    Default Necessary or not?

    when storing cam in a drybox is it necessary to dismantle the lens from the body and store it seperately?

    Not necessary. Depending on your space in the drybox, you can store separately or having the lens fit in the body. I store the lens fit in the bodies.

    if you use your camera everyday, you really do not need to stroe it in a dry box. kmolds need 2 things in orde to grow, moisture and still air. If you are using your camera all the time, the air movement will be a deterrent to mold growth. Actually, it's not unheard of that mold can grow inside a dry box, where the air is still.

    If you have a room that is airconned all the time, I just leave the camera in the room. Just make sure they are not directly in the path of the cold air , you don't want to get your equipment so cold that once you take it starts condensation.

    normal a/c's maintain low humidity values so you dont need a dry box if the space is always air conditioned. there will be some condensation after you take it out, but that should not be much of a problem.
