If the dry box is big enough ,it's better to put camera body together.Use the plastic cap for lens too.If got extra cash buy a dry cabinet
as it will control humidity in the cab to keep equipment fungus free. For the time being if you have silica gel sachets put them in dry box,it will absorb moisture in the box.Do not use "hungry hippos" descicants meant for rooms or clothing cabs ,may spill water. :)

Fungus can grow on sensor, AA filter and prism. But if your use your camera regularly, it should be no problem


Thank Q for your valuable information.

Most of the threads regard to the dry box that I read through on CS are talking about fungus on lens, Not on the Body. I thought there might be some other issue.

Now this is clear message.

Thank Q

Fungus is not picky and will grow wherever it finds suitable conditions: organic material, humidity, darkness, still air. Now compare how much you touch your camera body and your lens. The sweat and skin particle from your hands are nice fungus food. The body is far from being airtight and so it's easy for small particle to find their way inside. Just check how many people here complain about dust in viewfinder :)
