Is Dry Box Good enough?
Hi all, just last week I purchase my very very first DSLR 350D and some accessories and currently BROKE!!! Just bought a Drybox from MS color with Silica Gel. Is dry box good enough to store my cam and accessories in terms of dryness?

Re: Is Dry Box Good enough?
Personally I have been using dry boxes since the early days of SLRs. I still use it these days when I have my gear at home. At my office I really don't keep my stuff in a box. Another reason for this is I keep my gear clean everytime I am finish with using it. And I use my gear at least 2-3 times per week as I do product shoot in my office or it is stuff into my haversack to go walk about with me on weekends when I want to go shoot about town.

I don't put my flash in a box since my office and room is air con..it should be fine.
The only thing I always recall or notice about keeping my gear in good order is about how often i use them. For me, anything you don't use often enough, over time, they tend to age, get mouldy or deteriorate alot faster then when you use them.
But that's just me.
