SG humidity is 90% over. So what do u think SA humidity can do to your cam?Originally Posted by anhyeuem
hi i have a question here about akarui cabinet.. i just bought 1 few days ago.. i did read some post before about open up the door to hit the room humidity then close back up..so i try it and double check with another cheapo hydrometer but this 2 given me 2 different reading ..
akarui hum lvl - 60%

Is it ok to put camera strap in dry cabinet, I guess it has got the sweat and salt
Will it fuel the fungus ?
so isit recommended to put silca gels in together with teh cabinet ?

Thanks alot ! i did try already .. my cheapo hygrometer is correct and my built-in hygro inside the cabinet is spoilt..
Therefore it stands to reason that adding silica gel to the cabinet will not be beneficial in any way. If it is dryer than the set humidity, the cabinet will simply "take a break"

hi, i did put silica gels in my dry box, but dun know whether i should open it to spread around or leave seal in the small paper bag?
Anyway, anything between 35% to 65% should be good enuff for the equipment and lenses in the dry cabinet. Is it so impt to take note of a 10% difference between yr dry cabinet reading to yr digital hygrometer ready?
