Hi, I'm heading to Europe for a cruise of the Mediterranean in late June. I've never traveled to Europe with camera gear, and am looking for some advice. I have a camera/laptop backpack, and will be carrying a 7D, 3 L lenses (longest is 70-300), a Speedlite, plus filters, backup batteries/cards, etc. I'll put my tripod in my checked in suitcase. I'll be flying Swiss to Europe, and Lufthansa back. A couple questions...do I need to worry about the size of my backpack for carry on? (it's been fine on U.S. air travel) Do I need to carry copies of receipts for my gear to avoid any potential duty issues? We'll be on shore excursions every stop. Does anyone have experience that would advise for or against carrying a tripod on that sort of excursion? Thanks in advance.
