    asap! if cost is a concern, can get a portable dry box first. Saw one at BIG harbourfront store selling at $19.90. Tough and good with humidity meter. I got exactly the same at $29

    Get one real soon....like tmrw if possible.

    The longer you delay, the higher the possibility you have of a potential shitake farm.

    The cheapest DSLR with lens is around 10 times more than what you would pay for a reasonable Drycab that goes for $100++.

    Try Cathay for the electronic ones. If you want to shop around, there are alot of brands available.

    There's a little dial/digital to tell you the relative humidity in in the box.

    Maintain the humidity between 40 to 50%.

    As all of the photogs have mentioned. Go get one ASAP.

    I got one whilst waiting for my cam body to arrive and it was a good investment. At least I dun have to worry about the sillica get changing colour or when I need to dry the gel or buy new gel...

    Even whilst using sillica gel, the possibility of fungus attacks is high as it does not dry the box enuff. One fren of mine suffered some bad attacks before realising that such methods dun work (at least not for Singapore)

    Many thanks for the advise guys. Damn, I'm only free for shop by next week. I was wondering does it help if I put some silica gel inside my cambag?

    if your room is air conditioned then you can wait a little

    the air con makes the air dry

    a silly question: do I need to take the silica gel out of the transparent nylon box first?
