Think Tank Photo Releases Holster for Super-Telephoto Zooms

Have you ever wanted to just carry your camera and a super-telephoto zoom lens, without the hassle of lugging your whole backpack along too? Well, Think Tank Photo has the solution with its brand new Digital Holster 150 – a top-loading waist holster designed specifically for that purpose.

Responding to the requests of their customers, Think Tank Photo designed the holster as so many people are now shooting using only super-telephotos – like the Sigma 150-600mm. Intended to replace the need for a backpack, the Digital Holster 150 fits Think Tank Photo’s belt systems, such as the Pro Speed Belt V3.0.

With a fast top-loading action, the holster allows instant access to your kit, allowing you to quickly react to the appearance of wildlife or other subjects with speed. The holster also has a seam-sealed rain cover hidden away, in case the weather takes a turn for the worst when you’re out on a shoot. This is strengthened by metal hardware and YKK RC Fuse zippers, for long-lasting durability.

There’s a handy attachment for a monopods and small-sized tripods, as well as a zippered front pocket capable of stashing filters up to 105mm in diameter. In addition, a front stretch pocket holds any lens caps, back caps, and other small items you may wish to carry when in the field.

Pockets galore, there’s also an inner lid pocket for SD cards or lens cloths, a zippered side pocket for larger accessories (and rain cover), as well as an unexpected (yet useful) business card holder on top of the lid.

If you’d rather take out a few smaller lenses instead of one super-telephoto, Think Tank Photo has included an additional divider so that they can be stacked. To protect your LCD from the camera strap, a removable screen protector is also included.

Two example setups given by Think Tank Photo that would fit the holster are:

  • Canon 7D Mark II with Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Sport.
  • Nikon D5 with 200-500mm f/5.6 VR II.

The Digital Holster 150 is available now, for a retail price of $110.
