Thread: Do you take off your camera strap?

    Default Do you take off your camera strap?

    Do you take off your camera strap before putting the camera into the drybox or cabinet? Will a sweat drenched camera strap caused fungus to grow?

    For me i dont really mind this(putting tgt /w dSLR) because i dont think my strap contains sweat as i do not hang around my neck. I think if you sling the strap around ur arms(as u hold the cam) it should be fine.

    The moisture on the strap will not cause fungus to grow, it will just cause your drybox to work a little harder to bring down the humidity to the set level.

    I think mould is a more appropriate word to use then fungus..
    Yes, moisture is one big factor that causes it.

    I leave my stuffs (including the strap) in the drycabi and let it do all the work....
