    You can consider getting a Digi-Cabi. I've got a 40D, 2 lens and 2 x PNS, they all fit nicely with room to spare in my 60L dry box.

    Do also consider if you plan to upgrade your equipment in the near future.

    It's more troublesome to use the silicon and the humidity is not very consistant, hence it would be better to get a dry cabinet. A dry cabinet would cost lesser than your gears so it's worth spending the money to protect your investment. (Depending on size, it will range between $100+ to $200+) You can check them out at Cathay Photo, MS Color or even Carrefour. Usually, we would get a dry cabinet that is of at least 60 litres so that we do not have to worry about space when we want to expand our 'collection' in future.

    yes you need to leave a small gap..

    actually can go carrefour get any digi cabi above the 50L ones and you can have it delivered for free...
    got that and there is slots for like 5 lenses not the super zoom type., at least a 450D with a batt grip and also 2 flash and alll..
    there is still a bit of room to spare...
    dependent on how many lenses you think you will get actually.. else the 50L is just good enough ..
    60L is too big for my preference..

    Depends on which make and model of dry cab you are using. I'm using a Digi Cab 60L, i turn the knob to 10 o'clock position and the reading I'm getting is 45%.
