I got the Black Widow kit for my birthday to use on my D3100, a small DSLR..

I really hated the neck straps, they hurt my back and neck. The neck straps also allow my camera to swing around and hit everything from people to walls and chairs.. The neck strap made me feel like my prime objective was to take pictures.. my prime directive was to enjoy life and take photos along the way without looking like a silly camera toting dweeb. I guess may may still look like that, but it does not feel that way.

This product with their belt is extremely comfortable. the D3100 is surprising secure.. no swing around.. The belt actually is a nice lower lumbar support. It can be used as a quick shoulder strap as well. I was not going to get the belt, but I am sure glad I got it wit the kit. I feel to use the holster without the belt would be a drag on my pants. My advice is too get the belt and pad!!!

Quality: The belt and pad are of high quality. I felt the plastic holster was a bit cheap. Secure but, I was expecting more metal like some of the pics on the website.

Anyway, brillient design. The belt/pad a must have!!!! A bit cheap on the plastic holster, but it is secure and worth it..

UPDATE May 16.2012 - I used this product since February. Everything worked very well until the last 30 days when I started to notice the little red locking mechanisn was failing to function.

Apparently, the memeory rention for the plactic red lever is failing to return to the locking position after several uses. (est.. weekly use Feb-May). I was unaware of this until my camera fell out several times. The lens strap prevented many hard hits. I was lucky. Neverthess the true test was when I used it 2 weeks ago for a week long trip to Walt Disney World.

I do a lot hiking and I needed something better than my neck strap to carry my Canon DSLR on the trail. I found the Black Widow SpiderHolster on Amazon and gave it a shot based on all of the good reviews. I was not disappointed. This is a fantastic piece of professional gear and does exactly what I need it to. No more camera flopping around on my neck while I'm hiking. Out of the box, you can literally set up the Black Widow on your camera in less than 30 seconds. You just use a wrench to tighten a washer and a bolt.

The camera locks into place using a nifty little ball joint. The camera sits nice a snug against your hip and you can use the Velcro strap to lock into place with the lense facing backwards so you don't accidentally damage your lense. The quick release is basically fool proof. You can remove the holster and attach it to any belt, but I really like the Velcro belt that comes with the unit because its really comfortable and has some padding to keep the camera from banging into your hip.

The quick release is really smooth and fast. You can instantly pop your camera off the holster if you need to get a quick shot.
The ball joint locks into place and you have to push the trigger to release it and slide the camera up and out. I did quite a bit of walking with this, and there is just no way your camera can come unattached.

I definitely recommend picking one up.

I hate camera neck straps. I hate them on my DSLR, and I hate them on my Olympus PEN E-P2. The straps are bulky, clumsy, and prone to snagging. I much prefer to hold the camera using a wrist loop of some sort, but that leaves me with a problem: how do I carry the camera when I need to use my hands?

Well, there are bags. Indeed, there are some very nice bags, such as the Domke F-5XB - but sometimes, all I want is the camera, and I want easy access to it. The SpiderHolster is made for this.

The design is straightforward: there's the "holster" and the "pin." You loop your belt through the two slots in the holster, which secures it to your hip. You secure the pin to your camera's tripod mount. You can then slip the pin into the slot in the holster, and the pin will secure itself at the bottom of the slot, locked in place by a little retracting tab. To remove the camera, you have to apply pressure to the tab, and then you can simply lift the camera out.

When clipped in, my E-P2 (a small mirror-less interchangeable lens camera) rests upside down with the display panel flush against my hip. It's very secure and comfortable in this configuration, and its size makes it unobtrusive. Larger cameras, such as DSLRs, appear to be a bit more awkward; they rest with the lens pointing backward and the rear panel/viewfinder facing forward. I have yet to try this on my DSLR, so I can't comment on how that works in practice.

There are a couple of negatives with this system, though.

This is exactly what I was looking for my Panasonic DMC-G2 (micro4/3 mirrorless camera) when using 20mm, the 14-140mm or anything in between.

I tried numerous strap and sling solutions but never liked how the camera swings around and how the strap restricts your flexibility when using a camera with a well articulated LCD. I looked at numerous clip style solutions prior to settling on this one. What appealed to me about this solution is that the ball allows you to position the camera wherever you like - balancing comfort with sense of security. I prefer to position the camera so that the body and lens kind of hug my leg and the grip is in the perfect position to grab it.

I recommend picking up the dedicated belt. There is a definite pull when using the clip on a normal belt, whereas I don't notice any when using the dedicated belt. The belt can easily be hidden under an untucked shirt or jacket. Even when worn totally exposed the best isn't near as obvious as I thought it would be. I also picked up the pad since I am always wearing jeans with large rivets and I didn't want the camera to get scratched. I am not sure if the pad is all that necessary otherwise.
