    Hey all,

    I need a case that will hold a lot of gear at a somewhat reasonable price.

    The case needs to hold at least:

    A tlr
    A 5X7 camera
    1 slr
    various lens'
    accesories (flash, lightmeter, filters, and of course Film!)

    I like the pelican cases with the foam which can be customized. If anyone knows a good model big enough to hold all of this gear... please tell me. It needs to be portable.

    Thanks Alot!
    -James.

    If you REALLY need to carry all that gear all the time, then a Pelican could well be what you need. But maybe you could make do with one or two smaller cases to take what you need for each situation.

    Kevin,
    I don't need to carry it all at once. I would really like to just have a good storage case. I am working on the 5x7 so that isn't really even ready to go anywhere. Are there compact cases made for 5x7 cameras? For tlr's? BTW, I'm in NY. I have my original everready case for the tlr and the original case for the 5x7 but the 5x7 case is old and brittle and the tlr case is not nearly strong enough/ it really provides no protection.

    Also, david b, I can't get over that image that is your avatar/ on your website. Great composition.

    Update your profile.

    Also, I have a large, hard case with wheels made by Portercase. It would carry everything you mention. And yes it's for sale.

    David, Can you PM me with the information/link I can't seem to find the case if it's in the classifieds.
