you might have a problem with your tripod though. it can be considered as a weapon (can be used to bash heads). so they might ask you to check that in. just something to think about on your trip.
is using a digital camera that works ...
i always bring my Kata dr467 + my Fancier tripod on board..i dnt use any tripod bag..since i dnt have and my tripod is quite big...
and so far there is no problem once i went to Thailand Australia Indonesia

anyone just took jetstar budget airline recently? can strap dslr around neck throughout the flight? cos if can i will not be bringing any bag for the dslr..TIA
If I remember correctly the Tawain passenger refuse to put her bag below seat or in the overhead cabin and insist on holding on her belongings.
The reason why the cabin crew must request passengers to put the baggage under seat is for safety to avoid anyone will be tripped over in the event of emergercy evacation. This goes for the same the request to have all windows shade pushed up during take off and landing also.
talking about travelling, have you checked if the country or place you're going allows tripod? New York, London and some asian countries are banning erecting a tripod on their street.
For jetstar, you can strap it on your neck the entire flight. But you need to weigh it and put it under the seat or top of compartment during take off and landing. PS, I'm using a Think Tank Digital holster 30 v2 when travelling with d700/70-200vr2 and leave my 35mm in my clothes bag. The holster can fit under the seat with no problem, and I always shoot the window view landscape during the entire flight with no problems at all. But of course, it all depends on the airline crew. If you take our local SIA...all the auntie stewardess will nag at you.
the Manila jetstar so nice one, got alot of chiobu stewardess...
No worries sure clear.. I brought 1 luggage on board with my 6 million dollar on board. No one said anything.. just keep it below will do during take off and landing.
from the replies..it seems like i have to bring a bag to put while on the flight le? cos not allow to strap on neck when taking off/landing?
I strapped my DSLR on my neck during take-off and landing during my flight to HK with Tiger Airways... Maybe it really depends flight to flight.
I have not met with any issues so far. But I heard Taipei airport is very very anal about hand carrying tripods. They will force you to check it in.
Hope this helps.
Depending on which airline you're flying, but most carriers let you take a camera bag in addition to your normal carry on.
Like what most people have said, stow it away under the seat in front of you.
Yeah airlines will let u carry cam bag into cabin. I'm been doing it for donkey times. No question asked.Originally Posted by Shibari
And I always keep it in the overhead storage. No issues at all. Cam never break. Don't worry so much.
Personally I find hanging camera on neck looks silly and ppl will think u are a show off, want to tell whole world that u got this camera
