    Default Why there is strange smell in dry cabi

    Hi

    Sorry if this is on the wrong section. Recently, I realised there is a strange smell in my dry cabi, something like rotten egg. I clean my lens with slight wet cloth, dry abit and put it into the dry cabi after I use them. Recently, I put a film loaded Nikon FM inside. Could the smell from the film ? Thanks

    was it supposed to smell of CK?

    did you put any pouch or bags in? do not tell me there is a sweaty strap in there.

    It is the smell of the film especially if u r using Fuji film. Velvia will produce a much stronger stench.

    To confirm, open up your FM back cover to smell it

    I do not have the right descriptive word for the smell. It is just closed to that smell.

    Hmm ... try and keep your rotten eegs with film pulled out of it's canisters. Hopefully, the rotten eggs will take on the wonderful smell of the feelem.
