Is the first enemy of the camera, so we need to be careful and protect our pricey gear that we buy on our hard earn money, when not in use we must store it in a safe place, we must make or buy a dry box, because if the fungus accumulated to the camera and lens, it will have effect to the quality and functionality of our gears
You can buy simply a ready made dry box, or you can do it yourself cost cutting,here i will make a list of the DIY dry box that you can buy, maybe it is existing on your house just find it.
- Plastic Food Container - Pick the Large enough to fit your gears, the container must be seald air tight.
- Dehumidifier - Like the one on my video above, can use for 1 to 3 months. you can buy it online or on your favorite DIY Stores.
- Hygrometer - A hygrometer is used to measure the amount of water vapor in the air (moisture) about around 35% to 45% RH Level is recommended,
if you stored your gear that must be maitained because fungus and mould thrives in dark to humid places where there is little or no movement of air, like inside our camera.
- Silica Gel - Optional silaca gel known to absorb moiture in the air, if the hygrometer measured above 45% RH Level add a silica gel can bring it back to recommended RH level.
