There are plenty of choices. Ammo cans are a great option, but after years of Geocaching, I've even seen those fail sometimes. My suggestion, if you want to bury it and keep the moisture from damaging the contents would be different chambers. Basically put a box in a bigger box. If you want to keep it small, get an ammo can and a Lock & Lock or Pelican case that will fit inside the ammo can. Put your treasure into the small box and stick that into the ammo can. For best assurance, I'd actually suspend the smaller box inside the ammo can with some expanding foam. If you want to go bigger, suspend the ammo can in a 5 gallon bucket with a lid secured on it (also with foam).

A common mistake that people make in Geocaching is to put the contents of the cache (specifically the log book) inside a cheap plastic bag. After moisture gets to the log, and inside the bag, it takes forever for it to leave. If you put a smaller box inside a larger box with foam all around, moisture will not be able to get to the treasure inside.

Congrats on the job!

[Tiffen Variable ND filter] ( is a necessity to me, especially when outside.

This shoulder rig is really an impressive tool for the price.

Husky Multi-tool is my favorite multi-tool

A good tripod like Davis & Sanford model is probably one of the best purchases I've ever made (it's great as-is, and is even better when you upgrade the fluid head to a Manfrotto Video Head).

Pelican SD Card case not only provides protection, but also helps you keep organized.

Pelican 1510 with Padded Divider Case has been my main camera case for well over a year, and has saved my life on multiple occasions (downpours, falling down stairs, etc). I use the top organizer on it as well quite a bit.

This Apurture light is a great run-n-gun LED light that i prefer over costlier alternatives.

Joby Gorillapod is always in my camera bag for random uses. I use it mainly for a makeshift hair light mount, but I've gone as far as mounting my b-cam on it for timelapses.

Merrell Moab Waterproof Shoes are the best shooting shoes I've ever worn.

This Foldable Cart is incredible for me... I never go to a shoot without it. It folds up and fits in my small jeep along with the rest of my gear without an issue, and it gives me a workbench when deployed on location.

A watch with a compass is very important to me if I'm doing exteriors and have no idea where the sun is at due to cloud cover.

Anyway those are some odds and ends I could think of that I use on a day to day basis.

u/eggcouncil1 · 24 pointsr/photography

I can't speak from personal experience, but you can fit a bunch of gear into a Pelican 1510 carry-on case. The 400mm 2.8 would probably warrant its own case :). There are tons of articles on the web about traveling with camera gear.

u/SuitSage · 18 pointsr/DnD

It's this case with this foam in it.

They're designed so you can use that case to store different shaped valuables. The way that works is that the foam is actually a bunch of 3/8" x 3/8" squares that extend down which are easy to pull out to remove. I removed the corresponding squares (well, about half or 2/3rds of the way down or else the cubes would fall down too far). Then I just ransacked my copy of Love Letter & Heat for the small red cubes. I also taped on a piece of paper with the sorcerer table (for reference). This is actually pretty crucial since otherwise the cubes could fall out into the lid of the case between sessions.

The intention is that you would on a long rest, place cubes into the spell slots that you have available. Then every time you cast a spell slot, remove the cube and put it into the larger hole underneath. The sorcery points would ideally have a better token to track, but I just used mini d6s which would function similarly (on spending, move them to the large hole). There's even a spot in the bottom right where you could put a mini I think.

u/johnny5ive · 17 pointsr/photography

Lowepro Fastpack 350.

Holds my D7100, 3 lenses, RX100M2, laptop, and the usual extras (chargers, gorillapod, straps, rocketblower, etc...) Comfortable to wear too!.

u/funbob · 16 pointsr/amateurradio
u/nlabelle · 13 pointsr/photography

I have the nice and cheap AmazonBasics Sling Backpack for SLR Cameras. It is a nice and cheap $20. I am able to fit my camera, 70-200mm, 30mm, 16-70mm in the main compartment. If I don't mind it being crowded I can also fit 50mm and 135mm w/ adapter. Then in the side compartment I can fit the usual amount of accessories. The padding is fine, I do wish it had a bigger side compartment, which itself was more compartmentalized. My only complaint with it is the slinging part isn't as good as I thought but that could be because I don't everything set up right inside the bag.

u/UpsidedownTreetrunk · 11 pointsr/Frugal

Can't tell if you're serious, but I'll answer anyway.

Pelican is the brand. They make tons of cases used in a ton of ways. I have one to store my photography gear (one of their major markets). The military uses them a ton. Pelican also makes cases for rifles.

The cases come with foam (cut to your own specifications), padded dividers (I use them, pretty good), or empty.

The cases have a lifetime warranty. I don't quite know what OP means (the O-ring seal? IIRC that's not covered, but whatever), but I wouldn't doubt Pelican would replace it. Literally, the papers I got with the case said it'll cover anything except for shark attacks and children under 5. The warranty is the case only, not for the contents.

Here's the carry on size case with padded dividers. I have this, and I love it to bits. (I paid I think $50 less for it, purchased via Amazon.)

Here is their official site. You can see their full product line and read (obviously only absolutely amazing) reviews.

u/buckyboo22 · 10 pointsr/gundeals

Options if you're looking for a case to carry a gun in checked luggage:

u/Logical_Phallusy · 8 pointsr/photography

You should be able to, and one goes above you in the bin. Personally I use the Pelican 1510 which is within FAA regs for carry-ons. In it I can fit 2 Alienbees B400, the battery pack, four lenses, and I just carry my camera body in my backpack which I put under the seat. By the way, your title cracked me up because I read it in Sean Connery's voice.

u/bondjaybond · 7 pointsr/Filmmakers

I recently picked up almost everything on this list so I can give you an honest opinion and I'm a vfx artist trying to get out there and shoot my own content.

The fisheye....we never use it. We shot a prom and that was the only time we used it, and that was for b-roll because the kids loved it.

Definitely pick up the Sigma 30mm f/1.4. It's such a great lens! I almost use if for everything I do, but it's also good to have a wide angle lens. I currently use one of my buddy's which is a Canon 17mm-85mm.

Nodal Ninja I haven't seen before, but looks great.

Video tripod is good, I use a Manfrotto 502 but it's way more expensive, so this looks like a decent alternative. Also, the quick release plates are awesome. You'll eventually want to pick up tonnes of these. I used 2 yesterday to put on both the bottom of my new slider, as well as the top. I have one on my cage as well.

You can probably do without the Shoulder Rig for now. You may consider using the Kamerar Tank 2 cage with rail system to hook up the Kamerar Follow Focus. I found that once I got my Tank, I just disassembled the shoulder rig and never used it since. The Glidecam is something that I've been considering as my next purchase. Check out my thread asking about the glidecam.

Definitely grab the NTG-2 and possibly a Zoom H4N. The sound quality is fantastic. You need an XLR cable, windshield, boompole, and a shock mount.

Kamerar's Follow Focus is solid. It gets a little cramped using a smaller lens, the follow focus, and a matte box though. You have to tinker with teeth to learn how you need to set it up properly so that the teeth don't slip.

The Matte Box, while nice to look at, hasn't proven it's worth to me. I shoot with the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 and because the lens is so short, the matte box does very little to block out light. I just got the new "donut" in the mail yesterday so maybe that will help, but I wouldn't advise getting it when you can spend that money on something else.

And the backpack is pretty awesome, definitely worth picking up. If you travel to shoots I would recommend the Pelican 1510 to store all your stuff in.

I would also recommend grabbing a couple LED lights and the batteries and charger. These things are a life saver. I'll be picking up a third this week.

I hope this helped you out a bit. Like I said I was in a similar situation to you a couple months ago, but everything's coming together now. If you have any more specific questions about any of this, let me know. Take care.

u/david57strat · 7 pointsr/flashlight

Over the past five years, the Pelican 1010 case has remained my go to battery case - even for traveling. Water proof, dust proof, shock proof, with a one-way air purge valve.

I use them for 18650s, 26650s, 16340s, ad 14500s.

Superb cases for the money

Here's the direct link to Pelican's site.

Here is a Pelican distributor.

u/sfiodsh · 6 pointsr/smashbros

Pelican cases have to be some of the most durable things ever. It is as if Nintendo gave them a big supply of Nintendium.

But seriously, these things are amazing for keeping your stuff safe. It looks like OP used a 1200, , which is a really nice size. You can store it in your bag and not worry about your controller getting torked.

u/23458357234839742389 · 6 pointsr/Tools

I own one of these myself, and smile everytime I get to use it. I love so much about it. My favorite parts are the quick response when shorting the leads checking continuity, great display, data logging graph capabilities, and the visual continuity indicator. So much more too.

I paid full price for mine. Meter, case, AC amp clamp, and thermocouple ran me $800. You REALLY got a great price.

It may be big, but I have smaller meters for handheld operation if need be. Definitely buy the strap to hang it when using.

I bought this Pelican case for mine. You can get it with foam and pick removable pieces out to fit the meter and accessories. In mine, I have the meter, leads, lead adapters, thermocouple, and AC amp clamp.

Edit: Here's two pictures of my case setup

u/arbarnes · 6 pointsr/wicked_edge

A 3-piece razor is liable to break if you travel with it assembled. The guard you link will protect the blade, but won't do anything to keep the head of the razor from snapping off.

You've got three good options. Keep an extra razor at your girlfriend's, disassemble the razor whenever you travel, or put it in a hard case that will protect it from breakage (preferably with cut-outs that keep the razor from shifting around). Something like the Pelican 1010 can hold a razor, a small brush, and a shave stick.

u/ParkaBoi · 6 pointsr/Nikon

In your position I'd keep the 18-55 until you get a replacement. The 35mm has the same field of view as 52.5 lens on an FF body so you won't have anything at the wide end and there is not a lot of money to be made selling kit lenses, so keep it for the moment.

I have an Amazon Basics sling backpack that I'm very happy with. It's nice and light, can easily take a body, two lenses and other bits and bobs (battery, filters, etc.) and it's really well padded. Good price too.

u/beliall95 · 6 pointsr/legendarymarvel

This is what my legendary storage solution looks like

This is what I used. If you want ALL expansions you will need another. Unless you put the cards in vertical. I bought used dividers off board game geek and printed them at office max. Beware. Sometimes OfficeMax doesn't let you print them. Go in in person. Or try a different day/store.

u/jsdeprey · 5 pointsr/OculusQuest

I am ok right now with the below option

It is a camera bag, that gives me more space and also a singe shoulder strap which it the main thing I like about it.

I am using the official case inside the camera bag, that keeps the headset and controllers in there nice and safe also.
That camera bag was 25$ so that makes it kind of expensive when you add it to the official case, but it works really well for me.

u/qupada42 · 5 pointsr/sysadmin

With only three sites it's probably still easier to have the tools on hand; I'd suggest buying a couple of Pelican cases and some padlocks. Leave a set of tools at sites two and three that you know no-one will have gotten into in your absence.

A 1400 (~12x9x5" interior) would hold about all of the things you've described.

u/AmbiguouslyPrecise · 5 pointsr/photography

Sounds like you're looking for a pelican case.

u/fluffy_butternut · 5 pointsr/guns

Recently traveled on American with firearm for the first time. They did make me open the case on each leg of the trip to put the signed acknowledgement in.

Also used pelican case the "carry on sized" one and Abus locks.

In the Omaha airport they just tossed the case on the carousel with all the other luggage. The other airports were better at following policy.

I estimate it added 15 minutes to each departure and arrival. Was mostly amazed at how easy it was.

u/W45N7M38R0 · 5 pointsr/Tools
u/iHaveADD · 5 pointsr/Watchexchange

No offense OP, but I just bought a Pelican 1120 case from Amazon for $24, and it holds 4 watches after cutting out the foam. It is also crush proof and watertight.

They sell smaller sizes for cheaper prices too ($17.49):

u/theangriestbird · 5 pointsr/vaporents
u/hermit-the-frog · 5 pointsr/M43

I use this Ape Case that sits in the bottom of my backpack. It's basically a padded insert you can use with any bag.

The one I have is the perfect size for a M43 camera and 2 small lenses. Or for a larger camera and 1 lens. Or just the new 25mm f/1.2.

u/GIS-Rockstar · 5 pointsr/photography

I wrote an article on intro DSLR kits on Amazon. I wouldn't bother unless you bundled them with your camera.

They're definitely crappy extra toys, but they may help you learn more about photography (by showing you how things make your image quality worse); but they also were kind of fun at the beginning and encouraged me to get out and shake the bugs off and dig into learning how to shoot good photos (and how extra toys don't really help). Everyone takes shitty photos at the start anyway, so you're not missing much; and it's not a ton of extra money over grabbing a body/kit lens/good SD card; but if you already have your camera kit, you can skip it for sure.


Those are strong enough for point and shoot cameras at most. Especially with a telephoto lens, the tilt arm is likely to fail and it'll fall on sensitive optical mechanics. Those are in the $10 price range. Spend at the very least closer to $30 on a tripod, and a $100-ish tripod will be a safe, and useful tool to use with your precision imaging equipment.

tl;dr - Sure, it's a waste of a little money, but they can be kind of fun toys. Burn the tripod.

Stuff I'd suggest getting:

  • 2-3 nice SD cards: Class 10, 32-64 GB each

  • Another few cheaper (but still fast) SD cards: 4-8 GB

  • Solid tripod. $30 or $100 is well worth the money

  • Rocket blower. Avoid touching the lens, whenever possible and never touch the sensor. A lens cloth should be plenty. Avoid being tempted to use a wet cleaning kit on the lens or the sensor if possible

  • I love my big, cheap camera bag. I have 3 lenses, and a speedlight and this is perfect for me. I wear it across my chest and carry it on my lower back where it's out of the way and easy to deal with 95% of the time.

  • An Intervalometer that matches your camera

  • Manual flash that can tilt & swivel

  • Flash triggers are fun and work great with those cheap $10 tripods. Check for great tutorials and inspiration

  • Flash gels can be fun creative tools too. Can you tell I'm getting into playing with off-camera speedlights?

I was looking at a 1510 carry-on size for my laptops and Amazon has it at $169.18 & FREE SHIPPING (You Save: $102.77 (38%)), B&H has it for $146.22 + free shipping already.

u/provideocreator · 4 pointsr/videography

Here's what I would do for a 2 camera setup:

Main camera (with stabilization): Panasonic GH5 with 12-35mm f2.8 lens for $2395.98

Secondary camera (with kit lens and microphone, usually on a tripod): Panasonic G7 for $499.99

Two SanDisk Extreme Pro cards: $46.80

So far you're at $2942.77, leaving $2057.23 for audio and lighting accessories.

For lighting, you can get a 3 Panel Aputure kit for $725 that can be powered off batteries or wall power, depending on where you're filming.

Audio can be handled in two ways: first, you can get a wireless kit for voice and interviews and that can record directly into the camera. Take a look at the $329.00 Rode RodeLink kit for that.

The second option is an on-camera audio recorder (instead of a microphone). There are cables you can get to connect these directly to the camera for recording, or you can record within the device itself and sync it later. The reason I suggest this is because of versatility. If you get a Zoom H5 recorder for $249.99 you can pick up different microphone capsules for a variety of audio situations. Like a shotgun microphone for example. You can also plug in and record a regular XLR microphone with these recorders.

The audio and lighting setup adds $1303.99 to the cost, leaving $753.24. The last thing is to get a Pelican 1510 case for $199.99 to protect the camera and your audio equipment.

At the end, this leaves you with $553.25 extra. That's a good thing, since you'll inevitably need more equipment or accessories as you get started, and you don't want to find out about that after blowing through the entire budget.

The suggestion you got from HCR would be a poor decision. Don't go spending everything on a single camera that's way our of your skill level and packed with unnecessary features. The reality is you'll be able to get better footage out of the GH5 with lighting and audio anyways.

u/throwback · 4 pointsr/sailing

I have one of these and I love it. Pair it with a Pelican Case for your wallet and cellphone and you're all set.

u/jtriangle · 4 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

I wouldn't be worried about heat as much as I would about water or moisture. Lithium batteries and water don't play nice. I'd invest in a little pelican case for your stuff, that way you won't have to worry if you get rained on.

One of these should work: and a bit of foam for cushion and you're good to go. Keep it out of the sun and it shouldn't be an issue.

u/frappypants · 4 pointsr/SexToys

My favorite is to use DSLR camera bags. You can get them cheaply on Amazon.

  • Shoulder version
  • Larger backpack

    They have movable velcro dividers, so you can rearrange the compartments however you like. It also allows you to keep things separate- i.e. storing the silicone lube away from the silicone toys.
u/TonyDarko · 4 pointsr/photography

That was an excellent and thoughtful gift, kudos to you. Aside from the lenses, there are a few other things that help a lot when starting out in photography (I'm just figuring this out as I'm pretty new):

  • A tripod can help if he wants to take low-light pictures and set up really long shutter times (it basically makes it so that no shaking messes up his pictures) and it can help to take pictures of you guys. I'm planning on bringing one for a trip with my girlfriend and I so we can take cool pictures where there may not be other people to help out.

  • A good bag or backpack would be great, increasingly so as the amount of gear that he has goes up. It's tough to carry around all that crap, and these bags make it pretty easy to fit.

  • a strap, pretty self explanatory. carrying around a DSLR in one hand sucks.

  • Extra memory cards and possibly an external hard drive are nice because RAW camera files take up a toooon of storage and having backups is always nice in the case that a really important picture gets corrupted.

    As for lenses:

    Nikon 35mm prime (basically allows him to take pretty nice, wide open landscape pictures at great quality)

    50mm prime widely regarded as the best starting lens (another no zoom lens that is an all-around all-star that is pretty versatile. good for portraits, landscapes, etc)
u/lovesickremix · 4 pointsr/photography

So i'm taking a big trip in march to Japan. Going to tokyo, kyoto and some day trips around there. I will be gone for two weeks and living out a backpack. My question is, which one?

I have stepped away from photography for awhile but am coming back to it for this big trip. I currently have a sling bag, but it can only carry my camera and couple of lenses. I am trying to make this trip with just one back pack. So i'm thinking of getting a back pack and a dslr insert to carry the camera.

The camera is a Nikon D7000, with two lenses (kit 18-140mm and 70-300mm). Will pack two pairs of jeans, 3 pairs of shirts, and other odds and ends.

Would it be better for me to get a camera bag that can work as a carry one (and also carry clothes)? OR, just get a good carry on back pack and get a dslr insert. Has anyone been to Japan with this kind of travel? what gear did you bring and how did it go? any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

u/higher_moments · 3 pointsr/photography

After many hours of comparison-shopping online, I think I've finally got my urban camera-carrying situation sorted out. Your needs/preferences may vary, but here's what works for me.

I've basically got two setups: backpack and sling. The backpack is the REI Ruckpack 28L, which comfortably fits (for example) my camera insert, tripod, and light jacket or two in the main compartment. It's also got a handy side zip panel for easy access to the camera insert. I have the Peak Design Capture Clip on one of the shoulder straps, so I can keep the camera (Pentax K-70) either on the clip for super convenient shooting or in the bag for safety.

For the sling setup, I use the Peak Design 10L sling. The main compartment comfortably holds my camera, (at least) three lenses, and my tripod, and there's good storage for other accessories as well. For example, the tripod can also be carried in the external straps, freeing up space in the main compartment for a light jacket or such. While the sling has an attachment point for the capture clip, I find that's not a very convenient/comfortable setup, at least for my DSLR. Instead, the camera is either in my hands or in the bag.

The downside to the sling is that there's no easy place to stick the camera without accessing the bag, unlike the backpack/capture clip setup, where I can stick the camera securely on my chest in two seconds without accessing the pack. The benefit to the sling is that I can sling it around in front of me, providing a convenient container/horizontal surface for comfortably changing a lens without taking the sling off or sitting down. The sling is also ~1/3-1/2 the size of the backpack, so there's a size/capacity tradeoff there as well (in addition to the backpack being more comfortable overall).

Anyway, I'm not sure if that exactly addresses your question, but I just thought I'd share a pair of setups that I've found work for me, which are somewhat complementary in practicality but each quite versatile in their own right.

u/walksimos · 3 pointsr/Multicopter

I'm currently using a Pelican 1400 case, which features customizable foam and a waterproof, super durable shell.

Its latches make a supremely satisfying click, it looks professional, and I have complete confidence that the transmitter is protected.

u/threewheeldrive · 3 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Awesome! Thanks for the compliment! I already had the pelican 1200 case, but you can order the "pick and pluck" foam inserts off amazon separately. I especially like this one because of how secure everything is, and because the case is waterproof.

Here is a link for the exact case, with the "Pick n' Pluck" foam.

Although I would urge you to check out their website for other cases that might be a little bigger and flatter.

u/insaneturbo13 · 3 pointsr/mflb
u/yerffej · 3 pointsr/smashbros

Mine was given to me, I don't know the exact model but I think this one is similar. I can look at it later when I'm off work and let you know what I have.

u/schwack · 3 pointsr/Vaping101

My setup is a little unique because I tend to go a little overboard on e-liquids and tanks. I've gone through about 5 or 6 mods since I've started vaping, and have been content with clearomizer setups for a while now. Although with the new Kanger Subtank i picked up, I'm anxious to get into building RDA's.

This is the case I got for Christmas, and the price is good. The thing I like about most is it's toughness and removable foam. The whole inner bottom half of the case has foam installed like a grid. You just remove only the squares you want to make the case cater to your setup. I generally take the case with me anytime I hang out with my vaping buddies, or when I'm vaping at the stores.
Here are some pics of my humble setup. , , and

I keep a couple juices in there, always have spare coils for my setup and for friends who may need one in a pinch, a spare tank to switch up my flavors, and batteries if I so desire. I've seen a lot of people who are really into rebuilding use tackle boxes for a similar purpose. I just preferred the toughness and flexibility of this one.

u/Fargonian · 3 pointsr/gundeals

Bought three of these the other day after seeing this deal on Uzitalk, they look very similar to a Pelican 1200 case at half the price.

Pelican 1510-000-110 Carry On Case with Pick 'N' Pluck Foam (Black)

u/KingKasey · 3 pointsr/livesound

Not a backpack but , Ive been using a pelican 1510 for a while .Traveling with it has been better than most back packs I've owned and better protected.

u/MacintoshEddie · 3 pointsr/backpacking

What you're looking for is a pack with a good, sturdy hip belt. The hip belt transfers most of the weight onto your hips, rather than your shoulders and thus your spine. A lot of cheaper backpacks will just have waist/hip straps rather than belts, and really all they do is keep the pack from flopping around rather than supporting weight. Hip belts are not magic though, and even with the best support in the world you might still experience back pain.

You should be able to go into just about any hiking/camping store and talk to an employee there who can get you fitted(different people have different shaped bodies, and especially with spinal issues you need a pack that fits right), and offer recommendations.

If you haven't looked already, depending on what you need to transport a rolling case might be a better idea. Something like this Pelican 1510 carry on case which has wheels. On a bus it's not going to take up much more space than a pack will, and you can use it as a portable seat.

What sort of gear are you transporting?

Edit: This is an example of a waist strap and this is an example of a hip belt. They are just the first two options I saw on the website, I don't have experience with either of the packs but I tend to hear good things about Osprey.

u/flicman · 3 pointsr/photography

I have this backpack from Mountainsmith and love it. Looks like it's not made anymore, but their new model looks decent, too. Too high for your price range, though - I got mine for a steal at like $115, so I immediately thought of it. Maybe one of those used is around?

I also have the Lowepro Fastpack 350 that I like fine, but definitely don't love, but at $70, maybe the price is too appealing to pass up? Still enough room for daily crap, but not nearly as well-appointed.

edit for links

Read this buying guide from /r/headphones. Sure SE215s are one of the standard suggestions. The price isn't ludicrous, they are extremely durable, and the cables are easily replaceable (the part that fails 99% of the time). There are cheaper options if you don't want to spend that much, but not with the replaceable cable.

The most important thing you can do to make your headphones last is don't wind them up and shove them in your pants pocket, bag pocket, and for the love of god don't leave them plugged in to your phone and wound around the screen. Get a small hard shell case for them and use it to transport your earbuds when they aren't in use.

If you want to get fancy, get a tiny pelican case and some pick + pluck foam. Or just get an old Altoids mint tin and glue some miscellaneous thin padding in to it.

I use IEMs for ~5 hours a day, 5 days a week, and have never broken a pair. I've got excessively nice custom IEMs and a great case now, but I used the same strategy for years beforehand with much cheaper stuff.

u/swordknight · 3 pointsr/headphones

Invest in a hard case and gently wrap your IEMs and place them in.

You can try looking into Pelican Cases. They make little watertight boxes perfect for rugged activities. You can't use your phone while it's in the case, but it's a great protection for things you're not using during hiking: phone, keys, ID, cash, credit card.

u/levins0 · 3 pointsr/PipeTobacco

Personally, I'd keep the tobacco stuff separate from the gameboy using two smaller cases (actually, I'd probably put the gameboy in a dry bag rather than a box/case).

If you want a hard case for all of that, best bet is probably a Pelican case similar to this one: https: // . Note that this is a small one -- you probably need something larger.

The other option would be a Lock&Lock container like this one:

It's not as tough as the Pelican, but it's cheaper and still water/air tight. Again, watch the sizes to make sure you get something that fits.

u/NewtonGimmick · 3 pointsr/Hawaii

u/Numero5 · 3 pointsr/amiibo

I've heard that the smaller cases (like the mushroom case) and the cube-shaped ones are pretty useless unless you don't care about protection, as you basically just throw them in there and pray they don't get scratched or banged up during transport.

I've seen some people around here use this case:

There's some customer photos on that page, it looks good.

The Hori case looks pretty nice too, and Hori is known for making quality products. Less storage space though:

And if you're looking for something that's, like, completely padded and EXTRA safe, I've seen some users recommend camera/equipment cases like this:

u/tchefacegeneral · 3 pointsr/photography

The whole idea of having a SLR is the ability to change lenses in my opinion. Sure you could use a decent walk around lens like your 15-85 but stretching it any more leads to noticeable drop in quality. I never use to like carrying more than one lens untill i got this bag
Now I carry all 4 of my lenses AND my tripod (and remote timer, lens cleaning kit, flashlight for light painting) with me EVERY time I go out to take photos. It means you will have far less missed opportunities.

Currently you have a nice general purpose lens. The main thing it is missing is speed. A fast prime would probably work really well for you, especially if you carry around both lenses. Lots of people find 50mm a bit long on a crop and many people go with the 25-35 range for their first prime. Look through you photos and see what focal length most of them are at and pick that lenght (there is a program that can scan all your images and give you stats on focal length and other settings used but I can remember the name)

u/yourotherusername · 3 pointsr/photography

I've got the one of the slingshot bags and I love it. Used it with my d50, took it hiking, camping, skiing and flying. Love it. Now I have my D5100 in it and it is still great, + holds 2 other lenses, my flash, batteries, cards and my charger. Easy access to all things. has an all weather cover too, only used that once, but glad I had it.

Not so sure it is 'inconspicuous'.

u/mau5inthehau5 · 3 pointsr/djimavic

I have a Lowepro Slingshot 202 and I can fit my Sony a6000, 2 small lenses, 1 medium zoom, 3 extra camera batteries, a couple filters, Mavic and controller, JOBY GorillaPod, and charging cables for camera and Mavic. I'll try to remember to update tonight with some pictures of my setup with some measurements.

u/chucksense · 3 pointsr/photography

You won't find a faster lens with comparable focal lengths in your price range. You might be able to get a 24-105mm f/4L very used at that price, but new it is more than 3x that.

Your best bet is to invest in a faster lens that doesn't cover the same focal length and keep the 28-135mm around for flexibility. Alternately, upgrading the 50mm f/1.8 to the 50mm f/1.4 is a great move: better picture quality, better build quality, much more accurate auto-focus, and nicer bokeh.

In my mind, however, take that $300 and save it. Your needs are fairly well enough met that buying another $300 lens doesn't add much value. If you are truly dedicated to upgrading, save that $300, the next $300, the $300 after that, and one more time: then get yourself some truly nice glass.

Regarding bag, I've had great success with the Lowepro SlingShot AW series. It's a single-strapped backpack that swings under your arm for quick access. It's less than $100. It might not be quite what you are looking for, but they are great bags. B&H Link | Amazon Link

Ape Case Cubeze Interior Case for Cameras - Black/Yellow (ACQB33)

I recently got this very cheap insert and I like it. Fits my X-E2 plus three lenses, and you can wedge in a strap and batteries. Probably not big enough for your gear though, but I like it because I can just throw it in my Kelty backpack or Boreas pack which I already own instead of getting a new bag :P

u/rabton · 3 pointsr/photography

For your third question, I use a normal backpack with a padded insert. I bought this one and it's great. It fits perfectly snug into the bottom of a bag I had and it fits my K-50, 50-200 zoom, and 18-35 zoom. I've also got a pancake lens that sits in there (though it does get tight).

Take what you will as someone who's really, really casual about photography, but I haven't really used filters. I hear the cheap ones can mess with the quality of your picture. The one big accessory that's been helpful for me is a remote shutter release. Makes it so easy to take pictures when the camera is on a tripod and you want to avoid any shaking.

u/VRegg · 3 pointsr/Vive

I'm guessing everything will be consolidated into one box unlike the Dev units to make shipping easier. I'd doubt they put much thought into a portable case.

But don't worry I am sure there will be third parties that release a custom case. In the meantime, you can search for "Gadget Bag" on Amazon and other retailers. I could see many of the larger bags designed to accommodate a big DSLR cameras working well. Just don't forget to measure and account for the extra space needed for the tether.

I think something like this would work well, and the orange would be a nice touch to make it aperture sciency.

u/themcan · 3 pointsr/M43

Amazon Basics has a couple sizes of camera bag that could be an option; I have the larger and it fits my old P&S, camcorder, and EM10ii w/ pancake and 2 lenses (and all the assorted chargers and spare batteries for all the devices) with room to spare. I wouldn't call it a great solution if you're looking for something to wear on a hike or out on the town for an evening, but if you're just looking for something to keep your gear together to easily be able to take in your car, the price can't be beat.

u/The_Dead_See · 3 pointsr/telescopes

I drove my 8" dob around in the backseat of my car for years just wrapped in an old sleeping bag. It never got damaged. I didn't even have to re-collimate it that often. I'd hesitate to use a blanket that has lots of loose fibers and pilling, just because you don't want stuff to get down onto the primary mirror, but something with a tight weave like a nylon or polyester sleeping bag is perfect.

These days I keep my EPs in a cheap pluck foam case. It's plenty hard enough to protect them and keep them organized. However for years I just kept them in the little cardboard boxes they came in, inside an old padded picnic cooler bag. Worked fine.

u/Octopus46 · 2 pointsr/oculus

Judging from this, and knowing that the strap is about 1.6 inches high (40mm for standard ski goggle straps); I would confidently wildly guesstimate that the DK2 is about 4.1 inches high.

I wonder if this, this, or this might work as cheap options? Althought they all seem to be cutting it very tight on the depth. I am assuming the DK2 would sit in the case like it would sit on a table (like the first photo above), and not facing upward like they packaged it in the DK1 case, since there are a lot less case options that would fit it that way (without being huge)...

I have one of those ebay metal cases for my photo gear. I'm guessing you would be able to fit two full DK2 kits in it. They look decent and are affordable, but I find mine to be a bit heavy (5.5 pounds empty) and a bit awkward to carry sometimes (if I load it heavy specially). Even though they look decent, there is something about the build quality that feels slightly cheap when you handle it; specially the locking hinges. Nothing terrible in particular, but it just doesn't have that awesome quality feel of expensive cases like an HPRC, a Pelican or a Seahorse would have. But it does get the job done.

We should really know the actual DK2 dimensions (plus the accessories) before choosing a case. The hardest dimensions to accommodate will be the depth, since most small cases are also shallow.

u/JorgJorgJorg · 2 pointsr/vaporents

u/hydraulx · 2 pointsr/EDC

I usually either use a Pelican 1650 or 1500 case with foam inserts and a TSA lock depending on how much gear I'm bringing.

u/virgil990 · 2 pointsr/oculus

I got the Pelican 1500 with the lid organizer.

The factory camera tripod doesn't fit with all the other accessories so I got this portable tripod as well.

I'm not going to insult anyone here but we really need to start being more honest and less "rosey" about some aspects of VR, particularly Oculus users. The carrying case it comes in is better than a cardboard box for sure, it's much nicer. It's not really a carrying case in the sense that you could travel with it, which is what I'm assuming someone would need a case for. It has a string handle and a faux leather exterior. If you're not careful with it around the kitchen I could see it being almost completely destroyed. A Pelican can literally be run over by a truck, kicked around by airport security, and will even serve as a floation device if said airplane crashes. Overkill? Maybe, but you paid $600 for a VR HMD what's another $100. The 1500 fits the HMD perfectly, all cables/accessories, and (once I get dimensions) am 98% confident will fit the touch controllers as well.

If you're curious, the 1510 fits the Vive with all accessories perfectly and the 1400 fits the Gear VR with a Moga Pro perfectly. I have all 3 with cases and did a LOT of research.

u/drewforty · 2 pointsr/cigars

I bought a "Cigar Caddy" 5-stick travel case (amazon) 5 months ago and have been satisfied with the purchase. It is a little small and won't fit 5 bigger-gauge sticks, but it is just wide enough to fit a few NUBs vertically on one end.

Bonus, I got to handle it and a friends OtterBox dry box at the same time, and can confirm they come off the same assembly line. Only the sticker was different. This is also the same product as the "Herf-a-Dor" seen here.

If you are really rough on them, maybe re-purpose a Pelican like this one?

u/abnormica · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

I was just thinking about this. I picked up a Pelican 1200 on Amazon for $39.99 as part of last year's Black Friday sale. It's currently listed as $67, but I think this is somewhat of a mainstay for their annual sale. I don't know that it's 'non-bulky', but it's definitely strong and the pick and pluck foam makes for a nice custom fit for my 1911.

u/SleepyHolly · 2 pointsr/Multicopter

With the Pelican 1510, I assume you mean you want a case that can fit under FAA's maximum carry on size with rollers and handle plus all the usual pressure o-ring...

Google's top hit is on Amazon for $170 sold by Pelican

MCM's equivalent is the 24130 for $77: "22 inch Rolling Black Weatherproof Equipment Case with Telescopic Handle"

I'm not associated with MCM or these cases. I do however bought a similarly sized one for my gear and love it. The build quality is only about 90% of Pelican but for most of us that don't do trade shows should be perfectly fine with these. Alternatively, buy two of these from MCM for less than the Pelican version of your case.

u/Crovax87 · 2 pointsr/photography

I use 2 bags. A lowepro fastpack 100 and a fastpack 250.

Fastpack 100 feature. Carries my Canon T2I while equipped with a battery grip, and my 55-250mm telephoto with lens hood off. Can carry extra lens like my 50mm with hood on. Main pack hold various items such as my flash, business cards, memory stick and extra batteries.

Fastpack 250. Holds what said above but with lens hood on the telephoto. Can carry multiple lenses about 4 pockets I believe. Just a little larger size in the main pack and holds everything that came with my camera like the cables, etc. One major thing I love about it is it has a zipper slot for a laptop. But for me I use it to carry my portfolio.

They are relatively cheap considered most bags are expensive. They are weather proof. I mostly use my 250 but only complaint is how bulky it is so it's great for heavy traffic via people. So if im doing a shoot i use it as base camp to swap my gear in and out. The little bag is amazing for travel like car shows and various should to shoulder events. Id recommend the sling version.

u/Iamthetophergopher · 2 pointsr/photography

I am using the bag linked below. Fits my FF canon 6d w/ 70-200 IS lens, 2-3 other lenses and a flash in the bottom compartment, the top compartment holds a strap and light jacket, snacks, etc. Then there is a padded laptop slit for a 17in Lenovo.

u/hackofalltrades · 2 pointsr/vfx

I do this, quite often. I work remotely from home every day, but when I travel I work even more remotely.

Basically , the day before I'm going to leave I pack up all the plates and support files I'll need to do my work onto a USB 3 drive. All my folder structures etc are mirrors of what's on my home system.

I have a Macbook Pro with as much ram as they offered 5 years ago.... (still 16 GIGs.... sigh)

And I take a plethora of USB 3 drives. I also have a second USB 3 powered 15 inch screen. I use a powered USB 3 hub, a wireless mouse and occasionally a full sized wireless keyboard. I also have a Wacom tablet and 2 of each species of cable in case something goes wrong on the road.

I do all my work building my project files on my Macbook Pro, get everything dialed in etc. Then I use dropbox, or my own FTP, Google drive or some other thing to send myself the project files.

I then use splashtop screen sharing software to remote into my home machine, drag the project file into the correct location in the folder structure, open it on my home machine, and render it there.

My main job uses Shotgun for reviews, so I log in from home, upload my quicktimes, then upload my DPX's to their server... all of this happens pretty much real time, and doesn't really rely on super fast internet other than to support the video share to home.

Your portable system can be whatever you can afford, but I'd spend the extra money and get as much ram as you can cram in there.

It makes a WORLD of difference having a dual monitor setup on the road. I always feel cramped when I step down from my dual 27 inch screens to Dual 15 inch screens, but, it's better than a single screen!

This is what I use, there are others but what's great is it folds flat

I use a Lowepro camera backpack with a laptop area

I can fit my Macbook Pro, my Wacom Tablet and my Monitor in the laptop compartment.

Then I have the camera compartment to store my Digital SLR, an extra Lens, and additional pockets for cables, hard drives and power supplies.

(Individual results may vary.... but my kit usually is in the 75 pound range)

It's heavy.. but I have yet to be anywhere out and about where I didn't feel I could bust open a portable studio and do whatever was needed. Shoot, I even did some emergency work while onboard a cruise to Norway! (Shipboard wifi is CRAP!)

u/Madblood · 2 pointsr/photography

Check the Lowepro Fastpack 350. I don't carry as much as you (yet) but it holds all my gear with room to spare plus a rather thick 17" laptop. There doesn't seem to be a way to readily attach a tripod, but it could probably be done with some extra straps or zip ties. I just bought the backpack a couple weeks ago, so I haven't flown with it or done any long walks/hikes yet, but it's pretty comfortable so far. You can't really get to the camera compartment while you're wearing it, but that is probably the case with most backpacks. Sling bags are a little more convenient for that, but I find them uncomfortable on long walks or hikes over rough terrain.

u/RizzoFromDigg · 2 pointsr/videography

Carry on your camera, and anything high dollar you can fit along with you. And enough support equipment that you could use the camera without anything else. Sound kit as well if possible.

I highly recommend the Pelican 1510 case:

That's the largest case you can carry-on to a plane, and is quite sturdy, to say the least.

Depending on the job and the circumstances, I would question flying with a light kit & tripod. Almost ANY destination will have a decent rental house where you can inexpensively pick up a 3-light kit, some modifiers and a set of sticks. It may not be cheaper than paying for a checked bag, but it will certainly be a lot less hassle once you've done it a few times.

First off, you would need an adequate bag to fly your lights and tripod in. If we're talking Arri Fresnels and a decent tripod, that's a hefty bag that's oversized for flying. If we're talking cheapo lights and a photo tripod, that's a different story.

I own a big hard sided Samsonite 32" traveler that's the largest suitcase you can check without paying oversize luggage fees. It costs $50 to check it most times, it's not terribly secure, and it's not big enough for a real Manfrotto tripod. The bag alone cost $250.

I would highly recommend just paying day rate to rent the support equipment on site, and flying with just your camera and sound gear in a carry on.

u/VariXx · 2 pointsr/ploompax

If you get some spare batteries, I'd recommend a water resistant case like the pelican 1010, that'll help keep the moisture off em and 65mm long cells (18650, 26650) fit great in those.

Also if you're looking for more cells, is a reputable site for batteries and I think the keeppower ones would work, specially mentions the L6.

> Not to get too flyertalk-y, but what rental company? I'm crossing my fingers w/ National as an executive member that they'll have a convertible or something decent (fun) on the aisle.

  • I paid for my entire trip with points/miles. All the car rental companies are very similar. I used Budget since it was the cheapest. The cost was ~3,338 pts/day using my Sapphire Reserve through Chase's booking site. (YMMV)

  • /u/manachar made some great points from a local perspective. However, I don't think renting a convertible is impractical for visitors. Driving around a beautiful Hawaiian island with the top down was a wonderful feeling and I wouldn't want it any other way. But that's my preference. I'm from the midwest where people appreciate any opportunity to feel the warm open air when driving.

  • Car theft is a problem in many areas of Hawaii and nearly all Mustangs/Camaros are being driven by tourists. However, a little common sense goes a long way. Don't walk away with the top down. Don't keep valuables in the car.

  • Also, a general point to consider is what you'll do with the key fob when you go to the beach. I did not want to leave my belongings on the beach unattended, so I bought a Pelican 1010 case to keep my key fob, cash, and cards dry when snorkeling.

  • A majority of the roads are in great condition. Some back roads and parking lots can be rough but I never felt that the Mustang was incapable of handling them.

    > I'd like to as I've heard good things, and some of the stops (e.g., waterfalls) seem interesting, but I'm not sure if I'm up for a day-long drive or doing this as an overnight trip. I might look into one of the tours

    It was a great experience but over-hyped in my opinion. I would still recommend it. There are several beautiful waterfalls, cliffs, distant scenic landscapes, and hikes (although most hiking I did was in West Maui).

    > I've heard! I guess that's a perk of this being a work trip!

    In that case, check out Mama's Fish House! It's costly, but worth it. You'll need to make a reservation days in advance.
u/Kurly_Q · 2 pointsr/alpinism

Seconded on the RX100 II. a point and-shoot is what you want. I have multiple cameras (Sony a7, canon t2i, sony rx100 II) and I only carry the rx100 when going on light-and-fast trips.

As a beginner photographer, you don't want to be buying a bunch of lenses. the rx100 has a zoom lens, so you can get both wide and tight shots.

You probably won't be taking photos of the stars and such, so you don't need a bigger sensor. (But the rx100 CAN do's a shot I took with mine:

Finally, you can put an rx100 in a pelican case to make it bombproof:

In short, get an rx100. you'll probably be shooting in auto mode for a bit, but there's plenty of room to increase your knowledge when you decide to.

u/dolichoblond · 2 pointsr/Watches

Depends on if you want to display them or not. There are a ton of display type cases. Wolf Designs gets good marks and is well stocked in North America. You can go way up in price from there.

Pelican cases are also great, functional, DIY solutions. Especially if you have a collection with lots of sizes, extra straps, etc. There are a lot of threads at WUS discussing sizes and showing layout possibilities; I followed something like this one. Then I got a smaller case, the Pelican 1050 which I use for traveling. Since I made the holes for the pipe-wrap the same size, I can just grab 2 watches out of the big box and quick swap them into the small case and head out the door. It works so well I even got another 1050 that has 1 watch slot and 1 space for cufflinks or strap changes or other random stuff. It's heavy and big but for business trips where you're basically wearing a suit & watch or sleeping, I'm not sweating the luggage space.

I noticed that the Pelican cases are super-expensive on the site. You can definitely get them for cheaper (ebay) and perhaps even local. Heck, for the price difference you can drive to BUF. Check camera shops as they tend to stock them, although usually the larger sizes (not sure about Futureshop...maybe Vistek?? or smaller shops?)

EDIT: not all pelican cases come with foam. especially true with the smaller ones. sometimes there are two options (with and without) when ordering online. just fyi as I don't want you getting stuck with double shipping if you do order online from the south.

Conterra Med-Pouches on our belts

We use the carpuject system, and carry Morphine, Fentanyl, Versed and Valium in the pouch. While I do love the ease of access for pain management, seizures, etc. I will say the pouches themselves offer little protection against impact. Due to this my agency is currently researching other options, such as Pelican hard cases inside a large pouch.

My previous job (Private EMS) used the Pelican 1040 to hold Morphine and Valium inside a massive pouch - on smaller Medics it looked like they were carrying a tablet on their hip. All kidding aside however, I'll take the protection the Pelican's offer from the chaotic environment of the field over the comfort/discreetness of the Conterra.

Fellow rider here... I like to store some of my equipment in pelican cases. Pretty rugged and will add a decent layer of protection for your phone/wallet. I'm guessing you're not interested in the tankbag route, but check out a few links I'll list below:

EDIT: I saw you prefer the items to be securely closed inside, so a grid-it could be an option inside one of the AmazonBasics cases or a similar case... but not as likely your problem solver...

and another option would be (if you didn't want to zip it up each time but wanted it to remain secure under the seat) to add a grid-it organizer

Hope one of these helps.
Ride safely!

This was going to be my suggestion! I have several little Pelican cases like these that I often take with me. They're not 100% waterproof, but they do a great job thrown up into the bow of my kayak when I'm going to be in it for a while. They're cheap, and have multiple sizes depending on what she may want to hold.

u/jhundo · 2 pointsr/guns

Maybe something like this tethered to your yak with a carabiner. and throw a desiccant pack in there to be safe.

u/lxkhn · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

lowepro slingshot They have diffrent sizes.

u/dalix · 2 pointsr/photography

I have a Lowerpro bag I use for my T2i and I absolutely love it. I have the larger bag and am seriously considering also getting the Slingshot bag for walking around the city.

u/burning1rr · 2 pointsr/SonyAlpha

I do a lot of lens swaps in the field. A holster bag provides a safe way to swap lenses. I also like the LowePro Lens-Exchange pouches.

If you want something larger, my advice is to look for a rear-entry backpack. They are designed to be accessible without setting the bag down. And the design is less likely to drop your lenses if a zipper comes loose. I use the Mindshift Backlight.

If you still want something like the SL100, take a look at the LowePro slingshot. I have one that I'm not using anymore. If you live in the US, I'll give it to you for the price of shipping, and maybe a donation to a charity.

u/xsoccer92x · 2 pointsr/researchchemicals

Amazon. These are what I use and they function perfectly.

I keep em in this case

Might as well throw in some Silica Gel Packets

u/highcenter · 2 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

I've been wanting the same, looking at this one.

It's a Pelican, so you know it's quality. Not sure if it's to big. It does float, so if I find myself wanting a maritime vape, suppose I'd be set. Alas, I remain undecided. Looking forward to other suggestions.

u/Ca5bah · 2 pointsr/arizer

Is what I use, is perfect.

u/lamic · 2 pointsr/gopro

So word on the street is the Hero5 will be coming out soon. I would wait until that happens and swipe up the Hero4 Silver or Black at a reduced price. These will be perfect for what you're looking to do and you can swap out SD cards and batteries. Something like this is good and it comes with an extra battery - should help keep you charged up for your trip. As far as your question about SD cards - not all SD cards work with GoPros. You can search around on this sub for more but personally I think the easiest thing to do is take the ones that they sell on their website and then go find a better price on amazon, newegg, etc.

As far as other accessories, I'll go ahead and throw out some of my personal favorites. I use this pole. It's really durable but you'll need to swap out their little tripod mount on the top that holds the camera in place for one of GoPro's tripod mounts (I can go into more detail if you need). I always keep my lens cover on mine whenever it's not in use or in my pocket just so I'm not scratching or smudging up the lens. The tool is great because it can be hard to tighten the thumbscrew sometimes to keep your camera in place. Even though it's a bit costly, the remote was totally worth it - especially if I'm around water and can't use the app on my phone to control the camera. Finally - you've got to have something to put it all in. I know there's cases out there that are made for GoPros + accessories but I love my pelican case because it's water proof and I know I can take it anywhere without ruining the stuff inside (i.e. SD cards, batteries, chargers, etc.). This is the one I have. In hindsight I wish I would have gotten one just slightly bigger so I could fit a few more things but I love it. Sorry that's a lot but I hope it helps.

u/anotherbrokephotog · 2 pointsr/photography

Crumpler 5mdh
Amazon basics sling pack (would carry all your stuff easily). Only reason I didn't like my sling pack was because I was overpacking it with gear. 17-50, 80-200, 50mm, 100mm, + flash + tripod. The seams started tearing on it, though they haven't given out. With less stuff flying around in it, I'd recommend.

Or anything by Crumpler or Lowepro

u/bobbfwed · 2 pointsr/Nikon

This maybe?

These AmazonBasics bags are amazing. I've had one for a couple years now, traveled all around the world, not a single complaint.

u/ThePnuts · 2 pointsr/djimavic

Friend of mine was doing this so I copied. it works extremely well.

Case Holds Mavic + Battery, 3 more batteries and my old note4 I use to fly with.

For quick grab and go, I grab that and the controller separate with the stick guards in a backpack or something.

For everything I have this:

Above case fits perfect inside it with the controller in the main pocket with lots of extra room. Top pocket has adv charger and phantom 4 charger plus props, etc. All in one bag essentially.

Its small and works well

u/d4vezac · 2 pointsr/Nikon

Third party flashes (Godox, Flashpoint, Yongnuo, Neewer) are quite good, and so are their radio triggers.

For cards, your D7200 has two slots. This can be important for redundancy if you shoot paid gigs, since a corrupted/lost card would be a bad thing.
Cards do come in different speeds, which will affect how quickly your buffer clears (important for sports where you may take a burst to catch the action). I’d use a pair of fast cards at smaller capacities (32 or 64 GB). Two 32s shooting raw gets me ~1300 shots, which has been enough for all but one or two events I’ve shot. I keep spares in my bag to swap during a performance’s intermission.

I use the cheaper Amazon Basics Sling and it holds my D7200 with 18-35 attached, 50-100, and 8 extra double As in the main pocket, with a flash, 50mm lens, wireless trigger, and a few cleaning supplies plus earplugs in the top. Barely. You can strap an additional flash to the outside if need be.

u/Zigo · 2 pointsr/photography

I actually still maintain that a camera insert and a good quality backpack from your brand of choice is the way to go with mirrorless setups. I carry an X-T2, 35 f/1.4 and 16 f/1.4 pretty much everywhere I go, and the insert lets me do it all with a locally made bag that I love. Of course, you'll probably want something a little bit more serious if you're going backpacking, but the concept is the same.

u/mt61286 · 2 pointsr/photography

I use Amazon Basic's camera backpack to store 90% of my camera gear. I usually put it in my car in the morning, just in case I need it.

I also often use a waterproof backpack with a padded insert for day hiking and stuff.

u/Chriscbrn · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

What do you use as a case/waterproofing? I have been trying to experiment replicating this out of DF and UL foam. Possibly with the addition of a dry bag style roll top.

u/Mubaroo · 2 pointsr/AskPhotography

I use an Ape Case ( for my travel gear. It's quite similar to the one you were thinking of. I'd definitely recommend it. It's lightweight and provides quite good protection. I used mine on fieldwork in rural Cambodia and it protected my camera from bumps, dust and rain quite admirably.

u/serion · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This is the one that was suggested before: I only remember because I have the same one for a camera. I'm probably going to pick another up for my Switch. It is a nice bag and much cheaper than the Switch specific bags.

u/ProJokeExplainer · 2 pointsr/magicTCG

Amazon Basic camera bag. Holds about a dozen decks in ultra pro boxes, all the dice and counters i could ever need. It even has a strap on the bottom you could use for a playmat (I haven't bought one yet)

Best part? $20.

u/zzuzz · 2 pointsr/magicTCG

I use an amazon DSLR bag and have gotten pretty pleased with the setup:

Currently I have 2 EDH decks, 2 Standard decks, and my limited box in there, and there's room for 3 more standard sized boxes stacked on top of what you see in picture 2. Side pockets have dice on one side and another deckbox with tokens on the other, front flap holds pens, scoring pads, DCI card, and usually extra sleeves or whatever.

The limited box has 9 of each land sleeved up (I'm terrible at deckbuilding and can't afford to waste time sleeving lands) and 40 or so sleeves for the deck and a few sideboard cards.

The playmat tube attaches to the front (straps meant for a tripod), which is adequate at best. I wish it could strap down to the top instead, but it works well enough.

u/Photo_Creator · 2 pointsr/photography

I just bought a DSLR too. This is what I got: AmazonBasics Large DSLR Gadget Bag Seems to work well. It has enough room for a couple of lenses and a flash.

u/Zalbu · 2 pointsr/photography

Does anybody have any recommendations for a decently priced camera messenger bag? I'm going to go hiking soon and I was thinking about getting something like the Peak Design Camera Clip, but they're pretty expensive for what you're getting so I might as well just go with a regular bag.

I don't really care about looks, just that it's somewhat durable and easy to access your gear. I don't need a gigantic bag since I have a Sony A6000 with the 18-105 lens and will buy the Sigma 30mm and 55-210 down the line.

Does anybody have any experience with this?

u/flyhigh141 · 2 pointsr/photography

I’m looking for a 20-30L camera backpack!

I currently have the Lowepro Photosport 200 AW , but it doesn’t hold all my gear + adventure gear anymore. I need something bigger.

My gear includes Canon 7D2, 3x lenses (one 70-200 tele), Mavic Air + controller, assorted adventure gear/ layers. I’d tend to want more space than less if given a choice.

I’ve looked into Lowepro’s ProTactic 350 AW and 450 AW . I really like it’s rugged and tactical design. The 450 seems a little too big since I like being able to keep my backpack between my legs on buses/ cars/ planes. Will the 350 accommodate a similar size? Should I go with a bit of extra room in the 450?

I’ve also looked into F-Stop’s 32L Lotus , and Kashmir 30L . Having already purchased the Medium ICU makes these an easier purchase. My concern is that they might be too big to travel with easily. What are people’s thoughts on the company and design of these two?

What other factors should I consider in a bag? What other bags or companies should I look at?

Anything helps! I’m trying to purchase NOW during these cyber Monday sales so anything helps!!

u/tonydaazntiger319 · 2 pointsr/Filmmakers

This sounds right up your alley: Case Logic 206 SLR and 15.4" Laptop Backpack

If you're looking for something super heavy duty and more expensive then you might like this: LowePro ProTactic 450 AW Backpack

I know those are very popular and if you just enter "Camera and Laptop Backpack" on either Amazon or B&H, you'll find lots of options that might suit your tastes better.

u/abluthbanana · 2 pointsr/bmpcc

I have the pro tactic 450 ii but this is the first version that will work just as well for 100 less. I’ve used it for travel to carry a 15” laptop and charger and 2 camera bodies with 3 lenses, edelkrone slider and batteries with a little extra room near the top. The bag is also slightly rigid so everything inside is semi-protected and it has three separate openings to the main compartment from the left, right and top of the backpack for quick and easy access.

If you only need to carry one lens and one camera you can save even more money and get the lowepro 350.

u/Constructestimator83 · 2 pointsr/dji

I bought a Mavic 2 Pro about 2 months ago and most recently took it to Scotland in this I took it as carry on along with my camera, it’s very comfortable and keeps everything secure.

I bought the Fly More Kit which I recommend since you get two more batteries and the car charging cord for the batteries. In Scotland I would fly the drone and then drive while recharging the battery. I never swapped between more than two batteries at a time. I purchased two additional batteries with gift cards for a total of five batteries.

u/XnFM · 2 pointsr/minipainting

I don't know if there are enough minis in the game to warrant it, but this is a hardside case with pluckfoam that can be converted to a mini box fairly easily. Red Beard Baron did a show case of his, which isn't perfect, but it's a good starting point if you were to make your own.

u/Einsteins_coffee_mug · 2 pointsr/pocketoperators

While checking the Amazon listing so I could link it for anyone in a similar need, I realized the current price is at $29 plus $20 shipping! No longer available prime nor at the $20 something I paid.

Also seeing ~$30 prime for used.

Plenty of pick ‘n pluck foam cases out there (and similar sized pistol carrying cases) so shop around. Definitely not worth the current listed prices.

u/PilotPirx · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Get some cheap aluminium photo case like this or this. You can cut out the padding to whatever you like. Just make sure it's large enough.

u/Kraphtuos968 · 2 pointsr/vaporents

This SRA case.
It's pretty deep like 6 inches, and I measured the bottom of the SSV before I bought it because I thought it might not fit. It latches but it's close.

u/mivok · 2 pointsr/Coffee

If you're curious what I ended up using, it's this:

The grinder I have is a Kuissential Evengrind (basically the same size as a Hario Skerton), so if you have a smaller grinder things might fit a little better. The biggest issue I had is that the top flap is a tight fit, and the whole thing is a bit bulky with all the padding intended to protect camera lenses. Other than that though it does the job until I can find something better.

u/ninjagowoo · 2 pointsr/SonyAlpha

Amazon worked for me. I got this one: and like it a lot. Sturdier than what I had expected. Brought it on a 4day trek in Peru and really never worried about the gear it was holding. I don't believe the 'waterproof' bit at all though haha. Only thing you should look out for is just sizing. I think this one is on the smaller side, but for an a6000 it should be more than plenty and have room for a second lens if you want to carry one around. Just make sure it'll fit in your bag of course.

u/scrotalBlossom · 2 pointsr/EDH

u/wakasm · 1 pointr/boardgames

I've been doing this myself in a few ways. I don't know if this is exactly what you are looking for but for me it was mostly about maximizing shelf space.

For party games, I put about 12-15 party games into one of these. basically all kinds of games that take up way too much space that mostly have just cards and chits. Games like Apples to Apples, Taboo, Wits and Wagers, and of our "trivia" type games, CaH, or anything that I had that really was full-on "party" game.

I also take big box games and put them in much smaller boxes. i have found these work really well:

For instance, games like Bang the Dice game, Codenames, lanterns, Timelines (+ all expansions), even Splendor fit inside one or two of these. Then I just print the labels and store them separately.

For a lot of everything else, I just use foamcore or storage boxes for games with lots of expansions. I was able to fit Eclipse + all expansions into the main box using foamcore. Fitting Zombiecide and all seasons into one carry tacklebox or Descent Second Edition + all expansions into 1 fishing tacklebox feels great after it's all organized, with plano stuff.

u/live_mas_drink_dew · 1 pointr/SonyAlpha

I have a MULE CamelBak and I threw in this for my camera and lens. Should be able to fit your tripod in there too.

Alternatively I'm thinking about getting the peak design everyday backpack while it's on sale at Massdrop.

u/Shepherdless · 1 pointr/travel

I have used a sling camera bag/backpack - some like this -

The easy rotation is nice for a camera and for lens changing, but I found the sling awkward for me. I switched to a crappy canvas standard backpack - which is just the right amount of shitty(nobody would want to steal it).

u/dasazz · 1 pointr/photography

The ones by AmazonBasics are actually quite good. There are also inserts made specifically for that like this one for example.

u/clickity_click_click · 1 pointr/photography

Why not add something like this to a backpack you already have?

u/travellingmonk · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

Depends on your goals and motivations. If you're out there to put on the miles, want to take stunning snapshots of vistas and portraits of your group, then something like the Sony RX100 (3/4/5) will work great and save quite a bit of weight and space over your 6D.

Another option is the "rugged" cameras like the Olympus TG-4... I've got an older Panasonic TS5 which isn't as good as the TG-4 (much less an RX100), but having a camera that you're not worried about dropping into a stream, that you can take kayaking and snorkeling, it does have its benefits. I picked it because (an earlier version I also had) was easy enough to operate with gloves when snowboarding or snowshoeing.

I usually don't mind hauling a pro body and 70-200. Since they're both weather sealed and pretty rugged I don't do much to protect them; just wrap in a fleece or puffy, lay near the top of my pack, and take care when putting my pack down. If I know there's a serious water crossing I'll bring a drybag for the camera. But if I'm planning on putting on a lot of miles / elevation, and there's not much wildlife, I may leave it behind and just bring the P&S. I've considered picking up an RX100 since I've heard so many good things about them... but I haven't been able to justify buying one quite yet.

What glass do you normally use and what do you like to shoot? For protection, you could get a padded insert like this:

The concern would be weather; you can probably store them in a plastic bag or dry sack and just not use them when it's raining, or invest in a rain sleeve if you want to shoot in the rain.

I have the same struggle! I found that this bag has helped a lot since I can swing it in front of me and then grab stuff, as opposed to just having the strap. In addition, to prevent finger prints and water drops, for quick shots, sometimes I just leave my lens hood on.

What size lens and does she carry around any additional lenses or accessories? Without knowing that it's hard to answer this question. I recently got a single shoulder sling backpack and really love it for when I'm traveling light. I was able to carry my body with small/medium sized lens along with two more mid size lenses. What I really liked was the ability to slide the pack forward to access my camera without taking the pack fully off. Here's the one I ended up getting:

Get one of those soft microfiber cases for ski goggles or helmets..

I can't speak for op, but amazon has been having some pretty good deals on them lately. I think op probably has a 1200(I do to in orange for a travel minitube), which is around $38 right now. They're great carrying cases though, they do a great job of protecting whatever is inside them.

u/Craysh · 1 pointr/Frugal

My buddy goes on float trips a lot.

The only problem that he has is that his group doesn't have music and the waterproof boomboxes cost an arm and a leg (and very few have any kind of MP3 support)

I purchased a Pelican 1300, and I drilled out two holes on the top (~ 1" space on each side). I then threw in two waterproof speakers making sure that it was sealed tightly (required some calk).

I stripped the RCA side of a 3.5mm jack to RCA cable and soldered the ends to the speakers.

That's a cool case. It probably won't work for me, since it won't fit a Dualshock.

I've come up with this Pelican case so far. The Pelican case may not work because the Dualshock 4 is just a bit taller put in vertically. It may fit. I must have mis-measured I'm going to do more measurements when I get my PSTV. and see if it will fit horizontally.

Edit: Actually just don't listen to me about the measurements, turns out I'm looking at the dimensions of the entire case. I'll have a link post to show what I end up doing. Most likely some sort of Pelican case.

Buy a pelican case. Just put up the damn $50 for a case large enough for your gun and a couple other items, and then get high quality lock (NOT MASTER LOCK) like an Abus Titalium (virtually unpickable).

It makes flying with a gun so much better. You only need the one lock on the smaller Pelicans.

Factory gun cases are garbage, a Pelican with a dessicant packet in it will keep your gun totally sealed from the elements.

You're in those two for under $50 total.

u/_olopops_ · 1 pointr/camping

Canoe trip and you are considering taking your DSLR and you think a Pelican case is overkill?

First off, I would get a used EOS-M (or M2) and the EF-M 18-55 & EF-M 22mm f/2.0 lenses. Light APS-C mirrorless. Great camera.

You could then get a smaller pelican case. For a couple pounds weight you could have a camera, extra lens, small tripod, batteries, and a case.

Here's a EOS-M in a Pelican 1200:

u/dimildarko · 1 pointr/vaporents

It is a Pelican 1200 with "Pick N Pluck" foam so it doesn't require a special device to cut the slots. You can find them cheaper if you're OK with other colors like the bright blue.

The Pelican 1510 is pretty bombproof and comes with a lifetime warranty. You can get it in different colors and without the foam. It has two wheels rather than 4 like some carry-ons.

Pelican 1510 Case With Foam (Black)

u/Werm_Hatt · 1 pointr/bourbon

It depends. I have two main ones I use, this one and this one.

The 1510 easily holds 4 or 5 bottles, the 1650 is about double. It's hard for me to say exactly because I'm usually hauling beer as well. I've never had a bottle break on me but I do put each individual bottle in a sealed gallon ziplock. The pull a part foam that comes with the case works ok to pack them with, but I usually end up adding some bubble wrap.

One other thing if you go the pelican route - don't just buy it straight from Amazon. They go on sale a fair amount, check Camel Camel Camel and setup an alert. I got my 1510 for $80 and the 1650 for about 30% off if I remember correctly.

I've never used the Monoprice ones, but Pelican cases are widely regarded as the gold standard. I have three and the damn things are indestructible, and I would buy any of their products sight unseen based on their name and reputation alone.

That being said, Monoprice almost always provides a very good product for a very competitive price, so if you're looking to save a few bucks, they would be an excellent alternative. Looking at the photos on their site, they look quite comparable to Pelican offerings, and many are IP67 rated.

Compare -- Pelican 1510 ($160) vs. Monoprice Hard Case 12182 ($75.99). Looks nearly identical to me. Bit of a size difference, and minus the metal reinforced padlock holes, but you also save $84. Note that you have to pay shipping with Monoprice, though, and that can be spendy, so in the end the final price difference between the two will be less.

I know a lot of guys that fit all their gear into a backpack, a roller case, and a support bag. Backpack being any camera backpack, I usually see ones that are full camera and not half camera half accessory. Roller cases being any kind of rolling pelican case type. Some don't need a roller case and can fit everything but support into their backpacks but it depends. The support case pretty much always has wheels and is long and square, like this tenba one.

I would recommend getting something that fits a couple of internal hard drives packaged in a Pelicase. I transport a lot of Photography gear including some hard drives / SSDs for on-site backups with those, they are pretty much the industry standard (in my field) for getting gear to the shoot / job in one piece. Water resistant, you can park your car on it, can shoot them with a shotgun etc. The only problem: It makes you look like a weapons smuggler / James Bond Bad Guy, so be prepared for extensive security checks in airports.

5-Bay Storage:

Pelicase Example (Carry On Size):

I would check the size of the 5-bay Storage though. There will be a pelican case for it though.

The trekpak is 3rd party, right, not the same as this? Pelican 1510 Case with Padded Dividers (Camera, Equipment, Multi-Purpose) - Black

I just got mine today with the pick and pull foam and worried I should have spent the extra money for the dividers. If these dividers are different, then I'll use the foam until it wears out and then replace it with the trekpak

u/CaptRon25 · 1 pointr/flashlight

I agree with /u/david57strat The Pelican 1010 case is the way to go. Can fit (11) 18650's in it without modifying the foam inside the case, and waterproof. These silicon rubber sleeves are great for tossing a single battery in a backpack

u/C0nspire86 · 1 pointr/headphones

ive seen a few guys around here using this case

but i imagine something like this will provide you ample protection

u/roadpupp · 1 pointr/trees

These very small pelican cases work amazingly well! I use the small one with a black door. Perfect

u/jessika1005 · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

Pelican case I use this one with this pluck foam. Now granted it won't work for some taller tanks unless you take the drip tip off. I've taken it camping to set on top of the ice in the cooler to keep things cool. I've. I ended up getting a shallower one to keep my coils in that I purchase premade. This case is tall enough to hold 18650s upright. I believe it's 4 squares of the pluck foam is the size to hold the battery stable if you don't have a separate case for batteries.

Yeah it's hard sided case but I really really love it for carrying my supplies for a weekend out.

u/namey_o_name · 1 pointr/Goruck

I believe this is the one I have, except mine is blue. The link says this one is crush proof too. I know mine has definitely been treated roughly.

It definitely adds a little bulk, but I find it big enough to store things you definitely don't want to get wet (i.e. phone, batteries, electrolyte tablets, advil, etc.)

u/mithikx · 1 pointr/Android

This may not be the best solution, but you can get one of those small waterproof Pelican or Otterbox type cases. Obviously you can't use it while it's in the case but it'd survive dropping in the pool or from a standing height like when on a bike.

Alternatively you can get a water proof pouch such as this or this, you can get this and the pelican for added safety, or try and squeeze a traditional phone case in to the pouch.

u/Bones_IV · 1 pointr/pics

It should be laminated and the contents put in one of these.

u/U_Breathing_Manually · 1 pointr/saplings

Before you buy your bud the grower dries and cures it for weeks, so there is very little water in the bud, so you'll be fine.

Also I would suggest buying a pelican case ( to store your bud, lighter and papers and stuff, they're completely airtight so your mom won't smell it

u/mattcofer · 1 pointr/nexus6

A Pelican case would do the trick.

Specifically something like the 1040 case. $15 on Amazon

u/cubility · 1 pointr/trees

Pill bottles are pretty airtight and don't smell too much for me, but i mostly use them for joints or baggies.

As far as grinders, pipe, etc., a waterproof case like this is extremely smell-proof and comes in many different sizes. I even saw a walmart brand case like that for pretty cheap in their camping aisle recently.

u/Diotima245 · 1 pointr/Surface

You could get a small pelican hardcase like the one's used for small cameras. Check out the 1040 mini..


I used to use this one in the military with my camera on deployments.

u/LittleGreenNotebook · 1 pointr/bugout

Pelican makes small sizes of their worldwide famous cases. Waterproof, crush proof, and dust proof.

I own two. One for electronics and passports, and one for my med kit so nothing gets wet, torn or broken.

u/xftwitch · 1 pointr/EDC

The band across the middle holding the pens and tools is elastic. Two of them, actually. There's also a Molle grid on the back of the pouch. (Not elastic)

If you're looking for a case to do foam, I'd recommend the pelican cases

u/greshe · 1 pointr/cycling

If I'm carrying my ruck while riding, I'll place it in one of these. Otherwise, I'll wrap it in a small towel to keep it from bouncing around and put it in an empty storage bottle. I use the Tacx Tool Tube because my iPhone 6 fits pretty well in it.

u/Gotenks0906 · 1 pointr/buildapc

How does this black one look, or maybe this solid aluminum one.

u/40minutesto5 · 1 pointr/StonerEngineering

This kind of goes against the 'engineering' aspect of this sub, but I bought a case like this a couple years ago for my tube. It's fairly small, it's probably 4" wide across the base and less than 16 inches tall, but this case (or one similar) is absolutely perfect for carrying and protecting glass. It has foam padding on the inside that is a bunch of connected square foam pads, so it's very easy to cut a design that will snugly fit your piece. I also was able to cut out separate slots for my bowls, downstem, grinder, and pill containers.

Maybe you have a box or something that would fit your glass, and all you'd need is to find some foam to fill the inside.

u/mad_hatter_md01 · 1 pointr/magicTCG

When I started to get overrun (get it) with decks, I started putting them in the 2 sided card boxes. When that wasnt enough, I upgraded and went all Kaiba and got me one of these (Metal Briefcase). That started to eventually break due to the amount of stuff I carried with me so I got upgraded to the best one I've got so far (Metal Lock Box). This thing is wonderful and holds not only all my 20+ decks but also my trade binders. Just dont try to drag it up stairs.

u/mauigreen · 1 pointr/boardgames

really affordable would be to just use plano cases. you could even get some craft foam and line the storage bins in the plano cases! for a little more money, these type of metal storage cases with pluckable foam are neat and not bad on price:

u/AlexKnolly · 1 pointr/Gunpla

Ever tried something like this? It comes with diced foam inserts so you can rip them out and essentially make a "custom" foam case lining.

u/Brostafarian · 1 pointr/hookah

grabbed it off Amazon, here. The diced foam is really nice and lets you do just about anything you want as far as organization goes

u/Ringtailed79 · 1 pointr/magicTCG

I'm looking for a better way to transport 15ish decks at a time to and from events.

I'm currently using a standard backpack and tossing the plastic deckboxes in it, but it's ruining the deckboxes and it can be frustrating trying to find one particular deck.

After a couple of brief amazon searches, this looks promising

How are other people carting large amounts of decks around?

u/Vestrati · 1 pointr/Warmachine

I sometimes keep valuable things in a Pelican 1060. I try to keep it out of plain sight when I'm on the field.

u/alaskaj1 · 1 pointr/CampingGear

It sounds like what you want is a pouch like this. I have a similar one for my phone but it's more for splash protection and just in case I drop it in the water, I couldn't say how effective these type pouches would be actually submerged.

I have a small pelican 1060 case that I usually store my phone and keys in. Again, i haven't dunked it but i would trust it a little more than the phone pouches for keeping things dry (I would trust something like the pelican 1120 even more) But it's not as handy and easy to carry as the pouch.

Done. All under $1500 (when I did the math it came out to ~$1400 for all of this). And you can even buy a cheaper bag or use one you already own if you so choose. Or a different brand of tripod. I just chose that one because it can fold up compact and it's pretty light so it's easy to travel with.

Lowepro Slingshot 202 DSLR Sling Camera Bag

This is the model that I have. Let me know if you're interested.

u/imperialka · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

Your link shows the tripod as unavailable. I found it on amazon which seems to be the same one for $150.

How does the ball head work? I've never used a tripod before and want to ensure I can easily turn the camera in all angles/degrees possible.

Also, will this fit on the side of my lowepro sling bag?

u/YoderinLanc · 1 pointr/photography

I'm not sure why everyone is pointing you towards Pelican, especially for a first bag. Great bags, but they're pretty hardcore.

I bought a Lowepro Slingshot 202 AW for my first bag and its a great bag. Great protection, plenty of room for gear, super quick access to your camera, and it even has the pull out cover for inclement weather. This was my primary bag until a month ago, but I still use it if I don't need to take all my gear.

u/MrMushroomMan · 1 pointr/photography

Possibly a camera bag, or if she likes to collect cameras you could always pick up a fairly decent working film one for ~100-200 or often times less if you look harder. Twin lens reflex cameras are always pretty sexy. I got a yashica-mat for around 100 dollars (if you care to see it). Or maybe a reflector if she does a lot of portrait work

Edit: I have a Lowepro SlingShot 202 AW, I like it but I hear mixed reviews from other people. I'm a big guy and I do a lot of walking around/trudging through foresty areas and I've never had a problem with comfort, size, or moving around like others have.

I have a Lowepro Slingshot 202 which is great cause it holds all my stuff including a battery grip attached to the camera.

If you want a camera that can do all of that stuff - get a GoPro. If you don't want a GoPro, I think your best option is to get a camera and a pelican case. I'm referring to something like this.

u/Sagaritu · 1 pointr/vaporents

Me personally though, I bought a Pelican 1120, then cut the foam inserts to fit the solo, the straight stem, a grinder, and a couple of small containers for bud. It's super sturdy and sealed so that no smell leaks when it's closed.

Im not sure the dimensions of the Rodecaster Pro but maybe a case like these Pelican cases? The foam on the inside kind of pulls out so you can fit what you need into it nice and snug. Im sure there are less expensive types of these cases as well, but perhaps this can be a starting point?

When you said the largest micro case were you referring to the Pelican 1120? That is the one I have my eye on now, the 1200 would for sure work but I think the 1120 should be able to fit everything well.


u/Weft_ · 1 pointr/gopro

Thanks /u/lamic

I looked through your post and recommendations, it looks awesome! I know I really should wait for the Hero5 but I'm not sure if I can wait.

I started to put a list of things I want/need into a spreadsheet, to start looking at Price. I have Amazon Prime so I'm thinking about ordering everything through Amazon.

Can you take a quick look through my list and see if everything checks out and if I missed anything for "Basic" operations? Then could you make any more recommendations, or let me know what my next purchases should be?

  • GoPro HERO4 SILVER- $338

  • Memory Card Lexar 64GB- $35, Looks like the cheapest one between Sandisk Extreme and Lexar, Lexar currently is the cheapest on Amazon

  • Batteries - Wasabi Power Battery (2-Pack)- $22, Read a few reviews and people said they like these batteries a lot. Should give me enough juice and let me know how long I can record with, until I'm completely dead.

  • Protection Lens - $7 I really just need to lens protector, in the reviews people are saying some parts don’t fit the Hero4 only the Hero3. Or should I put the $20 version off the actual GoPro site?

  • GoPro The Tool$4, Like you requested and reading some comments it looks like it would be worth it.

  • A basic Card Reader - $7, did a quick google search on best card readers this one popped up for best for it’s price.

  • SANDMARC® Pole - $40, Looked up some reviews and people tend to like this one. It seems like is always recommended to have some kind of stick or holdable mount to start off with. Also could you go into a little more detail about mounting the GoPro?

  • Pelican Case -$25 I like the idea of it being waterproof and I like to be organized with my stuff. So this looks like a perfect fit. And it will be an awesome case to travel with.

  • Kingston 5-in-1 Mobile Companion - $35 I was watching some videos and it seems like this could be a cool little gadget to have. I would mostly use it for “mobile uploads to Hard Drives”. Working in IT I know how important it is to have backups, and this will let me get around bringing a laptop to the resort and other stuff. This is the video I’m referring too that shows you how to upload to a HD with out a computer.

    So with everything in my cart I’m sitting at $488 which is with in my budget.

    I’m still reading about the remote. That might be something we add down the line. I think I’ll be pretty content with just my phone app or getting the “waterproof touch screen” case cover too.

    Do you think this is a good setup? Will this get me going? Do you have any recommendations, or anything that I should add or not buy yet?
u/Stoppablemurph · 1 pointr/SteamController

Thanks for the heads up.
For those of us who would prefer a simpler Amazon link.
(They have several nice colors of these cases. Just search "Pelican 1120". They're definitely nice looking.)

Edit: Not sure how great they'd be for fitting in a backpack with a laptop though.. Would be curious to see pics of one in the wild.

I have a hard case for my Mavic but I wanted something easier to carry around. Got this bag: and it fits the Mavic plus accessories (three batteries, home and car charger, spare props) very nicely. I used the foam that came with the extra batteries to make them fit a bit more snugly.

u/Barking_at_the_Moon · 1 pointr/Beginning_Photography

I'm in your league as a big guy but have more gear to store/lug. Most of my shooting is sports/action or nature/macro stuff with the occasional family portrait at holidays. I'm definitely an amateur. For most of my shooting, I rely on four basic styles of totes:

  • I use a wrist strap. I don't own this particular one but something very similar. I don't much like neck straps - they're too loose when I'm moving to keep the camera secure and in the way when I'm not moving. When I first bought one of these, I was surprised at how often I used the plate/stand that attaches to the bottom of the camera.
  • For a single camera with an everyday lens: DSLR holster I don't own this particular one but something very similar.
  • For a little more gear but still small: DSLR gadget bag I own and use this bag.
  • For a day spent shooting: DSLR backpack I own and use this bag.

    I've got a couple of cross body sling packs that I've never liked - they always seem to be in the way or bouncing around - so they've ended up stuffed in a corner somewhere or holding the small bits of loose camera crap that seems to accumulate like dust bunnies.

    When/if you get to the point that you're hauling lights &c around, I've found that most of the time a simple (and long/huge) duffel bag is the easiest solution.
u/wolfcry0 · 1 pointr/PanasonicG7

I've been extremely impressed with this bag:

Fits my GX85 with a lens on it, 2 extra lenses, full size flash and wireless links, misc filters and cables, and an extra wrist strap, with room left over.

The smaller size might be good if you just want to carry the camera and a lens.

u/agentrandom · 1 pointr/Android

The Hasselblad Moto Mod got poor reviews. At least those that I read. The reality is that a DSLR or mirrorless camera can capture far superior photos due to a much larger sensor. To add that to a phone (addon or otherwise) means not only a lot of extra bulk and cost, but a bulky lens. You may as well be carrying a dedicated camera at that point.

It's not as bad as you may think. I travel a lot and all my camera gear fits into this small bag that doesn't take up much room in my hand luggage on flights. The total cost for a 35mm lens and budget DSLR for me was £300, though I also carry a 55-300mm telephoto lens for wildlife shots. The body, lenses, spare batteries and a GPS addon (budget DSLRs don't tend to have that) all fit into that bag. It may look bulky, but easily fits into even Wizz Air's small hand luggage allowance and leaves plenty of room. When walking around, it's just a small bag on my shoulder. Without the second lens, I could use a smaller bag still.

My Pixel has more smarts than my Nikon, but the DSLR can capture far superior images.

u/Spifferiferfied · 1 pointr/photography

Hello all. I recently got back from a vacation where I took a ton of pictures. I usually swapped between my [normal camera bag] ( and a simple sling.

But I found myself wishing I had something a bit more in the middle. A small case for just my camera without all my gear, but still protecting it so I don't have to worry as much about it banging around a little bit.

I've been looking at this case from Timbuk2, does anyone have any thoughts on this one, or suggestions of another like it?

For a size comparison, I shoot with a D750. Most of the time I'm walking around with it I'll be using my 50mm, but my only other lens currently is a 24-85mm.

Unanswered question from the previous megathread

Author /u/flyhigh141 - (Permalink)

I’m looking for a 20-30L camera backpack!

I currently have the Lowepro Photosport 200 AW , but it doesn’t hold all my gear + adventure gear anymore. I need something bigger.

My gear includes Canon 7D2, 3x lenses (one 70-200 tele), Mavic Air + controller, assorted adventure gear/ layers. I’d tend to want more space than less if given a choice.

I’ve looked into Lowepro’s ProTactic 350 AW and 450 AW . I really like it’s rugged and tactical design. The 450 seems a little too big since I like being able to keep my backpack between my legs on buses/ cars/ planes. Will the 350 accommodate a similar size? Should I go with a bit of extra room in the 450?

I’ve also looked into F-Stop’s 32L Lotus , and Kashmir 30L . Having already purchased the Medium ICU makes these an easier purchase. My concern is that they might be too big to travel with easily. What are people’s thoughts on the company and design of these two?

What other factors should I consider in a bag? What other bags or companies should I look at?

Anything helps! I’m trying to purchase NOW during these cyber Monday sales so anything helps!!

u/PooTommy · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

My current bag (which I absolutely love) is the AmazonBasics DSLR Bag. I've had it for over a year now and it's still in great condition, even after taking it for many hikes and beach trips. My only problem with it now is that I am running out of space as it is a kind of small bag.

Pros: Cheap, good camera and lens storage, has a tripod holder on the side, it's well organised

Cons: Small size, doesn't look that great.. Honestly, these are the only two cons I can think of, and they are both subjective.


If you think this could be a problem for you, there's also the bigger AmazonBasics DSLR and Laptop Bag. I haven't tried this bag, but I assume it is very similar to the smaller one (besides size, obviously).

I've also heard many good things about Lowepro 450AW.


I recently backed the Boundary Errant on Kickstarter. It's due to arrive around November, but I purchased this bag as an "all-rounder" bag so I could start carrying my camera everywhere with me, such as Uni, as it has an optional camera insert. It's a little pricier but I believe it will be a bag that can last for ages.


u/CaliforniaBurrito · 1 pointr/photography

I use a couple of bags -

  • Lowepro ProTactic 450AW - Large, fits a 15" MBP, a couple of bodies, lenses and room for flash and other goodies. You could reorganize this space to accomodate for books and school supplies. I've loaded it up with three bodies, six lenses, and a MBA and it's still super comfortable to wear.

  • Tenba DNA 13 - Great messenger style bag. This is my daily carryall bag for work. I can fit my MBA 13", two bodies and two lenses easily. Looking back I wish I would have went with the 15" model for when I upgrade to a 15" MBP.

  • The Everyday Messenger - Have not received this yet from the Kickstarter campaign but it's due to come in before Christmas. Bought this messenger to replace my DNA 13.

    Lowepro makes a smaller version of the one I listed, you should locate one locally and see if it fits your needs - I really like it.

I think it's something like this and you can just pick the little squares out to make the harps slide in vertically.

I got a [cheap musical instrument storage box - SRA Cases Aluminum Hard Case with Foam Insert, Black, 18.1 x 13 x 6 Inches] ( for $30 (kinda like a pelican but much cheaper and a bit smaller) and I store it, the controllers and cables in there when I'm not using it.

Maybe just get a generic Pelican case, and a foam insert and cut it yourself? I'm pretty sure the one above would be too small, but larger pelicans are easy enough to find.

Looking into a bag that I can use for hiking across the New England region....and I guess other locations in the future when I start to venture out.

I was thinking of getting the following below, but, I'm not very versed in the bag accessories world for the Sony A7iii and wasn't sure if there is something else out there that may suit me better. I primarily like to shoot portraits, landscape, architectures, and urban/street. Keen to get into astrophotography as well. I would want a bag where I can easily access my camera along with an attached lens and have the ability to store 2 additional lenses as well. Everything else on top of that is extra.

Edit: Also, I want to get a fast lens for portraits and was wondering if I should get the GM f1.4 85mm or the newer GM f1.4 24mm.

I imagine the 24mm could serve me well for astro as well but not sure how well it would do against portraits. Any thoughts?
