Never miss a shot with the Roberu leather holster

This handmade leather camera holster lets you access your shooter quickly and carry it with John Wayne style.

Roberu leather holster

Like the idea of looking like a gunslinger in an old Western?

Online Japanese design shop Roberu has created a leather carrier that looks like a gun holster to carry mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (ILCs) such as the Sony Alpha NEX-5N, Olympus Pen E-PL3, and Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5, to name a few.

The rationale behind the carrier's design, according to the site, is that the holster lets the photographer quickly whip out the camera to shoot a passing scene. The leather holster is usually worn on the wearer's waist using a supplied leather belt.

Although this camera holster design isn't new, we like that Roberu's version is handmade using genuine leather, which would give it that vintage worn-in look after prolonged use. The unevenness of real leather also means no two cases are identical, making them more unique compared with mass-produced, nylon varieties.

Available in black, dark brown, and camel (medium brown), the leather camera holster retails at 18,900 yen ($242) at the Roberu online store.
