In Topic: Travelling with full SLR set up in hand luggage, Any issues?

06 October 2015 - 02:00 PM

I am used to travel with my photo gear as follows:

1 Loewepro Vortex 300 Photo backpack as carry-on containing:

Weight is 18-20 Kilos


as checked baggage inside a torn suitcase containing:Weight 23-30 Kilos


triplecheck that your flights allow more than 8 kilo carry-on as here in Europe 8 kilo and less than IATA  carry-on size limit becomes more and more normal


Basically you are prepared to pay a lot of money for extra baggage  :crazy:


As you wrote it's normal that the maximum carry-on weight allowed is 5/8 kg here in Europe.

The worst company is Blue Panorama in Egypt: 5 kg carry on and 15 kg checked. you cannot buy extra weight in advance.

About 110g at a guess


Really? Is it aluminium or steel?

While I do not know which camera (Canon or Sony) was used in the natural light shallow shots, CC applied seems very close to the Dustin video mentioned above. Great video!

Rule #1: tape all writings on the lens :)


Someone just write them with a black marker. I prefer covering them with removable tape and then write the tape with the marker.

So if one day I will sell my lens it will be intact.



I used a Sony 10-18mm lens and it's worse than that: all the front ring is silver glossy!!!
