Love this case!!!!

Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Silver):

This case worked extremely well for my Sennheiser MKH8060 and its windscreen foam! Also for the little mount that it came with. I just simply took the foam that my mic came in, cut the foam of this case in half (no not vertically), and placed the foam my mic came with inside and it fit perfectly! Can't go wrong with this little case!

Very nice, sturdy case. The peel and pluck foam is very easy to use and customize to your liking.

Solid case, a bit on the small side but workable.

Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Orange):

It is a solid case. I wasn't sure what size exactly I'd need for my uses. I have a DSLR, the default 18-55mm lens, and a 50mm fixed lens. It all fits fine with a bit of spare room and is cushioned well enough. I use the camera for astrophotography and when I eventually pick up a 200mm fixed lens I'll have to go up a size or two in cases.

Even if you're looking to hold similar stuff as me now you'll probably want something slightly wider. I have no room between the fixed lens and the camera with it's attached lens. I would like a bit more space.

Overall it is a solid case, and sometimes I feel like I'm going to break a latch trying to get it opened. They don't feel like they will ever pop open on accident. The foam is a pain to pull apart but I figured that going into this purchase. I did have to line the hole I made for my camera body with some bits of foam laid flat so that there wasn't a huge gap between the top of the camera and the lid when it is shut. The foam rectangles work perfectly when laid on their side at the bottom. I just need to figure a way to make them stick without ruining the foam.

Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Black):

I use this for my GH4, ss cards and batteries. Was very easy to pop out foam to the shapes I needed. It's high. So there are two foam layers. Underneath I have the batteries ands charger and on top I have the camera.

Absolutely worth the price and more.

Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Black):

Bought this specifically for a motorcycle trip from Boston to Nova Scotia. The case fit my Nikon D800 with 24-70mm 2.8 attached perfectly. Standard reliability of a Pelican case--- waterproof, shock proof, rugged latches and handles. Would 100% recommend. Will be using it while kayaking and possibly while backpacking.

great case

Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Black):

I have been using my case to fit a canon 7d with a 24-70 f4 lens as well as a 50mm f1.4. This works great for me because even though the lenses are touching they do not move from within the case. I use the case mainly for its crush and waterproof capabilities and dont expect large impact forces. having the extra lense is worth the tradeoff. if you were to be using only the 24-70 lens this case will fit your camera very well with a little room to spare for accessories.

    Purchased for a lens and body to take in kayak, and on land.
    My Sigma 16-300 wit Sony A77ii, and vertical grip fits nicely, snug but not too tight.
    I have 3 other Pelican cases,all over 20 years old,still as good as ever.
    Pelican is a great product line.

      Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Black):

      I got this case for my Canon EOS Rebel SL1; it is nearly a perfect fit. I could stand on this case in the pouring rain and have no fear that the contents will be harmed. I will not test this intentionally, but I could probably drop this case and find my camera unharmed inside. I consider a Pelican case to be an investment in the longevity of my equipment.

      Perfect for small system protection

      By Colorado Leica

      from Littleton, CO

      Comments about 1300 Case with Foam (Yellow):

      This case is ideal for transporting a camera and an extra lens, with room left over for accessories. Depending on the camera, you can even get three un-mounted lenses and two bodies in it comfortably. I remove the center foam, and the camera and lens stay in small neoprene pouches, which gives them and extra margin of cushioning, with plenty of room around them for film or accessories (see photo). Don't forget to include a desiccant package to keep moisture out, especially if you working in a marine environment (the desiccant in the plastic case, which makes it easy to recharge in a microwave is the best; B&H sells it). This is my third Pelican case; keep the seal and the mating edge of the case clean, replace the seal every few years, and your case will provide years of protection.

      This box fit my Sony a6000 with 18-200mm lens, 16mm +UWA+fisheye, 4 batteries, and memory cards. I could get creative and add another layer for charger. Easier access than the Watershed bag I have been using for river trips. The increased bulk and 1.5lb weight are worth it when I come back with more photos.

        Using the 1300 for my canon G7X, batteries, charger and underwater housing. It was very easy to form the two layers of foam to fit my equipment. The 3rd,thinner layer stays on bottom but can be removed.

          Durable and easily customizable. Great for transporting backup hard drives off site. Enough room for 2 ATA drives to have plenty of padding and probably enough for a third. I would probably get non static foam if using it for hard drives.

              You just can't go wrong with Pelican cases. Consistent quality, durability, and great design in so many shapes and sizes. This one is great for my field monitor and several batteries, chargers, cables, etc. And the orange color is very easy to spot on a shoot - indoors or out.

                    this case is awesome. i feel safe taking my camera around! thats what i use it for but you could use it for anything. all you have to do is remove some foam pieces from inside the case to match the shape of whatever your conceiling in the box. the box also fits perfectly in a backpack. i purchased the olive drab color and i like it... instagram @trillionairvisions
