    It is amazing how one buys photo equipment to fill up a new empty dry box. And then the next one.......

    I have met at least one with the last choice - have a whole room dehumidified. The stuff that these people have....If you think you got good stuff. Think again.

    It is not about the money...
    Think about the carbon emissions!
    These are the people who only care about their own comfort without looking at the whole picture and sparing a thought for the others.

    Air-con is one of the most ironic thing.
    The environment is hot, so you on the air-con to 'cool' the place... but this is only a localised and temporary measure. The air-con when on releases carbon emissions and even hot air (at the back), so while you are feeling cool in the room, it is actually making the environment more hot... and so, more and more people turn on air-con -> vicious cycle!
    Ironically, people see air-con as the solution to hot environment when it is actually a major cause!

    Well my gallery is dehumidified and it is the worst place for your skin, as it will start to peel.

    The closest brand of dry cabinet sounds like "Australia" is:

    The "Ultralite" Drying Cabinet.

    I am just curious, how can you convert a room into dry room?

    That's easy, just buy one of those big capacity dehumidifier (capable in covering room size area) from Best Denki like those Delonghi Brand ones or switch on your aircon 24/7.

    Put those dehumidifiers libraries use. I know the air in libraries are dry to prolong lifespan of the books
