The Pelican 1510SC Studio Case (Desert Tan) provides ample room for your travel needs with a durable, weather-proof design. The case features a durable hard plastic exterior that can stand up to the abuse of travel thanks to its crush-proof design. Additionally, its O-ring seal keeps out dust, dirt, and water so your items remain protected regardless of the weather conditions. Further, the case can even withstand submersion in water thanks it its IP67 rating (1 meter submersion for 30 minutes) without damaging your laptop, clothing, or other critical items thanks to the built-in automatic pressure equalization valve. The rugged polycarbonate shell is also designed to resist harmful chemicals as well as corrosion. The stainless steel hardware and padlock protectors are as durable as the rest of the case.

    I'm able to fit the following gear: NIkon D7100, D610, SB910, 50/1.4, 105/2.8, 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, 15" macbook...
    But... That makes this case extremely heavy!
    When packing this case, the wheels jut into the packing space taking up room and testing your "Tetris"/organizational abilities. The padding is really cheap - I expected better; part of the velcro was tearing off upon arrival and in general the padding is thin and feel cheap.
    Ultimately I did decide to keep it. The case itself is well-constructed, sturdy, air-tight, hey - it's a Pelican! I will just be extra careful how much I pack and how I arrange my gear for my specific needs. I just wish the lining were of Lowpro or ThinkTank quality.

    Comments about 1510SC Studio Case (Black):

    Well designed and highly functional. Not worried about there not being enough overhead bin space on a flight because they can just check it! Get the TSA locks though.
    the internal pockets are great but the big one is a little poorly designed. I think you can exchange it for a couple or maybe three small pockets.
    Padded sides not as much protection as foam but much nicer to work with.

      Pelican for the traveling photographer

      By Jcarlie

      from St. Louis

      Comments about 1510SC Studio Case (Black):

      I am a traveling photographer and that means being able to transport my gear safely and stress free. When I first started I used paded dividers in a sturdy suitcase and now I've upgraded to the pelican. It honestly is life changing for the traveling photographer and it's the best investment I've made this year. I have used pelican cases for years and they work the same as the first day I bought them. Extremely durable and rugged proof. So I finally decided to get one on wheels. Which is also a bonus because it takes all the weight off your shoulders and back and makes walking across the airport a delight. If your considering this, it's a must.

            Comments about 1510SC Studio Case (Black):

            So, I picked up this case after having another well known brand case for quite a few years. After one of the latches broke on it and I couldn't find a replacement...I decided to give the Pelican a try.

            I like the feel and the wait of the Pelican. It is just about an inch smaller inside, than the other case.

            The only thing that I will miss the other case for is the fact that you can adjust the handle and turn the case into a trolley/dolly/hand truck. Now if Pelican incorporates that into their design...that would be a winner.

              I used this case as a carryon to go to the desert. It fit all I needed including three camera bodies and multiple lenses and filters and laptop. It is perfectly sized to carry on yet I was confident that it could have been checked if need be. While I don't ever hope to try out the waterproofing with complete submersion I am completely sure that it won't take in water as it had been sitting in water in the boot of my jeep. It is going to be my go to case to go back and forth between my homes for my gear.

                This Pelican case is a great piece of gear. We purchased a total of four cases in preparation for filming our latest documentary on location. We needed sturdy cases that could protect some of our most delicate equipment while stowed in the back of the grip truck. This specific case, the 1510, was purchased to house our Canon C100, lens, batteries, charger and Wooden Camera shoulder-rig. It did the job, and then some! The hook and loop partitions are easy to customize, and the lid organizer is very handy for accessories. I highly recommend this Pelican case, and Pelican cases in general – they are the filmmakers friend for sure!

                  The product came on the date they said it would and this is probably one of the best gear purchases I've made in a while. It's perfect for air travel which I needed it for. I can fit all my needs for a gig inside and it's safe. I am recommending this to everyone who asks me about how I travel.

                      I have had a large Pelican case for 14 years and it still keeps rockin. So when I got my DSLR package I wanted something more compact and that I could get on the plane and of coarse Pelican had the 1510. Everything I need fits. It's a bit snug in places but nothing jumbles around inside thats for sure. I cant get my 70-200mm soft case to fit when fully loaded, but thats a minor inconvenience. Happy consumer as far as this and all Pelican products.

                      Great case. I can cram everything I need for my camera set up and accessories and cuts down on the number of other cases I need going out into the field. Dividers are essential.

                        I'm a big fan of both of my 1510 Pelican cases. This one is nice since it can, obviously, hold a laptop. The one thing I would advise people to look out for is that since it can hold a laptop, it doesn't quite have the same verticle room for gear in the botttom half. It's the same size in the bottom half as other 1510 cases, but it doesn't have the same forgiveness for equipment poking over the top of the lip. For example, you can no longer put a canon flash vertically in the case on the left side if you have a laptop taking up vertical space on the left in the top half. Since this is the fault of physics (and the FAA) I can't take points away from Pelican... Overall, I'm very happy with it. I only wish it came in more colors, so I could quickly tell my two cases apart - my fiance and photo partner didn't want to use a desert tan one :)

                            Always pleased with Pelican products as i travel alot. Had a couple of latches bust on me cause of the airlines (go figure) and called pelican and shipped me new latches no questions asked. This case Is nice very nice quality saw cheaper cases but not near as nice worth the extra coin. B&H was very prompt and answered emails very quickly.

                              I'm able to fit the following gear: NIkon D7100, D610, SB910, 50/1.4, 105/2.8, 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, 15" macbook...
                              But... That makes this case extremely heavy!
                              When packing this case, the wheels jut into the packing space taking up room and testing your "Tetris"/organizational abilities. The padding is really cheap - I expected better; part of the velcro was tearing off upon arrival and in general the padding is thin and feel cheap.
                              Ultimately I did decide to keep it. The case itself is well-constructed, sturdy, air-tight, hey - it's a Pelican! I will just be extra careful how much I pack and how I arrange my gear for my specific needs. I just wish the lining were of Lowpro or ThinkTank quality.

                                I did a tally of all the equipment I have and how much it costs. I quickly realized that buying this case to protect it all during transport would be cheap insurance. This unit is really well built and strong. I tried standing on it to see if I could use it as a step stool when using my tripod above eye level. Well, it held all of my 190 lbs. without complaint. Now I don't plan to do this very often but it is nice to know that I could do in in a pinch.

                                Most often, I will use it for storing my equipment. The dividers are nice and the extra pouches in the lid for laptop and accessories are what sold me on this model. As many have indicated, the laptop case is designed for the largest of the 15 inch laptops, so my Dell laptop fits perfectly. If you had a thinner laptop then perhaps you would have some extra room. Since laptop thickness varies, I think Pelican may the best decision they could be making it big enough for chunky laptops like mine.

                                As far as looks go, it is industrial looking, and that is fine with me. When traveling, someone may surmise that something important is locked away in the case, but they would have no idea that it would be camera equipment inside. So, there is no reason to think you have to disguise this case to thwart potential thieves. And buy the Pelican TSA locks – two of them. They are very nice and easy to use.

                                I've always used Pelican products for my lighting and grip gear, and decided to switch to this case from a Think Tank Airport International, so I could fit my laptop inside and carry one less bag. Overall I like it, but the space is tight. I had to remove two lenses and a body and all the small miscellaneous stuff from my road kit to fit things in here. My Nikon D4 barely fits in here as it's a little too tall. If you're shooting a smaller body like a D800 or Canon 5D, and prime lenses, you'll probably be able to fit more things in here than I did. A further downside, is that like most Pelican products it weighs a ton. Packed with gear it is a beast to lift up high. Would have been a huge help if they put a handle on the bottom. Not perfect, but I'm happy with it.

                                  Bought this as my SLR gear case and also to combine with my laptop when I travel. I have another version of the 1510, with the dividers and the mesh lid organizer. This lid organizer is nicer, with plush padding, and fits my laptop perfectly. The only thing that I'm not sure about is the strap, which is supposed to secure the laptop, but with the way that the velcro is positioned, it's not really possible to tightly secure it past the default position. I might sew more velcro in place to be able to tighten it.

                                  My one suggestion for Pelican is removable pouches that can be placed inside the laptop sleeve when it is not being used to store the laptop. That would make it more versatile.
