Last Friday morning I was out shooting in what was mostly a light drizzle, and it got me thinking about how the likelihood my gear could get damaged by a bit of water. I did get a fair bit of fog inside my filter, so I had to take that off. After the shoot I sat my camera, lens and bag in my car's footwell with the AC directed into it, fan on high and temp on medium, for about half an hour in the hope that the dry air would dry it out.
So... How much rain can cameras and lenses take safely? (That's a general question, but more specifically I have a 50D and a variety of lenses from a variety of manufacturers.)
Was my method of post-shoot drying necessary / enough?
Should I take any other precautions?
How many of you guys put silica moisture absorbing stuff in your camera bags? (See this thread - http://www.ausphotography.net.au/for...=lens+moisture)
