Im surprised the majority of you are storing it just as is
. Good, but maybe its also because most of you arent in a coastal area (humid weather). I think i will also get rid of the Ziplock pouch. As mentioned above it also helps keep what is inside permanantly inside.
I dont know how often most of you use your camera. But my usage will be almost every weekend. I understand any sensitive gadget like this if left for months together will develop some sort of fungus problem. So its better to use it at least on a weekly basis.
And like most of you suggested, im extremely careful about maintaining equipment. I always have my lens cap on and just remove it for a couple of shots, then its back on again
But i wonder why some people buy camera cabinets with temp control n stuff. Thats overdoing it right ?
