    Don worry, perfectly safe. Not as cold as u would have imagined. recently quite warm up there. However if u are those that like to take rides so much and not giving the theme park roller coasters a miss than bring a compact.

    Recently genting had introduced alot of outdoor play store where the soft toys are very colourful, good to take pictures.

    i think within 2 hours should be fine.

    No need 1-2 days la.

    I was shooting in -25 deg C temperatures. When I entered a heated room, i had my camera in a ziploc bag. It took around 15 minutes to equalize. I got some condensation on my camera before too, but once you wipe it dry, and dry it out in a dry cab (or raw rice bucket), there shouldn't be a problem. And my cam back then was a D90. not weather sealed or anything.

    Genting is nothing la. aiyoh. And the weather up there so nice, no one uses a/c or heater.. so temperatures all quite stable one.

    brought my dslr to genting before, just have to worry about condensation.. but then condensation often only occur when u move from a cold place to warm place.. in your case, u r going from warm place to "cool" place (20 degree is consider warm in some countries.. haha). only worry if u r out in the open where the floating clouds passes, might have some condensation lenses.. just wipe clean and place it back to drycabinet when u r back.. its only a few days, your camera will survive..

    It's not like you're going to Siberia or something. You should be more worried here in Singapore than in Genting. Going in and out of malls here is bad for your precious baby. And it would take a couple of months/years before some uglies grow on your glass.

    Genting temperature is not cold at all. I was stationed in Lhasa for almost 3 years, summer in Lhasa is already 20 degrees celsius. Had the opportunity to stay at Everest base camp once in April 1990 on the way overland to Kathmandu. Temperature at the based camp over night was -38 degrees celsius and we stayed in a double layered tent outdoors. Camera survived. Please do not baby your camera, it is tougher than it looks.

    Genting is nothing. Just take and go and shoot. Don't waste time even thinking about it!
