For clarity, I am not affiliated with this project. However, after watching the videos and reading about it, I did decide to back the project to the tune of three holsters.
Has anyone checked this out yet? I am not a big fan of changing lens in the fields because carrying around several lenses at once is too much of a hassle. Also, I would need to probably bend down somewhere safe and change the lens. Seems risky.
I imagine these holsters will be good to serve those purposes. I can walk around with my two camera, two additional lenses, and change out when necessary.
My only concerns are:
1) Locking Mechanism - I know the videos and website say it's impossible for the lens to fall out. However, my basic nature is to question that so, hopefully, I am wrong.
2) Belt - I am a portly person, unlike anyone in those videos. So I wonder how the holster would work on someone with a bulging waistline lol. My initial impression is that it wouldn't matter because the belt and lenses would sag to below the waistline because of the combined weight. So it seems ok to me. Hopefully, the belt has a good locking mechanism as well.
I am thinking that I might keep the lenses towards the back of my body when I don't need it. I know that's not the intended purpose and I lose a few seconds here and there, but I am fine with that tradeoff. My thinking is that by keeping the lenses towards the back of your body, it allows you to squat, bent or kneel down to get the lower angled shots without having to worry about your gear hitting the floor.
