1) Is tripod allowed to be strapped to camera bag and carried as a cabin luggage or carry-on luggage?
2) In view of the max weight of the cabin luggage allowed at any airport ranges from 7kg to 11kg (some European countries), what happens if our camera gears weigh more than 11kg? Mine is usually around 12 to 15kg.
I face the similar problems each time l travel oversea. Sometimes l have to go through heated arguments with the officers starting from the check-in counter to the ticket staff at the boarding room. Luckily so far l managed to go through successfully each time. But l do not want to have the same experience like this in the future.
Do we have a standard list of items that are allowed to carry to the cabin? Yes general items but not in great detail about the photography gears; l can't find much on the wt and space allowance for the camera and gears. Also l don't find much info on the tripod allowed to the cabin.
Hope someone here and moderators can answer me. Hope l don't have to buy a Pelican hard case!!!
