Carry-on OR Check-in? in Shooting Technique, Workflow and Editing Posted January 25, 2010 I should've taken a pic of it.... wish I'd have thought to do that. Busted out the P&S.... It's a mess now because my next trip is a road trip to FL, so I pack differently. (can take more stuff) I started by pulling most of the dividers out of the case The 8in dome was toward the bottom of the case on it's side near the cutout groove where the telescoping handle assembly is fitted to the case. I have a neoprene port cover and the side of the case is padded so as long as I was the one handling the bag or it was on it's back there was no stress on the dome. I angled it so that the shade was at a 1oclock/7oclock position so less strain on the cases zipper. I am moving to some more compact strobes too so hopefully next overseas trip I'll not be quite so crammed. I made sure to watch whomever was searching my luggage and offer when I saw them struggling to get everything back in place. Saved us all a headache.
