Perfectly fits my D700 with multiple accessories. I filled the case with tissue paper and submerged it for few mintues to test and the interior stayed dry as advertised. The only thing I regret was not thinking before I started plucking out the foam. Initially I traced around my gear with a marker and then plucked the foam. had I placed my equipment upside down and then traced, I could have flipped the foam over when finished to hide the marks. Minor detail, but it might help anyone who reads this review. Also be sure if you plan to store anything in the case long term its very important to have some form of dessiccant in the case.

The case is perfect. Exactly as described. Creates a tight seal when closed and the foam on the inside is easy to work with. Would purchase again if needed.

Beast Box

Comments about 1450 Case with Foam (Orange):

This is the first pelican i have ever bought. The foam is great. The case is extremely durable. I actually dragged it from the back of my car from a bungee cord for about 5 miles after it fell off my roof rack. When I noticed it i pulled over and my sony a7sii and lenses were safe and secure. No complaints

    Great sturdy case! I was able to customize the foam to fit my Cinema lens and a few other items. Its small enough to fit in an overhead bin on a plane or under the seat.

      My second Pelican case, B&H was one of the few sites that had this color, and has the lowest price. Lovely case, Roughly twice as larger than the 1200 I have.

                This my second Pelican case. These cases are built to last a lifetime and provide the ultimate protection from internal and external bangs and moisture seepage. Shaping the foam to fit equipment is really simple and the end result gives a very professional appearance. Hard to imagine that I did without these cases for so long.

                        Rugged heavy duty case. I use it to protect my camera equipment when outdoors. Good size for one dslr body and a couple lenses plus small miscellaneous items .

                        This case is as advertised. The 1450 is just right to carry on a plane-the dementions are within airline specs to put under the seat. A full frame plus two other lens fit nicely, althought I have not tried the 150 to 600mm. A nice thing about the foam is that it has already been cut into 1/2 inch squares that can be easily removed so as to make a cavity for the equipment. ( I used a kitchen knife to loosen the segments)
                        The only negative about it is that the latches take some force to open or close. But it is reassuring to hear that snap knowing that it will stay closed. There is a place for a snap or small lock on either side of the front of the case.
                        The case is a little pricy, but so is the camera equipment which it will do a good job protecting.
                        I gave it a five even thought it is a little hard to close. A quick push with the palm of the hand seems to be the best way for me to close it.

                        Got this for my underwater housing camera equipment. This case is very sturdy. Very easy to pinch out the form for the equipment. Definitely recommend.
