Airline Carry-On SUMMER 2015

Posted on Updated on

Flight HA01

Traveling by plane this summer?
Not sure what gear you can carry-on?

We have put together an extensive Airline Carry-On guide for Summer 2015, with sizes & weights AND recommended Think Tank Photo & MindShift Gear bags.

There’ve been quite a few changes in Airline Carry-on allowances* since we reviewed this last summer… and a lot of NEW Think Tank Photo & MindShift Gear bags, as well as new FLM (lightweight ball heads and tripods) too!

We’ve updated this list of airlines and include the maximum number carry-on items, weights & dimensions*, to help you on your journey.

We have also given you some suggestions for Think Tank Photo & MindShift Gear bags that are within the relevant airline’s carry-on allowance guidelines.

HOWEVER, keep an eye on the maximum carry-on weight you are permitted to take on each airline.

The airlines are listed here alphabetically!

If you use the ‘cmd’ + ‘F’ command on Apple and ‘ctrl’ + ‘F’ command on PC to search for your desired airline more quickly.

Olympus are Sponsoring our summer 2015 O’Neill Wetsuits UK tour, which has given me the chance to play around with the fully waterproof & shock prove Olympus Tough TG-4. It’s remarkably good for something so small compact, with fast focusing & frame rates in the water. I can shoot in raw and 1080p HD video with the TG4 and the quality is extremely high for the sensor size, which has definitely exceeded my expectations!”

David has just got the Think Tank Photo Retrospective 30 canvas shoulder bag for when he needs to take a little less gear out and about with him, so we’ll see how he’s getting on with this later in the summer…

DJI Phantom 1 meets Airport Commuter

Posted on

We met up with Pete from LCE – London Camera Exchange – Winchester branch to find out which backpack from the Think Tank Photo range is the smallest fit for the DJI Phantom quadcopter and accessories.

We found that the DJI Phantom Series 1 fits very snugly in the Think Tank Photo Airport Commuter backpack, with room for the controller, monitor, action camera, some spare batteries and the blades.

Take a look at how this gear fits in the Airport Commuter:

The Airport Commuter backpack weighs in at 1.5 to 1.9kg, depending on the number of dividers used. The external dimensions are 31.6 x 21.6 x 45.7 cm (12.5″W x 8.5″D x 18″H) and the shape is rectangular, so this is an ideal bag for airline travel. Of course you’ll need to check out your preferred carrier for their carry-on allowance!

For those of you that prefer more space around the DJI Phantom quadcopter, then the larger Airport Accelerator backpack is ideal. With external dimensions of 35.6 x 22.9 x 52.1 cm (14″W x 9″D x 20.5″H) and weight of 1.9 to 2.5kg (depending on dividers used) it provides even more space for accessories too. There is also a separate pocket for your laptop and tablet.

These photos give you a guide to the bag size when fitting Canon and Nikon gear inside:

T489 Airport Accelerator 01AS

Accelerator loaded with an assortment of Nikon Gear

Airport Accelerator with Canon Gear

The dividers that come with the Airport Accelerator are for standard DSLR gear, however Think Tank Photo have now produced a special divider set for this backpack – the Airport Accelerator DJI Phantom 2 Divider Kit – to maximise best use of space when fitting the DJI Phantom and accessories:

T487 Airport Accelerator Phantom 2 Divider Kit 02S

T487 Airport Accelerator Phantom 2 Divider Kit 01S

As you can see, compared to the Airport Commuter there is more space around the quadcopter, and greater capacity for accessories. The special dividers allow for storage in between the quadcopter arms, and also the divider kit comes with x4 protective rotor mount thread caps.

The organiser pouches pictured between the arms are the Cable Management 20 V2 – other sizes and types are also available, and you can see the full range HERE.

Find out more about the DJI Phantom quadcopters and Think Tank Photo Airport Commuter and Accelerator backpacks from Pete at London Camera Exchange in Winchester.

You can check out Pete’s work on his website here: www.pete-rawlinson.co.uk

FYI: We filmed the video of the DJI Phantom 1 fitting in the Airport Commuter using Canon, Sony and GoPro cameras.

Think Tank Photo 10th Anniversary – Roadtesting the Urban Approach

Posted on Updated on

We’re heading out to Santa Rosa, just north of San Francisco to join the Think Tank Photo (TTP) team in their 10th anniversary celebrations and looking forward to catching up with all their team on their home turf.

Deciding upon public transport to get to the airport, the big question: what bag or bags to take?!

Airport Security & Urban Approach 15

For me I decantered my lighting equipment and stripped the dividers out of my Airport Security roller, then filled this with clothes and personal gear for the hold. Thankfully the built in TSA zipper lock for the main compartment saved me scrabbling around in search of a padlock at home.

Now for hand luggage I’d normally take my Canon DSLR gear, laptop, tablet, chargers, and other gadgets and utilise the Airport International roller for all this. I like to give my body a rest from carrying gear whenever I can, and one bag also means I’m less likely to loose stuff enroute…

Flying with British Airways this roller fits perfectly in their carry-on bins, and even when heavily laden with big glass I’ve yet to exceed their 23kg carry-on limit with it. Also having the ability to put the laptop inside the roller (utilising the low dividers) gives peace of mind and ease of access for security checks.

  • Airport Security & Urban Approach 15

However, as this trip is a short one I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to road test the new Urban Approach 15 (UA15) backpack and Urban Approach 10 shoulder bag… oh and take less stuff!

It’s not until I try out each bag that I really appreciate the little nuances that really make the TTP bags stand out from the crowd.

Gear wise I opted for my Fuji mirrorless system, Lee filters, iPad, Bose music system, chargers of course, and last minute thankfully remembered my plug adapters for the USA!

The UA15 backpack, with its tapered front, is incredibly deceptive in size and I was really surprised at just how much gear can be comfortably configured in this slim, smart, neat little bag.

Urban Approach 15

The big bonus with this is the ability to slide it over the extendable handle of a roller, thanks to the addition of a fabric strip across the back of the bag, which doesn’t affect the comfort when wearing it. This made my walk to the train station and the change to the bus pretty smooth running.

Breaking with habit I also packed the Urban Approach 10 (UA10) for the small bits I was likely to want quick access to on the flight, and also for fitting the Fuji gear and iPad in when wandering around the town. Like the back back this is incredibly light and surprisingly capacious.

Urban Approach 10

The UA10 combines the features of several shoulder bags in the Think Tank Photo range:

=> the lightness and strength of the CityWalkers with the ‘X’ clasp to secure the front flap and padded shoulder strap
=> the Retrospective Velcro fastening also on the front flap along with the silent feature for added security and quick access to the main compartment, grab handle allowing you to slide this over the roller handle, and expandable front pocket
=> the Urban Disguise Classic clutter free smart exterior with leather accent along the front flap, with rear pocket for small papers or accessories
=> the Mirrorless Mover expandable side pockets for a small water bottle and perfectly sized interior to fit 10″ tablet and mirrorless or micro 4/3rds gear

Urban Approach 10

Now my fellow traveller and  business partner, aka my Pa, opted for one bag as carry on and a small Stuff It pouch on the belt for necessities.

His choice bag was the Airport Accelerator – a rectangular backpack equivalent size to the Airport International roller and fits the BA luggage bin perfectly, yet fits so much more as there’s no extendable handle to cater for. Weighing in at 2.3 kg (check this) prior to packing and having dedicated pockets for both 15″ laptop and 10″ tablet, this provided the perfect solution for him to maximise his carry-on.

Airport Accelerator

Pa finds this bag extremely comfortable to wear, and the easily adjustable straps make for best fit and easy to get on and remove without having to contort your arm. Oh and it’s cool and he likes it!

As well as these bags, the Travel Pouches both small and large make for great toiletry and clothes carriers, and the new CF/SD & Battery wallet keeps the small camera bits together.

So, prior to catching up with the TTP guys we’re heading to the the Schultz Museum and a pit stop at Willy Bird’s!
