I'd look into actual carry-on bags from PortaBrace or the like... they're not going to lug as much gear as your main case would, but they'll get your camera small enough and protected enough to carry-on. I've seen some where you remove the lens, and others where the case is almost more like armor than a bag.

I'd also make sure you don't have the camera TOO stripped down, as you may be required to power it up and show that it works. Of course this means you'll need a battery right there with the camera, but I believe most batteries are carry-on these days anyways. Do some research on Lithium Ion batteries if you have them, I believe they've relaxed some in the past few years, but there may still be strict rules on how and where they are packed and even what sizes of batteries you can fly with.

Generally you're only allowed one carry-on (plus one small bag) so if you've got two cameras, I hope you've got a travel partner.
