I was wondering how to take my camera with me to Egypt next month. I have just upgraded to a DSLR which weighs around 6kg, not to mention regulators, laptop etc etc. Having seen how luggage handlers treat the hold items, I do not want to put any of it in the hold, with the exception of strobe arms.
However the bag is still over the weight limit allowed (5kg) and I'm sure that a lot of you will have had to deal with this in the past and so I am interested to find out the best way around it. The airlines rules are 5kg in 1 bag.
I was planning on taking my camera out and putting it in a pocket, but it still means the housing would have to be weighed!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
