    Photographer's Formulary Spot Meter Holster

    Hello,

    After battering my Digital Spotmeter on many occasions, it is - remarkably - still ticking. It has fallen out of jacket pockets more times than I can count, and won't fit well in my pants pockets. However, I found this leather holster from Formulary. For those who have used it, how is it? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Since the Pentax meter is so often not stocked in camera stores now, I guess pretty much everyone who is ever going to buy one has already bought one, so the same applies to the holsters.

    In case I find a used one, I am still interested in hearing opinions. I would not even bother if they are a pain in some way. I'll probably rig my own version instead, using cloth.

    Apparently, they were made by Zone VI as well.

    Thank you.

    If you have the cash, there are many online leather workers who would make you a custom holster for it. Check cameraleather.com or just google "custom leather" or "custom holster".

    Hi, 2F -

    I use and like one of the leather holsters that PF used to sell. If I was looking for one now and didn't get any bites on the WTB section of the classifieds here, I'd either explore having one made for me, as suggested above, or consider one of these. The nylon pouch looks a little less like a pistol holster, probably a good thing in these times, and would offer better weather protection, I'd think.

    After I got mine back from a visit to the repair shop for drying out and cleaning after it fell out of a vest pocket as I bent over a pond, I decided it would be safer on a lanyard around my neck. I have found it is more convenient as well.

    I just tied a shoe lace in a loop through the eye on the bottom. I use it as a neck strap, and it has served me well. A holster would get in the way of the waist belt on my hiking pack.

    I made a lanyard that loops through my belt and attached to the bottom of the meter. I used a clip from a small dog collar so I can remove the meter from my belt if I need to. The lanyard is long enough that if I drop the meter it will not it the ground.
