hi,

just like to check, besides putting camera boody and lenses and film in a dry cabinet, can i put the following in a dry cabinet, or cannot?

1. memory cards, like CF cards, memory sticks, SD cards etc ?
2. mount on external flash
3. batteries: rechargable batteries for cameras, flash etc.

thanks in advance....

put stuff that need to be kept dry.
and do not put stuff that cannot be too dry.
You must also note that different humidity level
is used for different things.

One thing you should not place inside your dry-cabi is leather stuff. It will dry up your leather and your leather will turn brittle over time! Pls note!

That depends on your cabinet settings, if your cabinet is storing stamps and coins, the humidity will not be suitable for cameras.

Different settings will cater for different things.

Yes, I know.
The original thread-starter ask "just like to check, besides putting camera boody and lenses and film in a dry cabinet, can i put the following in a dry cabinet, or cannot?", so he must be using it to store camera body and lenses inside his dry-cabi...so I told him not to put leather products into it also la. :D

about 45-55% humidity
so it is a once-set-always-set thing? if i did not access the cabinet to touch my camera for a month, will the humidity change? or do we have to monitor it every now and then?
