Carry-On Camera Case

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)

    I use this case for travel. It fits in the overhead compartment and it is gives me the assurance my gear won't be crushed, squeezed, or mangled when others put their luggage in the overhead.The dividers are adjustable and stay in place and also stick to the bottom and sides of the case.

            We use this case to carry our audio equipment for productions. It's great because we can keep all categories (adaptors, mics, headphones, field recorder, etc) separated and organized to keep workflow much smoother and quicker. Plus it provides great protection for our equipment to last longer!

                    I use this pelican case to carry my main gear from location to location. Inlcuding, my camera body, lenses, field recorder, lavs, and shotgun mic.

                    Its a little bit on the heavy side when its fully loaded but not too bad. Its very durable. Would buy again in a heartbeat.

                    Though I have not used it yet, the case seems to be of great quality. I chose the dividers because of other complaints of foam deteriorating over time. I also have flexibility in changing equipment, with the added bonus of still packing a few clothing items when traveling. This also gives a little added interior shock protection to the equipment inside the the case.

                      Don't underestimate the capacity of this article. It's a just perfect peace for most of us. I personally use a 1510 model for my cameras and lenses yet the model 1510SC to collect my extra accessories.

                      In this picture you can see how I was able to fit:
                      3 cameras, 2 flashes, 5 lenses, microphones, 1 iPod, 1 laptop surface + cables, 7 chargers, tons of batteries, 2 grips, cables, filters, straps and much more...

                      Go for.
                      I love it

                      This is an ideal carry on for protecting fragile china ornaments that I often transport from location to location. It looks a little clunky, but is strong and does what I need it for. Expensive but you get what you pay for.

                      I purchasd this case because I travel a lot and wanted my growing collection of equipment to be safe and compact. Right now I have it configured to fit 3 lenses, 2 camera bodies, a polaroid camera, film for the polariod, a golliropod, plus sd cards, extra batteries, filters, and other odds and ends. It os great cause it is small enough to fit in my car or the over head compartment on a plane. This is my new favorite way to store and travel with all of my equipment!

                      Being in business for 5 years, it has been a blast....up until the transport of our precious equipment comes into play. Through the 5 years we've experienced many incredible bags from shoulder slings like the InCase DSLR Sling pack, to the LowePro 180aw, a smaller lowepro & even the awful Canon backpack. Lowepro has been for the last 2 years my SAVIOR until now.This 1510 is incredible, it fits so much and the best features are the durable wheels and finish of the unit. Being a travel photographer as well it helps to know that this would be able to fit in an overhead compartment without any hassle. HUGE PLUS! It is nice to know that so much design has been crammed into such a small package to help videographers and photographers across the world for such a small price.I would HIGHLY recommend this for any travel photographer, studio photographer & wedding photographer.Equipment fit into this unit:5d Mark III5d Mark IICanon 70-200mm F2.8 IS IICanon 85mm F1.8Canon 50mm F1.2Canon 16-26mm F2.82x Canon 600ex-rtBolt Cyclone Battery Pack1 Card case holder(dimensions 1x2x3)2x MagMod units w/ modifiers

                        Been a year now since i purchased the Pelican 1510 hard case with padded dividers..
                        Im a professional weddings,Sports and Travel photographer based in South Pacific, travelling to locations by sea, air and land in different weather situations, not once has this case let me down, i've stood on it to get those shots,used it to sit on, while waiting in airports,Mariners,bus stations etc, carried it through pouring rain, sandy beaches, jungles and it still keeps up..look forward to the many more years with this Pelican 1510..Purchasing another 1 or 2 soon.

                          This case is durable, protects my equipment and keeps the elements out.

                          This is my second 1510 (1514) case from Pelican. For my money, there is no better protection for your valuables.

                          Here are the pros. Solid construction, quality materials, dividers and foam (I have both versions) are great, lifetime warranty, water and dust tight. I shoot frequently at a reception location where the wedding party is taken from the ceremony area to the reception by boat. I have always been uneasy about this part of my job because of the water danger. It sure is nice to know I can stuff my camera into the Pelican if the boat decides to take us for a swim. Maybe i'm paranoid but it's a little less stressful knowing the gear (and their ceremony images) are protected.

                          The cons. Smaller than expected, wheels are awful on small pea sized stones. I wish the wheels were more like roller blade wheels. Loud latches don't bother me but beware. Organizer is an after thought for this company. On the bottom of the organizer, the screw holes are located inside of a pocket so it is very difficult to screw the organizer in without ripping the organizer's mesh like pockets. Handle feels flimsy but will probably never break. If it does Pelican will replace it.

                          Recommendations: Lid organizer if you are using this for camera gear with accessories.

                          I can fit 2 5DII''s and the following lenses in one 1510 and it's TIGHT. 24-105, 70-200 (horizontal), 100mm, 50mm. 3 CF card cases, and backup hard drive. Accessories like pocket wizards, batteries, cables, etc go in the organizer.

                          My summary is this is a great case as long as you are aware of it's limitations. Great carry on bag for any flight. Get two, if you are like me, you will need them.

                            What can I say, it's a Pelican Case and that should be the end of the review. I purchased this and later got the organizer as well which works with what I need. I'm able to fit three lenses: L 16-35mm, L 24-105mm kit lens, L 50mm, 600EX-RT, Canon 5d MKIII body, Vello Grip, Mini Tripod, a pair of Trigmaster Plus II's, and a bunch of small accessories as well as three 12 inch reflectors. It's well worth the investment, and my only complaint would be the design of the organizer which can be purchased separately that's not easily installed. That won't stop me from buying a second case and a second organizer though, I'll buy Pelican products until I can't but them any more.
