Storing your camera gear when traveling and in hotel?

1 year 3 months ago #620280 by Chris Banner
When you head out to dinner for example, what are you doing with your camera gear?  It won't fit in the room safe, and lugging a big heavy camera bag with out might not fly with your wife or your back.  So what are you doing with it?

Myself, I travel light. I will also NEVER leave my gear in a hotel/motel room, a few times I've put it in the trunk of my rental car for short periods though, but usually its a medium backpack and it goes with me everywhere.

Why so serious?

I lock my camera bag up and hide it in the room.

When I travel, I only bring what I will feel comfortable having with me at all times.  I never leave gear in the hotel room.  

Nikon 18-55mm VR, Nikon 70-200mm VRII f/2.8, Nikon 50mm f/1.8, Nikon 10.5mm Fisheye, Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, SB-700 & SB-800

Same here.  If I can't carry it with me, I don't bring it.

I leave it in the car until I get back to the room.

There are photographs everywhere. It is the call of photographers to see and capture those images.

Depends on the hotel and location.   3 star or less.  No way.  4 star in the US, yeah, but for only evening hours when I know the maids aren't scheduled to come in my room.

Worse case is I'll keep my camera body and one lens (which ever is on the camera) always with me.  If I have additional gear, I'll leave it in my room.

Well, as stated, for me as well it depends on where I'm staying at.  I've gone to some hotels where I was comfortable leaving my gear in my room.  Where as others, I stuffed my underwear into the room safe!

Depends on the hotel.  If it a semi questionable place, then no.  My gear is always with me.

+1 pretty much the same here.  Use common sense.

I'll usually keep the camera body with me, and everything else in my camera bag hidden in the room.
