    Default Does P&S cameras like LX-7 require a dry cabinet?

    So i went out with a lady friend for a outing..suddenly she mentioned she want to get a LX-7 type of cameras..so i say not bad...good idea..then she asked me what else required..was thinking of asking her to get a dry cabinet..but then...im thinking..is it really necessary?

    Anyone here uses a PnS camera and get a dry cabinet for it?

    As far as i know..back when i used a P&S..dun remember buying one leh..

    Please dun flame me for anything..Just trying to answer that friend of mine.

    Ask you a simple question.

    What is a LX7. isit a camera? i think it is. so there.

    Does it matter if its FF, Mirrorless, M4/3, APSC or PNS? But the question is..if you think its not worth it to buy a cabinet just to keep a Lx7 (which is not very expensive as compared) Then sure. By all means. Its really up to the user. For me i wont. (and since its so light and small..very easy to carry around...just use it regularly..it should be fine.)

    Fungus is not that picky that it would only grow on L glass. Whether it's a dry cabinet or a sandwich box with silica pack - important is lower, controlled humidity for extended storage.

    Its really personal preferences. Its not a must and its not a need in the first place. Even if one has 1 camera or afew and owns all the lens in the world..

    But well. If u need a answer from me. According to what you said above. I will not buy a cabinet nor a dry box or anything. If i only had a Lx7 at home.

    If thats the case. I think she would use it often. So to me. No worries.

    Whats there to explain. just tell her no need. If she want to believe others or still decide to buy.. Then seriously. What to do? Let her learn the hard way then.
    Or perhaps if you still want or really want to be a white knight or hero...then buy the useless stuff from her lo..if she did.

    It's like using a canon (no pun intended) to kill a rat. Don't think so a dry cabinet is needed. If room is air conditioned fungus is unlikely to grow. At most just keep in office drawer

    Yes i've seen one too.

    Besides using it to keep her compact digital leica when not in use, my wife uses her own dri-cab to store all her personal jewellery.

    A small dry box or a seal plastic box with thirsty hippo will be enough.
