I could use the collective knowledge of our esteemed brotherhood as I prepare to venture overseas for a shoot in Germany. I've been doing this for 30 years but international travel on a tight budget is something new.
I know there have been a number of threads about airfare in general over the past few years but they can be tough to hunt down.
I know enough to ship batteries to avoid any of the potential problems they present.
I will be traveling Delta and will attempt to restrict my cases to 4 checked and 2 carry on. The size and weight restrictions of checked baggage is not always clear but I believe it's 50lbs and 63in total (height+length+width).
Any suggestions on possible problems would be appreciated.
I'm also trying to find a rental house in the Munich area that could provide a small jib and rails for the 2 week shoot.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
