You usually don't put your gear through as much abuse as your SPH working photogs do you? Rain. Thunderstorm. They will still be there. Can't really help it if equipment doesn't really dry out.
And oh. I think equipment belongs to SPH right? :P Heh. So replacements/repairs SPH pay lor.
What? Whole bag? Then you must be the proud owner of a very huge drycabinet I can never squeeze my CompuRover/7Milhome/SR400 into the cabinet.
Anyone buying dry cabinet anytime soon? Wanna get 40L but there's no delivery...too heavy for me to hand carry. Am thinking if order together can request for their delivery service?
pay a bit more, get 50ltr then delivery is free.
Definitely must get a dry cabinet.
I do not have a dry cabinet nor any dry box. Everything is in my bags. You only use them is you need one, though both are definitely not necessary.
When I first bought my D50, I kept mine in a bag too but I had those "hungry hippo" dehumidifier cost about $3 can last for a few months and you can see the water collected in the tub.
It wasn't air-tight but at least it kept the fungus at bay and protected the bag too.
Since owning my D80, I have bought a dri-cabinet too as I have need to protect my more expensive lenses.
Thus the cost of getting a dri-cabinet is justified.
