    need to change and mircro wave one ar. i dunno how dry box works. just know that dry-cabi (which is more expensive and usually bigger.) is you plug and on it to adjust the humidity and stuffs.

    guys, you think if i get a 400d kit FIRST, no need drybox/cabi yet right? will be using quite often, then mayb if i get my 2nd lens then if got the funds, go for a drybox/cabi as i will not be using both lens all the time.
    One day you'll see.

    hi there,

    im also a student. final year student though

    im also on low budget. I have a 400D and 2 lens so where do I keep them?

    In a 'lock n lock' air tight box with a sachet of 'thirsty hippo'. so far so good.

    Judging by how long the thirty hippo can last, im sure the humidity is kept really low

    Digicabio does come with an instruction "sheet".
    It states the recommended range (45%-55%), and how to adjust the knob in the cabi for higher or lower RH, more like trial n error. (If you are not using the higher end series, the higher end series let you set the humidity value at the control panel )

    Just to share:
    I am using Digi Cabi DB-036 30L with digital Meter. Bought it for less than $100 IIRC few months ago.

    Inside is 1 Pro-consumer and a few 50pcs spindle of TY DVD+Rs. :P
    My Setting mading set at 42%, 29*C.
