The black Digital Holster 10 V2.0 from Think Tank contains a unique "Pop Down" feature that allows the lens hood to be kept on the camera held in shooting position. For the active shooter, this is a real time-saver. The case is made to hold a small DSLR with a standard kit lens. It is also designed to hold the camera with a tripod plate attached to it so you can readily set up for a long exposure shot without delay.

This is a form-fitting case, somewhat reminiscent of a western holster - ready to draw and shoot at a moment's notice. The case comes with a side rail attachment that accepts a small Modular, Skin, or Multimedia component. This increases the footprint and capacity of the holster as well as your shooting capabilities. The holster comes with Think Tank's "Rotate or Lock" technology for their Pro Speed Belt, Thin Skin Belt or Steroid Speed Belt that permits you to attach the holster with no effort at all. There's also a smooth fabric on the belt to minimize friction against your body.  One of the best features of the bag is that the lid opens away from your body. This enhances access to your gear as well as adding a significant security aspect to the bag since, when opened, the lid acts a shield preventing others from seeing what's inside. The removable shoulder strap and top grab handle are complemented by dual zippers that guard the access to the main compartment.

For accessories, a front stretch pocket can hold lens caps, batteries and other small items. Another touch fastened small accessory pocket is located under the top lid that is perfect for holding a filter. For ultimate protection of the delicate LCD screen on your DSLR, a soft divider fits over the top protecting it from the strap that may be stuffed inside.

There's nothing like networking so the bag comes with a neat business card holder right under the top grab handle. Finally, for maximum protection while outside, the bag comes with a built-in rain cover that is stored in an outside pocket and which can be easily deployed when the weather turns against you. The holster comes with Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

      Comments about Think Tank Photo Digital Holster 10 V2.0 (Black):

      I used this to carry my T2I w/ 24-70mm lens and use it for hiking. Makes accessing the camera much easier than digging into a backpack, and I definitely don't want to hike very long w/ my camera completely out of the case.

      For my setup I have to fully extend the bottom portion of the bag to get the lens to fit, which would be fine except that then there's too much vertical room and the camera sinks down into the bag. Due to the trapezoidal shaped top, the camera settles down and it's difficult to get the camera out. I find myself inverting the case and shaking the camera out; a recipe for trouble! If one has extra room in the bottom then perhaps its best to put something down there so the camera doesn't settle too deep.

      One other minor nit: the metal parts on the strap squeak a bit. Might try some grease to quiet it down.

      I'm upgrading to a 6D which just barely crams into this case (just adding a point of reference).

      Nice holster!

            Comments about Think Tank Photo Digital Holster 10 V2.0 (Black):

            I was looking for a way to carry my my Sony NEX-7 and lens while hiking in the backcountry areas. I used to just sling my old film cameras over my shoulder on top of the backpack straps, but with these newfangled, electronic magic boxes, i didn't want the camera to be swinging around, exposed to sweat, rocks, branches, etc. I also didn't want to store the camera in the main pack, and have to stop to take the pack off to get at the camera every time i wanted to take a photo.

            After a bit of research, checking descriptions and specs of a number of different bags, i decided on this Think Tank Photo holster. This particular model was the smallest one available that would hold the camera and a smallish lens.

            I also looked at the Cotton Carrier click-on types of attachments, but decided to try out this approach first, as the camera would be convenient, but still be unprotected with the CC or similar systems.

            Just came back from a few days in the White Mountains (New Hampshire) and have to say i'm pretty pleased with how it worked out.

            The holster attaches via two pairs of adjustable straps (available separately). These were made to connect to Think Tank's own backpack, but they were pretty easy to adapt to my Kelty Tioga 5500 (an external-frame pack) with round split rings and small carabiners.

            Two straps attach to the shoulder straps of the pack and connect to the top ring of the holster. The other straps are Y-shaped, with one clip at one end (which attaches to the bottom rear of the pack) and branches to two straps with clips, one of which attaches to an upper loop at the rear of the holster, and the other to a loop at the bottom rear of the holster.

            So, altogether, there are six points of attachment between the holster and the pack, making it very stable. One might be able to do with the Y-shaped straps, and just connect with a single strap to the bottom and the shoulder straps on top, but this system is really stable.

            It takes a bit of fussing and attention to keep things from getting tangled up when putting the pack on, but it doesn't take long to develop a little routine to keep things in order.

            When taking the pack off, i'd leave the three clips on one side of the bag connected to the backpack, and only disconnect the three on one side, so the holster stays attached to the backpack.

            By adjusting the straps on each side, it's possible to skew the position of the holster a bit to one side or the other, so it's not directly centered in the middle of the chest. Doing this made it so that the holster didn't block the sight line to my feet; important when picking out foot plants on rocky or rooty trails.

            Other manufacturers (like Kinesis) make similar-sized holsters, but this was the best fit for my NEX-7 which i use with a Jim Buchanan grip attached. The camera goes into the bag with the lens pointing down and the back of the camera pointing up. There's a nifty little extension at the bottom of the holster which accommodates a slightly longer lens, but i didn't use it that way on this trip. There's a padded flap that sits on top of the camera to separate it from the zippered flap.

            Since this is the first time is used it, i obviously can't speak to how it will hold up, but it seems sturdy and well made. There's just enough padding that one doesn't worry about impacts.

            I got another small bag from Kinesis (M330) to hold a couple of additional lenses, extra battery, and other sundries, which i dropped into the main compartment of the backpack. That looks similarly well made.

            For the way i'm intending to use this, i'm happy with how this holster works.

                    After using the case for a few weeks now, I really like it. It is well built and has just enough pockets to hold important things like filters, batteries, and cards with out making the case to big and bulky. Really like the fact that the bottom extends for use with different lenses. The rain cover is a nice feature, but I pulled it out to use the pocket for other things. The case can easily stand up to light rain for a little while before it becomes a problem. Wasn't to sure about the top opening up towards you, but after using it for a day at the market and contently taking the camera in and out, it wasn't a problem. Actually it made me feel a little more secure about just leaving the top unzipped in a crowed.

                      I shoot micro four thirds and there are virtually no camera bags for this new format so you have to be creative sometimes. This works well for the Panasonic GX-1 & 12-35 zoom and its a slim down version of the Retrospective 5 carrying the same gear.
