    Hi, you can try this product called Dampp-Chaser. But may not be suitable for storing cameras. Used to be available at Tangs. Not sure if they still carry it.

    Good old smelly white balls will do the trick... or even some silicon gels! lol

    Just dry the silicon gel when it change colour and reuse it.

    I bought this dehumidifier from Home-Fix at Ikea Alexandra. It's pretty effective. I put it in my walk-in wardrobe of about 1.5m x 3m and it works great! It's a small dehumidifier that cost only $79.90, down from $99.90. I think they still have stock.

    I am using this Delongi Dehumidifier costing $600+. That was 6 years ago and its still working. It can effectively remove mositure from the air very quickly. I do not turn it on 24x7, but those nights when it rains heavily, forever. It's on wheels, and goes into the bedroom, wardrobe, storeroom, or just by the balcony (closed windows of course) to assist the drying of clothes. Half of the bottom is actually a big container to hold water.

    Somehow I suspect the air-to-water technology is based on such dehumidifiers, so if there's every a drought, as long as there's electricity, I can leave this on and drink the water!!
