I am interested in hearing any Canadian citizens experience with taking their Red Cam to the USA.
I am flying, so will be clearing customs at the airport. I am going to shoot some footage of my friend surfing and will not be working while I am there for 6 days.
Here is what I found out
A carnet is used as proof of ownership of gear when traveling abroad (not just to the US) You only can receive a carnet if you are going on a work permit. They are fairly pricey, to get one for my 50K kit would be around $700 valid for 1 year
You can either do this at a local canadian custom office or at the airport (time dependant) They go through your kit and make a list of gear to prove what is owned by you
I also called the a boarder crossing and US customs, after being on hold for 45 minutes, the woman on the phone said I would be have no problem with my gear.
Can anyone explain any experiences they had, positive or negative when travelling to the USA post-911 with their gear.
Just trying to see what I will have to go through
