How to protect your gear
Take a carry-on friendly backpack to transport your gear on the plane – don’t check it in, unless you want to collect a bag of smashed glass at your destination.
Pack both a lens-cleaning and a sensor-cleaning kit in your carry-on luggage and a jeweller’s screwdriver set in your check-in bag, in case you need to make running repairs to your camera or lenses.
If you’ll be taking photos in a humid location, take sealable plastic bags to store each piece of your equipment in, along with rechargeable packs of silica gel to keep it dry and fungus-free.
