I really like this case. I was able to get a Canon 40D with a Canon EF 24-70mm lens attached in the case plus a Canon EF 100-400mm, a Canon EF 70-200mm, 2 Canon 580 EX II Flashes, a Canon 2X Tele Extender, a Rocket air blower, and a battery charger. I double padded the inside edges for the 2 long lenses and laid them end to end with double padding between the lenses. That used up all 6 small dividers. In the medium side I double padded the inside edge of the case and placed the camera in with lens facing the double padding. At the other end of the medium side I laid the 2 flashes side by side and installed a divider. That left a small area between the camera and the flashes. That's where I put the 2X extender and there is enough room for a 1.4X extender.
I installed 1519 lid organizer (do not over tighten the little screws, there is not much bite in those little screws).
Use the foam from the lid to seperate the lid stuff from the camera stuff and keep it all from moving around. As a carry-on it will be ok. If I have to check it, it's double padded.

While its large enough to carry some stuff. This case is too small to really carry a lot of gear. I got it for a Canon 500mm F4.0 lens. The idea was I'd beat this case up and save the $500 Canon hard case. Well the 500 fits in it and not much else, you can get a 70-200 F2.8IS in it as well as a flash and its full.

If you are NOT carrying it on the airlines, I'd say buy a bigger case.

I can Pelican improved on the latches and they are sort of a 2 step locking thing and they work very well and are much easier to close. Also the TAN color stands out and makes it easier to spot in a sea of BLACK cases.............

I can say its STRONG and well built. I do prefer the dividers to the foam (cube foam flakes off as you use it)

    Cases don't get much better than a Pelican case. The dividers work great and are adjustable to a variety of shapes and sizes. The size is perfect for carry-on baggage. The handle and wheels are icing on the cake.

      This is 'THE' camera case! It is strong, sturdy and ALL of my valuable gear is safe. When a slot is empty, I instantly know that something has not been packed away. I am in the field with my clients and so having my gear safe AND accounted for is vital for my business. In fact, I bought TWO Pelican 1514's - one for my still camera gear and the other for my video gear. Love them!

      What have I got in mine?

      5D MkIII + battery grip
      D MkIV
      70-200, 24-70 (or 24-105), 16-35, 17 TS, EF 1.4, EF 2
      Lens hoods for all except for 17 TS
      2 x 600EX-RTs + a ST-E3-RT
      Battery chargers for 5D & D
      2 x spare batteries for 5D & 1x for D

      mini food container with 12 spare re-chargeables.

      I travel to most assignments and have managed to take in in-cabin without hassle. I have also stood on it on many occations because I am 5'9'' shrunk to 5'7.5" following bike accident!

      I could not recommend this enough - buying a second one soon for my expanding Olympus OMD EM1 kit

      I love this case. It's kinda small, but that's to be expected with an airline-sized carry on. Tough plastic. It has wheels.

        Nothing beats this case as a carry on luggage. Its awesome. However, please note the case alone is heavy and once you start putting gear inside, well you can easily reach 20 to 3o pounds. I hate checking my gear so I try to carry it with me at all times but no issues so far.

          This is an excellent choice to house all of your expensive gear. Don't hesitate to spend the money and just go for it. I went with desert tan because it looks good and also stays cooler in the summer than the black. It gets hot as h*** here in Houston,TX. You can bend the middle divider if necessary and manipulate it to fit a bigger body also.

          I use this case to house the following
          5D Mark 3 with Ziess 50mm attached
          Canon 24-105 Lens
          Sony PXW-X70 Camcorder with XLR handle and lens hood attached
          Watson Dual Charger with sony plate and canon plate. Also Cable
          Go Pro Hero 4
          Go Pro Hero 4 Dual Charger with 2 Batteries
          Maglite Mag-Tac LED Flashlight
          Western Digital 2TB 2.5" Hard Drive
          12000 mAH Power Block
          Pelican 2750 Headlamp
          Panasonic MIC150 Shotgun Microphone
          LED Pro Video light

            I bought this case based on previous Pelican products and found it to be on a par with their other tough products. The divider system is versatile and the configurations are endless. A little on the heavy side but you can't have tough without a little weight.

              I purchased this case for some travel, for the first time with my camera equipment, by air. I needed something the correct size to fit in an overhead bin and strong enough if I was directed that it be checked. It turned out that that happened on my return trip and there was no damage to anything packed in the case. Using the divider set, which has moveable partitions, everything was held in place beautifully so all of it was available to me when I got ho,e. Than you Pelican and B&H for this terrific product.
