    Just to tag on. Do you guys usually remove the lens from the body when putting into the dry cabinet? Is that necessary?

    Well... I never did remove my lens from the body when keeping it in the dry cabinet. I think it is okay.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    No, and has been asked about 200 times before. Please do try a search next time so that everything people have previously shared does not go to waste, OK?

    Its ok... perfectly safe.

    On the contrary, the best way of taking care of your camera gear is to use them regularly.

    if user is using legacy lenses with flange to depress the aperture spring-loaded lever/button, yes. the lenses and adapter should be decoupled for the spring to enjoy tension relief .

    same idea as handgun magazine should be stored unloaded of rounds , or else spring too tensed over long period, suffer from plastic deformation

    Ok sorry.

    i think havin'' a printer on top of your drybox is fine.. unless you are running a printing shop and it's printing for most part of the day - every day of the week.

    most importantly, avoid placing the drybox under direct sunlight...

    lens and camera are very well made and well fixed. If u worry about that like that u should also worry if u carry ur camera out since when u walk or move u create enough more vibration or moving to the camera.
