When the box become too dry it will damage the rubber on your camera.

ooh! i'll try to check out the MS color in AMK hub the next time i go there then! ty
-1st week, using the 'sd' dehumidifier in the dry box, with my camera &
-5th week, using the 'sd' dehumidifier in ziplock bag (with my camera too)...
-both are in the same cabinet. each experiment lasts 4 weeks.
both readings came out at that RH% i mentioned...
but its just a testing i did, just in case i have to travel, & cannot simply lug my dry cabinet along wherever i go.
Personally, I don't drag any dehumidifying stuffs around when traveling. Traveling is the opposite of storing, plenty of fresh air and sun, no need for anything related to long term storage.
You certainly did a good comparison. Thanks
OK, I am now trying this and see the result too. Then I can figure out adjustment in my tupperware.
- 2 layers of Raynolds ziplock (non deflate, leave air inside).
- 1 sachet Fairprice Jumbo dehumidifier.
- 1x videocam pouch and videocam that has been in open for 1 week (forgotten to keep).
- 1 hygrometer inside, wire probe located to the pouch and vcam end.
Calcium Chloride is also commonly used as an additive in swimming pool water as it increases the "Calcium Hardness" value for the water. Low Calcium Hardness values in pool water cause pool water to be corrosive on equipment, pumps and metal fittings.
This chloride thing.... Don't know lah.
You all go and pour the dissolved liquid from thirsty hippo to you camera and clothing and hands. Then let me know the outcome
You will then notice that is not ordinary liquid, it is very soapy, slimy and does not evaporate easily.
