    Spider Camera Holster 800 reviews

    Black Widow Holster is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 59.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful but has a few problems I love having the camera at the ready, and the unit works well for this. I use it together with a nice hand strap and it's a good combination. Also, it's very sturdy and the camera clicks into the holster quite firmly. I never have a fear that it might fall off. On the other hand there are a few things I don't like. First of all, the unit digs into my waist and is uncomfortable to wear. This is caused by two wings which stick up and appear to be superfluous. Secondly, a wrench is required to attach or remove the pin from the camera. This is slow and inconvenient. I'd love to see an option where the pin can be integrated with a hand strap.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from fantastic product, too expensive This is a fantastic product, I surprised that there are only two versions of it out and that this is the only company making it. Being able to carry you camera on you waist instead of on a strap across your neck is such a relief. Especially on vacation when you carry your camera all day. Of course depending on your camera and lens you want to be aware of narrow doorways and crowed streets but other than that it was very comfortable to wear and access to my camera was always very easy. So why do I give this product only three stars? Two reasons: first, I purchased my Black Widow clip in Sept and have used it at least twice a week since. Now less than three months later I've noticed the locking mechanism is not as secure as it used to be. I can remove the camera without releasing the lock. I suspect the plastic lock has warped. I intend to bring this to the manufacturers and retailers attention and see how this can be corrected. My second reason is simple; I think the clip is too expensive. It is basically a holster clip for your camera, that's it. If they can make an excellent camera bag that protects my camera, an extra battery and a few other accessories for under $25's, there is no reason why a CLIP needs to cost over $50's.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good hands free solution I purchased this Spider camera holder because I don't like using my camera's neck strap. I use my own belt to secure the holster to my waist which works fine. Overall the Spider holster works well and appears to hold my D750 with 28-300 lens securely. The ball attachment for the camera is solid and the holster comes with a small wrench to attach the ball to the camera. I would not run around with the camera on the holster but walking around hands free is good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Also useful for the H4n I found the Black Widow Holster useful for Pro-Videography when filming run-n-gun style with my 5D, and I need to keep my Zoom H4n audio recorder out of the way. The screw size on the H4n fits perfectly to the pin. The recorder can hang hands-free on the belt, but if you need to change recording settings, just quick-release off the holster, hold in hands, and then snap back on, and continue with the shoot. Because this wasn't originally intended for this use, I still have the issue of dealing with messy audio cables running from recorder to lapel or to camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect holster First I'm going to say that I'm an amateur photographer. I personally have used slings in the past but I wanted something that didn't swing the camera around that much when I'm carrying it. I have also the Peak Design Capture which is good but kept the camera way too close to the hip which I didn't like. I usually use the Peak Design Capture on a bookbag by hooking it on one of the shoulder straps. So I was looking for a good hip holster and found the Spider Camera Holster. This thing is awesome! The ball nut that attaches to the camera make it more maneuverable than the solid connection of the Capture. And it's easy to hook on and forget about it. Very comfortable to wear all way long. Also super comfortable when you sit down since the camera will swing to a more comfortable position. The quality of the Black Widow Holster looks like it will last for a very long time. Definitely recommend people in getting this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice Works like a champ on my overlay belt which also has two Think Tank lens changer pouches on it. I was at first skeptical about ordering because it's plastic. But when I got it, I lost all concerns. It is a very hard and durable plastic and the portion that the camera slides into is metal lined. I have no doubts this will stand up to regular use for a long time. I have used it on several gigs so far and it's quite comfortable. The heaviest set up I got is a D5300 with a Sigma 18-35 1.8 and it holds it with no problems. It could hold a lot more. I do use the spider floor plate with this holster and it does help with positioning the camera correctly. Highly recommend.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from handy but confusing This item is perhaps the most comfortable way to carry my camera...I have tried all the methods. There is just one HUGE glaring issue. Why the heck did the designer put the release mechanism on the wrong side of the holster? If it was on the other side it would be a one handed (perfect) holster. Quick drawing is not so quick unless both hands are free and you've got time to swing both hands onto the camera. Switch the location of the switch and I switch this to a perfect 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very practical for traveling I'm traveling a lot and like to have my camera ready at all times without it getting in my way. I've used the original camerastrap, I've used the sunsniper strap and I've used the black widow. I like the black widow the best. I've been biking with it, I've been walking around cities with it and it's just great. Especially when it's hot or if you have a backpack on it's really a relief. Pro: - Camera ready very fast - Super light and compact (compared to sunsniper strap it takes up no space in camerabag) - You don't bang your camera against things when you lean forward to reach for something - less shoulder pain - In very hot weather you're glad not to have something wrapped around your torso. Con: - When sitting down with a long lens you have to pay attention not to bang the glass against something - With EOS7D and long lens it pulls down your pants quite a bit. So you have to really tighten your belt. - You always need to wear pants that have a belt. - You need 2 hands to grab camera. Snapshots while on your bike are not possible (are possible with sniperstrap)
