Have you ever wanted to leave the camera bag home and just venture out with your camera? But, the thought of having a camera swinging from your neck forces you to bring the camera bag anyway? Well, the B-Grip is your solution!
I was wandering around Adorama last week and I found their newest exclusive item called the B-Grip. Designed in Italy, this camera holster loops through your belt to securely carry almost 18 pounds of camera weight! The holster design extends 6 inches down your leg to spread the camera weight over your hip. And, there are several other design touches that make it a winner. I love the quick-release system with a BIG lever for quick access. Even the quick-release plate was designed for convenience with a turn-screw built right in. The B-Grip even includes an all-weather cover to protect the camera while out in the elements and a safety-clip to further secure your camera.
I spent some time this weekend using the B-Grip. Instead of looping it through my pant’s belt, I found it quicker and more comfortable to add a second belt just for the B-Grip. This method allowed me to wear the B-Grip lower on my hip to comfortable carry the weight of the Canon 7D, BG-E7 Battery Grip and 70-200mm f/2.8 IS L. I could easily see using the B-Grip to keep a second camera at the ready instead of buried in my camera bag. The instructional video even shows how to use the B-Grip to hold the camera while you switch lenses. Very clever!
NOTE: B-Grip will work with belts 1/4 inch thick or less and the sturdy composite plastic will not give to force a thick belt through. I could not use a woven leather belt with the B-Grip (too thick), but a plain leather or woven camera strap will work fine.
The B-Grip is an Adorama exclusive.
