The question I have is that if you're on an assignment/vacation where the humidity is high then how do you protect your gear? One user said it'd take atleast 24 hrs of exposure to high humidity to cause fungal growth. Would a good camera bag and silica gel sachets help along with acclimatization?

Try to give the equipment as much time as possible sitting in the open sun every day (even if it's monsoon season and the sun is behind clouds)--don't miss a day. Even though the humidity may measure more than 70%, the solar warming of the equipment will break the 24-hour cycle.

I can't take it out in the open sun as I go to work early but I will try. Can I keep it inside a room where there is sunlight? Will that work?
