How I Pack my Camera Equipment for Carry On Travel

Today the article will show how to pack camera equipment for carry-on travel. The author has been traveling quite a lot for work this year and has become a pro at packing camera gear. The author uses a carry-on suitcase and a handbag to bring all the necessary equipment onto the plane. Not checking in the camera equipment in a larger suitcase is important for safety reasons and to prevent breakage.

Packing the Suitcase

The equipment that needs to be packed includes two Canon 5d Mark Series 3 cameras, three prime lenses, a Sony a7s with a mic, a tripod, a 28mm lens, a DJI Mavic Pro drone, luma instant camera, 600 eh speed light, hard drives for editing, a MacBook, a Wacom tablet, mouse, memory cards, iPod Classic, notepad, noise-canceling earphones, and lots of batteries with cables.

The first step in packing is to put small items like hard drives and memory cards into the bottom ridge of the suitcase. Then, camera batteries and spare Sony batteries are placed in separate pouches. The lenses, camera bodies, and speed light are also carefully packed into different pouches. Spare clothes are used to fill in the remaining crevices to secure the equipment in place.

Packing the Handbag

The handbag is used as a personal item carry-on. It contains essentials such as the phone, wallet, passport, lip balm, noise-canceling headphones, iPod, and a notepad. The MacBook Pro, chargers, and hard drives for editing are also placed in the handbag. The blogging camera, consisting of a 30th of a 38th s lens, 28mm lens f/2, and a road micro-mic, is held separately at all times.

By following this method, the author ensures that the camera equipment stays safe and secure during travel.
