    I guess you mean this?

    Carrefour and AMK hub's NTUC do have this dry box.

    But do consider getting a dry cabinet since its worth in investing 1 for your own good.
    Let's get rolling :)

    err.. i guess so,i also not sure, cause i only have like a body and 2 lens so i dun tink i need a dry cabinet as yet, a dry box would do, and also i spent over budget on my camera so i need to get an affordable one, at least for the short run.

    get one with hygrometer. too dry isn't good either. at least it gives you the gauge when to change your silica gels.

    Not good for the rubberised part of your cam...

    I strongly recommend a dry cabinet, get the digicab 30L if you don't want to spend too much, it definitely worth the investment for the protection of your camera and avoid having to upgrade from a dry box at a later stage.

    Don't buy a dry box because it's cheap and ended up spending money on silica beads and waste time on monitoring the humidity.

    A dry cabinet consume very little electricity.
