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.

    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.

      Really strong and secure

        Comments about 1510SC Studio Case (Black):

        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.

        Comments about 1510SC Studio Case (Black):

        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.

          Comments about 1510SC Studio Case (Black):

          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.

              Pelican is the industry standard and
              offers flexibility. I pack my AF-100
              and lenses in the 1510 and audio gear
              in my second case. They're durable and
              and give me the confidence my gear will
              arrive at the shoot in the same condition as
              it left my office.

                Comments about 1510SC Studio Case (Black):

                I put off getting a Pelican case since I thought it was overkill. Until my lenses started growing midlew. I live in a humid coastal area. I have tons of camera bags, but none that will hold everything. The 1510SC works great. I can fit: 2 Canon 5D m3, the 2.8 70-200 with lens hood, 5 more L lenses, a 15mm fisheye and nifty 50mm. (8 lenses in all.) Plus my 15" macbook pro, all of the lens hoods and assesories. I put the whole thing in the back of my SUV with a thick braided cable through the handle of the case and through a connector in the car. I can put locks through the lid and the case is extremely secure. Bought the Pelican silica gel which is reusable. When I travel I can take it carry on and in the hotel I can use the same cable to secure it. The case has simplified what had become a complicated siutation. This is all in addition to being rugged and watertight and all of the other stuff that comes with having a Pelican case. Will probably buy another one for the audio gear and another for the video gear.

                Comments about 1510SC Studio Case (Black):

                I often take photos at horse shows. This means sand, sawdust, dirt, dust, and, sometimes rain. Pelican cases, this one included, seem to be excellent protection against these elements.

                This case, the 1510SC, turns out to be a great organizer for the equipment I bring on-site. Typically, I might bring:

                - a Nikon D4s with a Nikkor 70-200 2.8 lens,
                - a 13 inch laptop for showing clients their photos
                - a portable backup disk
                - a case of spare CF memory chips,
                - two other lenses for taking fun photos.
                - cables, battery chargers, etc.
                - cleaning supplies
                - a tin of silicon desiccant to keep the contents dry.

                There is plenty of room for everything it is all well protected. I wouldn't throw it off a truck but for any amount of reasonable jostling about, all is ok.

                It fits in the overhead on a plane and the dolly makes it easy to drag it around the airport.

                On site, I encounter deep sand and dirt. I don't worry about the equipment but the dolly is useless in this circumstance. That is not a negative; the wheels on the dolly would have to be about 10" in diameter to keep it from getting mired in the sand. And 10" wheels would not work elsewhere :) So I carry it on site. It is heavy. You need to be sure to eat a good breakfast :) I have been told I can remove the dolly; that would remove a couple or three pounds. I have not tried this yet.

                This is a very good product. It works well for an application like mine. I recommend it highly.

                      Comments about 1510SC Studio Case (Black):

                      From the moment I unpackaged this I knew it was very well made. Pelican stands by their product to the point of not even concerning themselves with padding within the box. Case straight in the original box, and that was it. Easiest unboxing ever.

                      The inner dimensions of the case were clearly advertised, so I wasn't surprised there, but I did have to downsize or sacrifice a few items that used to fit in an older case. That and re-arranging items just the way I wanted to maximize space, took a little while, but well worth the effort.

                      After my first event, the case lived up to its reputation by doing quite well from a 5 foot fall. Not a single internal item damaged and barely a scuff on it. With this thing, I feel very confident my things are safe. Well worth the purchase.

                      Only downsides I can possibly see are:

                      1. Since the case is made out of thick durable material, it does weight quite a bit when it's fully loaded.

                      2. Wish there were more room to squeeze more of my valuables.

                      $ extra is a bit much for pouches

                        The computer and accessory pouches in the lid are convenient but over-priced extras: a) they are a little big; and b) do not offer much cushioning between equipment and whatever is in the pouches. Better to go with the 1510 without the accessory pouches and figure out another way to carry extra batteries, cards, tablet, external drive, flash, etc.

                          This case is GREAT. I own other pelican products, but this one is a great go to for those things you use the most, and need to take with you everywhere.

                          I like the versatility and security I feel when putting my gear in here. However, I do NOT like the weight it adds nor the awkward handle that is not easily accessible.

                          I've been doing more traveling and have been wanting better protection for my gear (especially when doing sports photography). I LOVE my Lowepro messenger bag, but this Pelican 1510SC is bigger, can fit my Canon 100-400mm L, Camera body, Canon 24-105mm L and fisheye 8-15mm L, with plenty of room left for cleaning equipment and other miscellaneous cables and spare batteries. The wheels are a must, and it's actually a tad smaller than my normal carry-on bag I use for clothes, etc. This case is great!

                          I wanted a case that would store all of my gear at home AND ALSO be ready to pack in the car. This case is perfect for that objective. It took me several attempts to find a way to fit everything, but everything does fit:

                          Full frame camera
                          long zoom
                          prime
                          2 medium zooms
                          point and shoot in hard EVA case
                          camcorder in hard EVA case
                          flash
                          3 batteries
                          3 chargers (for all cameras)
                          sc and cf card holders
                          AA (8) battery case
                          rocket blower
                          misc. cords

                          I have not used the top part yet, but I have tried fitting a 15" laptop, and it seems like it will work well. I am considering adding the organizer lid 1519 for times when I don't bring the laptop. Great case. Highly recommended.
