I was advised to always fit the camera steady to my H Plus for transport even in its case. The camera is free to move on the gimbel and will result in damage and an expensive repair. My advise to you is if you cant lock the camera so it cant move about in transport remove the camera and put it in its case.perfect it still seems very well secured
True, but not an issue for me. If I was shipping I would absolutely take the camera off, and likely ship it and the aircraft rather than let the luggage monkeys have a shot at it. I've had bad luck with airlines and model airplanes in checked luggage.Keeping it upright goes out the window when checked as air transport baggage. I had a lot of drones shipped to me overseas with cameras attached. Almost every attached camera sustained shipping damage of some sort. Cameras packaged and shipped
individually arrived unscathed.
Along with everyone else. Just a PSA, but I did a ride along in the front office of a UPS DC-8 awhile back. All they haul is freight. That included a quick tour of the sorting facility. They don’t treat anything any better than passenger carriers, and my observations puts UPS worse. In fact, they may well be where the gorilla testing of luggage was done in that old commercial...I've had bad luck with airlines and model airplanes in checked luggage.
