Hello, did a search here and nothing showed up so i'm starting a new thread.
I've never traveled with a full camera set up before, but in 16 hours, i'll be going to Europe for a year to study. With that i'm bringing pretty much all my camera stuff. It weights about 7kg in a beltpack. I also will be carrying a backpack with 2 laptops and external hard disk and other stuff. Which will be rather weighty.
Could i get some assurance/shared experienced from frequent fliers, do the airlines get anal and charge you extra for overweight handcarry? I'm flying emirates and they specified 7kg hand carry only... and thats already my camera bag weight. I'm rather concerned that I'd have to pay 400-500 more SG$ for the overweight charge, and i'm a poor student.
I'd appreciate any advice. Cheers~
