Does the air in your house or apartment gets dry in the winter when you turn the heat on? If so, then you are like me. Usually the humidity in my house is in the range between 50-60%. As soon as the heater is on, the humidity scale drops down to 15-20%. The air is so dry, that I get shocked by a static electricity every time I touch something. Not only that but when I sleep my nose and mouth are getting dry… well… you know how it is. For that reason I usually have several humidifiers which help raising up the humidity back to about 35-40%.
I never had issues before but last winter I noticed something unusual. What I mean? As you will see on the attached pictures and video, almost every single camera body, lens or even chargers, cables, card readers, and some plastic bags, were covered in a white dust. But it is so fine that dust is probably not the correct word. It looks like something between white dust and fog.
