If you are someone who travels often for photography it just got super tedious. The TSA just announced that all electronics that are larger than a mobile phone must be placed into a separate tray for screening following the new stronger screening procedures. If you are bringing a camera case or bag you will be required to pull it out of your bag.
The TSA want to enforce stronger security measures to stay ahead of evolving threats and keep passengers safe. This will assist TSA officers to get accurate X-Ray viewings, so they can focus on resolving alarms and stopping terror threats.
The new TSA program is slowly rolling out over the world and has started in the US.
