Well, after living in the Philippines (which is close to 100% humidity for more than six months a year in Central Luzon) for a couple of years, I'm convinced that there is only one thing you can do to prevent condensation from occurring - and that's to keep the cameras and/or lenses out of the air conditioning.
We lived in base housing at Clark AB, and the electricity was "free", so you can imagine the A/C was cranked up most of the time - every time I'd walk out from being inside, the lenses (I was shooting Nikkor lenses on an F3 and/or an RB-67 at that time) would fog over for quite a while until they cleared, sometimes hours. It got to be that I'd keep the gear on the back porch (it was enclosed but not air conditioned) if I was heading out for a shoot later in the day... go ahead and let the condensation happen and clear before the gear was needed.
Of course, if I was going to shoot inside... well, ya can't have everything instantly!
It's either that or find a hermetically (sp?) sealed camera bag!
