I will be traveling to Havana next month on a personal project and, unlike vacation, plan on bring my professional system.
This will consist of an IQ260, Arca Swiss tech camera, Phase One XF body, six lenses and a tripod. I may also bring a Sunbounce, canon Speedlight (or two) and some modifiers for it.
If this were a professional paid project, I would certainly plan on dealing with customs. However, since I am shooing for myself, is this something I should be concerned with?
If so, how should I handle this? If I need to have my equipment inspected at the airport the day before, does it need to be at the same airport I am flying out of? (Philly, where I live, does not have direct flights to Havana, so I need to go to Newark.)
Thank you in advance,
