Ya... to low will dry up the lubricant in the camera/lens, among other things...

Open your cabinet every once in awhile to allow moist air to get in? ;)

Anyway, try to play ard with the knob that controls the RH of your box. That might help. :)

Well .... my cabinet comes without any knob for adjustment. The RH stays around 35% all the time when the door is closed.

Is this considered too "dry" for the lenses and cameras ?
