BRNO's dri+Cap System offers Canon and NIkon photographers an easy remedy to keep fungus from building up inside the camera due to humidity. Instead of carrying bags of silica gel in your camera bag, BRNO thought of a more efficient way to take care of your cameras.

The dri+Cap System is a set of lens and body caps that are pre-loaded with packets of silica gel. Using them helps maintain the humidity level at what the company calls them "optimum relative humidity" which is just right for your gear. Photographers can also be free from waiting a period of time just to match different temperatures (like when coming from an air-conditioned room going to the sunny outdoors). They also have rubber o-rings which prevents outside air from penetrating through the lens in the mounting area. In addition, the packets change their color to indicate that they need to be changed. Orange gels are good, while green ones should be repleaced.

Each body and lens cap pair is priced at $45, while the 8 packs of replacement gels are at $7.
