    what are the gears you have? and what other addition you foresee in the next few years? 30L is the basic entry level size, cannot really put alot of things... perhaps if you plan to add to your gears over time then you should consider getting 50L and above...

    atm, my current current gear is canon 550d, 18-270mm tamron
    would be sticking to this body for quite sometime as to gain exp instead of jumping to semi-pro series.

    If thats the case..a 40L cabinet is definitely more than enough.. after which u can still store..2-3 lenses comfortably.
    (Even more if u decided to squeeze them together)

    You have to leave it on all the time like the fridge. What's the point if the humidity keeps going up when you leave the house. The cost needed to operate the dry cabinet is very low. Guess you have to convince your father on this point

    Keep it on, I read that they consume very little power. If on and off, I'm not sure good for the cam or not. Let the pro comment on this one.
