Ingenious Modifications Provide Quick, One-Handed Access for Easy, Safe Lens Swapping.
Ithaca, NY (PRWEB) June 19, 2013 - Spider Holster, (http://www.spiderholster.com) a company specializing in unique holster-style camera carrying solutions for photographers, today announced the launch of its newest accessory, the SpiderPro Large Lens Pouch. Designed for the Pro-grade 70-200 mm zoom lenses with the hood attached, the pouch’s unique design provides superb quick-draw accessibility while maintaining optimal lens protection. All purchases will also include the Spider Monkey accessory holster (a retail value of $20.00), which is fully compatible and clips to the pouch exterior.
Ideal for photographers that are looking to maintain a hands-free workflow while eliminating the tangle of shoulder bags and neck straps, the SpiderPro Large Lens Pouch includes some ingenious modifications on traditional top-load lens cases. To improve accessibility and enable swapping lenses safely with one hand, the SpiderPro Large Lens Pouch features a water resistant vertical zipper that runs down the middle. Where traditional lens pouches barely allow enough clearance to wrap fingertips around the large diameter of the lens, the expandable mouth of the Spider Holster pouch enables the photographer to comfortably reach all the way in and take a firm grip of the lens at the mid-section. This expandable zipper opening also allows for a much easier insertion of Pro lenses with the hood attached, as the photographer no longer needs to reverse the lens hood or change the lens’s configuration.
Included with the Large Lens Pouch is the Spider Monkey accessory holster, which is specially designed to safely clip to the outside of the pouch. The photographer can then expand their carrying options by quickly attaching all Spider Monkey accessory line offerings (light meters, speedlights, battery packs) and future items such as lens pouches, rain covers and more.
The SpiderPro Large Lens Pouch also provides a unique solution for the rear lens cap, saving time and hassle when exchanging lenses while keeping the rear lens cap secure while not in use.
With a secure Velcro attachment point, the SpiderPro pouch easily hangs from any belt, allowing for rotation when not in use. The modular nature of the solution means photographers can quickly scale the carrying system up and down to meet their gear needs for any shoot. Crafted using both tough Cordura and flexible Neoprene, the pouch also offers flexibility and strength to safely carry and accommodate various lenses.
“As our product development is conducted by professional photographers, we are able to envision how carrying solutions will work for wedding and event photographers on the job. It was this insight that led to the initial invention of the Spider Holster, and has informed all of our product development since,” said Shai Eynav, President of Spider Holster. “When our customers came to us with a desire to hang a lens pouch from their Spider Belt, we were determined to better the issues we saw with pouches available at the time, and the result was the SpiderPro Large Lens Pouch.”
Features of the Spider Pro Large Lens Pouch include:
Expandable pouch opening allowing for quick and safe access to lenses
Built-in solution for tethering the rear lens cap while changing lenses
A removable pouch lid that can fold back and out of the way when quick access is necessary to protect contents from the elements
Spider Monkey accessory holster clip
