    If I purchased this specifically for my camera and lens, I would be a little disappointed and would probably award it 4 stars because it is a generic fit (but good enough) as opposed to a perfect fit. There are no flaws in the material or workmanship and it was designed for a generic size of body and lens. What you need to know is what kind of camera I used with this baby. Read on.

    I have more cases than I care to admit. It was a trial and error process. I now use only three of them. This is one of those three. The first one is a backpack style case. I use it when I want to carry just about all of my gear. The backpack also has a special pocket for a thin laptop or in my case, an iPad. I go fully equipped only when I am not certain what I want to shoot or might come across. I’m fully prepared with that thing.

    When I know what lens I want to shoot with and I need room for a few other things, I carry a smaller case that looks like it was made to hold fat binoculars. Finally, when I just want go with the bare minimum, I use this one. When you go bare minimum, you just need something to act as a cover so you don’t scratch your camera up. This case will also protect it from minor bumps.

    All three of my favorite cases happen to be Case Logic. I own many other brands, but I use the Case Logics most often.

    I shoot with a Nikon D7000. This case fits my camera with Nikon’s 18-200mm VR lens very snugly. It doesn’t slip right it. It takes just a little effort, but I don’t have to force it. Of course with smaller lenses, it slips right in.

    The only pocket it has is a small pocket to hold the lens cap when you are using the camera. That’s actually a nice feature. Many shooters like myself don’t like lens cap lanyards.

    For the street photographer or a person on vacation looking for a holster to protect their DSLR!, July 24, 2012

    I’ve been quite used to lugging around a camera bag with my DSLR and lens but for those who want to bring the minimum along with them for street photography or on vacation may want to look into Case Logi’s Day Holster, for that added protection from bumps or scratches, especially if you intend to have this inside your back pack or bag and want that peace of mind that your DSLR will be snug and safe.

    The holster attaches to your DSLR camera strap via a tether strap connected to the Day Holster and you can fit your DSLR with a small lens and also a pocket for your lens cap.

    This particular Day Holster is black and is made in China. With your DSLR lens pointing down, the size can accomodate most DSLR’s via 7.5 inches (19cm), width is 5.9″ (15 cm) and height from shutter to bottom of camera is 4.6″ (11.8 cm).

    JUDGMENT CALL:

    The Case Logic Day Holster will suit a photographer who likes to carry the basic minimum while in shots. Although I tend to prefer carrying a DSLR bag or having a DSLR backup to hold my multiple lens, the Day Holster is great for those who want easy access without carry much at all.

    With that being said, this is not for those who use large lenses and its not for those who have a battery grip. The Day Holster is great if you have a DSLR camera and possibly a smaller lens like a 50 mm or even a kit lens. Something small. But I wish the Day Holster was slightly bigger to accommodate a DSLR with a grip. Otherwise, you will need to carry an extra battery with you, fortunately there is a pocket that is for a lens cap, DSLR cap and can hold a thin battery (or business cards).

    The material is quite sturdy to protect from small bumps or scratches if kept in a bag or around your shoulder, but if dropped, I can’t tell you that it’s that strong, but I’m guessing it isn’t.

    Overall, the Case Logic DSLR Day Holster is useful. I tend to bang my DSLR quite a bit into things, especially on door knobs. But it helps to have this holster that is slightly sturdy enough to protect your DSLR from scratches and small bumps.

    And for street photographers who don’t want to carry much with them. Just a DSLR and a small lens and want that added protection for their DSLR, then the Day Holster is worth checking out!

    I like holster cases because they form fit the lens and you don’t have to remove it. This one fits my Canon Ti2 with its 80-200 Tamron lens perfectly. The camera size guide on the insert says it allows 5.9″ inches across the back of the camera, 4.6″ from the base to the top of the camera and 7.5″ for camera + lens length. It attaches to the neck strap with a 1 inch plastic loop and you can crush it under your arm while you shoot if the bulk bothers you. As promised there is an interior pocket for the lens cover which is one of its best features. The material feels like neoprene and gives your camera protection from dust, minor scrapes and bumps. Note that there is NO internal sling or hard bottom to protect your camera lens from being dropped hard on the lens. It did have enough room to slip my extra battery down in the lens area. There are no external pockets for chargers are power cords but then the idea is to have a day case that minimizes bulk. Nice little alternative to my larger holster that has it all.
