    Hi CS TAN,

    haha I was thinking of that too "the straps"....but forget.

    It is it impossible to detach and attach everytime we use the camera (sooner or later I blindfold also know how to detach and attach to the camera )
    Maybe just use a soft clothes to wipe the straps, camera before putting in cabi.

    "putting neck strap and hand strap" I put them inside too, not problem. If it is wet, air it before putting it in.

    Hi KY1977,

    Now the RH% drop till 53%, and my second worry comes~ what if it keep dropping
    Now the setting is at this direction.

    Hi rvxing,
    YES ! the sponge was inside! ..... so this is what causing the RH% to drop so slow?

    Hmmm... seems like you're pretty impatient huh? Just don't expect to see the level drop like a tachometer when clutching in.

    If you find it's too slow for your comfort, like some bros suggested, turn it to max and then adjust it accordingly once it stabilises (the knob will still goes to 11-12o'clock eventually).

    And yes, you can dump in your equipment now, no need to wait. Cheers!

    Fine tune bro, this is an analogue tuner... you'd need to fine tune! It all depends on your ambient temperature, your amount of equipment, your usage pattern and the sealings around your digicab. No hard and fast rule on the knob position but generally around 11-12o'clock.

    stay around 45%, the AD100 I used, after it reaches 50%, I move the knob to 9~9.30 position to keep it around 45%. Slightly before the line between blue and green.

    For your case, let it drop to 45% before you move the knob to the said position. For my case, I'd been using the cabi for a long time, nothing in there is "wet", all dried up. When I open the cabi, I only introduce small amount moisture for it to dry, so the drying speed will be faster.

    Note, %RH will change with temperature by about 2~3%RH / degC change.

    Hi rvxing, how to let it drop to 45%? It had been in 50%~51% for 3-4 days now. So if need it drop to 45% I should turn the knob which direction?

    P.S. noted when every I open the door took out cam and then put in the RH% will go up to around 54% then slowly drop back to 50%.

    a question for the TS, do u lock your dry cab? as in turn the key. for me i am using the digicab 30L and the magnetic seal for the door itself is not very tight and my dry cab' humi lvl stay high until i lock it.

    do try to lock it and not just rely on the door magnetic seal to keep it air tight

    Move the knob to the red zone @ 3 o'clock for the time being, I guess the sponge is not completely dry up and make sure you lock door.

    When it is totally dry up @ max full power (fully clockwise), it can goes to around 20+%RH, as this cabi is designed to keep items like medicines, seeds, etc below 30%RH

    Thanks nixontkl for the info, I never lock the cabi and never thought that it will also effect the cabi RH% From today onwards I'll keep it lock when ever close the door.

    Hi rvxing, yesterday night I set the knob to at the line point inbetween the blue and the red colour area (like 2pm) and the RH% morning drop to 42%. Well today I brought my cam out for shooting now I put it in cabi the RH% go up to 56%, will monitor it again.
