USING A CANON A80 IN SRI LANKA

    I have just bought a Powershot A80 for my daughter to take to Sri Linka
    during her holiday there in two weeks time. She already has an Olympus
    Stylus D300 camera, but I see the A80 as being an improvement.

    Now I discover a problem which hadn't previously occurred to me -
    taking the camera to the TROPICS during the MONSOON period - hot with
    very high humidity.

    I have been researching the issue of cameras in the tropics some people
    say they have not experienced any problems in these conditions -others
    talk of their cameras being totally ruined by the heat+humidity.

    Ironically, the Olympus is one of the few digital 'waterproof'
    (splashproof in reality!): should she play safe and forego the pleasure
    of using the A80 for this particular holiday and take the Olympus?
