Hi all.

When using a drybox, which is more important - keeping the camera dry or the lens?
Just in case I'm running out of room temporarily?

thanks!

Do you mean drycab?
Of course keep the camera & lenses in it. To low humidity will really dry up the oil & rubber seals. Keep th RH around 45% ;)

I think what enewmen meant is that's he's running out of space in his dry cabinet/box and is wondering if it is more important to keep the camera or lenses under controlled humidity.

Second on that.

If your camera body is cheaper and easier to get, then by all means, protect your lens collection first. Anyway, you could always get another drybox cheaply just in case your current drybox run out of space.

Ya, I got what he meant, that's why I said camera & lenses ;)
