Perfect for a simple need
on May 22, 2009
This long zoom holster case is wonderful. I decided on the long over the short to insure that I could fit my Nikon D40x nicely with any lens attached. The longest lens I use to date is the 55-200mm VR. In the holster, there is still a decent amount of space between the camera back and the zippered top of the holster.
Carrying my camera without the holster, it was constantly bouncing off my body when I walked. With the holster, you barely notice a sway and it's so much more comfortable to walk with. While on a recent photo shoot, the holster still over my shoulder, was never in the way and is very light.
Construction is very good. Material inside and out is soft but firm/protective. I greatly appreciated the outside pocket to hold my lens caps with easy access!! The top carry handle is in a direction appropriate to carrying without awkwardness. (You'll notice there is another brand, if you're researching holsters, where the handle is in an opposing direction. Just didn't look right for carrying).
When you're using the camera, the holster comes in handy to hold glasses or sundry until you're ready to swap out with the camera. Excellent little companion! Most of all, I'm happy I choose the larger of the two holsters offered. The extra room offers options.
