    The "great ideas" you are looking for are all nonsensical hassles. People with actual travel experience are telling you not to be paranoid and just enjoy your trip. You, however, are too stubborn to listen to experience and obviously prefer listening to fellow kiasi, inexperienced travelers who treat a camera like tofu.
    it's a newbies corner for crying out loud. Pls go read all ur post n tell me which one sounds like an advise. So Pls... Take ur 10k posts attitude and stay out of the newbie corner. There is a difference in what u say and how u say..
    Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photos..~ ;)

    I kept my CPL on my lens out of convenience

    It totally ruined a whole series of wedding photos I took.
    Thankfully I was only shooting that wedding because I wanted to shoot my flowers. (venue decorator here)

    Here's my advice: read the stickies in the newbies corner, specifically the rule about searching before you post. Then you could have saved yourself a ton of time.

    are you going for a tour, and bring along a camera?

    or

    is it your camera going for a tour than you tag along?

    That's why I asked you why you leave it on. Take it off when you are done shooting.

    Not sure if that point got through your over-sensitive skin.

    Here my plan to Take care of the equipment. Ziploc bag + a camera body sleeve. Chuck into my day bag when not out. Everything in hand carry on plane.

    Any great ideas or tips to protect or Take care of the camera n lens?
    pls share.

    Additional info. Personal travel insurance already bought for the year, covers inclusive up to 2k
    I always carry a rain jacket but no umbrella.

    Any other ideas on maintenance on the equipment while on trip would be nice too. Would love to hear ideas n thoughts on those who travel frequent too.


    Ps. Forum trolls looking to seeking attention and throw one liners, your comments are more welcome else where.
    Bro, coincidentally I just came back from Bkk. I just dumped my 5d2 and lens into a small camera bag and in turn dumped that into my carry all. When I went out to the streets to shoot, I just brought along my small camera bag. No ziplock, no rain cover... Never Kena muggers, rain (anyway plenty of buildings ard to wait out the rain). So, just relax and enjoy your trip. Be vigilant but dun be paranoid, else u will spend more time worrying than shooting. Enjoy!

    Dun take it so badly. Rashkae's way of advice is different. He makes u think rather than spoon feed u.. "Tell me and I will forget. Teach me and I will learn. Involve me and I will remember."

    I can't chimp. only slept 5hrs in the last 72. My camera has more battery energy than I. (almost had traffic accident en route to my workshop to de-kit)

    okay..here's my take...

    when u enjoy a trip...do u wanna feel the joy of being there (without snapping pics here n there..eats..drinks..shops..) or u wanna start shooting?

    i dun travel much to be honest..but when i do..well..in terms of taking care of gears..is too..way out for me..basically for me is smartphone on but non roaming..meaning to say..just snap pics..
    and my camera always ready..cos..u never know that moment u gonna miss..just snap..the ziplock bag thingy..is really no need...

    thats my take la...

    and my camera n smartphone still working wor..so yeah..depends on how u enjoy e trip..worry about ur gears getting spoilt...or missing that moment...(say morning sunrise?)

    I always try to bring my 3M micro-fibre cloth, err it's like a kitchen towel/hanky
    Have used it draped on the camera when it's drizzling, wipe off all sorts of gunk, dries quickly
