TSA is implementing new rules. All electronics larger than a cell phone will need to be taken out of carry-on bags and placed separately in bins to be sent through the x-ray machines. This will include cameras, but does not apply to lenses, according to what I have read.
I am wondering whether this will apply to my Inon strobes. I need to decide whether to pack them in a manner where I can easily pull them out and place them into a bin. I would be interested in hearing what other people experience or learn about this. The new rule is being “rolled-out” over the next couple of months, so it may take a while to figure out if how this will be handled.
I thought about asking TSA, but I strongly suspect I would either have someone repeat the new rule to me and be unable or unwilling to go beyond that, or I would be told that which electronics have to be screened is discretionary with TSA people at the time and place in question.
