      Comments about 1050 Solid Micro Case (Black):

      I've owned a good number of Pelican cases over the years, mostly to carry photo gear. I hadn't ever seen one this small in person, and was very pleased with it when it arrived. It's perfect to protect my small electronics from the environment, and the soft-ish inner padding prevents every movement from causing the bits inside to bang around. Highly recommended!

            Comments about 1050 Solid Micro Case (Black):

            The appearance of this all black case is not as good as the clear lid verson (I owned a 1050 clear/red for few months). However, when I opened it up, I found there is a foam inside the top lid which provide the addtional protection of my equipment.

            Pelican 1050 allows me to put all the accessories (ie spare batteries, remote control, USB cable, ...)and the recorder in one single case. I know I never left any accessories behind when I am in hurry.

              I ordered this case to hold survival supplies when I am in the field. Perfect size for bare necessities when backpacking/photographing away from support. Rich color and it will last longer than I will.

                  I uses this smaller Plican case for flash triggers. Added pick'n pluck foam for a custom fit. I can now throw the case into a backpack or suitcase and not worry about these sensitive little devices getting messed up.

                            Using it to hold my zoom audio recorder. It is a solid well built case and well worth the price to protect my gear.

                                I bought the 1050 Pelican case for my soon to be purchased Panasonic TM90. I have the smaller Pelican for my Panasonic digital camera and love it. These Pelican cases are incredible and for the money, they can't be beat!

                                      I purchased 2 of these and 1 is for the GoPro Camera and it's add ons and the Other for an I -Pod which is in it's rubber case and will not fit inside a regular Pelican I-Pod case. Both cases allow me extra room to carry cords as well as a Duracell battery charger system with it's cords. I also have another of these purchased sometime ago that houses a Garmin 1490LMT GPS system with cords. ( Sadly the Garmin was not purchased from B&H as for some reason they do not sell GPS Units, HINT:):) )

                                        With the pluck foam insert there is no movement or risk of my camera breaking.

                                            I use pelican cases for everything! This case for point and shoots, and misc. cords, etc. The case is virtually indestructible, and my only complaint is that is isn't rated for COMPLETE submergence to greater depths. Depending on what you do, this may not matter. Basic splashing and small contact with water is fine however. I also HIGHLY recommend their memory card case.

                                              locks nice and tight, is rugged and not flashy - all perfect qualities for an item that stores expensive gear. I use mine for PocketWizards (they both fit in but JUST barely).

                                                I use this for my emergency kit when camping and hiking. It's perfect for storing extra matches, a knife, flashlight, flint and steel, and compass. It does it's job well and keeps everything dry with minimal additional weight at great price. So far I haven't found any problems, but I hesitated to give it a perfect 5 stars because I haven't use it for very long. I ordered 2 more to use for my video camera accessories such as extra battery packs.
