it really depends on the country, the humidity and the time you will be there..

also where you will be staying and how often you will be shooting...

Don't bother with the additional bulk. Pack it into your camera bag, and if you're that kiasu, get some fresh silica gel packs and put them inside :)

No need to bring. I come from a 4-season country. Humidity is usually drier than Singapore. Even in winter, the air is still drier than Singapore. All the moisture becomes ice. There's none left in the air. What you need to bring are some warm clothing and lip balm cos you will dry up and your wet lips will crack. :bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

these machines are built to have a certain amount of endurance.. so no point treating it like a piece of porcelain...

Dry Box in not needed!:nono:

BUT

Wipe dry if the precious gears get wet under rain or snow...

@lways let gear come out the breath the fresh air (exposed under sun better) instead of putting them in dry box is recommended.:thumbsup:

Because they are machine of taking pictures, not matter how expensive they are...:bsmilie:

All the best!

Most important is to have a drying towel and the lens clensing kit with you.
