A couple of my friends bought airtight box for their film camera but I am wondering whether is this necessary for DC as well?

I find that your info is useful .. could you create a procedure or a screenshot on how to do it ... where to get cheap drybox , Silica Gel , etc ...Originally posted by Klause
There is a <20 dollars solution for this... And I'm using it.
Go buy a container[MUST BE AIRTIGHT] .. I got mine @ carrifour for $13. Buy a big one as you won't know if you will be buying more stuff for you cam. Then go to any camera stall and buy Silica Gel(3-4 dollars for 1 BIG bottle).
Then pour abt 1/2 bottle into the container and put all ur equitment there then close it (so it's airtight). This is a home-made drybox. No electricity needed(save power) and works extremely well.
When the silica gel turn to light blue or near white after 2-3 weeks.. you can then pour the other half bottle into the container and seal it up again.
Then go heat up the first half which have turned colour and MAGIC! you can see it turn to the original colour again...
So.. you can recycle the bottle of silica gel again and again... =) Save money/Save electricity
Quite true... stuffs like what's the correct way of loading film etcs.. although simple but don't be surprised that many still dunno what's the correct procedures.Originally posted by megaweb
