Hi guys, I'm Justin Z. I'm an independent Los Angeles film maker, and a freelance editor. I've been getting some basic questions including this one, how to store your DSLR into a case. Well I use basically what I find to be the safest, which is called a Pelican case. And it's not just my SLR I'm storing, it's my lenses, as well as the rest of my equipment. And a Pelican case is probably the best and the safest way to store your SLR cameras. I'll go ahead and show you. So this is the Pelican 1600 case. This guy is basically can survive fire. It has been tested under all kinds of strenuous conditions including water, stress, getting run over by cars, dropped from high distances, things like that. I wouldn't recommend it throwing it in water, I'm just saying that it would be great for that. So, go ahead and open up this guy. And it uses foam core both on the top and the bottom. It has the basically these little blocks that you can remove, and you can customize, so you can put all your equipment in different places. So I have my camera right here, I have a lens here, a lens here, a lens here, different lens caps and different filters, different equipment for keeping the lens and the camera clean. This is where I usually have my audio equipment, battery, more equipment to keep my lenses clean, storage like cards, different lens caps, basically whatever you need, you can customize, so you can put it all in this. Like I said, it uses really great foam core that is soft but sturdy, which makes for great shock resistance. This also helps with the shock resistance up here, and basically when you close it and latch it all together, it is water proof, desert proof, it is everything proof. So, if you wanna keep your stuff safe, this is what you go with. So that's pretty much all there is to it when it comes to storing your camera. If you go to a camera shop, you have a lot of options for yourself to pick out. Something that might be less expensive, or more convenient, but for me, it's all about safety, and that's why I picked the Pelican for my camera, and for my equipment. It's all there is to it, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
