Fight lens fungus with this new electronic dry cabinet for photo gear



Many Leica shooters who are using old M lenses know that lens fungus could be a problem, especially in areas with tropical climate and high humidity. Today B&H started selling these new electronic dry cabinets for lenses, photographic gear and other equipment. Two different models are available: 30L and 80L. Additional information:


Ruggard Electronic Dry Cabinet 30L


Protect your lenses, photographic and optical equipment, mobile electronics, and other valuable accessories from excessive moisture, dirt, and dust with the Ruggard 30L Electronic Dry Cabinet. The cabinet's fast-acting TE Cooling Wafer regulates the interior's relative humidity from 25-60% to help prevent fungus and corrosion that can damage your gear. Humidity adjustments take place over a 1 to 3-hour period.

Fully-featured, the cabinet has a lockable, rubber-sealed glass door, with 2 two keys, and a front handle. A large, dimmable LCD displays ambient temperature (in Fahrenheit or Celsius), relative humidity, and other settings. Interior LED lights make viewing and finding gear easier. Both the base and the adjustable sliding shelf are padded to help guard against scratches, while the shelf's padding is contoured to accommodate lenses.

The Electronic Drying Cabinet is powered by an included multi-voltage power supply. In addition to being near-silent, without a fan or compressor to make noise, the unit is also dripless, eliminating the need for a water tray. To prevent unwanted movement, the bottom of the cabinet has four rubber feet.
