I haven't tried testing it with another humidity meter (hygrometer, I think!) or turning it off. Of course, the humidity rises when I open the door.

I wonder if lenses should be stored with or without caps either end? What do you think?

How do guys with a solitary mirrorless camera and lens ensure fungus free zone in the cupboard? Considering this needs power all the time.

I just have the kit lens and it is attached to the camera. I am currently keeping the entire thing along with the bag - it's a small bag. I am not inclined to keep my Nikon DSLR and it's various lenses in it, as fungus has already gotten into them and i intend to sell them off once i get used to the Sony.

Buy some silica gel and toss it inside the camera bag. You can even consider keeping it in an airtight plastic container - the kind you use in the kitchen.

Yet, investing in a dry cabinet is the best solution. I too have a solitary mirrorless camera.

If it fits, it seems like quite a good idea to dry the bag out sometimes. Hey, maybe an hour in the sun might be just as good as a day in the cabinet!
