    everything in the overhead compartment: lens, body, battery, etc in a bag ; my tripod and ballhead in another bag.

    first of all there'd be a camera bag, that should provide you some form of protection when you leave it in the overhead compartment

    Under the seat in front of me. I did it on a recent trip to Taiwan and was not told to put it up either.

    Easier and comfortable especially on long flight. But I would only feel safe when I am hugging my cam to sleep, unless the bag consists of 2 body, 3 lens, flash,,,,etc....etc

    Gosh.... I guess you travel without a passport too.

    An experience I witness.

    Was on flight to korea and when the plane landed, passengers was unloading their stuffs from the overhead compartment and one of my tour khakis realised that his bag was being "unloaded" as well !!!! Luckily he found out juz in time and screamed at that person. That guy still got the cheek to say " I tot it was mine "!!!!!!

    If the bag is able to fit under the seats I would prefer to do that. Use my legs to cover the bag when stewardess start checking before plane take off.

    I use fastpack 350, and I put it in overhead compartment, because sometimes they don't allow u to put loose thing even under the seat in front u. (SilkAir don't allow this one. everything should be inside overhead compartment). my friend hold his d700 in his hand and they just ask him to put it inside the bag "no loose thing with u on take off or landing" ^_^

    Body+1 lens in my hand (in short- to medium-range flights) if seated beside window-seat. You never know when u get to see a great scene - volcano/ sunrise/ sunset/ etc. outside the window depending on ur destination.

    Otherwise, everything goes above in the overhead compartment

    Tripod safely wrapped & packed & checked in, bcoz security in someplaces consider all these 'stick' like objects as potential weapons, and can object to getting it into the cabin.

    Hmm that's weird, no such policy on an SQ flight to taipei in late Dec...

    Kept my camera bag under the seat in front of me.

    I keep mine under the seat.

    Off Topic a bit.
    Is it ok for our cameras & lenses to pass tru the airport security x-ray machine? Cos I was told by the staff to put mine in a bag before passing tru the x-ray machine.
