Did you get the off/on switch to work?  Besides the live view, live view selector, AF/AE lock is there anything else that does not work with the D810 in the D800 housing?

The point that I was trying to convey In flying through HKG was that if you stay in the transit area and do not leave the airport you will not be hassled about having two carry-on's.  It is the security check after check-in at the ticket counter that gets you.  


We spent a few days in Hong Kong as we were traveling to Komodo and got dinged at security, they would not let us pass with two carry-on's.  We were forced to check in our roll-on's to DSP.  We were flying Cathay on business class.

If you are flying coach on Cathay you are only allowed one carry-on that has a weight limit of 15 lbs plus a small backpack/laptop bag.

Look at: http://www.cathaypac...on-baggage.html


In flying out of DPS last year on business class I was allowed to take a thinktank backpack and roll-on only after I begged and pleaded with the agent.  I showed the agent what was in both bags and told her that I was carrying $35,000 in camera gear that it was too fragile to go in the baggage hole.  Luckily she gave in.  But in leaving HKG I was not so lucky, their TSA would not allow me to pass through with two carry-on's and my roll-on got shipped in the baggage hole.
