    Use small camera bags I'm sure you already have inside a carry on regular suitcase with handle and wheels.
    Save your money for the cuisine and film.


    happy traveling..

    When I travel, I pack my camera and gear in the case I plan to use at my destination. Usually it is a shoulder stap bag or a small back pack. I then put that bag, along with film, a few magazines, books etc. into a standard pilot case for carry on to the airline. The pilot case stays in the hotel room with my extra film and I carry only the gear I plan to use that day on location.

    I was in Calumet today picking up a few supplies, and browsing the cases, and I noticed a really nice wheeled case from Kata that might be what you want. It was surprisingly light compared to similar cases, and they seem well designed and protective. I didn't write down the model number I was looking at, but I checked over at www.kata-bags.com , and I think it was OC-84 , definitely one of the OC-series cases.

    Ended up going with the ThinkTank Case. Delivery was quicker from the US than from Sydney to Perth!! Nice case and I'm looking forward to an "organised" travel. Also a lighter alternative to my much loved Pelican case, on other suitable assignments.

    It's not a camera case but I fitted a RZ and a couple lenses with room left over. Even an 8x10 fits.

    I used lens wraps and bubble wrap but it wouldn't be that hard to stick foam in it.

    Airline legal. Light.

    Everything fits fine, but I see you've made your decision. Hope it does the trick!

    Good choice Nicole. I have this bag and it's terrific. The hidden cable lock is useful as is the combo lid lock. Try and get the low dividers so you can fit a laptop inside the case. Be careful loading it up as it can get rather heavy which will cause no end of headaches at the check in.

    Thanks David, I'm very happy with the ThinkTank so far.

    Nick, bubble wrap is a great option! I made a bubble wrap satchel for my son to take one of my cameras on school camp with him. Well, I needed some sort of buffer for the poor little bugger to try and make it back to me safely in one piece. I'm talking about the camera!

    Thank you canuhead. The inserts weren't snug enough for me so I've replaced them with foam, same as the Pelican case I use. This has reduced the weight a little.

    Uh oh, Nicole. I checked the webpage, and when I looked for their different configurations, the page explained how many DSLRs the bag would fit. So, maybe it won't work too well for your analog gear.

    Well, I'm too late for this thread. I was going to recommend you look into Kata for carry-on baggage: http://www.kata-bags.com I have the R-102 backpack. Holds my Hassey, two lenses and my laptop! Work and play in one bag. Fits under the seat.

    Regards, Art.
