I am travelling to Europe for 9 weeks and want to tralevl as possible. I am taking my dslr with 18-55 and 70-300 zooms.
I am in a quandrey I have a Lowpro bag that carries the body with one attached and the other together with spare batteries, Cards, Filters and batteries and when travelling i usually put this indie my carry on bag.
When I get to the destination if doing any travelling (usually not much) I end up with two shoulder bags (given I carry the camera bag separately) and my case.
I really only want to carry one "shoulder strap" bag given we will ber travelling around a bit in Europe. So the options (so far) I have come up with are to just take the camera bag as carry on luggage and take any books etc by hand or carry my camera gear (suitably protected of course) in the bag I use as my carry on which gives me more room for books etc. The problem I see with this is when I am at the destination and wandering about with my camera I won't have anything to carry my camera gear in. So I guess I am stuck with just taking my camera bag and managing any other carry on items as best I can.
Any ideas out there will be most gratefully accepted
