What nick said!

If your'e traveling with just a few thousand $ worth of stuff (A7S ii, glidecam, tripod and a bunch of lenses) and not a bunch of pelican cases, then I wouldn't bother with a carnet. If you're traveling with $100K or more and lots of suspicious looking cases then you'll definitely want a carnet.

If you want to chance it, knock yourself out. But the right way to do it is abide by the law.
