That's what I use in my hard cases, including my theft resistant cases (old hard Samsonite suitcases). I cut the foam so items are firm in their holes.

    I'd space a bit further apart if I was shipping the gear.

    Make sure you use good quality foam. Nice thing is you can cut multiple foam inserts for various equipment systems.
    Good points. I'm out of town and don't have all my gear with me so I guess I'm gonna have to wait, but after the trek thru the airport recently I realized that a harder case and maybe one on wheels will be better.

    This forum is really neat. I personally use a digital and like to think I'm somewhat of an amateur photographer--I'm pretty good . I am also a member of a digital photography forum. (I wish I had a 35mm, though.) But, my mother LOVES her old 35mm that she used as a youngster. I will definitely refer her to this forum. I also would like to say that there is some incredible work here!! You guys rock!
    Thanks for the offer of help, and congrats on your first post! Now we need to find you a little film camera so you can start shooting some b&w alongside what you have now.

    I'm looking for a carry on case and the Pelican 1510 seems to be the one. I read somewhere, can't find it now, that the 1510 will go in the overhead and or fit under the seat. Is the under seat space really that large? The only colors I see them in is black and tan. Those who have the 1510 what is the largest camera and gear that you put in them? They do have weight so the gear adds up too, I couldn't find a weight limit for carry on and I suspect that it varies, has anyone had a problem with carry on weight?

    I don't think I have enough time to get one by the time I leave for Tonopah though.

    Thanks,
    Curt
