As a traveling photographer, one of my greatest fears is to be forced to check my overweight camera gear into the cargo hold when traveling by plane.

This online tool was created with the help of fellow photographer Isabelle Lim ( to help traveling photographers estimate the weight of their equipment for airline carry-on purposes.

To use this tool, just change the “NO” to a “YES” in the sheet and it will automatically estimate the total weight at the top.
