The SpiderPro Camera Holster is Spider Holster’s breakthrough product, offering unique, unparalleled comfort and safety for professional photographers, enthusiasts and momtographers with professional-grade equipment. Developed by professional wedding photographers, the SpiderPro Camera Holster allows photographers to carry their camera on their hip, relieving them from the neck, back and shoulder pain associated with carrying their equipment on their upper body. The SpiderPro is the original and best camera holster for professional photographers.

The SpiderPro Hand Strap is designed for professional camera bodies and shooting environments. Its unique, thin and extremely durable material slides in-between the camera body and any tripod plate, making it the first truly universal hand strap on the market. The camera slot connection is carefully designed and crafted from proprietary materials that allow both a sound connection to the camera body (allowing easy access of user’s hand in and out of the strap) and flexibility to handle the controls.

The Hand Strap’s unique curved “S” shape positions the user’s hand at optimal shooting position (at 45 degrees to the camera body), allowing easy access to the trigger and all other controls while offering clear access to the battery door and memory card slots. Its combination of design and materials provides real weight support in the correct places: over and above the knuckles, and close to the user’s wrist.

iPhone & Android lenses by Photojojo

 About Photojojo

In 2006, two friends who shared a love for photography and all that it entailed sat down in a coffee shop in Brooklyn and made a list of all of the cool photo ideas they could think of. Over two iced coffees and a Rice Krispie treat, their list grew and grew. A few months later, Photojojo was born. Since then, founder, Amit, and a team of contributors have spent their days looking for all of the coolest and most innovative photo ideas and gadgets. In their own words:

… we scour the internet, rip pages out of magazines, ransack our friends’ closets, and go through dumpsters to find the very best photo tips, DIY projects, and gear.”

Well, Photojojo’s got you covered with their innovative line of lenses for your smartphone.

That’s right – they have an entire line of tiny but impeccably designed lenses that fit perfectly over the camera of your smartphone.

    It is embarrassing that you would use the word momtographer. Have you ever used the word dadtographer? No. Because that is lame. Be better than this.
