    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.

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

    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.

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

      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.

            I exchanged the "carry-on" sized Pelican case (too small) for this one (just right). It lets me take all the camera gear I need for location shoots without being too large. Because it is so well built it is very heavy however - even when completely empty - so whenever the wheels can't be used it can be hard to carry around.

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

              I need to travel over long distances in a SUV with a large amount of photography equipment. I did use 1554. But no wheels and it took 3 cases. Next purchased a 1614. Great case and held all my gear, but was too heavy to lift from vehicle when full. Finally purchased a pair of this case. Just right. Can move fairly easily from vehicle to hotel room and back. Weight is tolerable when full. Gear is easy to access. As with any Pelican product is rugged and solid. Recommend that you look carefully at size/weight before purchasing any case. Pelican has such a variety that one should be just right.

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

                This is a great way to keep your gear organized and protected during transport and storage. I always have the tools I need during my photo shoots.

                Before using the Pelican 1564 I was storing and carrying my gear in a variety of bags and storage containers collected over the years. I would inevitably wind up leaving some gear at home thinking it would not be needed during the photo shoot. Even worse, I arrived at a photo shoot thinking my gear was in a bag, but realizing I put it away in a different bag during the last photo shoot.

                The Pelican 1564 is big enough for all of my gear and the included case dividers keep everything organized. I keep multiple flash units, lenses, gels, cables, filters, etc. in the case and it's compact enough to put in the back of the car when I leave for a job. I keep my camera in a shoulder bag, but it could easily fit inside the Pelican case. Now, when I arrive on location I have everything with me - or at least nearby in the car if I need to travel light.

                I can put a Canon 580EX flash unit in the case vertically - so the unit is standing upright when placed in the case with the lid opened as pictured above. This is great because it doesn't take much room in the case and I don't need to dig down to a second layer of gear.

                I may not use the case for travel, but I would have no reservations taking my gear with me knowing it is secure in the Pelican case.

                  Perfect size for me. I sell ranch real estate in Montana and like to have all of my photography gear in one case. The Pelican 1564 can hold my four bodies, 4 lenses, 3 flashes, pocketwizards plus some miscellaneous gear and not be too heavy to pack around. I love the waterproof, hard shell protection. It straps easy to my motorcycle and makes it easy to transport to remote locations.

                  Great case. No complaints.

                                    I've had this case in black for the last seven years (and still going strong), and it is the best case I've ever bought! It carries my Profoto 600r packs and lights, and I absolutely love it! I needed to buy the yellow one for our portable projector and laptop, and I expect this one to last me forever, as well.

                                    I stand on my case and use it as an apple box sometimes. You won't find a better case.

                                    What a tank! But it's like keeping your gear in the womb. Enough room to store almost anything. I have a 5D, 6D, Canon 70-200 2.8, Canon 70-200 f4, Tamron 24 - 70, Tamron 28 - 300mm, Canon 85mm, Canon 50mm, Canon 20mm, Canon 430 Flash, Lightmeter, batteries, chargers, 10 filters, lens cleaning kit, and more bits I can't recall. Do I need it all most days... probably not. Is it great to have it all there so I have ALL the options I've invested in and built up over time? Absolutely!

                                    Downside? You won't need to go to the gym after a shoot but I guess if you're going to stuff all that equipment in a case it's going to be heavy. Just keep in mind that the case itself is about 17 lbs. Protection isn't light apparently. Also, your long zooms will have to lay down flat. Not a huge issue but you should anticipate it.

                                    Great case, if you've got a lot of gear to move and keep safe it's an excellent value. Probably the largest case that you can load, fly with, and move around with without buying a fork lift.

                                      Pelican is known around the world for it's durability. And this case is nothing less than that. It's perfect for event photographers, portraits, weddings, landscapes, and sports. I use it as my home base when shooting on location. This case stays in a room or in my car and I use a separate bag to carry what I need to get the job done. For weddings, this will be near the DJ booth and I can come back to get what I need whenever I need it. The case is extremely durable and can withstand all conditions. You can find more on their website about the durability. I would like to talk more about it's usability. Although its a great case, it can be very heavy. So I wouldn't try to take the stairs with this one...I have not tried to travel with it on the plane, but I'm not sure if the weight will go beyond the limit allowed once all my equipment is packed in there. Also, it doesn't fit a 70-200 is ii standing up...which i wished that it did. You will notice a bulge when you close the case with the 70-200 standing up. Other than that, it's a solid case for the VERY low price. I gave it a 4 star rating because I think the padding could be a lot better. $ worth of gear requires that type of care. My suggestion would be to buy some foam and cut it out to fit with your lens and bodies.

                                      This is a very nice and strong case for me, particularly from the outside. however, the foam on the cover side is a little bit "cheap" and it is not sticked with case cover and every time when I open the case it will fall off. I don't know how to properly assemble those dividers. It does not look like in the manual - I got 4 pieces and I tried to put 2 in the center, but it made the side one very small. the manual does not show you how to do that. Also, the divider should have more soft cushion on the bottom. If it is for the camera, not just sides need cushion, right? So, I would say, nice and strong outside; but poor structure for inside. Because of this, I give it 3 stars.
