You guys have some really nice transport methods. I have two cases, one a Pelican 1510 & the other a large Stormcase.

The problem I have is the larger one being overweight .... which means another $50 more in most flights. When traveling with a backpack & surfboard, I have no spare hands to carry anything else but those two cases.
Anyone have a solution to the added charges of overweight luggage .... short of leaving some gear I might need at home? :confused:

That's the problem with the Pelican case with dividers. Empty they are already over the weight limit...

They are great tools for traveling by ground transportation, but by air you'll pay the price.

Has anyone ever used the 1770 for light stands/tripods and monolights? I know it's kind of pricey ($305 empty) and used for for rifles...but I just wanted feedback on it.

I've never been charged for being over the weight when flying with my Pelican 1510's. I do try to spread the weight so they weigh evenly.

I'll be flying them again this month for trips to New Orleans and Las Vegas (taking my gear to WPPI and letting Canon CPS clean some of my gear for free)...

Pelican Padded Divider Color Change, what gives?!?!

Pelican Padded Divider Color Change, what gives?!?!

I am not a fan of the new black padded dividers... I liked mine with the mid-tone grey much better. With so many items being black or mostly black the mid-tone grey made objects stick out much easier.

I've always loved how Kata uses yellow fabric in the interior of their bags to help with things getting 'lost' inside. It might seem like a small thing but when I'm in a rush and I have six cases of gear the easier to spot the better. Usually this isn't a problem for me because I keep my cases pretty organized, but visually I find the mid-tone grey better.

you know it's a very basic cleaning right?
IE front and rear elements for a lens etc... :confused:

yeah, I've seen some shots with them in bright blue which I'd LOVE. Or red maybe?

You may like the looks, but wait until you have to find something in it in less than perfect light.

well, I'll agree black is better than gray, but I'd prefer some funky color to black so it's 1) not boring gray and 2) easy to find things.

That I do, I've had them do cleanings a few times before at different conventions. I usually have them do the camera bodies and then send my lenses in so they can also be calibrated. Still a free 'light' cleaning is better than no cleaning.

Different Strokes Indeed... I think they 'look' better than the boring grey... but I don't care how they look so much as how they 'work', for me when I'm moving fast or asking an assistant to find something and I'm short on time I don't want to make it any harder than it has to be...

Black on Black is like camera cammo making stuff hard to find... but like I said above I care how things work, not how they look.

yeah, just checking because I'd rather travel light and do the light stuff myself, then send it in for clean and calibration as needed. YMMV.

I learned the hard way. Bought a 1650 with padded inserts. Big enough to hold all of my gear plus tripod and most of my clothes for a weekend trip. Got to the airport - 61lbs. $90 charge. What!? This means $180 every time I use it??? On the way home I carried my camera gear onboard in my thinktank R20 and got the case down to $49.

1650 is for sale.
