The Mennon Desiccant Lens Case protects against the three major threats to the functionality of stored lenses: Rough Mechanical Impact, Fine Mechanical Impact, and Humidity. Typical storage of your lenses may not protect the glass or lens body from getting scratched by sharp dust or sand particles, being dropped and even in humid environments. With the Mennon Desiccant Lens Case you can keep your lens Dry and Scratch free from the elements. Mennon provides Desiccant Lens Cases of the DLC series for nearly all exchangeable camera lenses in the market.
The Case Wall is about 2.5mm thick and made of semitransparent, high strength, antistatic plastic. It protects the camera lens against damage by all kinds of pressure, impacts, dirt, dust, water, mud or by electrostatic discharge in heavy duty outdoor employments in difficult climates.• The Lens Mount emulates the basic mechanics of the most frequent lens mounts. The middle part of the DLC product designations indicates which lens mount type can be mounted.
The Threaded Cover Plate separates the lens compartment from the Desiccant Container which is filled with Silica Gel Beads. Some of the beads are do ped with a non-toxic moisture indicator: They are intensely orange, when they are totally dry. The more water the beads absorb, the more the orange color vanishes.With the Thread you can close the DLC fast and safely. The Rubber Ring provides an airtight seal, keeping the interior dry indefinitely, also in very humid or even wet environment, as long as the thread is properly screwed in.
