I always take my camera and a bunch of lenses as carry-on. No problem!

No problem with the X-rays... It was thought to be a problem with film (not with the cameras or lenses) but, memory cards are not sensitive to Xrays.

However - be sure to carry the gear on the plane... Don't send it as checked luggage.

TSA regulations allow one carry-on bag, one personal bag and one camera bag (3 bags total). Don't know about the return trip, though. :)

X-rays will not harm your gear, but if you take a film camera keep it in your carry-on or camera bag. Do not check it, as those X-ray machines are much more powerful and will fog even ISO 25 film. ISO 400 or lower can go through security X-rays up to 5 times.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.
