Humidity is invisible and the greatest natural harm to photography equipment.

Humidity is invisible to the naked eyes and is the greatest enemy of photography equipment. Humidity is the water vapor in the air in gaseous state and is invisible. Combining high relative humidity levels with drastic temperature changes, condensation can occur on lens surfaces and internal circuit boards. When condensation sets, it could lead to problems with mold, corrosion, decay, oxidation, rust and other moisture-related deterioration on all photo equipment.

How does moisture affect you or your optical lens equipment?

Upon finishing a shoot at location where temperature and relative humidity were quite high, equipment that has already soaked up moisture are stored in protective bags and/or cases to protect it from physical damages. From the hot and humid environment, those equipment are transported to a cool place such as an air conditioned car or house. With the temperature cooling, the humidity soaked up by your equipment becomes condensation, especially in discreet areas you cannot see during your regular equipment maintenance and cleaning process.

Condensation causes damage on optical lens equipment.

As condensation collect over time, fungus, rust, oxidation, and mold begins to develop. Before long performance issues and failures will appear. The damage caused by humidity does not distinguish from equipment manufacturer or any particular fields. All are susceptible to the harm caused by humidity.

Most common causes of photography and cinematography equipment damage are fungus development on lens, lens glue separation, worn-off coating, aperture failure, focus ring too tight, lens oil leakage, infinity focus failure, dust particles, and damaged coating. 

As optical lenses are exposed to more than 60% RH, they are threaten by fungus, which causes irreversible damages  such as etching on the lens. Fungus develops and proliferated at 60%RH & 12℃~38℃. The rate of fungus growth will speed up at 80%-95% RH. Once fungus develops on the lens, the photos/images taken will lose significant resolution and quality.

When not in use, photography and cinematography equipment should be stored in an environment with a humidity range between 40%-50% RH.

Traditionally, photography enthusiasts and professionals protect their expensive equipment from moisture damages by placing them in a basic plastic box within desiccants. But the downside to the desiccants are that there is no control of optimal storage environment. Fresh desiccants can create an environment that is too dry. After a while the desiccants will absorb moisture and need to be be renewed or else the desiccants will cause humidity level inside the plastic box to be higher than optimal storage environment.

With Eureka Dry Tech's Auto Dry Cabinet & Auto Dry Box products, there are no consumable parts to worry about. Humidity levels are automatically maintained at the optimal storage environment of 40%~50%RH. Simply store all of your equipment immediately returning from the field and remove the any moisture absorbed. Eureka's Auto Dry Box moisture control technology will do all the work while maintaining your equipment in optimal storage conditions when not in use.

Eureka Auto Dry Box and Dry Cabinet Advantage

Eureka Auto Dry Box and Dry Cabinet's advantage over traditional storage methods are:

  • No consumable parts or desiccant bags to replace.
  • Fully automatic operation, simply set to desired RH% level and store your equipment.
  • No water tanks to empty, maintenance and worry free operation.
  • Continues to absorb moisture even during power outtages.
  • Consumes minimal electricity. 

Optical lenses, digital-controllers, sensors, and processors should be protected in an environment maintained at 40% ~ 50% RH with automatic control. Simply set the desired RH level and place your equipment in our Auto Dry Box and let Eureka's desiccating technology take care of the rest.

Eureka Auto Dry Box is the best solution and simplest way to keep your photography and video production equipment from fungus development, dust, and moisture damages.
