a conversation if you're a hand talker). Then you just reach down and pull the camera up to sight the image.

    The camera locking mechanism operates with a thumb flick. On location I feel comfortable leaving it off. The holster is that secure. If I will be not shooting for a while, or if I'm changing locations I engage the lock. It wouldn't surprise me if you could hang upside down with the holster and not lose the camera.

    I still have a shoulder strap attached to my camera which is a bit of an annoyance. The strap hangs and bounces around, and can get caught on stuff it you aren't careful. I will be switching to a hand or wrist strap now that I trust the Spider.

    The Spider holster is secure. The locking systems for the camera in the holster, and the belt to the waist are solid. Having experienced the latching systems, I'm over worrying about losing the belt or camera to a latch failure. Also, I believe, they make it very difficult for a snatch and run robbery.

    I'm 6'4' and in reasonable shape. I don't know how this might work for a slighter frame.

    This is a wonderful invention. It is crazy-well designed. The dread of lugging, losing, or controlling that big beautiful wonderful load of a lens is gone.

    I have photographer friends who love the spider holster and encouraged me to get one. I like that it gives me the ability to shoot with multiple cameras and not lug around a camera bag but the belt is just too big for me! I'm an average sized female and I have the belt on the tightest setting and it still hangs off my waist by a couple of inches. I dont feel like it's very secure this way because it's loose and swings around.

    I really like the product but just wish they made a female size for it.

      Purchased for use on an active vacay to Kauai. Trekked through the tropical forest, ATV'd across a private ranch, flew over the island by helicopter...the holster performed flawlessly, was extremely comfortable, was easy to assemble, and kept the equipment safe. Saved my neck from the pain caused by dangling my Canon 5DMIII on the neck strap. I should have purchased this when I first bought the camera from B &H over a year ago. A bit pricey compared to other holsters but worth EVERY dollar, in my opinion.

      I do a lot of hiking type photography. It will be nice to be able to use both hands for stability while the camera hangs at my side. I have not actually gone hiking yet with it, but I've worn it around the house and it seems to be exactly what I was looking for.

      Comments about Spider Camera Holster SpiderPro Single Camera System:

      This holster is great for speed! As a wedding photographer, i'm always putting my camera down to move and go, and when i need two hands to hold something i put my camera to the side. My straps were always leaving my clothes wrinkled and getting in the way. This is perfect for events; the mechanism is very strong, durable, and trust worth (so far). I actually take off the mechanism and attach it to my regular belt for small shoots like and engagement; then use the belt for bigger events. I do wish that the locking mechanism could be unlocked with one hand vs using your other hand to unlock or leaving the lock completely unlocked. Maybe the future they'll come out with something.

        Just used the single spider belt for a wedding event. I bought an additional plate with pin for my backup camera, so i can switch between two cameras, one in my hand, one on my hip; as soon i can i will definelty buy the 1-2 upgrade for two cameras. The product came ready assembled, i only needed to mount the plate(s) on the camer(s)! Very durable materials, heavy duty product! Well designed. i just love it! Great customer service i had a question and got instant reply and assistance from the spider belt team!

          I'm not sure how I lived without this. I take photos in studio and out on location. Before getting the SpiderPro I would have no choice but to put my camera on the ground. Now it's hooked to my side and I couldn't be happier.

            I am so happy I bought this camera holder. I was tired of having my camera hang from around my neck, flopping around when I bent over. I also used the Black Rapid system which is great, but even that did a bit of flopping. The SpiderPro system is SOLID and secure, the camera doesn't budge a bit. Very easy to drop your camera into its spot quickly without looking. Removing camera does require a second hand to flip open the lock switch but I got used to it fast and I don't have to look down while removing my camera. I love it!

              Want your shoulders no longer to hurt? Buy this product! The spider camera holster is designed to have the weight of the camera on your waist where you won't have to worry about back and shoulder pains anymore! Plus you get to look like a cowboy with your cameras on your hip! Very cool!

                Comments about Spider Camera Holster SpiderPro Single Camera System:

                I bought this to carry my Nikon D810 with the 24-70 f/2.8 lens while site seeing on an extended vacation. I have lower back problems and the weight of the camera becomes a problem at some point. Since the Holster would transfer the weight from my back to my hips, it seemed like a good solution. To me this would be a better solution than giving up the quality of the D810 and instead getting a good 4/3 camera, also much cheaper. Once adjusted properly, the holster did take the weight off my back. What I had not anticipated was that it also, with the weight on one side, tended to torque my hips and I think that after a little time, that would get uncomfortable. I thought about carrying the 14-24 lens on the other side to balance out a little but there were other issues. If I walked fast, the camera would bounce with each step. Worse than that the camera occupied the space that my hand would normally be hanging in as I walked. I also was concerned that with the things I would be doing touring, getting on and off transportation, moving in crowds, going through doors, etc. that it would be easy to bang the camera into something. The holster simply wasn't going to work for me so I returned it to B&H.So, why did I give it 4 stars? First its made very well. The camera easily attaches and releases to and from the belt. Its also easy to lock and unlock it in position. I think the holster would be ideal for those situations where you needed your hands free to adjust lights or your subjects. For that purpose its much more comfortable and secure than a neck strap. Its a great product for the right application.I returned the holster and I'm now in the process of picking out a 4/3 camera. It pains me not to take the D810 everywhere, but not as much as my back does at the end a a long day carrying it.

                        I ordered product based on picture, and a few reviews that were positive. But, I found this holster belt of little use: 1) very difficult to change waist diameter of belt due to thick, unwieldy strap and velcro impinging, 2) when waist diameter was finally adjusted correctly, then the weight of DSLR tends to pull belt down (like losing your pants), and 3) nearly impossible to release closure latch to remove belt from waist due to having to squeeze prongs and press separate release plate simultaneously. This item is useless to me and I will instead resume using my cross-chest shoulder strap.

                          I'm a relative newbie at photography. I have a D7100 with 18-200mm lens. Took it on several hikes a dn cross-country ski trips, hanging around my neck. It was a definite strain on the neck and shoulder. This holster appears to fix all these issues. It's easy to set up and camera access is very fast. I like it so far.

                            This thing is heavy duty. I use it to walk around with my Nikon D610, small attached flash and usually a mid-sized lens (which, for full frame, means pretty big glass). This is a heavy combo, one you'd feel on a shoulder strap after a while, nevermind a belt, but this product performs perfectly. I've been wearing it around the house as I go about my chores to get used to it.Exactly as expected.

                              I love this product. It takes all the weight off my neck. I usually shoot with the 70-200 so that was a lot of weight hanging off my poor neck. Plus, for some events I have two cameras going so now I just have the smaller lens set-up on neck and the 70-200 on the holster. (You can buy a two-camera holster). It works perfectly and is very secure. Also, the camera isn't swinging around or knocking into things if I bend down. It's out of the way. I will say at first I thought it was broken because sometimes the latch locked in when I replaced the camera in the holster and sometimes it did not. So I thought it was faulty because it did not catch and lock each time. But I called Spider and was told it's designed that way so that you have the option of having the lock catch and hold or stay open for faster camera withdrawal. So you do have to get the hang of pulling the latch just so -- not fully -- so that it does not stay open (unless you want it to). One bit of caution if you are very skinny. The belt was just small enough for me. I am a small woman, slender, but there are plenty of thinner women and this would probably be too big for them since I made it as tight as I could. They need to make a smaller one.

                              I have had neck issues for the last 10 years and my DSLR aggravated my neck every time I went out to take pictures. I looked for alternatives to a neck strap and came across the SpiderPro holster; it had great reviews so I purchased one. I used it for the first time last weekend and it worked great. I could walk for miles without neck issues and the camera was secure on my hip. The lock mechanism prevents the camera from accidentally falling out of the holster when you are climbing stairs or doing other aggressive motions. The mechanism can be locked open for 1 handed shooting when needed. It took me a few minutes to understand the proper placement of the camera when holstered, look carefully at the images in the instructions, but when I figured that out everything worked great. I would highly recommend this product.

                                I hate straps so this is perfect. Holds the camera like a champ and allows me to do other stuff without worrying about my camera falling or getting in the way.

                                This holster is a great way to get the camera off of your neck. When I shoot events I use this holster to hold one camera while my other camera is in my hands. Comfortable and bombproof, I'm sure that this rig will last a lifetime. The baseplate also works with my CarrySpeed strap, which is a plus.

                                  Hand grips. Shoulder straps. Neck straps. I have tried them all. Each of them have their benefits and uses. But I found the SpiderPro Camera Holster to be the best option when out walking or hiking. It's very sturdy and easy to use. When the camera is in position and the holster belt just above my pants belt it feels comfortable and safe.

                                  Keep an eye on any battery grips you may have: with some of my larger lenses there is extra force on the screw holding the battery grip to the camera body when in the holster. Not the SpiderPro holsters fault in any way.

                                  I highly recommend this holster.
