Think Tank Features

  • Shoulder Strap: A mid-weight, no-slip shoulder strap is provided to carry the bag while preventing it from sliding off of your shoulder
  • Side Pocket: A pocket especially designed for digital accessories such as Pixel Pocket Rocket is located on the side of the bag
  • Side Pocket: Batteries Inside of the side pocket is an elastic pocket - perfect for carrying one or two extra batteries
  • Rotate or Lock: The back of the bag incorporates "Rotate or Lock" mechanism, which allows you either to rotate the entire bag on Pro Speed Belt or to lock it into position with the plastic tab
  • Rotate or Lock Flap: Although the bag is designed to work with Pro Speed Belt, it can also be attached to a regular belt with the hook and loop attachment system
  • Digital Holsters work best with Pro Speed belt
  • Pop Down Expansion Feature: A horizontal zipper is located on the very bottom of the bag. When unzipped, it expands, allowing for longer lenses or lenses with the lens hood in position ready to shoot
  • Inner Pocket: The inside lid has a clear zipper pocket with blue trim and red lace on the zipper slider for easy identification of your accessories, like lens caps, lip balm, aspirin and memory cards
  • Seam-sealed Raincover: Protect your gear from the elements! A pocket on the inside holds a seam-sealed raincover. It is also completely removable from the bag for convenience
  • Two Stage Raincover: Because the Digital Holsters adjust to two different vertical lengths, the seam-sealed raincover can also be adjusted to two different lengths
  • Inner Divider: An inner divider can be used to carry and keep separate two shorter lenses
  • LCD Padded Cover: We provide a soft, fleece lined hinged flap to cover up your LCD and protect it from both your camera strap and the contents inside of the top inner pocket
  • On the Pro Speed Belt: When wearing the Digital Holster on Pro Speed Belt make sure to rotate the bag regularly along the belt during the day to shift the weight and achieve maximum comfort. You can also use the shoulder strap to help distribute the weight

Nice bag

My D300 with a 300mm f4 fits in this bag like it was custom made. There is a more storage than I thought there would be for memory cards, lens cap, etc. The zippers are good and it comes with a stowable rain cover. I might need that someday.

Nice and Roomy


from Virginia Beach VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Lots of room to handle a D600 with 24-70 and hood in place.


Worked from kayak after adjustments


from Norristown, PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Someone on Flickr was taking excellent wildlife pictures from a kayak, i got intriqued & he told me he was using this holster - with a similar camera & lens to mine. I got the holster & harness combo - & my first kayak. I've been out about 7-8 times with camera, working up from older cameras (I am not an experienced kayaker). I've found two challenges with it: 1. Switching from paddling (& camera in holster) to camera in hands, lens zoomed out, aimed & focused takes a while, i'm thinking usually 7-10 seconds. I usually feel like i have to move quickly. As the holster gets more flexible from usage, it's a little bit easier to get the camera in & out. Also i've got quick-mounts on the camera & lens & camera strap on the camera (canon 7d + 100-400L trombone lens + lens hood) which makes it a little tougher. Repetition does make this a little easier. 2. The stock range of holster adjustment was insufficent to mount it high enough on my chest (sitting in the kayak the holster was resting more on my legs than i wanted, and too sloppy for satisfactory kayak paddling). I simply tied off the higher chest straps of the harness and mostly solved this.


Not what I thought


from Irvine, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I purchased this so I can carry my 2nd camera with an attached 70-200 lens. I had to return the product not for any other reason than my camera body was too big to fit (I had a battery grip on). Other than that, It looked and felt really good. Can't offer anymore than that, as indicated, I returned the item the same day I received it.


Very well designed


from Anacortes, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I love this case. I get a new case for every camera system I have purchased. Never had this holster design. Not a lot of extra storage room, but it holds my NEX-5 attached to the Sony 18-200 mm telephoto lens. No room for a second lens, but then, I don't need another lens. Barely room for a flash and battery. But, for those purists who want the minimum case (volume and visual impact)this case can't be beat. Purchased the matching belt ([$]) and was worth the exorbitant price. I want this case on a belt, not a shoulder strap. This very well designed belt keeps the bag from sliding along the belt.Got the water bottle holder too (RU Thirsty) to balance the load, and for water on long hikes--or a bigger flash attachment at night. Very well made and designed.


Great Travel Camera Case!


from Plano IL.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This csmera case is great for traveling light. It is not as bulky as my other Canon carrying cases (which are great for storage, but are cumbersome to carry at times). There are several storage pouches for lens cleaner, extra memory cards, business cards, batteries etc. This case expands to accommodate a variety of size of lens attachments to your camera. This is the case I use most often for taking my camera for a photo shoot.


Very well made


from Pittsburgh, PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Even though I sometimes use this along with Think Tanks harness system, my main use is storing and transporting my Canon 5D Mark II with a EF 70-200 f/2.8L II attached. The case is well padded and has very good construction. It feels like it could take almost any kind of abuse that you could throw at it.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DONALD G  To protect the camera and lens duringInclement weather in the winter.
Shopper  1.Can this be used for holding Nikon 5100 with 18-200 VR lens or 105 VR Micro lens with hoods? 2. Can this be attached to waist belt? Surindar Nagpal
TOM M  I would not know - I use Pentax. You should check Think Tank's web site. That's where I found the information I needed.
Shopper  I can see that the length would be fine for the D700 + 70-200mm with hood on. If I have the D700 with MB vertical grip would this still fit nicely or I have to go with the "Digital Holster 50 V2.0"?
JORGE M  I bought a Cannon EOS 5D Mark II Digital Camera with a Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto EF 24-70mm. A Think Tank Digital Holster 30 V2.0 was sufficiently large (body+lens+hood) without using the expansion. JGM, Cincinnati
