    sorry to nitpick. There's no such thing as a len.
    Singular = lens
    Plural = lenses

    Anyway I think it's still quite worthwhile to get a drybox (cheaper) or a dry cabinet (more ex, but better regulation of humidity). They don't cost A LOT of money.
    For D60 + dual lens kit + flash + filters, a 30L dry cabinet should be sufficient.
    Unless you're planning on buying more lenses in the near or medium-term future, then perhaps get a larger dry cabinet.
    Exploring! :)

    1. Magic Lantern Guides: Nikon D60 (Magic Lantern Guides)
    2. David Busch's Nikon D60 Guide to Digital SLR Photography (Paperback)

    please comments..
    thanks
    I have seen the 2 specific books about D60 at Funan's bookshop. I would spend my $$ on books about how to take good photos compared to a book about how to operate a particular model.

    I find books in library that talk about basic photography is more useful to me as newbie in DSLR and photography.

    (I just bought my first DSLR too. a D60 at comex)

    I would recommend this site for beginners who would want to understand more about their D40, D40X and D60. I find the explanation pretty useful for a newbie like me. Just do what you think it is necessary if you feel the article useful to you .

    am thinking of should get a dry box or not now??

    Just buy one, not so expensive. I bought a portable dry box at Funan. Only cost me S$29. It fits my D60 + Kit Lens + 55-200 + 50mm F1.8. Just put Thirsty Hippo inside, then everything is ok. (For me, at least. )

    Get a hygrometer. You won't know until it's too late for such boxes...

    there is no indicator that the humidity is too high until it's too late...

    did some research about dry cabinet...

    found this on the net...

    Digicabi DB036

    - 30 Litres Digital Dry Cabinet
    - Digital Hygrometer
    - 2 Adjustable Trays
    - 30 x 30 x 43cm (WxDxH)
    - Single Handle Glass Door
    - Power Consumption: 5W

    some useful info

    AD series has a higher inaccuracy percentage up to +6 in humidity measurement. Also AD series needs to have the humidity pre-set before putting in equipment. Eg: Set the dial within the cabinet, let the humidity settle, then adjust again until 45~55 is reached.

    for DHC series, the inaccuracy percentage is less, about +3. Once set a value, the cabinet will start to work towards the humidity level without the need for it to be settled first. You can put in equipment immediately after setting the humidity level.

    pls comment whether this brand is good....if possible,any recommendation for dry cabinet?bugdget SGD100..

    thankss!!

    i would recommend using your kit lens more first before heading off on wild lens buying sprees. its not whether you've heard good feedback on it, but whether it suits your uses.

    but yes, it is good stuff, especially with its price, and i'm planning on getting either that or the tamron 28-75 f2.8.

    It is such a quiet thing to fall,
    But far more terrible is to admit it

    I have the DHC, and there is no problems at all... just set once and you can forget about it.

    But I dun think it does sell below a hundred. Do check with the stores for the pricing.

    Good cheap 2.8 versions of the originals which would cost 2k or more...

    PS : note that there are versions without the AF-S motors on this Tamron. So they would have to be manually focused with the D60.

    cannot. thats why all places that sell dry cabinets are not air conditioned.


    no offense, but sometimes its quite obvious.

    ok the sarcasm must have gone off the scale on the sarcaso-meter.


    dry cabinets control the humidity levels INSIDE the cabinet, it can be the friggin sahara outside and it doesn't matter. (it does la, i exaggerate a bit). So yes, you can put your dry cabi in a room with aircon on 24/7 and it'll be fine.

    haha sorry sometimes my brand of humour doesn't quite work.

    Now u realised...

    One is not enough... you need 2 with the Quantum Turbo 2x2. So that you can have 2 flashes with full power at all times.
