The perfect companion for anyone that wants an easy draw-from-the-hip, no strap solution to take their camera anywhere.
About this project
Meet the best holster on the planet for mirrorless and lightweight pro cameras.
Slip it right on your belt, attach our Spider plate to your camera, and shoot like a pro.
The SpiderLight Holster is an intelligent solution for the challenges posed by carrying today’s smaller cameras.
Designed specifically for mirrorless cameras and small DSLRs, this camera holster is lightweight, durable and extremely versatile. The perfect companion for anyone that wants an easy draw-from-the-hip, no strap solution to take their camera anywhere.
Go anywhere, from the trail – to the street – to the studio, with your hands free, and your camera ready to grab the next shot.
We took everything great about our Pro holster, and adapted it for lighter/smaller cameras.
- All-metal durable construction and ergonomic Holster design.
- Two-position metal lock ensures security & fast draw action.
- Securely clips to your own belt or to our SpiderLight Belt.
- Quickly change from hip to to backpack with the SpiderLight Backpacker!
- Connect to any tripod plate. Built-in ArcaSwiss tripod profile to boot.
- Provides a connection for any tripod quick-release plate. Does not block Mirrorless camera battery doors!
- Adjustable for thinner or thicker camera bodies/grip configurations.
- Optional tether/quick connection for Sling Straps.
Our patented ball-joint system gives your camera just enough freedom of movement so that it’s not rigidly bolted to your body.
Your camera moves freely with you as you move. Your lens points backward allowing you to squat quickly with no worries, and your flash (if you use one) hangs parallel to your leg. No other camera holster offers this level of comfort.
Your Camera is Safe
The SpiderLight Holster has a two-position lock. In it’s lower position, the lock secures your camera each time it’s placed in the holster. In the upper position, the lock disengages for quick and easy access to your camera.
The SpiderLight Holster is stainless steel and hardened aluminum cast, making it extremely durable for active shooting environments.
For the seasoned Mirrorless photographer. Our durable SpiderLight Holster attaches to our slim and ergonomic SpiderLight Belt. Attach all Spider lens pouches and belt-mounted accessories with ease and get any type of shoot done with extreme comfort, speed and agility.
For pros shooting mirrorless, the single camera system easily expands to a dual camera system with the addition of a second Holster, Plate and Pad, that easily attaches to our Belt.
