PRESS RELEASE: Spider Holster Announces Immediate Availability Of Black Widow Camera Holster
Lightweight and Secure, the Spider Holster Black Widow Grants Photographers Fast-Access to Entry-Level DSLR and Small Body Cameras; Compliments the Body’s Movement with a Streamlined Ergonomic Fit
Ithaca, NY – February 1, 2011 – Spider Holster, a company specializing in unique holster-style carrying solutions for photographers, today announced the immediate availability of its Spider Holster Black Widow Camera Holster, which offers photographers a comfortable and secure carrying solution that ensures quick-draw access for entry-level DSLRs, as well as camcorders, and other small-body cameras such as point-and-shoot, micro four thirds, and new mirrorless interchangeable lens models.
The Black Widow Camera Holster secures the camera firmly to the photographer’s hip and eliminates the neck, shoulder and back strain caused by cameras dangling from traditional neck straps or shoulder bags. The lightweight Black Widow follows in the footsteps of the popular professional tool, the SpiderPro, and is now available in conjunction with several exciting accessories perfect for shooters who want to keep their hands free at all times. Combining the strength of stainless steel and heavy-duty resin, the lightweight and durable Black Widow was designed to take cameras from hip to hand in a flash. When the camera is slid into the holster, the Black Widow responds with an audible click from its built-in locking mechanism, providing users with peace-of-mind that the camera is secure for hands-free carrying and protected from a snatch-and-grab threat.
The Black Widow Camera Holster comes packaged with the required Spider Pin which attaches directly to the camera’s tripod mount or to the accessory Black Widow Plate, and is the key to the Black Widow’s quick access. Designed primarily for photographers using quick-release tripod plates, the Black Widow Plate permits fluid movement, as its unique design ensures the camera lens is always pointed away from the ground. This positioning allows users the freedom of natural movement, like kneeling, sitting down, or climbing stairs without risking an accidental collision with the ground.
“Too often photographers miss the perfect shot because they’re rooting through bags for their point-and-shoot or they didn’t pack their DSLR because it was too cumbersome,” said Shai Eynav, President of Spider Holster. “With the Black Widow Camera Holster, the camera stays put at the photographer’s hip, providing maximum comfort while ensuring that the user is in the best possible position to capture life’s memorable moments. The success of the SpiderPro proved the merits of our design concept and the Black Widow will allow a new audience of casual shooters and photography enthusiasts to comfortably carry their camera to places they never would have thought possible before.”
Along with the availability of the Black Widow, Spider Holster is pleased to announce several new accessories for the product. While the Black Widow easily threads onto any leather belt, Spider Holster is also offering its own Black Widow Belt. The Belt complements the holster’s light-weight design to sit comfortably on the hips, and is perfect for use with slightly heavier cameras or when shooting for extended periods of time. Also available as an accessory to the Black Widow Belt is the Black Widow Pad, a comfortable, cushioned extension of the belt that provides a resting place for the camera against the user’s body. The Black Widow Pad will also seamlessly attach to any standard strength leather belt.
The Spider Holster Black Widow Camera Holster is compatible with most small, medium-lightweight cameras and will retail for $49.99. The Black Widow Belt will be available for $15.99 and the Black Widow Plate will retail for a suggested $15.99. Additional Black Widow Pins can be purchased for $7.99 and the Black Widow Pad will retail for $8.99.
