Peter, SQ weight my carry on 2 trips the last time I went back to Asia. I got weighted in Houston Texas. They enforced the 7kg rules and gate checked my carry on. They don't weight everyone. The first time they would walk around the boarding area and look for big bag, the 2nd time they wait at the door when you show them your boarding pass to board the plane.

For those who are in the US, you can buy the LX100 through B&H mobile apps and get a 5% off discount, and they give you a 32Gb Sandisk Extreme card (worth $30) for free. There is also free shipping. I just place my order, thought I should pass the info along in case some body is on the fence to get it.

EunJaelm, it really depends on the airline I think. The next time if they want to weight my carry on, I will try to take my camera and housing out, and see what they say. Singapore airline weighted my whole bag, and I didn't think about taking anything out.

Thanks Chris, I realize the handle can be adjusted closer when I return the housing, so I didn't get to investigate if it will completely solve my problem.

 

ScubaBob, the WB trigger behind the Shutter level is what I used. I used my index finger to pull the WB level toward me. Are you saying you can use thumb to push the WB level forward?

 

May be I just haven't found the right work flow yet. When I was trying out the housing during a macro dive, I don't have a tripod. So I jam the muck stick on my left hand into the sandy bottom, my left hand extended in front of me, and I rest the housing on my left forearm, while my right hand do all the button press. So it's a decent "human tripod" set up that I got pretty good result with. So my style do need one hand operation some times.

 

I guess if the housing is more neutral after adding more float, the right hand switch between the handle and the button area may be manageable. Thanks for all the input everyone, I will give it more thought.

How small are your hands?
 

 

I have Asian hand, since I'm Chinese :lol2: .  I'm glad I decided to rent and try out the housing. That's why I'm on the fence right now, thinking if it's something that I will get over after using/practice it for a while, or what if I spend all the money to acquire the housing, and turn out it's just mean to be two handed operation.
