Yeah, I'm allowed both, but the size listed for the personal item is actually quite small. Maybe they won't enforce those limits, but I decided not to risk it. I'm actually checking a hard side bag for this trip, so I don't want to take a second one. So, the camera backpack will serve as my larger carryon (and give me a backpack for while I'm there), and I've got a smaller satchel type bag for my personal bag.You have to check the rules for your flight but I think generally you are allowed a personal bag and a carry-on.
I usually have my daily use backpack as my personal bag and then I can have a carry-on as well, you could use one of those hard-case overnight rollers as a carry-on and put the camera bag in that.
That would give you lots of space for your gear.
