Thread: Need help on camera bags or cases

    Default Need help on camera bags or cases

    Going for a 6 months photoshoot trip in the USA this end of March, I would be bringing all my camera's and lenses. 2 Bodies,
    16-35, 28-70, 70-200, 300 F2.8, 600mmF4. + 2 tripods with wimberly head.

    Will they allow that amount of gear to be hand carried inside the plane?
    Which bag to use?

    Thanks in advance.

    any bag as long as its allowed to be hand carried. I dont want to check in my gear for fear of being damage or lost.

    i doubt u can squeeze all ur gear in a LP 400aw... u would probably require a lowepro pro trekker at least... there are dimensions available.. maybe u can give the airline co..a call to check..hope this helps

    I was planning to use my Lowepro Commercial AW for all my gears + a duffel bag for the 600mm. So I just check in my Tripods..

    Any more suggestions will really help.

    Default No

    If u can't squeeze it all into one bag, the answer is no.

    Anyway, it's an interesting thing, read Michael Reichmman's passage about packing for his Bangladesh trip to see how a top landscape photographer deals with it.

    i heard that with the added security these days, you're going to have to check in your tripod.... i think some airlines view it as a possible weapon

    so probably plan your packing along those lines.
