The PMG SH1 Quick Draw Holster mounts conveniently to your belt, (2” maximum) and is made of durable T6061 Aluminum. The SH1 allows you to quickly rest you camera in a comfortable place securely while repositioning your subject or walking around without the use of a strap. The sturdy SH1 mount has 2 settings. Setting 1, Slide-Lock, allows you to place the camera in the mount and it will not allow you to remove it without flipping the hardened steel release lever. The second setting, Slide-Open, disengages the locking mechanism and sets the camera in the mount loose and allows the camera to be pulled out at any instant. The spherical ball, machined out of hardened steel, features a 1/4-20 male thread and flat top. The sphere can be mounted in a number of creative ways. Mount it directly to your camera bottom, onto our Bracket Plates or use the popular PASL3 or PAH1 Bracket Plate Accessories that mounts the sphere toward the rear of the camera and allows easy access to the Arca Type Bracket Plate.

For hiking around I used to use a strap which was fine for flat ground. But for steep up or downhills or climbing over rocks or trees, the camera would flop all over the place. With this holster, the camera moves around a bit but is anchored so that there is not a lot of flopping about. And super easy to grab the camera and bring it to my eye super quickly. The only negative thing is that it squeaks as I walk due to some rubbing of the pin shaft against the holster. But that might be fixable if I move the pin to a different orientation but will need some experimentation.
