    Do you routinely use desiccant in your camera bag?

    I live in a high humidity area especially in the summer months. How many of you keep the little container of desiccant in your camera bags? Anyone have a good source for the appropriate size desiccant for a camera bag?

    During the build up we regularly get high humidity but I have never heard of this product so I too am interested in hearing what other have to say.

    Never used desiccant packets in a camera bag, but i have used them quite a bit when I was storing A/V equipment in a storage unit. Ordered a bunch from Uline -

    I've never actually purchased these, but I hear that they're great. Check out the reviews. They can be re-used by being placed in the oven.

    Every once in a while when you buy an electronic gadget it comes with a small bag of desiccant that's there to help keep the moisture from getting into the equipment. I'm sure you see it and wondered what it was for. I would imagine it would be best to use it with a camera. I use desiccant with my rifle scope when I've been out in the rain or high humidity while hunting. Moisture will find its way into anything that isn't hermetically sealed.

    I ALWAYS use desiccant with my photo gear! You can even pick some up at your drug store. Ask your pharmacist for a few of those little sachets they put in some pill bottles.
