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.

hi there shouldn be a problem I handcarried my camera with 2 other lenses as well. hand carried my ibook as well but with recent cases of laptops catching fire I wonder if they still allow it.

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.

thanks Fisheye, am not bringing laptop so is fine :)

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).
