The Black Widow Holster from Spider Camera Holster is intended for use with small to mid-size DSLR cameras with detachable lenses. If your gear weighs 2 lb (1kg) or under, the Black Widow can be used with confidence. It works, basically, like a policeman's holster. Your camera rides on your hip. When you're ready to shoot, release the quick-release, take the camera and shoot. When finished, slip it back into the belt and you're off.
This unique system permits you to have your camera on your hip, ready to shoot. It's held in place by your tripod's quick-release plate safely and securely. The beauty of the Black Widow is that it permits your camera to move in sync with your body thereby allowing you to walk, climb or even eat. When you're hands-free, it leaves you free to use another camera, thumb through a record bin, climb an incline or use a computer.
Attach the Black Widow to the optional Black Widow Belt or even use it on your own belt. In either instance, the camera is held firmly in place. Having the camera at hip level, safely tethered, provides a measure of security that a traditional camera strap doesn't provide. Small and lightweight, the Black Widow is small enough to toss into your gear bag or luggage.
