    Please do a search in future. We have just discussed identification of fungus just very recently.

    As for protection against it, there are PLENTY of these threads around in the forum. Just click on the search button above.

    camera bag is not air tight, so you have silica gel drying agent in the bag is useless.

    btw, google is your friends.

    err.. you "cant find any" meaning you cant find any threads at all? or cant find fungus-related threads that answer to your specific question? If its the former.. there is definitely "plenty" of threads around and you should be able to find some threads.. If its the latter.. perhaps its better that you ask only the specific unanswered question instead of asking questions that has been answered in other threads? or carry-on the discussion in the other threads where there has already been many replies?

    I just searched with the simple keyword "fungus" and this is what i got.. http://forums.clubsnap.org/search.php?searchid=5573254
    I don't mean to be rude... but from what i can see... there are indeed "plenty" of threads on fungus id and fungus prevention.. maybe you searched with too many keywords?

    Anyway.. hope it helps~
