I know it works coz back at info max the reading was 44 % and here inside our bedroom if I bring it out it reads 24%. And when I put it inside the box, that's when it begins to go to zero. Thanks Oculus.

Okay, that means you're better off taking the gel out, 0% is obviously way too dry :)

You're lucky, you have a virtual dry room :).  The ambient readings at my bedroom here in the province range from from 42 at daytime to 56 at night shooting up to 60-70 when its raining outside. You will probably have to return the silica gel inside your box during the rainy season when its more humid.

Hi again. I don't know what else to do. This afternoon I looked at the lock and lock diy drybox and the hygro read zero RH again! I opened the box for five minutes and went around the house with the meter. It's fine coz it changes it's readings as I go around. I don't have any silica inside the box anymore. Now it reads 24 % RH. But I am afraid tomorrow, it will read zero again. Is there something wrong somewhere? Thanks.

I really suspect that your hygro's busted and is taking abnormally low readings.  As I said in a previous post, try to take readings at areas where there is high humidity.  Bring it with you in the bathroom close the door and window and put the hygro in a place where it won't get directly splattered with water, take a hot shower or bath, observe the readings.  If it doesn't go up to 70% and above there really is something wrong with your hygro. :)

I took it out of the room and it read 30+ and 24 inside which I believe is ok since I have the ac running and it dries up the air.

i think the your hygrometer is not properly calibrated anymore.  to give a comparison, my hygro registers 45 to 65 rh.  it reached 70 only once but it was really hot & humid at that time. w/ the aircon on,  it registers 45 to 51 RH. hope this helps. :)

at our office RH/Temp is monitored closely, so all meters are sent for calibration every 6months or 1year.... this helps ensure that everything is working :)

So i guess its not really adviseable to change lenses while at the beach?

Last year in bora i saw this photographer.. he kept on changing lenses.. di ba delikado yun? sa may beach sya while doing it..
