  • Anyone flown with gear recently?

    I'm about to fly out and I'm looking at a few camera bags as my carry on. I have 3 in mind but I'm not sure if they would meet the new size limits. Reviews and product descriptions say all 3 of these would pass, and a salesman at B&H said it shouldnt be a problem on the manfrotto 610. Has anyone had a problem with a bag that passed last year but not now?

    thanks for any replies.

    Ive flown with two Pelican 1510's before and had no problems. Often I use a 1510 for camera and then one of those photo backpacks for lenses as well.

      Same here. Does the camera go into the backpack or the Pelican case? I've always put it in the Pelican, but I have a job coming up in October where I may need to transport two cams with me.

        I have a Cinebags CB25 that I am very fond of. It does fit overhead and it carries a big camera -- in my case an Epic -- plus several lenses. It's very functional as a backpack and I can carry my rig for ten miles if needed. It's not rugged enough to check as baggage, but if you can keep it in the cabin it is very nice.

          I'm checking bmcuser in my hotel room after a flight. I can not recommend enough the Pelican 1510.

              Are you looking for something more like a backpack then or a sling bag?

                Backpack. Leaning toward the http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...kpack_pro.html . The dimensions are larger than the requirement but in the q&a a guy says it barely fits. Hate to spend the money to find out my bag will need to be checked and have all my shit broken. Ive had 2 fresnel lenses shattered inside a 1650 pelican case before.

                  Just flew to Germany (Berlin/Munich) in May - with all this stuff (see pic)

                  Didn't carry on a thing. Pelicans for everything with hard wood dividers and tonnes of foam. Locked everything with TSA approved luggage locks. Had a million tiny keys on my keychain.

                  Not a thing damaged - had an Ursa, lenses, BMCC, two 4ft kino banks, Ronin, and lots of other odds and ends.

                    You really can't under estimate the value of Pelicans. On my last shoot, we'd be travelling around with all that stuff in a van. We'd turn a corner and everything would loudly crash all around in the back. I don't even flinch - with the right dividers and foam, it's bullet proof.

                      We have 4 carry ons:

                      1- Pelican 1510 Interior: 19.75 x 11 x 7.6" (50.17 x 27.94 x 19.3cm) (LxWxD)

                      2 - Seahorse 920s Interior: 22.5 x 13.9 x 8.5" / 57.0 x 35.2 x 21.6 cm

                      Due to the slight size difference you can carry a railed, caged, bricked and 4x4 matteboxed 2.5, 4k or Pocket in the Seahorse. Just attach a handle and you are ready to go. I switched to the Seahorses for this reason.

                      1- Predecessor to the Low Pro Pro Trekker 650 AW. This will take a caged camera on rails with a small MB as well. If you can't roll try the Lowpro.

                      Lowpro also has a wheeled backpack which I haven't tried. http://store.lowepro.com/backpacks/p...-rl-x450-aw-ii

                      I fly rt from the USA to Argentina regularly.
