    Suggest U get at least 60L.

    I'm using one now. Already feeling cramp due to lack of space. I also keep my PnS + U/W strobe light + 400D with 6 lense of difference size in it...... ooh, add it lense hood, filter, batteries + charger, cleaning kit........

    And now you see why I regert didn't get the 80L model....

    Ya get the 60L or 80L depening on your collection and future upgrade. Buy the one with the Digital meter and can set the RH%. Save you alot of trouble trying to arga-arga the RH at 45-50%

    Normally where does fungus grow? On the lens or on the cam body? I have bought a 40D 1+ mths ago but have yet to get a dry cabinet. Is it too late now to get one? I use the cam for more then 2 times a week though.

    Fungus normally starts on the side of the lens and grow inward. If you leave the lens outside at normal room condition, for 1 or 2 weeks or even up to a month, it's still OK. It will really start to get worse if you leave it in the bag or wardrobe where it's most moist and around 30 degrees. For new lens, it's won't grow so fast, maybe takes up to 2 to 3 months exposed to "terok" condition. But don't try....

    It's like insurance. It's never too late to buy. A $100 investment gonna last you for 5 years at least. So work out to be $20 per year. If you giving up the hobby, say a year or 2 later, still can sell it for $30. I'm sure some budget conscious students will want to inherit a second hand not too expensive dry cab.

    I won't bet on the weather in Singapore. Especially the high humidity and the dust flowing around and the high temperature, it's ideal for fungus to grow.

    I see thanks. But do fungus grow on the camera itself?

    Depends on where... on the external parts, you can clean it yourself. But if happens at the mirror or viewfinder assembly area, then it'll depend on the service charges of the camera company.
