Default NEW Airplane DSLR on board policy?

What is your experience with the new Airplane DSLR on board policy for certain airliners which fly towards middle east, etc.

I am flying to Europe via Turkey with Turkish Airlines. As per the new security policy, I can't have my DSLR, laptops in possession. They keep everything in a bag and will be given back to the passengers at the end of the flight.

What is your experience? Do they take the DSLR with all the lenses or they take the body only and I can keep the lenses in my carry on bag? Obviously, I want to give them less as possible.

Please share your experience!

My guess is that, if you FedEx your gear to your destination, you won't have to deal with whatever the policy is. Plus, you won't have to carry it all.

I think the laptop,DSLR not allowed is a direct fallout of American perceptions of terrorist threats,all of a sudden they come out with "rules" about what is allowed and what is not in many airports around the world.It can be "take off your shoes,socs,no batteries,show your mobiles,laptops"and so on.One of my friends had to hand over his sigma 150-600 sports on his Canon 1DX so that a bloak could satisfy it was not a weapon.
