    In your opinion, what are some of the ways to maintain equipment to keep the fungus out, in addition to keeping them in a dry box? Going on your experience, what's a good humidity range to use?

    I would categorize your usage as normal/average/medium. So, if I were you, I will set the humidity to normal/medium.

    General upkeep/maintenance includes:

    1) keeping the lens/camera/equipment cleaned before storage.
    2) Keeping the lens/camera/equipment airy, meaning remove filters, lens/body caps, cover etc.
    3) sending equipment for general cleaning every year or every few years.
    4) using your equipment you rarely/never used. If need to, sell them away rather than shelving them (inside/outside of a dry cabinet), an invitation for fungus.

    Thanks for all the great information. It's been very helpful. Of course, I should've have bought a digicabi that will do everything for me, but what's done is done. I need to try and fix things now.
