In Topic: Silica gel??

So, if I pack the camera in an A/C room, and go outside all day,..it shouldn't be a problem when I come back in later and take the camera out? (in the A/C room) The change from hot to cold? I guess it wouldn't matter too much because I wouldn't be using the camera in the housing, if I'm taking it out.

You know, I always have to through out those little silica gel packets all the time, and now when I need them, where are they!

It doesn't mention using silica gel packets in the manual, or on the Canon website,...for the SD500 UWhousing (underwater guide, online)
But, for the other models it mentions using the silica gel. I'm wondering if it's different for this model, since it's one of the newest point and shoot digital cameras for Canon.

This is what you get for my camera model:

And this is what you get from some of the other models:

See, this information you don't find in the manual.
The manual didn't tell me much,...really. I felt "empty" after reading it.
I found it to be a bit unclear.
Thanks again everyone.

You flooded your housing!!!,..Geeze,..don't tell me that!!
I guess if I'm not opening it outside, it should be fine.
What does it do, exactly?? Remove any moisture/condensation from the inside of the housing?

Hmmm..that is a good idea. I wonder, would a large hefty ziplock bag do the trick? I don't think I can get a hold of a dry bag anytime soon.
