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.

well, how much of that was an overweight fee -vs- just the checked fee? Sounds like $40? And that to not touch/carry your gear each way is close to right, UPS would charge more and it'd take a week.... ;)

but yeah, get a 1510 and carry on your photo gear and check only your clothes and tripod.

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.

They do a better job than I can or care to do... and I'll already have my gear as I'll be flying into Vegas from New Orleans where I'll be shooting, so I'll already have my junk on me. They have also done some triage on some damaged gear I had that was way beyond the normal cleaning...

Yeah buying one big case is a giant fail for most folks. Even if you don't fly a ton they can get hella heavy to lug to/from shoots around town. I only roll my bigger guy when I'm doing a fixed location shoot and need a good bit of gear. But if I'm traveling by air or will be on the move I prefer breaking the load into multiple 1514's, or if if I need to be extra light weight (like the multi-week europe trip I took this last year) I roll my Kata Bumblebee 222 which I used to carry my camera and computer gear... the Kata was clutch and worked perfectly and still was small enough to be carried on even international flights.

Here's my 1624 (1620 with padded inserts). I don't fly much.

That $90 was the excess fee, if I remember correctly - above what I had already paid. Crazy.

I wish my 1624 had come with black dividers! I bought mine a while ago and it came with light grey.

Would you know if they'd be able to do a sensor cleaning and shutter count for a 1DIII?

Looks like a 1510 to me. BTW, that helmet light velcro'd to the top is a great idea! Might have to put that one in too.

Nice looking case, any idea where I can get those plastic cases you use to store your AA rechargeables? I need some of those, thanks!

I just did a web search and ordered them from a place that appeared on the more reputable end of the scale. They were mailed from Hong Kong.
