The Digital Holster 50 V2.0 is designed to carry a gripped DSLR such as the Nikon D3/D4 series or the Canon 1D/1Ds/1DX series. It also accommodates standard camera bodies with add-on vertical battery grips. We also recommend this bag if you have a Nikon D800/D700 with a L-bracket or vertical battery grip attached. The shape of the bag conforms to the camera itself, with one straight side and one curved side.

Overall Product Rating:     

Chris, as i've mentioned to you at the Toronto show with the added straps & pockets on this DH bag it now deserves to be rated as a 5-star. Inspite of the fact I already have the older model, I ended up getting the newer V2.0 40 and 50 simply due to its added features .... cheers .... G

If you have a nikon D700 or pro dslr, get the model 50v2. Without a grip, my D700 fits comfortably, and snuggly with it. Extra length is good for other small items. Wish it could be made of water-resistant material.

Been using this case for some time now, moving up from the 40. It offers more room for a top load, still needs a smudge more for mounts attached to head unit. But it travels well, durable and highly recommended. Regards, Roy

This is my first camera/lens bag since a Tamrac bag I bought in the 80's. Wow! I absolutely love this bag. My 7D with a 70-200, lens hood and battery grip fits in it like a champ. I love the screen protection flap that covers the back of the camera so that my strap doesnt scratch it. It's a great bag that offers great protection. I'm sure I will get more of them.

I love the build quality and depth but this loses 2 stars for being too narrow for some lens hoods and the foot on my Nikon 300mm must be removed from the slender style or it's hard to cram in the bag. Would be perfect if not so narrow.

It's much more spacious than Lowepro Toploader pro 75aw, can fit (although tightly) d3s+TC17+N300/4. The two pockets are really nice and spacious enough to put some small accessories inside. My combo fits in a ready to shoot position once the bottom part is extended or in a collapsed hood fully zipped.

Love this bag, fits my D300 with grip and 70-200 with 2X on it with the hood reversed. It's tight but well protected.

I just used the Digital Holster 50 v2 on a hunting trip. I kept my D4 with the Nikkor 70-300 hood attached in there ready to go while slung over my shoulder. It easily handled the jostling and scraping from tree branches. It kept everything dry in the light snow and rain. It would be more handy if the rain cover had slots in it so covered better with the straps and the handle.

I love the build quality and depth but it loses 2 stars for being too narrow for my Canon EF16-35L II even with the hood reversed. Attached to my 1D x I need to give it a push to sit down far enough that I can close the Lid. The Camera just fits, no room to really get your hand in there to take it out. I had this issue ever since I got my 1D mark IV. The 1D X is some what worse.

Used this bag in Nepal ... worked very well with my Canon 1D MkIIn and either a EF 70-200mm f/2.8L or a EF 16-35mm f/2.8L. A snug fit to be sure, but I prefer that ... overall, very happy with this bag and the shoulder harness combination and will be looking for a smaller version to carry a 5D MkII next time around. My only suggestion would be to rethink the rain cover and it's point of attachment ... it tends to be a bit cumbersome to uncover, unzip, and retrieve the camera to shoot in foul weather (rain or snow). I know there is no perfect solution, but I believe ThinkTank could improve on this ...

I had high hopes for the DH50 V2.0 but am disappointed. A Canon 1D-X with RC2 plate and 28-300L with tripod mount also with an RC2 plate will not comfortably fit in. I have to push and force it in to close the top zipper. I know the lens is fatter than the 70-200L but it is still a 77mm lens. Take off the tripod plate and it works fine but then what good is the case if you have to remove major pieces before the case works as you need it to. No hope of using this with a GP-E1 attached regardless of lens choice and tripod mount removed. The length for the lens is fine and girth for the lens hood is fine but the upper portion narrows too much too soon to accommodate the tripod mount.

I used the DH 40 V2.0 during several weeks of backpacking in Zion and the Grand Canyon last fall and it worked perfectly with a Nikon D800E with 24-70 2.8, hood reversed. I extended the bottom of the bag and put a manual focus 20mm 3.5 there. I just upgraded to the 50 V2.0 to fit the same gear without extending the bottom. I rigged a strap to the front of my backpack to hold the holster and now I can take out the camera without taking off the backpack. Product is well made and protects my gear, I couldn't ask for more.

Not bad. However I find the 'pop down' zip concept annoying. My D3s and D3x bodies fit fine but the 7-200 f2.8 with hood gets snagged in the creases all the time, making 'quick draw' shooting all but impossible. Frustrating! Also, a quick release closure which could be used while the zips were open just to hold the lid closed would be useful.

I use 2 holsters (digi 40&50) mounted on a pro belt to carry a 1D mk2 with 2.8 70-200 IS and a 5D with a 2.8 24-70 II. I also use a lens drop pocket for my 430EX II flash, spare batteries and lens cleaning stuff. I like: Both camera are mounted and ready to shoot. Holsters can be moved fwd and back on the belt to reposition them. I use a BR double strap system. The straps can be clipped to both camera at all time. The lid can also be zipped up with the straps still attached to the cameras. If adjusted properly, the double strap system will take some of the load off the belt. Rain cover is great for those long shooting days outside. The little business card pocket is a nice to have when I get approached by a potential client. Limitations: It makes for a wide setup. When you get into a crowd or inside you quickly get bumped or bump someone or someting. Rotating the bags backward helps but the weight balance on the belt becomes really unpleasant. Improving the system: My camera setup is not light and the weight is felt on the hips. A harness is probably the solution to take the weight off but then I loose the advantage of the BR straps. Combination of a harness and integrated straps would be great. I’m pushing, but a back pocket should also be available to clip on the harness to carry a 2 litter hydration pouch. Overall I am really happy with this system. It’s great for those walkabout photos days.

I've been looking for a holster bag that will fit my Canon 100-400 II with the 7D II body. This combination is light weight and great for long walks, but carrying any rig gets awkward after a while. I've always liked holster bags on a waist belt and I wanted to find a bag that fits the 100-400 with the hood in place for quick draw. This bag does that, although it's a snug fit. Removing the rain cover from its side pouch gave just enough extra room for the tripod foot. It wouldn't fit a body with a battery grip. The bag is very well-made with pockets for extra batteries and cards. And I'm sure it will stretch a little with the use it will get, like a good pair of boots.
