I've never had any trouble carrying my camera bag through the security check. It goes through the xray machine fine, no problem. Have a great time!

First off enjoy your trip! You are one lucky guy with the weather in this state for the next week!

I always carry my photo gear on so I know it will get to the destination. Should be no big deal for you, its possible your photo gear will be inspected but I've never had that take more than a few minutes.

I do ask that they not open and or touch anything in my bag unless I am standing right there. Every TSA person has been more than cooperative in that regard.

Check the TSA web site for the latest on battery information, I don't believe that has changed in the last year. I've carried as many as 9 in one bag along with chargers.

Make sure your gear NEVER leaves your sight! If you are sitting and waiting I use my backpack as a footstool. Either you are hanging on to it or someone in your traveling party. You are better off with a bag that doesn't scream photo gear!

Again good luck and travel safe!

The only concern with X Ray machines is if your film speed is over 400 ASA. Wait, that's advice I'd have given 15 years ago.
