By the way,if I had to put my camera in a dry box,should I take out the batteries?Or it would just be fine to leave them inside the camera?
Thanks.

quick question to those who own a Eureka drybox: can i set dial to a point anywhere between M and H for example o dapat ba exacto sa M or H lang? am having some difficulty dialing in the RH kasi.

thanks.

Hi,

what is the recommended size of a drybox for the gears:

Canon 5D Mark II
Canon 7D
17-40
24-70
70-200
Probably adding another prime lens
Flash
Etc.

Thanks!

A good gauge would be a cabinet bigger than the camera bag you're using to haul all your gear.  Although, in my experience, it's always nice to get a cabinet bigger than your current requirement - cause you'll eventually use it for other valuables as well (leather, jewelries, etc.)  ;)

Have a blessed day!

Thank you very much! Still in the process of deciding which size to get. This helped a lot!

go for the biggest one.

your gear alone would probably take half of the space. then in the future, in case you add more lens, camera body, etc. you have ample space even for other stuff.

better to have more than enough space than going to the trouble of selling your old drybox and buying a bigger one or having 2 dryboxes  ;)

I was able to achieve 40-50% relative humidity using this setting but now it is more than 70%. Would anyone know what I can do to rectify this?

I'm still reading this thread, now on page 5.

Just wondering if a thing like this is fine to be used in a dry box. It's a room dehumidifier with gallons of capacity.

Just buy a cat litter crystals, they suck up humidity and last for many years..use like a shoe box and fill it half way and put it in the cabinet where you store your equipment..Grind them to a fine powder and use it in crevices where the "kuting" lay their eggs and they die..

BUt those "kuting litters" have ingredients in them that are corrosive to gear.
