    45-55 is the optimum (supposedly)


    30 is too low, the rubber parts on your camera might start to crack.
    It is such a quiet thing to fall,
    But far more terrible is to admit it

    Another thing you do not want to do is mix equipment.

    I thought I was doing my father a favour when I put his old lenses and cameras into my dry cabinet. Now my set is infected too 

    I have since removed his equipment, but have a question. Beyond wiping the cabinet down with a damp cloth and letting it air for a day, is there anything I need to do before I re-introduce my freshly laundered lenses?

    Infected by?...I have a 20 year old nikkor 35mm f1.4 and an ancient FM2 in the same dry cabinet as the one to store my newer lenses with no problems so far despite the nikkor having slight fungus on one of the 35mm's elements

    Hmm..to my knowledge, it should show constant humidity. Did you remove/add in anything into the cabinet?

    I think you need to check if your cabinet is not leaking.. must be some cold air coming in...

    Hi RoC,
    I brought it down to the shop and they told me the lens has fungus (probably from the old camera).
    Which is why I've separated them. Not right?

    I bought the cabi one month ago. May I know how to check for leakage?

    Pokka mentioned that it should showed constant humidity level. May I know what it is meant by constant? Fluctuation of 2 % is also not normal?

    Thank you all for your response.

    1-2% of fluctuation shld be ok...depending on the number of items u have inside.

    Sometimes when I shoot on a friday, my gear remains in my bag as I shoot again on sat. When i put in the stuff on sat night, the meter changes again..
