Just In Case
Saturday 5 March 2011   —   Category: Equipment
My new Sony Alpha α55 camera and collection of lenses definitely need a case to call home ... just in case! And not just any case, but unquestionably, a HARD case!

After much searching the Internet, and reading quite a number of reviews, I finally settled on the Pelican 1514 case (which is their 1510 with padded dividers). It has a lot of great features, including:
  • FAA maximum carry on size
  • Retractable extension handle
  • Strong polyurethane wheels with stainless steel bearings
  • Easy open, double throw latches
  • Lid with O-ring seal
  • Automatic pressure-equalization valve
  • Comfortable rubber over-molded top and side handles
  • Stainless steel hardware and padlock protectors
  • Adjustable padded dividers
  • Lifetime guarantee of excellence
  • Watertight, crushproof, and dust proof
Wow! What a case! After trying various configurations, I've finally settled on a way to arrange all of my equipment, with a bit of room left over for any future additions. After investing so much money in a great camera system, it sure feels good to store it all in a strong, protective case ... just in case!
