I'm hoping the combined knowledge of the POTNers can help me out here :)
I'm going kayaking (for the first time) later this year, and would like to take the camera along. I'm wondering what would be the smallest Pelican case I could get away with that would hold a 1DmkIII with 100-400 mounted, possibly with room for another lens like a 24-105 (but that's not essential.)
I've read as many threads as I can but can't find a definitive answer... I was thinking of the Pelican 1450 or the similarly-sized Pelican-Storm iM2200. Does anyone have experience of these cases? Will they take a 1D + 100-400?

Thanks for any help :D

Yep, I saw that one, but couldn't tell if the bodies were gripped - i.e. whether or not a 1D would fit in the same layout...

Looking at my 1450: A gripped camera would not fit vertically.

Excellent info, thanks - I guess that rules the 1450 out :(

Does anyone else take a gripped body / 1D size body plus lens kayaking? If so, what do you keep it in? I'm guessing a dry bag is going to be my best bet, but from what I've read I believe these are a bit more awkward when you're on the water?
