This is a Kickstarter project. If you like to change lenses frequently while you’re taking photos, you’ll have to drag a bag around with you to hold the extra lenses. You’ll waste valuable time looking for the right lens, then taking off the back end cap, then stopping to put away the replaced lens. With a Quikdraw lens holster, you have your extra lens safely stored on your belt and ready to mount in a second. The holster is made of aircraft aluminum and high-strength precision molded plastic, and it will attach to any standard belt. (The photo shows three Quikdraw holsters.) The lens mounts to the holster with the same mounting mechanism it uses to attach to the camera. The Quikdraw’s design holds your lens securely so you won’t have to worry that it will fall from your belt. There are two versions that will work with either a Nikon F mount or a Canon EOS lens (up to 91.5mm and weighing 20 pounds). An early-bird pledge of $75 will get you one Quikdraw; it’s $80 for one after the early-bird pledges are claimed. At the time of writing, about 38% of the funding goal is met and there are still 23 days in the funding period.
