    This is a very nicely made case for your DSLR. I’m completely happy with the quality of construction and padded protection this provides my Nikon D300. It’s the perfect size when I want to grab my DSLR and not be burdened with extra lenses and all the other stuff that I normally would have with me using a larger camera bag.

    The depth of the case is 7.5″ enabling me to fit my D300, and attached battery pack with my 17-55 f2.8 lens. It’s a tad tight closing the top zippered lid, but it does fit and that’s very nice. If I were to remove the battery pack, it would fit very comfortably with a little wiggle room.

    The case has an extremely durable bottom piece that is about 1 inch tall and is a solid plastic base. This cushions and protects the DSLR case from water infiltration if you were to set your case on the ground.

    There are 3 outside pockets. The left and right zippered pockets are marginally useful. They do not expand at all and have little volume but are suitable for lens cleaning cloths, lens filters or something thin. The front pocket is way more useful and has enough room to put in several smaller items. It has a elasticized back nylon mesh panel that you could throw a couple memory cards into as well as two dedicated memory card (SD) pockets with velcro closure on the front inside panel.

    A comfortably padded and suitably wide shoulder strap is included.

    What a great case this is. Very functional, comfortable to carry and just the right amount of space to easily carry a DSLR, decent sized lens plus a few odds and ends.

    It’s a great price and seems to be of the highest quality. I expect this will provide years of good service.

    If you’re looking for something that will hold more gear but is still very easy to carry check out the AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR Cameras and Accessories-Black that I have reviewed here http://www.amazon.com/review/R168VTS3JFPB86

    Strap Broke After 1 minute of Usage!, May 9, 2013

    This review is from: AmazonBasics Holster Camera Case for DSLR Cameras (Black) (Camera)

    The plastic clip on one end of the shoulder strap broke at the swivel joint less a minute after I carried the case on my shoulder. The case fell on the hardwood floor with my Canon 6D w/ a 24-10mm zoom lens in it. Fortunately the case was zipped up otherwise it would totally ruin my day. I owned many backpacks, messenger bags, tote bags… but never had one failed like that. I hate to return things besides I would like to use the case for my trip this weekend. Thus, I replaced the broken strap with one from on of my old camera bags so that I can use it for the weekend. Then I found out this case is awkward to carry. First of all, the plastic loops on the case are too wide so the clips on the strap constantly shifting back and fore as I walked. Secondly, the placement of loops on the case is perfect for an empty case. However, after I put my DSLR camera in it the cg of the loaded case shifted closer to the back of the case. The loaded cased then tilted with the nose of the case constantly rubbing against my hip and the top of the case tilt away from my body. With the shifting of the clips, it makes the case feel larger then it is and awkward to carry.

    After looking closely at the product my assessment is that the case itself is well made but the plastic pieces are a different story. I examined the failed surface of the plastic clip. Almost half of the fractured surface was covered with pores (air pockets or dirts). With today’s plastic injection molding technique so common and well developed, those plastic parts must come from a factory with very poor quality control of the material handling and molding processes. Although I replaced the strap with one that I can trust, what about the plastic loops on the case. Next time I might not be so lucky if one of them fails on me. My $2,000 camera equipment could be ended up in the bottom of an ocean or a canyon. So I decided to return it for a refund. I brought hundred of items from Amazon over the years and I have never returned one because I didn’t like it until now. The irony is that this case is made by Amazon itself so I am disappointed.

    No. I would not recommend this product to anyone unless Amazon improve the quality of the plastic parts and reposition and redesign the loops on the case.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    Just received the Amazon Basics Holster camera bag, and I am officially in love. I’m a small (input, very tiny, 5’2 on a good day) person, and hate having to lug around huge camera bags that seem to take over my body. But this bag is small enough to easily carry around, while yet big enough to stow everything I need for a small photo shoot or just a breezy snap happy day.

    For a rundown: the outer area of the case has one small zippered area on the front of it that also houses two small Velcro pockets that are just big enough for SD cards on one side. On the other side of this zippered area is a little mesh pocket that can easily be used for cleaning cloths, more SD cards, etc. Each side of the case also comes equipped with zippered areas that allow for more storage of small items. The top of the case has a padded handle, and the strap has a movable padded shoulder area that is very comfortable. Not to mention I can easily put the strap on my shoulder or toss it sling style for hands free movement. The bottom of the camera bag is encased in a hard plastic, which is great when setting down your bag on a hard floor/ground plus it’s so solid I have no fear about moisture getting in. Now the inside of the case is lined with a soft microfiber material, and is roughly 8 inches long, and 6 and a half inches wide, but keep in mind this is a holster bag and it tapers down in width. There are two movable Velcro strips that nestle your camera and hold it up in its down position. What I also love above this case is it is very padded, so I’m not worried about any accidental bumps harming my camera. As a side note, the thick padding at the bottom of the case is removable…not that you’d want to do that unless you’re switching it out for another padded bottom.

    Now for the part I was fearful of. Could this small holster fit my Canon 60D with its 18-135mm lens with the filter attached? The verdict…it totally can! There isn’t room for anything else in the case after I managed to stuff my camera strap alongside the lens, but it did fit fine, and I’m not worried that my camera will be damaged in any way. This case is definitely perfect for those who just want to bring their camera along without lugging a mess of equipment, and it can work for just about everybody!
