What divider set would I need for a 1500 case? I want to replace the foam in mine.

1505 is the divder set for the 1500. I am thinking about getting it instead of using the foam. Much more versatile. Looks like B&H is probably the best price.


6D, 5D, 7D, Eos R and too many lenses, flashes and aux. gear to list!:cool:

good idea with the gaps to actually grab the items....wish i had thought of that

Yeah, just noticed that I had problems removing the heavy battery so I that's where I started it :)
In retrospect, I f'ed up and really should have made space for two batteries vertically, so i can remove the battery in the pack for flights.

What size do you guys think would be best to hold a 5D/grip, 17-40L, 50L, 135L, VML and B800? Plus other bits of this and that but that's most of it. I was hoping the 1500 with the padded dividers might work but I'm not sure. Weight isn't too much of an issue. Using it mostly to organize all my stuff so it's not just all free floating about the car when I travel.

You actually might be able to fit all that in a 1514. The only thing Im hesitant on is the B800. But if its no taller than a gripped body it should be able to fit in there.

I think it's about the same as a gripped body. If I ever get more bees I'll get another case dedicated to just lighting but this should work for now

Thanks! They definitely seem to be easier to work with. Taking the foam in and out is a pain the arse. Hopefully everything will still be as snug with the dividers instead of the foam that comes standard.

I'm going to have to get one of these bad boys for college, but I have a couple questions first if you guys could answer them.

1. Are the interior dimensions that B&H lists the real dimensions or do they not include the divider basin and what not? In other words, if a case is listed with an interior height of 7 inches, can I really fit a 7 inch lens in vertically?

2. How do you guys feel about checking them as luggage on a plane versus shipping them?

Thanks

No worries :)

Hmm, Ive never owned one of the Storm cases, but I have played with one a few times and they do feel strong. I like how nicely the four lights fit in there.

They are strong. They are Pelicans lighter brand that still have a full life time warranty. I have used the blue one one two international trips and it got beat up but still OK for me to jump on it :lol:.

There is only 3 in the case. I have to move the three over to make room for the fourth, but decided against that. I know I am going to get more strobes so I am just going to get another case.

Current layout of my peli 1510. Left side is wheel side, so the heavy tele is at the bottom while rolling.

Can I play :D Here's my brand new 1614. Wheel it back from B&H :D I'm going to use it as my storage case. Before I was using 3 different camera bags to store stuff. Hated it! Now I'm organized :D
