I was in NZ for 1 month and brought
- Tripod (checked luggage)
- Canon 5D
- 70-200 F4L IS
- 16-35 F4L IS
- Mavic drone + accessories
Air New Zealand has a (as I've heard) strict 7kg carry-on limit. If I am returning for a longer stay, I'd certainly want to bring more of my gear. But I'll absolutely be over the 7kg limit. I'd be reluctant, but I think I might be able to work with checking "all" my camera gear in a pelican-type case? But then the problem is I'll still be moving around, and not really sure I could just haul around a pelican case.
How do you guys normally deal with going to places for longer/the "need" for more gear with you?
