      Comments about Pelican 1300 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

      I own the D700 from Nikon. I generally use a larger Pelican case but wanted one for just the camera and lens. I throw the 50mm 1.8 lens on it for this case. But just for kicks, I tried my 24-70mm 2.8 Nikon lens and it fit with the lens hood reversed. That was a pleasant surprise. Love the pelican cases. This will go on many canyons with me, I am certain. I only put heavy on the cons because I hike a lot with this... and 3 extra pounds is felt, but appreciated for my gears sake.

        Comments about Pelican 1300 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

        I use this to carry around my Canon 7D, with a Tamron 17-50 mm lens (A016), A spare battery, filter, and memory card. All fit really well due to the pick n pull foam. I do a lot of hiking, bike riding, and hanging out around cliffs, whitewater, etc.... I did NOT feel safe bringing my camera with me until I got this case. I still have yet to drop my case with my 7d, I hope i never do. But I have owned pelican products for a long time, and I know they are the best. The 1300 is SWEET for fitting in a moderately large camera body, With lens, and some extras. Its one of the only cases they make with enough depth to not crush your camera too. Its not that lightweight, but thats not the point, carrying around a couple extra pounds is okay for me when im carrying $2000+ in my hand. THE BEST, oh and the desert tan is awesome!

        Comments about Pelican 1300 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

        I like to take my camera outdoors, whether it be hunting, fishing, boating, or woods rides. I was hesitant to get a case that required my skill to mold the interior for a snug fit. I did so and could not be more please with the product. The protection (from shock,from water from dust) exceeds my expectations.

            Comments about Pelican 1300 Case with Foam (Desert Tan):

            I'm already sold on Pelican and this case just secures the relationship. They're rugged, practical and waterproof. And the desert tan color is the perfect option for my needs: I'm converting the case into a remote camera housing for wildlife photography, and the color is a real good base for camouflaging the unit. The plastic also allows me to cut holes for lenses and wires etc.

            In terms of security, I'm not real confident in the plastic padlock holes to keep out a determined thief, but then again, remote cameras are inherently risky.

            New ABS latches are secure yet easier to use than older model latches. These cases are built tough, to handle just about anything you can throw its way or anyway you throw the case.
