    Default Desiccants in Camera bag.....

    Have anyone tried or know if putting these desiccants found in dryfood containers into the camera bag will actually work as preventive measure?

    It wouldn't work very well, if your camera bag isn't airtight (I think only some hardcases are tight, I don't think there's any soft bag which fits the bill). The dessicant would basically suck up all the moisture in the air around it, and since the bag isn't airtight, you will find that the dessicant gets spent pretty fast, too fast to be of much use.

    Absolutely no point, unless your bag is air tight.

    Do you do that to your camera? I believe silica gel can flake and powder. You must really enjoy little flecks of silica gel coating your film pressure plate or clogging up your shuttle. And unless your camera is a Nikonos, no way is it going to be airtight. So whats the point?
