It's a terrible feeling to miss a gorgeous shot because you couldn't get to your camera in time.

The unique shape of the bag lets you carry the camera in a ready-to-go position with your lens of choice already attached.

Think Tank digital holster 30 V2.0

Xavier Springer from Montana on 10/3/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Exactly what I expected, very pleased. Holds my Canon EOS 7D with Sigma 17-50mm F/2.8 OS & Canon EF 100mm F/2.8L IS Macro when extended or my Canon 7D and 400mm f/5.6L when extended.

Pros: Small package but roomy

Cons: None

Works with Sony 70-400G

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this with the risk of Not working with the 70-400G since it's not listed. I use the A7r and la-ea3 to adapt, and so glad it works. The fit is fairly tight, and I have to loosen the tripod mount and reposition to make it work, but it works, unlike other bags on the market. It even works in extended mode, where the hood is already out and ready to shoot, great! The competing bag is the lowepro toploader 75 (technically competes with the holster 50), has much better pockets than the think tank, however think tank is such a nicer bag.

Pros: Slim, aesthetically pleasing, great zippers, rugged

Cons: pockets are and afterthought, doesn't have a place to store both lens caps.


Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Think Tank Photo Digital Holster 30 V2.0 is a compact camera bag for a standard-sized DSLR with lens attached. It has a form-fitting design that is wide at the top and narrow at the bottom on the lens end. The "Pop Down" feature lets you expand the depth of the bag for longer lenses or lens hoods. The Digital Holster 30 V2.0 can be used independently with the included non-slip shoulder strap, or attached to a Think Tank belt.

Dimensions: The Digital Holster 30 V2.0 is sized to fit mid-level DSLRs such as the Canon 5D MkIII, 7D, 6D and 60D, or Nikon D600, D300s, and D7000. These cameras can have a wide-angle zoom with the lens hood extended, or telephoto zoom lens attached with the lens hood reversed.When the "Pop Down" is extended, you can fit camera with longer lenses, up to 80-400mm, with lens hoods extended. The dimensions of the bag are:

Interior Exterior Weight
Width: 7.25"
Height: 5"
Depth: 11.25" to 14.25"
Width: 8"
Height: 5.5"
Depth: 13" to 16"
1.2 pounds

Materials: The Digital Holster 30 V2.0 is made of polyester and high-density nylon with YKK RC Fuse zippers. All exterior fabric has a durable water repellant coating, and the underside has a polyurethane coating for superior water resistance. The inside features silver-toned nylon, and high-density extruded nylon, along with a polyurethane-backed Velex liner and closed cell foam dividers.

Features: The Digital Holster 30 V2.0 has the following features:

  • The forward-opening flip-top lid has sturdy YKK RC Fuse zippers to give you quick access from the top. The opening is spacious enough that you can leave most tripod plates attached to the camera. A small accessory pocket is provided underneath the lid to store batteries, memory cards, or filters.
  • The front elastic pocket provides convenient storage for lens caps and accessories.
  • A top-mounted padded handle lets you grab the bag and go. Directly beneath the handle is a small pocket with a hook-and-loop closure for storing a stack of business cards.
  • A removable soft padded divider protects the camera's LCD screen from camera strap hardware.
  • A 2x polyurethane-coated, seam-sealed nylon rain cover is included to protect your gear when the weather gets rough. It is stored in the outer side pocket.
  • The removable shoulder strap lets you convert the bag to be worn on a belt. You can use the rear pass-through slot for a standard belt, or you can attach it to a Think Tank Pro Speed or Thin Skin belt. It is compatible with the Rotate or Lock system.

Rotate or Lock: You can choose how to attach the Digital Holster 30 V2.0 to a Think Tank Photo belt. If you prefer to keep the belt in one position and move your gear around the belt, you can choose the "rotate" method, mounting the bag's plastic tongue behind the belt. If you would rather keep the bag stationary on the belt, you can choose the "lock" method, sliding the plastic tongue into a webbing loop on the outside of the belt.

No Rhetoric Warranty: All Think Tank Photo products are covered by a No Rhetoric Warranty. The products are warranted against any defects in material or workmanship for as long as the original owner uses the product. Normal wear and tear is not covered by the warranty.
