I bought this Pelican style case for my Pentax 6×7. I never thought I’d ever want to use a case like this for a camera. But when I thought about traveling with my 6×7 the idea of it banging around in the back of a car with a bunch of other suitcases in just a regular camera bag did not sit well with me. If something were to happen to my Pentax 67 it’s not like I could just got to B&H or some other camera store and buy a new one. With that in mind I figured a hard case like this would be a good idea.
First I looked into a Pelican case and it looked like the model 1650 would be about right. Then I saw the price. Retail price from the Pelican site is $485. Canadian dollars! Once I saw that, that idea quickly came to an end. Although Pelican was out, I still needed a case. I did some looking around and found this awesome case by “Maximum” which I bought from a store called “Canadian Tire”. Just so happens the case was on sale at the time, so I got it for pretty cheap, around $140 if I remember correctly. The regular price of this case is $250, so it’s nearly half the price of the Pelican version.
I actually like the Maximum case better than the Pelican because the clips are easier to open then the Pelican clips. I have always found the Pelican clips to be a real paint to open and close (I have a smaller Pelican I use for a strobe). Anyhow, I wasn’t planning on writing this much haha. Check out the video and see how good the case looks for yourself.
