I’ve bought a vintage film camera, and it has slight fungi inside the lens, but almost unnoticeable. I’m not sure if I can put it into the dry cabinet where my DSLR and lenses are. Can they transfer to other cameras and lenses in the same dry cabinet?

Thanks!

Fungus spores are already everywhere, so your DSLR and its lenses are already infected (and probably were since construction). But fungus needs high humidity to grow (which is why it's relatively rare to see it, except in humid climates).

So I think it very unlikely that your DSLR will start showing fungus growth from being stocked (dry) near an infected camera.
