    Should not be a problem in most airlines in Asia. In the US, they are more anal.

    You should have no problem getting through - its within their tolerance.

    No problem. By the way, your laptop doesn't count in the total check-in weight.

    No problem. Flew with notebook and camera bag before without being hassle.

    I try to have the notebook in a typical notebook bag, so that they know and allow within tolerance a second bag, usually for second bag I use a roller bag that will fit into the overhead compartment and pack my photobackpack inside.

    Then again the last time I tried that was beginning of the year, before all these bomb scare in the UK. Now they dont let you carry even toothpaste on in some countries, not sure what they will do.

    recently flew with notebook in camera bag, a mini trekker. no problem. in fact, bring along a separate notebook bag. in some custom, they require you to bring out the notebook before passing through their scanning....canada custom.

    Oh so that means the laptop bag wont be counted?

    I will be flying on SQ and Garuda Indonesia. In that case I should put my camera bag in another hand carry bag and throw some additional personal items inside and carry another laptop bag.

    Thanks for the info man.

    Generally it would not be a prob for you to carry both bags in.

    Sorry for the off topic but i got this question. Supposing you have a good luggage (those hard cover) would it be a problem if the camera is in the cargo bay of the plane?
