    Default relative humidity in dry cab

    just wondering..
    is there such a thing as RH too low for storing cameras?

    i maintain my RH at 40%..tho' recommended range is ard 45% - 55%..as the manual says...

    any prob with an even lower RH..?

    Open your cabinet every once in awhile to allow moist air to get in?

    Anyway, try to play ard with the knob that controls the RH of your box. That might help.

    Well .... my cabinet comes without any knob for adjustment. The RH stays around 35% all the time when the door is closed.

    Is this considered too "dry" for the lenses and cameras ?
