Hi. I am wondering how you guys safeguard your gears when you are onboard the plane?

I believed the camera body + lens will be with your side at all times or do you keep at the compartment above your seats ?


p.s *** if there's a thread regarding this topic will appreciate if can paste link here.


Tks.

I will put it at the compartment on top because it's much more safer/easier and comfortable?

Always in the overheads. Have flown many times with a tripod as carry on, though had grief trying to get one onto a domestic flight in vietnam.:think:

I mentioned before in another thread: all bags big or small can only be put overhead on a flight to Taiwan. I tried to put underneath the seats and the stewardress asked me to put it up.

In that case I must have been either very lucky, or the stewardess too busy to chap me...

Overhead compartment. I don't usually fall asleep on flights. Plus I put my bag such a way that one has to totally remove the bag from the overhead compartment before they can open the bag and grab the camera.

If you are sitting at emergency exit row, you cannot put anything under the seat in front of you, even if there is a seat infront of you.

Of course not seated there! Its a whole flight policy, everyone have to put all their bag overhead.

I keep mine in the landing gear compartment along with the mangled and twisted body of a stowaway jammed within the undercarriage. Alternatively If possible, I would select a seat with an access panel to the avionics bay or cargo hold hidden underneath the carpeting and dump it down there. :bsmilie:
