Ok, so everyone says to just take a carry on bag for trips to Italy. My wife and I are going and it will be my first time to Europe in October. I am an amature photographer and I plan to take my gear with me to Italy. Just my camera stuff is about the size of carry on.. Even if I take only the minimum amount of gear I'd still fill a good part of carry on... So, I've got questions for you Photographers out there.
Does a medium/large camera backpack count as a carry on?
Should I even take my "camera backpack" as it may be a target for theft because it looks like a camera backpack?
(I wouldn't be carrying it on my daily travels... just when i'm going from hotel-train-hotel)
tripods. I'd like to take a tripod for night shots in Venice, rome, CT... Those can only be checked, right? It won't fit inside my camera backpack.
I know I have more questions... just can't think of them right now...
