TRAVELING WITH CAMERAS AND ELECTRONICS UNDER A TRAVEL BAN |

->> We are now going into a new way for international travel and potentially all airline travel when it comes to flying with electronics.

While I really hate these changes I would rather arrive alive than not.

I think this thread will grow as people chime in after they find out what works on flights with the new travel bans.

->> I have had the "privilege" of going through, and paying for, the TSA's Global Entry Trusted Traveler process so why should I now have to check $20,000 worth of camera and computer gear so that some baggage handler can rip me off?
I don't want to fly somewhere for a gig only to find that I am without the cameras and lenses needed to take the photos that I cannot transmit from my non-existent laptop.
I suggest that people write their elected representatives to complain.

I don't think that will work now. It isn't just the USA.

Not from all of the other countries in Europe, or all of
North America for that matter.
The time to complain is now, before these things get settled, not later, after your gear's been stolen.

->> I think with the intelligence community saying the only way to really keep planes secure is to have all luggage go through the bomb detection equipment that isn't used for carry on then I for one want it.

Now I hope they can put that same bomb detection sensors in the security gates. The reason it might not be there is due to the health concerns of that gear near people. I don't know.

I would like to see us start shifting the comments to how will we pack and more emphasis on camera insurance.

We can write our congress representatives, but if the ability of a bomb is there for a laptop or in a camera then I think we need to be more concerned about that than our convenience.

I am thinking we now need to be prepared for flying where we may have to check everything.

There is one upside to all this and that is we will not have to worry about getting on early for space for our gear if this happens.

->> Jim, I actually got a phone call from Senator Booker's office this evening.. I was shocked. We talked about the pit falls of the ban. And while they did not come out and say they would fight it they do agree that there are some serious problems with it and are looking into it so that is some progress.

->> If only the DHS would look at their own internal research over the past decade or so, from the DHS Science and Technology Directorate, that consistently shows a higher rate of discovery in carry on baggage than checked baggage.

Electronics in checked baggage poses multiple increased threat to aviation security and safety factors , as well as laptops and cameras being checked not only going against 100% of airline Contracts of Carriage, but also against all the safety guidelines from the US DOT Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.

Every bit of research from DHS S&T shows that swabbing and the implementation of a CTX for carry on baggage reduces the threat level. Additionally isolated electronics in a cabin that pose a threat are easier to address and neutralize in flight.

But when has the DHS listened to the DHS?

->> New Scanners and Conveyors Could Make Airline Security Faster and Safer

This was posted back in October. I wonder how close this is to reality and if so should help with the issue.
