A Holster for your Camera

A Holster for your Camera



File this under, “why didn’t I think of that.” Turns out I would have scoffed at something like the Spider Camera Holster a few years ago as overkill, or just another piece of photo gear to satisfy the photo geek. Who really has a problem with regular straps and supports? But then I shot events for a couple of years with my typical camera-carrying approach, which was to put my wrist through the camera strap in a particular way, locking it around my elbow so that the camera was in my hand and ready to go without being hung around my neck. The problem is, after shooting this way for several years I’ve developed a significant issue: tendonitis. More specifically, tennis elbow – or in my case, photography elbow. And it hurts. I don't mean it's a little sore, I mean knee buckling pain if I reach for a cup of coffee the wrong way. The point is, the repetitive injury from lifting my camera to my eye hundreds of thousands of times is a serious problem. I now have to wear an elbow brace if I'm going to be shooting an event or other situation in which I'll be shooting candid shots for hours and days at a time. It may not be super cool, but it's a lot better than constant excruciating pain. If a device like this can aid other photographers who have neck, back or shoulder problems from the way they carry their cameras, I say, “Don’t be shy.” Use this support before it’s too late. Maybe this is next for me because now I sling two SLRs around my neck when I shoot events. I look a little bit like a geeky tourist, but I'm a lot more comfortable. And I cry less after photo shoots. Check out this SLR Lounge review of the camera holster and see if it’s for you.
