Truth alert: Every instrument has its range of acceptable reading and nothing is perfectly accurate. point is digital easy to read and design for convenience. rather then thinking of or worrying abt the accuracy and scare gear got fungus..i rather not to owe any piece of gear at all then....they all have a range and if its within range so why need to go down to the 0.1 or anything for the matter abt accuracy?
Are u a physicist? or a Mathematicians?
People don't realise that a digital hygrometer showing 2 dec places doesn't mean it's accurate to 2 dec places.
They should not be misled into thinking so.
Having more significant digits means nothing if two digital hygrometers vary by more than 10%.
When will people get the idea that more digits in a digital display does not mean more accuracy, unless you're willing to pay a lot for a well-calibrated instrument?
How many people understand that it's the sensor which drives accuracy to begin with, not the digital conversion.
When will people see that the notion "if it's digital, it must be more accurate than analog" is not always the case. This is a misconception, no different from thinking that if a person is from middle east, he must be anti-western. True in some cases, but still an unjustified sweeping statement.

even if the person thinks a digital one is more accurate, what has it got to do with you? why must u be so "amazed" that u start this thread?
if u are trying to tell people that digital are no diff to analog hygrometers in terms of accuracy, you can provide some good reads and just share the info in a neutral manner. don't have to be so "amazed".
cameras are not made of tofu
where is geekbrains?
If you don't prove yourself, that just shows you don't know any better, and you can only give an unsubstantiated boast of your own knowledge.

wondering why we need pin-point accuracy in measuring humidity in our dry cabs.
get over yourself. your thread did not contribute a single bit to this forum. if anything, this should be posted in kopitiam as it is totally irrelevant to photography.
This thread serves no purpose other then as a flame bait. Thread closed and infraction issued.
