After looking around at cases I'm thinking about getting this pelican case for college: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …_1660_Case_with​_Foam.html (external link)

It would probably stay in my dorm room the majority of the time and be used to transport all my gear whenever I come home (going to be all the way across the country). Also my gear list is going to get a lot larger once HS is over, going to splurge on a whole bunch of new gear (lenses and such), so that's why I'm looking at such a large case.

Good idea to get this?

Also, should I just keep all my equipment in one case or divide the film and digital equipment between two cases?

It would be a great idea, except how do you plan to transport it? this thing empty is close to the 50lbs that the airlines are willing to accept. I saw this other peli over here (external link) that looks like it would hold all your equipment and is a little smaller then the one you listed above and it also looks like it would fit in the trunk of a regular car

i have my eyes on the 1514 because i dont have as much gear as you do so i wont need such a large case


If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you!!

I totally didn't realize that. Guess that's what happens when I post late at night. Anyways, the link won't open on my iPhone but I'll look at smaller cases.

I have a 1660 (Although it's empty as I bought it used for something like $40 with torn up foam) and I'm wondering how you could fit it anywhere in a dorm room. I'm in the same dilemma myself, when I go to university..

The 1660 really isn't practical for carrying a lot of gear, just big gear. You really don't need something that deep for simple camera gear, as you won't be able to stack things and most of the volume will go unused.

I just bought the #1210 (the one that fits in the carry on bin). It's great, just big enough to carry one 5d body, 5 lenses and other crap. I got the padded inserts and lid carr all. Check it out, i'm very happy

Do you mean the 1510? I can't find a 1210?

Did you get the foam or the dividers?

im pretty sure he meant the 1510 too (actually the 1514 if it comes with the pads like he mentioned)
