Just put the camera and lenses into the box. No need to detach or anything.Originally Posted by hlkh78
Thanks bro for the answer
So if my lenses got abit of fungus, dry box will stop fungus grown rite?
Canon 7D, Canon 1000D, Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4 OS HSM, Canon 50 F1.8, Nissin 466, Canon EX 320
Sony A7/ Sigma 19-2.8 E/ CV 35-1.7 ASPH/ FE 55-1.8/ MC Rokkor 58-1.2/ Pentax SMC K 135-2.5
I have a few 1950s camera that came with real leather casings, so i make a point to remove them as well as other organic materials after used.
I set my dry-cabi at 40-50 RH.
Extra can of silica-gel in there in case the drycabi down, which give buffer time for RMA etc.
I also avoid putting foam and other plastic fume-releasable materials, which others have experience that the fume will overtime build up in the lenses.
Fungus will NOT be cured just by placing inside the drycabi, and still a great risk that the fungus will continue to grow even slowly.
Try to keep dust away from dry-cabi too, avoid dirty hands/fingers, always clean hands before handling/taking photo equipment in/out.
