    if you've carried on reading, you'd have read that the general advice is to buy a dry cabinet as a long term solution

    Prices of dry box and dry cab have come down so much that IMHO you would only save a few dollars and put in a lot of effort if you actually decide to DIY a dry box.

    Don't forget that it's about controlled conditions of 45-55% RH. A hygrometer is a must to verify the actual conditions inside the box. Thirsty hippo is too thirsty for small plastic container.

    You'd be glad to know that fungus doesn't start growing on the lenses that fast, so just wait for a couple of days when you're free, go get a dry cabinet.


    Airtight box = $15
    Hygrometer = $30
    Silica gel = $5

    TOTAL $50


    30L Dry cabinet ~$110.
