I'd love to see some discussion of shooting and traveling with a camera in tropical conditions. I'll be spending almost a month on ships, boats, and kayaks, and on foot near the water. I'm pretty happy with my body and lens selection, but it's the moisture I'm worried about. The top two issues are:Steve. Start up a thread about this. I would also like to learn more, especially about cleaning/drying the equipment. I livr in the tropics since a few years. I take no special precautions I would say. I have Lowepro bags and a cheap knock off Crumpler slingbag. I am usin my 5D3 and previously a 60D. The worst thing so far is that my 24-105 took bad hit while shooting a 6 minute video while walking in thejungle. After keeping it in air conditioned room for 24 hour it had dried up again. Now working perfect again. 5D3 can take some bad weather in terms of rain, probably more than we think.
1) How to carry the camera when I won't be using it but I might fall in the water or briefly drop a bag.
2) How to protect the camera and lens while shooting, but in light rain, falling moisture from vegetation, etc.
I have a little D10 for snapshots when it's really wet, but I'm really looking for how to use my 5D III with good results and no damage.
