    Tune the settings on your dry cabi... it takes some time for it to stabilise properly... change the settings until you get your desired setting.

    hi there!

    and yea, adding onto what zac08 said, its advisable to remove all your equipment from your cabinet... callibrate it to RH 45-50% , then load it up with your equipment. Makes the callibration process faster

    Welcome to Club Snap.

    Check your power supply to the cabinet if you ain't getting the desired reading.

    Use the camera more often, if not you'll see a lot of big elephants in it in no time. A rolling stone gathers no moss. Welcome here!

    So the more appropriate percentage for dry cabinet is around 45-50%?

    newbie here too but managed to set my digi-cabi to maintain around 45%-55%.
    If u're using the digi-cabi, set the control inside to 10 or 11 o'clock.
