Thinking of going to the states this summer, and i need some advises on how to carry my stuff on the flights.
Stuff i'm going to carry;
1x Canon 50D + Tamron 17-50 f2.8
1x Canon 70-300 IS USM
1x Canon 430EX II
1x Apple MacBook Pro 13"
1x Apple iPad
For the carry-on, i have my eyes on the Lowepro Vertex 100AW, which from what i read, should fit my needs just barely.
However, since i probably don't want to bring the vertex along with me all the time, i need something that can hold my camera, an extra lens and my ipad.
I have my eyes on the Think Tank Retrospective 10, which seems to be ideal for my needs - also for easy access to the camera, in the airports etc..
What worries me most about this bag, is if the airliners would allow me to carry it onboard along with the Vertex.
- Would it be considered to be my "personal item"?
It's really only the airports/airliners that worries me.
My thoughts are to rent a car in Miami and do a road trip around Florida, for something like a week, and then fly to New York and spend another week in the city.
I have never been in the states before, and never flown with any of the bigger airliners, like KLM or Lufthansa.
Thanks in advance.
