dry cabinets by definition should prevent fungus from growing...

i wouldnt be particularly concerned.

All my Canons are placed together in the Dri-Cab (six of them!!!)..... A couple of my old EF lenses have some fungus on the glasses, but so far no problem after all these years with my other "healthy" lenses lying next to them.

In theory, a functioning dri-cab cannot cure but can prevent fungus from growing...as long as the fungus are not in contact physically with the clean lenses, it should not pass on. To be safe, I keep those "sick" lens in zip-lock bags before storing them in the Dri-Cab.:thumbsup:

i think wat does a dry cab does is that it makes the environment undesirable for fungus to grow.

hence i think there isnt a prob with transmission of fungus.

dry unit prevent fungus from growing only. but if the humidity setting are not good, fungus will grow.

to kill them...I use uv light.

If you know how harmful uv light for your skin, you won't dare to use uv light.

hmm, dun think fungus are air borne diseases... i think its most likely upon contact... perhaps you should try to put some rubber over the lenses before you insert them into your body... ;p

I could be wrong,I thought fungus propagate through spores, which are air borne?:)

i think fungus is airborne ba. but i think the spores are already everywhere. it isnt possible to eliminate them. we can only make the environment unsuitable for them to grow.

I think the other good way besides jus keeping them in a controlled environment, is to take them out in the sun and shoot shoot shoot!

it will improve your skill and also kill and fungus! ;p

thanks to all.
so it basically safe to store all lenses in the drycab??
but i think it is safer to put lenses with fungus in a plastic zip lock bag like razor54 did.
dun want all the "L" kena fungus!! hehe..

i dont know if that is a good idea.

since it is ziploc bag, the moisture might be trapped inside, and hence more fungus growing?

So I believe you know how harmful UV light to your skin ;) :cool: .

It does harm to eyes also. This one I believe you know too.

Not to mention it harm to your cameras and lenses.

there are fungus spores in the air we breathe... so even if you ziplock.. it doesnt mean fungus spores cant get through to your virgin lens... but even if they do, they cant grow because of the dry conditions in the cabinet.
