  • And don't overlook a photo of the departures notification board at the airport. :-)
  • Replied in Yup
    Yup, yup. At the moment there are 146 distinct products on the B&H Website listed as camera and lens rain covers.  Most are small, cheap and reasonably effective, save in monsoon weather.
  • This is not necessarily a good solution.  All it takes is one modification of the current restrictions and CF/SD cards and portable storage devices can easily be included -- and then you're likely ...
  • And, don't forget that in many instances (perhaps even moreso given the nature of the 'threat' used to justify this action), don't forget that they must have direct access to the equipment to ...
  • Unfortunately, even if you can get it at a reasonable price, insurance is of little help in protecting the cost of replacing images, documents, or applications that I normally would be carrying.  ...
  • In this forum, first warnings appeared in the Open Talk and News and Rumors forums, I believe.  I was within a week of departing for a four months' visit to the UK at the time and went into panic, ...
  • This is basically what I do -- just confirm the power strip and it's cable can handle the higher voltage.  You'll be astonished at the number of other appliances you will suddenly wish you could ...
  • That's very nice, but . . . I suspect a lot of travelers and businessmen now use phones, tablets, and yes, even laptops in which the Li-ion batteries are no longer easily removable.  (And I would ...
  • What is (and has been) covered by the current ban remains suspiciously vague.  I am beginning to suspect this is by design.  For example, since the ban was initially proclaimed by the US, there ...
  • If that's a spoon in your right hand, I hope you're not planning on gagging me with it.
  • Wanna see my FBI wind breaker? ;-) The FBI (and others) are walking a fine line between what they can say to inform the public of the reason for the current restrictions while, at the same time, ...
  • Based on Thursday's CNN on-air and website articles, I don't believe this is quite so true in the case of these particular laptop bombs. In the first place, I've got an HP Omen Pro that I usually ...
  • Yeah, I've got a MIOPS unit myself.  But I only use it for some rather rare scenarios.  For everything else, I find that the basic wireless shutter release is all I need. Admittedly, this is very ...
  • I'm not worried about the existing ban but rather the one likely coming shortly which may well extend the ban globally.  As discussed on CNN today.  In my case I'm worried about travel to and from ...
  • Check any CNN news program since about 5 PM EDT  31 Mar 2017 or the front page of the CNN website right now.  Wolf Blitzer just ran a 30 minute segment on the 5 PM newscast. This is similar to what ...
  • After the collapse of the Soviet Union, I believe you could find those in the bargain basement of the GUM department store in Moscow.  I think their stock is now sold out but you might try ebay in ...
  • In an article today on the BBC website, IATA chief executive Alexandre de Juniac said: "Why don't the US and the UK have a common list of airports? How can laptops be secure in the cabin on some ...
  • Replied in Lenses?
    My apologies; I should have phrased that somewhat differently. I should have said " For those reading ajscullard's post above, . . . " We've unfortunately got a lot of casual readers that sometimes ...
  • See the recent article in the Daily Telegraph on why we don't necessarily want electronic devices in the cargo hold, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/news/laptop-ban-are-lithium-batteries-safe-in- ...
  • Replied in Lenses?
    Just remember -- the new rules for flying into the UK are different from those in place for flying into the US and they apply to different airports and airlines, also.
