Keeping the humidor filled isn't too much of a problem, but mine got
mildew-y and trying to get rid of that was the challenge.
I think the Sigma MV-95 is 5-10 dB more sensitive (relative to
recorded fluxivity) than the Plastiform. It's also about 9-12 dB more
expensive - in the Studer list group buy it was about $229 US IIRC,
the magnifier was $88 CAD delivered with reticle.
