    Hey can i ask what Humidity level must i set for it?

    if i start out with a 30L one, is it good enuff?

    oh, Can i ask if i wipe my camera ( Outer Body )with a wet cloth, (to clean it ) then i leave it in the dry cabinets, will it do any damage?

    What happens if i go out overseas? like a 1week trip.

    Without the Dry cabinets , will the camera spoil?

    how do i maintain it when im overseas?

    1. 40 to 50%. Too low and your lens lubricants could dry out, leather on camera could crack. Too high and it defeats the purpose of having a dry cabinet.

    2. The bigger the better as other stuff eg filters can go into it. If you won't buy any more lenses, then 30L is enough for most people.

    3. Should leave wet items outside to dry first. Eg. a sweaty camera strap. Otherwise you are introducing more moisture to your dry cabinet.

    4. 1 week is still okay. If you are paranoid, just expose your lenses to Sunlight daily as UV rays kill fungi.

    5. You are depending on your luck then. (see answer 4).

    6. For lenses, see answer 4. If you are referring to your dry cabinet, you can leave it alone. It can take care of itself.

    BTW, if you are thinking of buying a digicabi dry cabinet, I highly recommend getting the DHC digital series. The cheaper analogue series requires calibration and constant monitoring which can be quite troublesome.

    Lord Soth's recommendation is spot on. The DHC series is way more convenient and worth the extra price.
