    if not free to shop, call digihub. they provide free delivery.

    A dry box or dri-cabi is a must. Suggest to buy the eletric one. If you want to shop yourself, temporary can put camera in containers or ziplog bag with silica. however this is a temporary solution. Get the cabinet ASAP.

    You will need a dry box when your costly photo stuff gets fungus and it costs more than the price of a new dry box to clean/repair the cameras/lenses.
    Anything taken apart will not be the same as brand new condition.

    Personally, I feel that it's time to get one dry cabi when you think that ur "toys" are getting expensive.

    It's always a good investment to protect your gears though of course, unless you can afford it =D

    Due to budget constrain........ I bought a vaccum type box from MS Color for just $18 ... They told me no silicon needed.

    I suggest you get one. Digicab is Ok. Free delivery and 5 year warranty.

    The vacuum box that Whitelion bought should be good enough. As it is vacuum, that would mean that there is nothing inside the box. No moisture - fungus cannot thrive, hence, it should be OK.

    Salonpas, but you need to make sure that the box is large enough to contain all your photographic hardware (eg. camera, accessories, etc.). Or you might buy a few!

    Salonpas, ah OK.
    But I would like to think that your 'barang barang' would get more!

    Cheers!

    don't be cheapo,
    if you send one of you lens for fungus cleaning, it cost around a smaller dry cabi.
    and like ricohflex said, things take apart will not be the same as brand new condition.

    forget about Silica Gel, too much hassle.

    nowadays dry cabi are so affordable, in long run, is still the most cost efficiency and hassle free.
