Default Going in to humid places,like greenhouses w/ digicams

I've seen all the postings of how to handle really cold(which thankfully rarely occurs in Ga.)What do you do when you enter a green house or butterfly exhibit.My film cams always fogged up and took quite a while to clear.What precautions w/ a digicam are useful

How about one of those clear plastic zip seal freezer bags? - or those bags claimed to be ok for cams in water, but get some dry air, Argon or Helium balloon gas into it before sealing, could try a dessicator like Silica Gel the night before? Either way you should try to get your cam and lenses to a similar temperature (car heater/thermal picnic box?) before going in

Otherwise you'll just need to wait, let your cam aclimatise and forget about dew points.
