    Default Dry box temperature and humidity level

    Hi all,

    My dry box humidity level and temperatures changes thru the day. For example morning will be like 47% then afternoon 48% then evening 47% then now night 48%. Is this normal?

    Thanks

    Yes. It doesn't really matter. Unless perhaps you notice a constant trend in one direction or the other.

    In contrast to popular belief and complaints - the temperature does change during the day

    Turning clockwise towards the 'Red zone' lowers the RH; likewise, turning towards the 'Green zone' raises the RH.

    The RH (& temp) do fluctuate slightly (adjusting to the environment) even if you do not open the cabinet often.

    From my experience, RH of between 45-55 is ideal for photographic lenses; especially so if your lenses are those with in-built AF motor.

    thanks yyD70S for the info, currently i turn the knob as what you said to the 'green zone' to raise the RH as now it's 40%. However, after an hour or so there doesn't seem to have any difference in the reading.
