    I'm about to get a PDX10. Also will have a "normal" assortment of
    accessories (lenses, extra batteries, etc...) and am wondering which
    Pelican is good for me, i.e. what is the smallest size that will fit the
    camera and the gear?

    At this point I may also get a ME-66 shotgun mike, which likely won't
    fit in a small to medium Pelican, but I can get a separate case for it.

    Links to a page where I may buy them are:

    Which would you get? Not too big is what I'm thinking, big enough for a
    PD150, DVX100, etc... The Pelican 1200?

  2. Nah. The 1500 or 1550.
    Your going to need the room for filters, several batteries, a charger,
    eventually a zoom control, and don't forget the shock absorbing value of
    more foam. Not to mention, you'll have room for you microphone and cabling
    or wireless system.
    You can find them on ebay all day long at a good savings. Samy's is a good
    source too.

    Yes, I see that they are cheaper there. But I"m in Canada, so after
    shipping it'll be the same for me.

    What I was wondering is which one is the one for me. I was going to get
    the 1200, but I think Bill is right, I should get the 1400 or 1500.
    Likely the 1500.

    get the 1400 or 1500. the 1500 if you plan
    to have few accessories as well.

    i just got a used pelican 1500 on ebay for $45.
