    Very sturdy case with a ton of space

    I purchased this Pelican case to try to fit the following:
    5D Mark II
    20D
    T1i
    70-200 f/2.8 L IS
    24-70 f/2.8 L
    24-105 f/4 L IS
    100mm macro
    17-40 f/4
    580EX II
    Canon Macro flash
    Pelican case for AA batteries (can't remember the model number, but it holds ~20-24 AA batteries)

    So no only did I manage to fit all of that, but I also fit my Pelican memory card holder, Gary Fong lightsphere, quantaray external flash battery pack, Giottos Rocket Air blower and probably a few other things I'm forgetting. All in all that's amazing for a single case.

    My only real complaint is about the quality of the pull-out handle for use when rolling the case on its wheels. The build quality of the handle seems rather flimsy, not to mention the bottom edge of the case is very close to the ground. If you're dragging it on a smooth surface it's fine, but over carpet you might as well forget about it.

    This is the second case i've bought from Pelican. Amazing durability. I have full confidence in the product.

    I also use the 1610 case and i like that one better. It has four latches instead of two. The dimensions of the 1610 case is not only larger, but it accommodates my Nikon gear better. For example, with this case, I have to lay down my SB-900 as opposed to just sticking it into the compartments. If i do this, the SB-900 is just slightly too long to close the lid. My 24-70 with hood on must also be laid down, whereas i can just stick it in to the compartment with the 1610.

    Bottom line: I would recommend getting the 1610 instead of the 1560. But if you can't afford the extra cash, then this case will have to do... for now.

    The 1610 also has larger wheels.

    I wish the 1560 came with more variation of divider sizes. There's basically two sizes that come in this case.

    This is my second pelican case. Great product.
    FYI- This one's too big to use as a carry-on case.

      Comments about 1564 Waterproof 1560 Case with Dividers (Black):

      This is excellent case for my camera and accessories.
      I am using this for my EOS 1DX, 5D M3. In addition to these bodies, it can fit well 2 normal zoom lenses (16-35/4, 24-105/4) and one telezoom example Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 II plus enough accessories.
      It is in the limit to carry on to cabin in a flight, but it is robust enough to be placed in luggage.
      When not traveling I am using this as storage for my camera stuff.

        Comments about 1564 Waterproof 1560 Case with Dividers (Black):

        Now I can get all of my photo gear in one case and keep it dry and clean. When I first open the box it came in I thought it would be send back because it looked way too big. With a few configuration changes I made it all fit quite nicely. I would have like it if they would have made the dividers so they could have been used lengthwise instead of widthwise. I'm very pleased with it...

          Comments about 1564 Waterproof 1560 Case with Dividers (Black):

          I'm a professional photographer and I bought this case to carry all my photographic gears (3 cameras, 9 lens, 4 flash and several accessories). I used to carry all my stuff in a Lowepro bag but found they were never very safe in terms of rain, shock, robbery, etc… . 1 day after I received the case, I was hired to shoot on a small island for a big party. The island is only accessible by boat. This day, it was pouring hard and t was such a chance I had all my gears protected in the case. They are totally isolated from the elements. I love this thing and highly recommend it to all people carrying sensitive and valuable items. It's an excellent protection.

          Comments about 1564 Waterproof 1560 Case with Dividers (Black):

          is exactly what I need to hold all of my gear. I've been searching for a case that would fit my needs. I wanted to avoid carrying multiple bags. I can store my field monitor, headphones, small pelican cases, microphones, headphones all inside this case. If your interested in downsizing the amount of bags you travel with...consider this case as an option.

I LOVE this case... It might be a little heavy but I consider that a plus....

                  I think all Pelican cases are great for being hyper-durable and easy to work with (meaning you don't have to undo 16 latches every time you want to get into one). The addition of the dividers to this one makes it awesome. I don't particularly like trying to measure out and cut foam, and I also don't like the fact that once it's cut, if you ever change what you're keeping in the case, you need new foam. These dividers work great, don't require any cutting or measuring, and can be changed to any new configuration whenever you want. Love it.

                    I put my entire gear in this bag now. Before I used to carry 3 - 4 separate bags with the stuff in it. Now I fearlessly take it everywhere..

                    When i purchased I was not sure if i will get it in time for the wedding that weekend. but when it came in 2 days shipped to Canada, i was overly excited and packed all the equipment in it.

                    I went to the shoot carrying this case and the light stand bag. I could leave it anywhere I wish to leave it and I knew that I wasn't leaving any bag behind because everything was in the Pelican case.

                    I am happy I purchased this bag. I recommend every photographer out there to have one of these bags !!

                    I'm using the Pelican 1564 to hold 4 speedlights, 2 einsteins, battery packs, reflectors, and pocket wizards, and everything fits perfectly. Definitely a good middle ground if you don't need the size of the 1650, and I've even snuck it aboard as a carry on.

                        I am an audio engineer, and I use this case to hold all of my testing equipment, tools, adapters, and microphones. It is the perfect size for all of my gear (pelican makes many cases that work great for this, so just do some research on sizing for your needs). All of my gear is well protected. The padded dividers make it easy to customize how things fit in the case. There are several different divider size options, so you can make virtually any piece of equipment have a home in the case.

                        Comments about 1564 Waterproof 1560 Case with Dividers (Olive Drab Green):

                        Am an amateur photographer and was looking for a good quality case to carry the majority of my equipment in one case, before this purchase, had to carry my gear in different bags which made it hard to remember what was in each bag, not any more. Feel very confident that this case will protect all my gear. BUT, did not received item as advertised. One of the features that drew me to making this purchase was the coloured dividers, the dividers are black, not coloured as in the ad. Called B and H and sales rep looked into it and all they had was black, even called Pelican and all they have is black. Also, the foam that's on the lid does not stay up on the lid. Every time I open the case, the foam stays down over the gear and have to put back, minor thing. The case is not as heavy as I thought it was going to be even with all my gear in it, but I am glad that it has roller wheels.

                        The case was really helpful, I worked at a summer camp this past week as a photographer and videographer. I wasn't sure how the size was going to turn out but I had plenty of space for my 5D Mark III, 70-200 f/2.8, 24-105, 75-300 and flashes. There is quite a bit of space, I figure several more lenses and an additional body would fit with ease.

                          I got this case for my DSLR equipment (2 bodies, lenses, a couple flashes, and other accessories). It's well built, easy to organize, and rock-solid. I've used many other cases and this one is incredible for protecting your equipment. I would have given it 5 stars, but it needs two things that need improvement: 1) better wheels (they are too small, they should be the type on roller blades that can move over rougher ground - the wheels installed are ONLY good on smooth floors, it won't even roll over medium pile carpet well), and 2) A better pull handle (the handle does work, but seems flimsy. It just needs to be a bit thicker, or can be made of square metal tubing which would be more stout - you can only 'pull' and not push the case when it's loaded). All in all though, it's pretty amazingly built. I just use a good fold-able dolly with larger wheels when transporting it around areas where it would be a smooth surface. One last note, this is not for carrying around - it's too heavy. Use a regular sling or back-pack style for doing that.
