I originally tried the Pelican 1200 case to house my GoPro camera plus accessories with no luck. The 1400 was my solution with some room to grow! I have bought Pelican cases in the past and will continue to do so in the future as they are a well made USA product made to house our important products!

I bought this case for my Nikon D7000 and I really wish it was a tad larger and the foam inside had two levels for customizing the inside. The worst thing about this case is that the latches are difficult to work. Otherwise, it does its job well. I just have some personal preferences that this product doesn't meet.

Camera Case

By The camera man

from B and H

Comments about 1400 Case with Foam (Black):

It is a very good case. The only thing I don't like about it was its thickness. When I mean the thickness it was a little bigger then my camera so when I made a hole for it, I had to put some foam back in the bottom so it would come out easier. Other than that it was a good case!

            This is my 8th Pelican case; purchased to transport/store a Sennheiser wireless system. If you're spending more than $1000 on a piece of equipment, and intend to transport it frequently, it only makes sense to purchase the best protection available. Pelican is it.

              We are using these cases to create custom Solar Kits that we send overseas. Nothing really bets the build and quality of Pelican.

                    Pelican cases are really the best available cases in the world for protecting gear and equipment. I am a biologist at a National Wildlife Refuge and we use Pelican cases of all sizes and shapes to protect and transport electronics, cameras, and other gear and equipment. There is no substitute for Pelican cases. I purchased Pelican cases from B&H because of their reliability, fair price, and rapid shipping.

                      We have a number of Pelican cases and they are very reliable. The latches on them will eventually wear down and stop working but Pelican always sends replacement latches free of charge.

                              I got this case to safely store a couple of my mics. Unfortunaltey, I underestimated the size case I needed for the 2 mics and mounts. The good news is that there was some other gear I had that needed proper housing, and thanks to the pick and pluck foam, it was quick and easy to get my gear in it. I'm huge fan of Pelican cases.... I'm sure this one will be with me for a long, long time, as all of the others .

                              There is nothing new anyone can say about any Pelican case. If you find the size that works for you it will be the best case to keep your gear safe. Period. It's the gold standard for cases. Portabrace cases are a decent secondary option if the size works better for your needs. Both warrantees are solid.

                                I travel a lot and I have 4 different bags with different sizes and their features. I used the Pelican 1400 to my 2 camera body (D7100 and Nex F3 with their lenses along with some accessories and SJCam4000 unit.

                                  Holds eight Pocket Wizards (vertically) with cords and extra batteries. A little snug but with the pick and pluck foam you can measure exactly. Tough case with lifetime protection.

                                    I was looking for a little case that can fit my camera body with attached lens and few accessories. This case works perfectly for my Nikon D750 with 24-70 f2.8 lens attached. I have room for the charger, USB cable, silica gel and I even make room for the strap. Very durable, great design -it looks like it can survive everything. It's a great size to move around and don't have to carry gigantic case. Very easy to make it to fit your gear.

                                      I use this, and a few hundred others for numerous types of gear transport. These are for some AJA video converters. It's a pelican. Its going to keep my gear safe, it's going to last, and if there are issues, Pelican is going to make it right.
