check out this link... i'm pretty sure it not going to be sealing out the moisture but a couple dry pack in the case should do the trick for camera storage.

the case is available at harbor freight for $24.99 (external link)

this might be fun little project to do at home. after selling all of my unused cam bags to fund for the KATA 3n1-25PL, i need something to keep my 30D and some accessories in.

I had two aluminum cases like that I purchases at Lowes. They had the foam inside that is cut into squares so you can make any shape you want, I used them for my pistols.
Similar to this:

These are not nice cases and in the only way they even remotely resemble a Pelican is that they are cases.

Dude, I think the point is that they cost $20, not $200.

Dude,They are junk. That is my point.

I am not the one who started comparing them to a Pelican Case.

You can get a Pelican 1500 for well under $100.00 too.

I have one of these for carrying a bunch of pocketwizard stuff. They should not even be mentioned in the same sentence as a Pelican case. They are cheap crap, nothing more. Cheap china made crap no less. It's funny because it comes with keys but there's nothing in the locks that actually works - so the keys are worthless. It's basically a ripoff of a Husky product.

But for smaller things it's not bad. No way would I put my camera and lenses in it.

Also you should let it air out for a few days after using it - the smell is horrible and probably not good for you.
