hi again,

as i've just gotten my cam, i've kill off almost all my budget, anyway i'm a newbie and the camera is also 2nd hand, but i heard i cant just leave it in my bag rite? so now i need to get a dry box and silicon gel is it? i've heard stuff like heating up the gel in microwave to get rid of the moisture lolx, can i simply replace a new gel rite? oh gosh i'm really a noob in this. hope someone can enlighten me a bit in this regards.

tks a lot!

you can use the microwave method. alternatively you can replace with new gel but that is going to cost you quite abit long term. You should also get a hygrometer to measure the humidity in your dry box.

Drybox w hydrometer 25~30
Silica gel 3.50~5

Use your cam as often as you can and expose the lens under the sun
That should keep the molds out
