    me searching for one too. can recommend a size? let's say have the following things to put in:
    3 slr bodies, 2 compact cams
    1 70-200 2.8
    1 50-500 (bigma)
    4 med-size lens(about 25-30cmtall)
    20 zip disks + 2 zip drives (storage purpose, seldom used)
    2 flashes

    and also, what's the diff among AD series, analog series, DHC series, and wide series? so many choices, a bit blur blur. which one is more commonly used? thanks!

    For you case at least 100L. And I can only recomm DHC pro version.

    AD is digital LCD without backlite and wide one I think only DHC.

    YMMV

    Get the DHC version, forget the AD series. A DHC-80 or DHC-100 would seems to fit your bill totally.

    Is the DHC version better than the AD version.
    What's the price for something around 40-60L

    Yes, DHC is the professional series, more expensive by a bit, but lasts a long way.

    DHC-60 shld be around $220? I forgot the last MO I did is how much, you can do a search on my past DigiCabi MO threads (look for threads started by espn, not _espn_).

    according to digihub, smallest DHC is 40L eh.

    Not only that, you need not turn the dial inside the cabinet, wait for the humidity level to settle then adjust again. Once set on the DHC, the humidity will always be kept at the level.

    Also the trays I believe on the DHC are drawable, comes with a cool black coloured finish as well.

    The DHC humidity controls are set outside of the cabinet itself, via controls.
