The specs of the camera say that the operating environment is 85% or less humidity. I'm going to Tokyo over July / August and really want to take it for some amazing snaps, but the humidity over there is 90% or above.
Is the operating environment just recommendations for the best performance, or could exceeding it cause damage to the camera?
Also, I would have the camera in the bag (probably with packs of some Silicone gel) most of the time and only be taking it out for photos, would this help since it's not constantly facing the humidity?
I realize that people in Japan or other humid countries must use the cameras over the humid time, but do they have to do something differently to minimize exposure/ damage?
Would body armour protect it? Because I've heard a lot of reviews saying that it only protects from scratches. But surely there's something out there to protect from weather....
Sorry for the many questions . Any and all help would be fantastic, thanks!
