Theoretically this “should” not happen because you should be assessed as “safe” if you have already passed security. But I see...

It’s very interesting if this is true that there are different “classes” of carry-on. It seems that some things you can literally...
10/08/2019 - 10:24
Ah, very interesting and useful comment. I was not aware of that. Of course the airline does not explain that you can do this. I will test...
10/08/2019 - 10:19
That would be too easy!
10/08/2019 - 10:14
But I’m a true blue card carrying ozbargainer, I expect everything for nothing, don’t you? :-)
10/08/2019 - 10:14
Now you’re talk’n!! And no you would not get stuck at security because you “tape up” AFTER security!!
09/08/2019 - 13:53
Yes, but a backpack I think would be classed as carry-on. The ticket discussed here does not allow ANY carry-on.

GaryG: Your not thinking big enough. Your assuming a narrow context. My context is that I will be arriving in SCL with 14kg of allowed...

Phone won’t cut it for what I use a camera for!!
08/08/2019 - 18:15
Simple......the ability to take my camera with me, that’s all. PS. Does not fit on my pocket before you ask!!
08/08/2019 - 14:05
Ok, but do those people live in the same clothes every day while working- remember, no checked baggage or carry-on !
08/08/2019 - 12:40
LOL on first comment!! As for second comment, well not too sure about that. As I said in the OP, who travels with nothing, even on domestic...
08/08/2019 - 12:34
No, you didn’t read it correctly. It explicitly says does NOT include checked luggage and does not include Carry-on.!!
08/08/2019 - 12:30
Agreed, yes, You can pay more and get Carryon and checked baggage. But the point of my post was that there are tickets that exist with not...

I was on the Latam airlines website last night looking to buy a domestic flight in Chile on LATAM airlines. By the way, they also fly to...

Here is a tip for people planning on visiting Sri Lanka-I was there a couple of years ago. Sri Lanka is one of those countries which is...

Interesting thought, yes I do have one of those. I might see what it tells me. thank you
26/07/2019 - 10:01
Ok, Possible, but let’s assume they did short those pins. Then why doesn’t it work with the same cable but using any other USB output...
26/07/2019 - 09:59
This doesn’t make sense to me. If it’s powered by an external battery as you say then this will be DC power. Even if it did have a port...
26/07/2019 - 09:57
I have spoken to Nikon several times about this issue. They understand my issue but have no solution that does not involve having access to...
26/07/2019 - 09:56
Nice find guys-This was exactly what I needed. This should solve my problem.
26/07/2019 - 09:50
no go unfortunately! Those are mostly external battery charging solutions, not external powering of camera for continuous operation, but...
24/07/2019 - 13:53
yes, I saw those thanks. Conclusion: nobody has solved the external power problem for the P1000 yet, other models yes!!
24/07/2019 - 13:47
Yes, I agree with you in general. In my case however, my camera is mounted on a delicate equatorially driven telescope mount. I would have...
24/07/2019 - 13:20
I say that because that is how it is out of the box, unless you go and buy other accessories as you provided in your links.
24/07/2019 - 12:39
Possible, but that interrupts the operation of the camera whilst the battery is changed. Not ideal in my scenario.
24/07/2019 - 12:34
BOGOF: Where did you get that voltage from? I looked at the Nikon adaptor and it says on the back that the output is 5V at 1A, not 8.4V.
24/07/2019 - 12:32
BOGOF: really......., Im curious to know where you found out that the adaptor uses 8.4V. How can that be true? If it is USB output, doesn't...
24/07/2019 - 12:28
yeah, I read that. I just took that to mean only buy Nikon original parts as we make more money that way. In my experience, ALL...
24/07/2019 - 12:24
yes, but the ALDI one COMES with the plug adaptors, the XIAOMI one DOES NOT. That was my point.
