    Yeah... just came back from Australia end of Sept. Hand-carried my DSLR body with attached lens & flash unit. No prob with that. Originally wanted to bring tripod but didn't. Are you bringing your tripod? If yes, very likely have to check-in the tripod.

    thanks nyxx88, will be bringing tripod, and likely to check in with it in my lugage, cause is Carbon fibre and may not withstand banging.

    DSLR, lens & flash carried in a waist-pouch type of bag.

    I would like to know whether can bring tripod on the plane too. I will be going to Sydney in 2 weeks time as well, on an SQ flight .

    i brought along a crumpler bag to put the camera stuff. the tripod i literally handd carried. no case at all. my backpack was emptier than when i went there, so i put the tripod into my backpack to check in on my way back (on my own accord).
