There is a wealth of learning material on line.  I provided links to some good resources in a similar thread here:

In Topic: Airlines/Airports with strict hand/cabin luggage rules

Yes, I have.  Never have I seen enforcement of weight limits for carry-on baggage on a domestic flight.  But maybe I am lucky, as my m4/3 system fits in what looks like a normal backpack.  Size is a different matter - maybe if I was using a Pelican hard case or a big Think Tank roller it would be different.  But when I see the stuff locals drag on board (two bags plus a purse or backpack plus a box of donuts is not uncommon), I'd be pretty unhappy if they stopped me with one bag. Just be nice, look normal, use an international size bag, and don't push your luck is my motto.

I just noticed your shot got picked for the Nat Geo Daily Dozen - congratulations!

Not quite.  I didn't have a ball adapter for the cold shoe, only a YS style adapter like this one, so no clamp and the strobe was directly on top of the port, pointed more or less straight ahead. 



Anyway, glad you liked the results!

In Topic: Is it safe?

Is it safe?  Maybe not 100%.  But where I live, it's either buy on line, wait for a trip out of the country, or do without.  I've had only good experiences buying from Wetpixellers, and all of my transactions have involved international shipping.  You can filter opportunities by judging the evidence about the seller and communicating thoroughly.  So I'll keep dong it.
