ok. i did that. then what's the use of the hygrometer? to show how cheem the case is ah? :p

anyway, the needle was pointing to 50% (blue indicator), now i think it's pointing at 60% (red indicator). so what do i do? what percentage should the needle be pointing at? how do i make the indicator point back to 50%? put in silica gel???


ya la. i know i got this thing for some time, now then take out and use :sticktong

I think no need to put in silica gel, if you use this for transportation of your gear (eg. on a trip) ... you should have an electronic drybox or something already at home if you have a reasonable amount of camera gear.

However, if you intend to use this for storage, perhaps you can buy a tin of silica gel from a photo shop (or even places like Carrefour), get a few plastic film canisters, punch a few small holes in them, and fill up with silica gel, and put inside the case with your gear.

Only thing is that I'm not sure how effective it would be with all that foam inside the case.

using it as storage. too heavy for me to lug around to transport my gear! what i did was to wrap some silica gel in tissue and put it in the case. seems to work so far... ;)

thanks for your tip! might try the film canisters once the ones in the tissue lose their effect...
