How much gear are you taking where you have to check camera bags? If valuable gear is really needed to be taken and it exceeds the carry-on limit the normal process is to buy another ticket. When has not been possible, I have given up my seat and took the 2 day train ride instead. Of all the easily identified x-ray'ed items that pose the highest risk of theft it has to be photographic gear. I have flown many countries, 86 so far, and the most losses have occurred when originating in US TSA controlled airports.
Regarding small jets and climate controlled holds, they all have controlled environments, by regulation. But regional jets are not that small. A small jet was my Citation II that even had a controlled hold. If at all possible (if you have theft prone gear), reduce the size and weight and carry it on. There are many regions of the world where i can't take my full lens bag on a plane due to weight.
