    Thought it's uncommon for 1 unit in such a large cabinet, I thought at least 4~5 units wor

    I saw the DHC-160, it has 3 IIRC.

    Apologies for digging up this old thread but didn't see a need to start a new one.

    I am currently using the Eureka brand dry cabinet and I set my meter in the cabinet to somewhere near the High mark (around halfway between M & H) but the meter hardly goes below 45%. I know I do open the cabinet quite a fair bit (maybe around 2-3 times a day) but I was wondering if it's necessary to get a new dry cabinet? This one's rather old, around 4 years old and there was a period of a few months when I didn't switch it on.

    I am also not sure, pardon the noobness but won't fungus spread? I checked my older lenses and it doesn't seem like there's any fungus. In any case, I'm worried about fungus spreading so I'm considering separating my film and digital stuff to 2 separate cabinets.

    Can anyone advise?

    Thanks in advance

    What I've learned from others is that you should not keep your fungus ridden old lenses (or those that are suspected of) in the new cabi with your new lenses. I have 2 dry cabi, 40L and the new 100L, both digicab. Get the 100L if you think you will be getting more equipment in the near future. My old 40L cabi is now utilised for storage of my medicine, harddisk and PnS camera. May try putting in herbs and ginseng in the future

    No, it is ok to put fungus lens(es) and non-fungus lens(es) together. The dry humidity environment inside DryCab will prevent/slowing down fungus' growth.
