8 reviews for Pelican 1510 Case With Foam (Black)

    Deceivingly spacious – perfect for camera gearFirst off, I should mention that I bought this case specifically for photography gear. I’m a wedding/event photographer and need to transport my gear to/from locations and wanted something a bit more durable and easier to work out of. My goal was to be able to put my more expensive primary items in this case, while still using my backpack for outdoor (mobile) shooting.When I first unboxed the case, I thought I was going to have to buy a larger one. I was pleasantly surprised with how much gear I was able to fit after spending a morning carefully breaking away the pre-cut cube foam. Keep this in mind. You will need to sit yourself down for several hours carefully shaping the foam. I found it quite enjoyable despite the fact that I watched Manchester United lose (again) while doing this. Just take your time and try to leave about 2 layers of foam between the heavier items.FYI: Inspect the foam grid before you start breaking out the pieces you don’t need! There is a seam that runs along the middle in the horizontal and vertical directions that is slightly wider than the pre-cut squares. It’s hard to explain, but you’ll notice it if you just take one close look. I would suggest you try to leave these 2 seams untouched as they will give the foam a tiny bit more rigidity.For reference, here’s the gear that I’m storing in this case:- Canon 1D-series body (w/ eyepiece extender and an Arca Swiss plate plus CustomSLR C-loop on bottom)- Canon 6D body (w/ eyepiece extender and CustomSLR C-loop on bottom)- 24-70mm 2.8L lens w/ hood attached- 135mm 2.0L lens w/ hood attached- 16-35mm f/2.8L *without the hood* or 35mm f/1.4L lens- 3 Canon Speedlites (more on this below)***- Some slots plucked out for smaller items (16 AA batteries, extra 1D battery, extra 6D battery, 6D charger, 3 Speedlite shoes, 8 card SD card holder.I work out of this case when I’m on location. If I’m going to go mobile, I’ll pick out what I need and throw it in my backpack.***Note retarding Speedlites: I have 600EX’s. This case is about 1/4″ too shallow to place them vertically. If you could, there would be even more space for gear. I have 2 of the flashes laying on top of each other and the 3rd is placed in a slot where the head is tilted in the 90-degree position. If you have 580EX (or something other) check the length. If they are at least 1/4 inch shorter when the head is pointed directly up, this case will hold a bit more gear.After thinking about the purchase of this specific case a bit more, I will likely buy a second identical one so I have a place for the rest of my photography related gear (brackets, extra card holders, 70-200 f2.8L IS lens, 1D series body charger (which is big), AA chargers, etc.)I’m not going to question the durability of any Pelican case. I have 2 others that I’ve been using for many years and they are as close to indestructible as you can get. It’s a very safe purchase that will last a very long time. Keep in mind that these cases hold their value should you decide to sell it a year or 3 down the road.I’ll snap a photo of my layout and upload it here ASAP.

    Best system for all my camera gear!The Pelican 1510 is the perfect case to fit all of my gear. I originally purchased it with the foam inserts, but realized quickly that wasn’t going to get close to fitting all my gear. So I decided to get the mesh lid organizer and the TrekPak divider. That turned a pretty nice case that fits a good amount into an AWESOME case that fits a TON!In the dividers I’m able to easily fit all of the following with room to spare:1 x Canon 7D body1 x Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro (Canon lens)1 x Sigma 50mm f/1.4 (Canon lens)1 x Sigma 30mm f/1.4 (Canon lens)1 x Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 lens1 x Canon 70-200mm f/4L lens2 x Canon 580 EXII Speedlites flashes1 x Sony a6000 body1 x Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens1 x Sony 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 lens1 x Rokinon 12mm f/2 (Sony lens)1 x JOBY GorillaPodNote: there are a few things that are double-stacked… but it works perfectly that way. Underneath the 70-200 lens I’ve got a layer of the TrekPak divider and then one of my two Canon Speedlites. Same goes for underneath the GorillaPod… I’ve got a layer of the TrekPak divider and then the other Canon Speedlite. The Rokinon 12mm and the Sony 16-50mm are both so small they easily fit in the same compartment with a layer of foam dividing the two.So 2 camera bodies, 8 lenses, 2 flashes and a flexible tripod in the main compartment and all of the flash triggers, cables, filters, batteries, memory cards and everything else you could possibly want/need in the lid organizer. The Pelican 1510 with the mesh lid organizer and the TrekPak divider system is an outstanding way to compactly fit as much gear as possible into a small carry-on size bundle. Oh it’s heavy with all that gear… but that’s what the wheels are for. =) If off the beaten path… the Pelican’s padded side handle is comfortable to carry the load.

  3. Thats What She Said

    From Your Short Wedding Photog..As a female wedding and portrait photographer, a lot of people told me this would be too heavy for me, especially once all the gear was in. I figured, I already am carrying all that gear in three different bags (inefficient!) and it can’t get that much heavier in a Pelican. I’m beyond glad I did this. I am so RELIEVED of the weight from carrying three bags that couldn’t be rolled, but had to be carried over my shoulders or back ALL day long. I’ve rolled this sucker on grass, on hills, pebbles (okay, had to eventually carry it over that, but that’s ok!), and this little beauty just rolls right along. I love it so much. I’m also short, so standing on it for when I forget a chair or stool is perfect. This is my new assistant.

    NOT a Carry On!I brought 3 and had to return them.Their length is more than 55cm so it won’t be accepted by Air France and Air Canada as a carry on.Bought instead Explorer Cases Medium Hard IATA Case 5221.

    Built like a tankThe case itself is amazing! It is a literal tank. If you want to safe guard your equipment whether for long term storage or transport you cannot go wrong. It is heavy and after you put your equipment inside, it is very heavy, but you don’t get this case for its weight. I got the pluck your own foam kit and it works pretty well. The pluck your own foam is however very final, measure twice and pluck once.

    Not sure .I’ve worked around these cases but never had one for my own gear.So I’m not 100% sure if it’s supposed to be like this or not .But when you are opening the lid it jams half way and you have to force it open …Not sure if I got a broken case or if that’s the design.The wheels are cool , but feel kinda flimsy.It’s kinda cool . Just not sure if I got a broken one delivered to me or if they are all like this .

    Solid case.This is a great case, I will be using it to hold tools for Aircraft Maintenance when required to travel with or to the Aircraft. Many Co-workers use the same case. Only issue with the case so far is the “low profile” wheels and the noise they make. I will be changing out the wheels for some quieter roller blade wheels. Another issue I had is with NOT the Pelican case, it was shipped to my apartment and left at the front door when nobody was home, anyone could have walked by and taken the parcel. Was not impressed and was lucky it didn’t go missing.

    Great Solid Built CaseA really solid case that will stand anything you put it up against. I was initially toying between this 1510 model and the 1535 Air Model, both in black. However, when I saw this tan model for $80 less I scooped it up. I actually like the tan a lot more than I thought I would now that got it sorted and used it. The only gripe I have is that once it is full with all my gear, it is a bit heavy for long carries. But – it does have those convenient wheels to help out.I am flying with it for the first time this weekend – and in the event, I am asked to check it at the gate, I would have no worries about the safety of my gear. Part of me wishes I had purchased a slightly larger one, just to fit a bit more gear – but the ability to use it as a carry-on is certainly preferred.
