    The bag may have higher humidity than photography gear (since it is fabric, or sometimes made from leather, genuine or not). It will make effectiveness of silica gel to absorb humidity decreased.

    do U experience water vapot on the filter when U are out to cold outdoor from "warm indoor"?

    But anyway, portable dry boxes exist, for you to store your camera and carry it around.
    so does not mean from indoor 26deg to outdoor -15 deg we will have condensation problem?
    hmmm....like tat have to standby cloth to wipe the filter liao

    sorry to dig up this old tread but just wondering when you guys bring the camera oversea, do you pack into your suitcase or handcarry? The reason i am asking is because the camera is quite bulky so it would easier to pack into suitcase but then you worry about the handling of the suitecase and the condition of the cargo area....

    HAND CARRY

    I will pack all the batteries, heavy but less valuable stuff, stuffs that can withstand rough handling in the check in baggages, and the camera and lenses in the carry on.

    Totally agree. I also hand carry my camera, my lenses and my 2.85kg 15.4" laptop in a single shoulder bag (ya, a backpack will be good, but my laptop cannot fit into the CompuTrekker). For your info, luggages are being kicked or throw in the cargo area (my friend work in airport before). Anyway, once you reach the hotel, you can always put those stuff that you are not using into the luggage or whatever storage you find safe. Just go out and shoot with what you need.

    Consider putting some fungicide in your bag too. Fuji also makes these fungicide packets.
