    As suggested in the article, I just throw a few silica gel packs into my camera bag. When ever I buy or get something that has the gel packs, I throw out an old one for the new one.

    They are just as useful for non-weather sealed cameras. Can't hurt to keep cameras dry as well.

    I purchased a dehumidifying cabinet (dry cabinet) a few years ago. Well worth the cost.

    I have a couple of plastic storage boxes with silicon seals as my dry boxes (~$AU20). I use a rechargable dehumidifier (~$AU20) in each box. Humidity usually hovers around 20-30% inside the boxes. Creative use of thick cardboard serves as dividers. Store lenses without back or front caps.
