    Off to Miami

    In next couple weeks I will be traveling to Miami to meet friend of mine and his sail boat. Sail around to the Florida keys and then sail over to Cuba for couple weeks later go to Bahamas and back to Miami. Be back in March.
    My question is if someone could suggest what cameras should I take?
    My snap shooter is coming but for B/W I was thinking My Hassy? or should I be brave and take my Crown Grafic? Any input is going to be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Greg

    Also would like to ask if Lowepro Knapsack would be considered as carrion language? Or is it to big? I can put in my 4X5 and my Hassy.

    Thanks Greg

    Most of the airline websites have size information for carry-ons.
    Note that if any of your flights are on the smaller "regional" jets the overhead space is tiny at best and you must check anything that won't fit at the gate. I would avoid carrying any camera bags that can't fit under the seat if you are on any regional jet flights.

    I'd travel light and small, especially on a sailboat but depending on size. Skip the Crown. A P&S and/or Hassy would do it but I'd probably forget the b&w unless in the compact.

    Thanks Wayne.
    I have looked at some really nice photographs from Cuba. That's the reason I would like to take B/W film camera. You just gave me an idea. I'll take my 6X9 Bessa folder.
    That's light.
