In Topic: Inon Z-330 In Stock?

07 July 2018 - 11:11 AM

I would only order from a reputable vendor and place that deposit. It's going to be a long wait for it.. longer if you want to wait till they have 1

 

yes of course , the same for me : reputabel vendor is  a must !

 

The link  I posted  in my previous post  is  UWdigitalcamera  ( Japan ) :  I bought many time   from  them ( since 2007 ) without any problem .

 

About  INON Z330 :  I ordered  2 of them end of february and  receive  in just one week .  

All perfect .  (.... yes  japanise manual  ...  but  all the fuction are the same old  INON Z240 )

In Topic: Gorontalo ( Indonesia ) April 2018 - trip report

Very nice photos.  I have a question for you regarding Garuda.  I'm heading to Lembeh in October for the first time ever, and I'm flying Garuda to/from Jakarta.  What are their exact policies regarding carry-on luggage?  Are carry-on's weighed?  If so, do they force you to check them if heavy?  Or merely pay an extra fee?  I typically travel with a light back pack with my cameras/lenses, and a heavy (but appropriately sized external dimensions for all US carriers) carry-on Pelican hard shell case with my housing, strobes, etc etc etc.  This has worked for any flights I've ever been on for numerous destinations in the Caribbean. Garuda's website notes a 7kg weight limit for carryons.  Did it seem like they were actively checking weight on bags?  My Pelican case is way over 7kg.  All my valuable equipment are in padded compartments, and the case is hard (and can be locked), so I could theoretically check it, but it is my MUCH preferred option to keep it with me.

 

Any insight you can add would be helpful.  Thanks!

 

I flew  many many times with  Garuda  and  always  with  one Loewepro 200  with 2 camera , 3-4 lenses and  accessories  ( 7 Kg )  and  one ultralight sansonite trolley with housing , arms , 2 strobe , dome , wet lense , clamp , laptop  ( 12 Kg ) .  

I dont remember any weight control at check in .  Anyway  I usually take out  from trolly some equipment and put them in a photographic jacket  .... just in case ....

 

And with Garuda  you can have  as  chek in baggage    + 23 Kg  for diving equipment  on top  of  the  regular 20 Kg  .
