The black Digital Holster 30 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 regular-sized DSLR such as a Canon 5D Mark II, 7D or Nikon D700 with a 70-200mm f/2.8 with its hood either reversed or in shooting position.

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 is 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.

          I bought this to use with my Canon 60D and my new Tamron 150-600 lens. It works very well and gives good protection for the camera and lens. I am able to store the camera and the lens with the hood in the reverse position. It is a nice snug fit and works only because of the "pop down" feature of the case. I also have a Canon 70-200 so the case can nicely do double duty.

            I take my camera on bike rides to catch nature opportunities. I had been carrying my Nikon with the Sigma 120-400 lens on a strap over my shoulder. This got very tiring with all this weight around my neck. The new Think Tank Holster works great, I strap it around my waist using a heavy duty Army belt and all the weight is now on my hip. The holster allows quick draw of the camera and the lens hood can remain on the lens.

              I'm impressed with the quality and thought that goes into Think Tank products. Construction, padding, and protection for the camera is superb. There are some well-done handy pockets and sleeves included, but they add no bulk or anything to catch on things, as is often the case when a company tries to over-engineer a product.

              Think Tank's website is very useful in determining what size holster will accommodate various lenses. The 30 fits a Nikkor 70-200 f4 on a D610 perfectly. All my other lenses are shorter, so this case will accommodate them all, some excess space in the bottom being a small price to pay.

              The "Pop Down" feature does indeed accommodate an attached lens hood. Nice to have it there when you need the room.

              I have always been a fan of Lowe Pro products, but Think Tank is causing me to rethink my shopping habits. Their digital holsters are very good solutions when you want maximum protection for one camera and lens, in the smallest and most streamlined configuration possible.

                Comments about Think Tank Photo Digital Holster 30 V2.0 (Black):

                I have been serious about my photography for nearly 60 years now and, over the years, have tried many ways to carry my camera gear ... bags, camera backpacks, waterproof cases, etc. In most cases, my goal had been to make sure I could carry everything with me :) Time and experience, though, have taught me that this doesn't really work :) ... for me, anyway. Today, I think about what photographs I want to take and bring the appropriate equipment ... as little as possible. With this in mind, I want something that protects my equipment and also makes it easy for me to carry the equipment when i am using it.

                For taking photos of birds, for taking photos of horses in the show arena, and for capturing photos of wildlife on a safari, I use a telephoto zoom ... a Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 zoom for horse shows in the (poorly lit) arena's ... a Nikon AFS 80-400 zoom for capturing photos of wildlife on hikes or on safari. This holster works well in either situation. I knew it would work for the 70-200 but have found it works well for the 80-400 too. I use these lenses with a Nikon D800. This isn't critical information but it may be helpful to some who may wonder if their particular combination of equipment will work.

                This arrangement is pretty compact; the holster is tidy, not bulky, but still offers a reasonable amount of protection. When I travel, I put the camera/zoom in the holster and pack it in my carry-on. Depending on the trip, my carry-on is either a general purpose backpack or briefcase. So this works for getting the camera and lens from one destination to another.

                When using the camera I am either hiking or walking around from place to place in the arena. The holster with carry strap (or a belt) is small enough that it isn't hard to carry around and the holster is designed well enough that it is easy to get the camera from the holster to my eye rather quickly.

                The D800 with the 70-200 f2.8 zoom fits well and the combination is easy to use. This has been well documented by others who have reviewed this product. It can be used in the unextended mode if you do not use the hood or reverse mount the hood. And it can be used with the hood mounted if you use the holster in extended mode.

                The 80-400 zoom is shorter than the 70-200 but it is significantly wider, has a large hood, and its tripod ring sticks out about an inch from the body. I remove the tripod ring altogether and store it in a drawer in the office. This lens has killer image stabilization system so the tripod ring is not something I use. A bean bag finds more use in what I do if I need more stabilization (e.g. low light). Without the tripod ring, the lens with hood mounted "ready to use" fits in the holster in the extended mode. Lengthwize it is a nice fit. Widthwize the fit is pretty cozy but it works and the camera/zoom slides in and out pretty easily. It will not fit with the tripod mount installed.

                If you mount the hood in reverse, the lens will fit in the holster in the unextended position. In this position, the hood can "hook", though not in a destructive way, the sides of the holster as you remove the camera from the case. It is still pretty easy use, though. One just needs to move the camera from side to side a bit as you remove it.

                If you leave the hood at home, which some would recommend, the D800/AFS 80-400 zoom fits perfectly in the unextended mode.

                Back to packing equipment ... The camera/zoom combination gets packed in this holster. That is pretty safe if carried onboard. If I want to bring a wide angle zoom, it goes in a Lowepro S&F 100aw. That protects the lens enough and fits in the pack or briefcase. For miscellaneous parts I may need on the trail, I use a Lowepro Utility Bag 100AW. I carry filters, spare batteries, extra memory, etc. here. Things like chargers, usb cables, and the like get stored in another bag that goes in my suitcase. I don't need that when I am walking or bouncing around in a jeep. The holster, the utility bag, and the extra lens can all fit on a utility belt if, I am so inclined, and it is relatively comfortable.

                This is a fair amount of narrative but I hope it is helpful to some of you. I find this holster works very well for the kind of things I do. It protects the camera/zoom; it makes it relatively easy to carry what is a relatively heavy load (D800 + AFS 80-400zoom); and it offers me a modular way to pack my equipment into a backpack with other camera equipment and a few clothes or into a briefcase with my iPad and a few books.

                I would definitely recommend this to others.

                  This is my second Digital Holster and I love them. Great camera protection and the extension feature that allows you to keep the lens hood in place makes it very convenient by saving time when you see that special shot come into view.

                    I was at a Camera Store the other day when I saw these. I've been looking for suitable Lens holsters for quite some time. I looked at leather. Too Pricey and they said they couldn't make one for the Canon 1Dx. I could have gotten a couple for my 2 Canon 7D's but they were just too much for those cameras. Anyway, I bought the 30 V2.0 for one of my 7Ds, should have waited to get them from B & H. One of my 7D's has a Battery Grip so it wouldn't fit in the 30. I have an EF 70-200mm 2.8L IS Lens with 1.4X II Extender and it fits great in the 30. I'll probably get more padding out of other camera bags and put it at the bottom with the zipper open to extend the length. It's a great holster. Easy to get to and easy to carry with other cameras without the fear of them bumping together. I bought the 40 for my 1Dx with EF 24-70mm 2.8L lens and I just ordered another 40, I got the last one at the store thank God, because they are around 10 dollars less on here but I got to check the 40 to see if my 7D with EF 100-400mm 4.5-5.6L IS Lens and it fit, a little snug but that's okay. Ordered the 40 a few minutes ago. I would definitely recommend this holster and the 40 holster. Thanks Think Tank.

                      the Think Tank 30 v2.0 holster fits my cannon 60 D with attached 70-200 2.8 lens perfectly. The bottom of the bag extends to accommodate the lens with the hood in the shooting position. This feature is very helpful and saves valuable time while trying to capture a quick shot. You can also leave the tripod collar on the lens, but I have to shift it to the side.

                      The construction is top notch!!

                        I really like this bag. I use it for my D800 with a 24-70mm lens attached, and I can tuck a 50mm in with it, too. I got it because other bags were just too bulky for me while I'm out on a hike. This bag is sturdy and yet slim, allowing better mobility.

                          I bought this to carry my Canon 5D MKIII with my new Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens attached. It fits perfectly, but there's NO room for much else - maybe an extra memory card. It would really be nice if you could carry an extra battery. I'd have given 5 stars for that.

                            I have my 7D and 70-200L f2.8 and 100-400L bolted on and both fit great in this holster with the hood on too.

                            Love all the extra pockets, Will definately be buying more ThinkTank products in the future!

                            I use the bag mainly for protecting my camera when I don't want to lug around a backpack and works great! Fits my D300s with either 24-70/F2.8 or even 70-200/F2.8 when extended.

                              I bought a Sigma 50-500 lens to go on my Pentax K7. It's a big lens but it fits in this case just fine (ideally rotate the lens mount). It fits even with the first lens extension in place and with the second extension clipped on backwards. The other pockets are small but good enough for spare battery and there is included rain cover.

                                It is a great product if you have a long lens, such as a 70-200mm or even a little longer. It could be totally waterproof, then it will be perfect

                                  This isn't just for long lenses only. I found that using the divider I can place other smaller lesenses in the case and not carry more bags. This tank works great with either my D300s or my D700. Just remember,this isn't your old small camera case.

                                    Probably a little larger than I need, but I'm hoping to upgrade to larger telephoto lenses in the future, so I'm future proofing with this purchase. With my current set of lenses, I can have a larger mounted on the camera and still have room in the pop-out section for a 50mm 1.4.

                                        I have a great backpack that holds all my gear, but it's not very convenient for photographing events where I need to change lenses quickly. I bought this with the Change Up Belt Pack and it's a great combination to hold all the gear I need for an event. Holds a 5D Mkii with a 70-200 f/2.8 IS no problem.

                                          We have a Canon 7D with the 70-200 f/2.8 lens attached. The Digital Holster 30 was purchased to protect the camera/lens from rolling around on the floorboard of our car. The Holster does this well. The fit of the camera/lens is quite snug.
                                          However, don't expect to get much else into the Holster. I couldn't find a place to store a filter in its case, for example.
