He opened the case & the hygrometer said 20% , but reached 50% & still rising within within just a few minutes. Ambient humidity was over 90%. He then explained how one wet season was sufficient to get mould/fungus growing between the coatings of lenses, ruining them, & corrosion inside cameras. Well I don't mind admitting that it was an issue I had never considered, & that he put the wind up me. Seeings we are likely to see a lot more high humidity I thought it prudent to take some preventive action. The Pelican case & Silica gel arrived from ebay this morning. The mini Hygrometer (2 for $8!) should get her next week. Wife agreed to it being an early birthday pressie.

    Been using the same Pelican 1520 for my gear around 10 years now, 100% the best investment, it has saved my gear time and time again, on a very steep track ive had the whole thing fall out of the back of the car bouncing onto rocks, its had heaps of exposure to beach conditions (also falling out of the car onto sand).

    Even just a week ago, a whole heap of beach sand somehow got dumped all over it in the back of the car, i just put the whole case on the ground, and hosed it off, no ingress of water or sand what so ever, my internal foam is looking a bit sad after all these years use, but still does the same job and nothing inside has ever got damaged.

    I am so mad at myself. The camera case snagged on a cupboard as I was bringing it inside and it hit the ground with a mighty bang. Since then the focus is soft at best using any lens.

    This is the best I can get, with manual focus, with my poor eyesight. I will have to send the camera away for repair. I have even enhanced the pic.

    That's a bugger mudnut, hope it can be sorted without too much pain. I've come close to doing much the same a few times. I can't remember what camera you have, but I can recommend a camera repair place I used in Melbourne. I thought the sensor on my camera was wrecked after someone who should have known better (an ex professional photographer) managed to get a few drops of red wine on the sensor which had dried & gone hard. This happened in Tassie, & best I could find there were places who would send the camera away , taking several weeks. Turned our the place I used in Melbourne was where they would have sent it to.They quoted me a reasonable price, I took it in, swanned around the local shops & cafes for a couple of hours & then picked it up, They did a marvellous job, & charged me less than the quote!

    Thanks, Cuppa. It will have to wait until we go to see the Outlaws. Did you make an appointment or just rock up?

    I phoned & made an appointment. You should phone them anyway to tell them what camera it is & what he issue is to ensure it's something they can do.

    @mudnut - you can definitely look at repair. Take images, record the settings and include them when you make the appointments. eg. that image above looks super noisey. What are the other settings? Is anything registering as unusual?
    Had a beaut GU with 6.5 Chev TD, but sold the soul and now driving a 79 series dual cab. Yes, a Tojo on the Patrol Forum! Also having fun trying to build the ultimate Expedition Grade storage box.

    Thanks for the advice. I have pics on a card to show the local repairer (who I just found out about). Hopefully I will see him this week.

    Camera is back. It had a clean and adjustment. Took a quick snap through a trellis to get this little fella on the front lawn. It was just on the sports setting as I didn't have time to muck around before the bunny fled. The camera did quite a good job of focusing through all the other objects in its path.
