How to properly position your camera on a SpiderPro single or dual cam system. Properly positioning your camera(s) in the Holster is extremely important to achieve maximum comfort and minimal wear-and-tear on your Spider system. This PDF shows the proper camera positions in many common configurations.
I absolutely love this holster! I suffer from back and shoulders problems so I was looking for something to take the weight off of those areas, and this holster was exactly the product I was looking for. I typically shoot a mirrorless camera with a 70-200, and it feels so secure. I love that I have the use of my hands and know that my camera isn’t going to go anywhere! Could not recommend this holster more!
Give it a chance
Felt awkward at first and you have to be aware that you are "wider" with it on. Shot a rural county fair and then took to Europe. Really liked it and my neck felt great without the strap!
If you're an event or portrait photographer just get it. When I got this and was putting it together I thought, "they've thought of everything!" The weight distribution is great using it Spider's medium and large pouch and you can feel confident that your camera is secure. It's not going anywhere. Also, you can kneel and bend down with it so it doesn't get in the way of shooting at all.
• Accommodates waist sizes 27″-50″ (extensions are available)
• Belt buckle has 3 point release for extra security.
• Unique Self-Locking Design allows safe carry with ease of use.
•Quick-Draw one handed operation!
• Pro₂ Plate has built-in threaded holes that fit any tripod plate.
• Rugged construction can safely carry and operate your heavier DSLR camera and gear.
So how does it work?
It’s actually very simple: Size the Belt to your waist size with the sliding waist pad, (our Pro Belt accommodates waist sizes from 27–50 inches), attach the Pro₂ Plate to your camera’s tripod mount with the built in allen wrench (we provide extra tripod mount points so you can still keep your quick-release plate attached.) After everything is attached, slide your camera into the holster!
The lens should always be facing directly back when holstered, this allows our self-locking design to balance your camera, and protects your camera lens from being bumped while kneeling or setting up shots.
Spider Pin – Designed for optimum security, it is made out of stainless steel for corrosion resistance and strength. The design does not allow the pin to ever come loose, so your gear is always safe at your side. While we don’t recommend swapping the pin that is pre-installed on the right side, you can purchase an additional Anti-Twist Pin to install on the left side if needed!
Built in Tool – The Pro₂ Plate has a built in allen wrench with spring loaded release!
Anti-Rotation Stops – The “Camera Bumps” on the front of the Pro₂ Plate hug the front of your DSLR camera and prevent it from rotating when installed!
Rubber grips – Provides slip resistance and improves the connection to your camera body.
Tether/Strap Connection (optional) – Compatible with the Spider Web Tether and most third-party sling style straps. This allows the use of any quick-connect/carabiner style strap without interfering with the Pro₂ Plate’s tripod connections.
Spider Pro Holster Features
The Spider Pro Holster features a self-locking design. The geometry of the holster and plate prevents the camera from moving up and out of the holster accidentally.
Simply rotate camera upward for a fast release. This feature feels natural to the user, while providing an extra layer of security for your camera, even when the lock is not engaged!
