Menstrual Pads for Drying Lenses

An extract from an article being prepared titled  “11 odd items i use in Timelapse”

2-Menstrual Pads:

Yes, much better than those conventional silica gel bags that often need to be dehumidified, I use sanitary pads for two things, the first is to reduce humidity from sealed hard cases since condensation can cripple your lens for hours. Second, it is  great in helping lenses with water leaked inside to dry faster.

Usually the spot forms on the next “Sunny” shoot. So even if no signs of water or humidity are showing directly after the “humid” shoot. one is adviced to dehumidify in all cases.

Taditional desiccants, great but need a tedious dehumidification from time to time
