How dry should a dry box be?
Sorry if it sounds like a stupid question...
but my dry box has this meter reading from 0 to 100 (i assume it's humidity level) and i can set it to high, med, low etc... which changes the meter reading gradually..
but i'm keeping a digicam inside... and a nikon F8 /w lenses.
How much should i lower it down to? 30%? 40%?
I know that while high humidity might cause fungi growth, too low might damage the lens, right?

The typically recommended humidity level is 50-60%. Anything less you'd run the risk of drying up the leather & rubber parts on your camera and lens.
