    Default Dry cabinet ?

    Guys I m thinking of investing into a M43 camera soon and pretty sure I would get the GF3 else if budget allows the newer GF5 but before I get it I am interested in seeking seniors advice on whether I must buy a dry cabinet and if no what would be my alternative?

    A dry cabinet is like an insurance. It keeps fungus away.

    However if you do not have a lot of equipment (more than a body and 3 lenses), if you keep your equipment in an aircon room, use it at least once a month, not stored in a dark cupboard, then I guess not.

    Once fungus starts, it's very hard to get rid of them. Fungus eats away the lens coating and even the glass i.e. permanent damage.
