Ideal travel companion

If you have worries about airport security wondering if you'll be asked to part with your nice expensive cameras, eg being sent to the hold and not seeing them for dust. Here's the answer:

Having trouble with LR and messages like, "The file could not be found" this might not be a bad idea!

You know the security wouldn't know what a film is so would open it to look at it!

Re: Ideal travel companion

Perhaps cameras should be like cars. We don't take our cars abroad (with the possible exception of Europe) but hire them when we get there. Having made the arrangements in advance you queue up at Hertz on arrival at your destination airport (other hire companies are available) and pick up your equipment. Return it when you leave... remembering to take the SD card with you.

Re: Ideal travel companion

thinking back over the range and quality of the cars I have rented I think the output from the rent-a-cam store product could be very variable.

That's an excellent idea! A dragon's den moment!

Apparently our human memories (of holidays for example) are stored better if we do not take photographs. Something to do with the brain offloading if we take a photo. Your brain effectively saying, why should I bother with all this memory stuff, you'll have your holiday snaps back from Max Speilmann in a week or two.

Maybe there is a way to implant a USB port to our brain for off loading the pictures

When I first saw the title of this thread I got completely the wong idea.

That is a brilliant idea, except when you get there you will find that the insurance costs three times as much as the hire charge.

Of course you'll have to use their provided 512 MB SD card, which will be half empty/full. Any delete function will be disabled, and you will be overcharged on how much space there is left when you take it back to the airport.

In case you wondered, yes; I have been ripped off by Avis/Hertz/Budget/Europcar in the past. Illegitimi!

I think I would buy some when I get there to avoid hassles with the x-ray Securitate.

But at least the optical quality of those lenses should be up there with Canikon.

Re: Ideal travel companion

What's the current best advice for air travel with a digital camera, and with a film camera (apart from remove the film).

Re: Ideal travel companion

Unless there is a specific restriction ie no electronics in the cabin then I keep the camera in either the back pack and / or shoulder bag and put them in the luggage bin.

However this year I am not planning to fly but going by car ferry.
