Hi I need some help here.

I just bought the Akarui analogue dry cabinet. I set the switch to "M"... It's about the 3rd day now and the RH reading has dropped and stabled at a little below 40. Is this a good RH to maintain? I thought I read somewhere here that it is good to keep between 45-50... What can I do?

Thanks!

I bought a dry cabinet 1 week ago. According to the instructions. RH 40 to 50 is good for camera products.:thumbsup:

Isn't there any manual to read? It should tell you which target RH to use for different purposes and also how to adjust the cabinet.

If you open the door of cabinet regularly, M setting will be better.

Below 40% is usually not recommended as your camera's zoom/MF rings may get quite stiff or so I read.

anybody knows why 40% - 50% is recommended? my engineer brain tells me that it would be good to be as low as possible - less humidity = less chances of fungi growth & less corrosion

Too dry seals and lubricants dry up; too moist and you will have fungus or corrosion.
