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)

        This pelican case is one of the most amazing cases. My gear is all organized neatly, protected, and all kept in the same place thanks to this wonderful tool! I feel comfortable lugging this beast around with me and I am not afraid of the fragile goods inside of being damaged. I highly recommend this case for a beginner photographer or videographer looking for a smaller size case that they can use for all their equipment.

              I bought the Pelican 1514 case to transport portable Ham Radio equipment safely (Elecraft KX3 transceiver and accessories). The size is just about perfect to hold the rig plus batteries, charger, portable antennas, antenna analyzer, coax cable, headphones, keyer. I also purchased the Pelican 1519 lid organizer, which works great for stowing the various cables and connectors. This gives me a 'grab and go' portable station I can use while traveling.

                It's solid, it's hard, it guarantees that your equipment will be safe. Besides the camera, you can store cables, lenses, filters, hard drives... you name it! Traveling will be easier because of the wheels!

                The only con, it's a little heavy, but with all the pros, this is not a problem ;)

                  Perfect for carrying on commerical aircraft. Often when flying some smaller communters, they ask that you check carry ons at the door. With this Pelcian case--I have no problem doing so. Even if they are less than gentle with this case, I am confident that even if they drop it, my gear will be safe. I keep two full size dslr's, three lenees, including a 100-400 with 1.4 extender attached, one speed light, and other small miscellaneous items in this case. Botton line, it's rugged, capacious for its size and lifetime guarantee. I'd buy it again.

                        This tough Pelican case is excellent for the amount of gear I have and currently use, plus if I fly anywhere it should fit in the over head compartment.. To give you an idea of its capacity... I have 2 DSLR's, transmitter, 2-3 flashes, 3 lenses, 2 battery grips and various accessories. For the accessories I bought a divider that is attached to the inside of the lid. I may out grow it capacity wise within a couple years but it's lighter than my colleagues Pelican case for now :D The real test will be the first time I get to fly with the case...

                              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!

                                This is a great case all the way around. Perfect if you're traveling and need a hard protective case that you won't have to worry about. Great job B&H on the shipping as well. 5 stars

                                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

                                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.
