I’m wondering if anyone has suggestions about flying with photography gear.
Specifially I’m curious about how I can negotiate the whole carry-on luggage situation. I’d never consider packing my DSLR into my checked luggage, but I’m not sure how to squeeze my camera bag into my carry-on knapsack along with my bathroom caddy, documents and change of clothes.
I’m not taking a whole pro set-up with me. The camera bag itself is relatively compact, holding only the camera body with kit lens attached, battery charger and some lens filters. But I’ve only travelled with point-and-shoot and prosumer cameras before, both of which tucked easily into my carry-on knapsack.
I’d also like to take my tripod, which is relatively compact and has its own carrying case, but I guess that’d count as another peice of luggage…
Suggestions welcome. And if I’m missing something obvious that someone can point out to me, even better.
