My Story:
There is nothing worse in the world of a photographer or videographer than to have your equipment damaged or ruined. My brother knows this first hand. He had his $5k camera sitting in a soft case in the back of a boat while out on a duck hunting trip. The boat was anchored off away from his hunting area and the wind was blowing hard. Well, the waves smashed at the stern of the boat and eventually flooded it. The boat sunk to the bottom and thought it was only about 4 feet deep it was enough to completely flood everything inside. My brother’s camera was ruined along with his flash, light meter, lenses, and shotgun mic. This was one of those learning experiences that you only need once in a lifetime.
Pelican has long been a shining star in the world of waterproof protective cases. They have a fantastic reputation that is backed up by great customer service. Over the years we have used many different Pelican cases and as our equipment needs change so too do the types of cases we need. I was very happy to have the opportunity to test and review the Pelican 1560 LFC Case.
The technical features of this case are not unlike those of other Pelican cases aside from some really cool upgrades. The LOC lid organizer is a great addition to hold all those little items that never seem to have a great home, chargers, batteries, cords, and whatever else you can fit in there. There is even a laptop sleeve that is simply fantastic for keeping your entire filming set up all together.

The Pick ‘N’ Pluck foam is perfect for anything and everything you want to store in your Pelican 1560 as it can form to fit any shape.

The pressure equalization is great for safe storage on flights and for long drives over mountain passes. The stainless steel components insure that rust will not be an issue. This case is built from an extremely tough Polypropylene Shell that will protect your equipment in the harshest of conditions and from bumps, bruises, scratches, or falls. It’s like wrapping your gear in armor. The chemical resistant, corrosion resistant, airtight, watertight, and dust proof seal is fantastic and works flawlessly.
For those who like to travel the Pelican 1560LFC also has a great handle and set of rolling wheels for hauling your expensive gear with you around airports and hotels. Camera equipment can be quite heavy and this great feature is definitely something that you will enjoy.

We have used this Pelican 1560LFC Case in temperatures from -20F to 70F and in mud, dust, rain, snow, and just about anything else you could think of. The Pelican 1560LFC followed up for the 2016/17 waterfowl season and it certainly pulled its weight. It was great to have all our filming gear in one case and to know it was going to be protected. I would absolutely recommend this product to any photographer/videographer who is looking for a way to keep safe and transport their valuable gear. Add the fact that Pelican offers a Lifetime Warrantee on their products and you really can’t beat this great company or their products.

What could be done better?

Honestly I think Pelican hit a homerun with this great case. The best thing is that if you find this to be too large for your needs Pelican offers a wide variety of other options to fit almost any need. You can buy with confidence as this is truly a great company with a great product.

I give the Pelican 1560LFC Case a rock solid 5 stars.
