I am trying to seek a better understanding why mold can grow on camera equipment. From suite 101's short article, it explains
while i can understand if mold is growing in the camera, then surely there is food in the camera. But i am unsure what in the camera can really provide such sufficient supply of those listed items? unless it is the moisture itself that carries such ingredients?
Tiles, glass, porcelain may seem a little strange, but fungi can stick to surfaces and assimilate many nutrients that dissolve in water: amino acids, sugars, fatty acids, ammonia, nitrates and minerals. If the fungus is growing, then there is enough to eat in that environment.
