Taking the housing as carry-on
errbrr posted a topic in Shooting Technique, Workflow and EditingSome time ago I mentioned that I was using a basic backpack as carryon with a fully constructed camera & housing inside. Someone asked for photos and I never got around to taking them. Yesterday I was helping Dad work out how he is going to pack for an upcoming trip and took some photos. Behold - camera in housing, housing in back pack, within the carry-on size, and room to wedge three t-shirts (for padding) and a couple of strobes around it. I then take a shoulder bag/"purse" with laptop and back up drive, plus maybe a second lens. The only real drawbacks here are back pain after carrying it across the airport and the risk that someone at the airline will want to weigh your bag, and subsequently try and force you to check it. Having a ratty looking backpack has saved me from being selected for random weigh ins. The advantage is that you land at your destination with a camera in housing and all you have to do is plug the strobes in and jump in the water.
Think Tank Airport Accelorator backpack: ($180) shipped. The bag is in great condition. The only thing missing is the spare separator inserts that aren't currently in the bag. I've looked but simply can't find them. I can provide pictures of the separators that I have if requested if it isn't clear from the attached picture. I travelled with nearly my complete setup including laptop within this bag. The only thing that didn't fit well was my 2 handle tray which I always packed in a checked bag. I will accept paypal payment only and prefer to ship within the contential US. PM me if you have any questions.
