I just purchased my first DSLR housing and a couple of ports. Nauticam NA-D810 with 105vr port and 230mm Nauticam dome port for my 16-35vr. I have dual YS-D1 strobes, and a Fishlite focus light. I am stunned by the size of that dome port! Once I got used to it, I pulled out my Thinktank Airport International V2.0 roller bag to see if there was a way to pack this gear and keep it out of my suitcase. I'm sure I'm not the first person to wonder how to pack that massive dome port. IF I remove two ball mounts from the housing I can probably stand it up in the deep end of the bag. Then I could (barely) fit the dome port in the other 2/3rds of the bag, but other than some small and light accesories, nothing else is going in that bag. That would leave me with arms, strobes, macro port and dome extensions to carry elsewhere, plus my lenses. Lenses can go in a waist bag, no problem. Alternatively I can pack the dome port in a suitcase and (probably) get everything else in the roller bag. What's the answer here? I really don't want to check any glass into an airplane belly, but I don't see much choice. I absolutely don't want an additional Pelican case or checked bag. I already travel with two full suitcases, much of which is dive gear. Anybody got pics of a packed backpack with housing and (big) dome port?
