    it is better if you keep ur camera in air cond room. because it is less humid and wont grow fungus. If you on aircon 24/7. you dont really need the dry cabinet.
    One day you'll see.

    Your gears will be kept cool... and when you take them out, condensation... something to note... (allow them to be back at room temperature first)

    Only if you keep aircon on 24/7. Otherwise, after you turn the aircon off, moisture will start condensing on your equipment.

    OTOH, keeping dry box in aircon room should be fine.

    I set my camera room's AC to Dry Mode, & temp at 23. So it is not running all the time, only when temp creeps up above 23... this ensures constant low humidity & reasonable power consumption...

    Otherwise, I think a dry cab in a normal room should do alright as well..
    What I failed to see, was what I failed to observe...

    I place my cabi in air-con room too. According to manual, your air-con shd not blow directly at it.
