    I dun think it matters. But i heard from people who will remove lens / rear lens caps to get *better* drying..

    The only problem i foresee is sometimes i have to reach backwards to grab a lens and i accidentally touch the glass

    Put the knob to 10 o'clock and turn on for abt 6~10hrs b4 you put your stuff in. If you put in paper or cardboard, the RH will drop very slow bcos a lot of moisture in them. Once, the RH reach 50% +/-, turn the knob to abt 9 o'clock. Recommended range for lens and camera is 45%~55%.

    hi guys,

    i was wondering if i need a dry cabi for my camera, which is just a prosumer(6500FD)?
    i guess there wouldnt be much stuff to be put in except for the camera itself and some filters and perhaps the batteries..

    if so, during the sitex, is there a specific booth(name) that i can look for if i were to purchase a digi cab?

    thanks so much for the help..

    Prefer digital..
    As it shows the exact RH on the LCD.
    Though it needs battery to operate.

    Just a personal preference.

    I just went down to Digihub office 2 days ago to have my damaged dehumidifying unit changed due to a power surge from lightning strike. There u can see all sizes lah. Spare parts are also everywhere. Prices are controlled.

    Other camera shops also selling the 30L capacity ones. If you are going to suntec carrefour, maybe you can try TK which is just across the overhead-bridge
    Let's get rolling :)

    Toyo Living is one of the best.
    Made in Japan. Costly.
    No longer carried by Cathay Photo.

    Now they have Akarui.
    I think made in China.
    Looks worse than Toyo Living.

    Well I guess they make more selling the Akarui or Toyo Living requires them to commit to sell too large a target number. So they gave it up.
