Thread: Travel Restrictions & Camera Gear

  1. #1

    Question Travel Restrictions & Camera Gear

    I'm assuming that flying to the UK and US now... no hand-carry luggage? Anyone flying to these places soon and how are you storing/packing your camera gear to bring along?

    You can carry hand-carry baggage for flights terminating in UK. For transit to US, no hand-carry baggage is allowed only hand carry transparent plastic bags

    When they decide to use the same method on subways, dun think about travelling in the MRT without a transparent barang-barang bag.

    for flights from singapore to asian countries e.g. thailand, hk, china - is there any restrictions on hand-luggage?

    i can't imagine packing my beloved slr and lens in a box and trusting the luggage handlers to take care of them!

    should get Lowepro to redesign their bags already, using transparent PVC, no sponge, use air cushioning, meaning a lighter overall bag... limited super exclusive edition... Helium filled bag...

    anybody into making bags? any idea if its feasible?

    So now, we can no longer take pics from the plane's window?
    That's quite sad considering that sometimes the view can be very stunning.

    Confirm.
    It is in the newspapers today. ST.
    The days of hand carrying expensive cameras on flights are over.
    You can store camera in luggage.
    It can be checked in.
    Luggage can and do get lost. Or items stolen. Or sent mistakenly to another country (not the one you are touring).
    They are ALWAYS thrown around by fed-up overworked baggage handlers.
    If travelling to Indonesia and their customs staff check that you have an extremely expensive camera in the luggage, well you know what is likely to happen.
    Don't try putting in your $$$Gold M6 and mint $$$ lenses into checked-in luggage.
    From now on bring only extremely cheap and small cameras for tours.

    Your camera in check in luggage must be able to withstand the freezing teperatures!

    Alternatively: buy a new camera everytime you go travelling from the UK to the US :-).
    Or buy a new camera in the US, and sell before flying back.........or avoid going to the UK at all. Unless, we also can't bring hand carry luggage in other flights???


    I think this is all a scam of the camera producers to rigg up camera sales!

    Doesnt matter, you would have to make all cameras and camera equipment transparent aswell.

    Nope, they were going to conceal 2 liquids in beverages that when mixed together make an explosive. The detenator was hidden in an electrical device such as an ipod or handphone.

    If this level of alert sustains till the IMF/WB event to be hosted here nxt mth, there will be thousands of overseas visitors and journalists who will be in dire need of photographic equipment. Rental business eh, and perhaps they can outsource their photograhic needs to us! Anyone enterprising and resourceful enough to organise a consortium? Someone with contact with foreign press will be ideal.

    Nope, they will refuse you entry to the plane if you will not check such items in, IIRC.
