    Default Dry cabinets pricing. opinion?

    Digicabi.

    dimensions capacity price

    W30D30H43cm 36 $118
    W35D32H50cm 50 $168
    W35D32H58cm 60 $188
    W35D32H68cm 70 $208
    W40D38H67cm 80 $248
    W45D38H72cm 100 $308

    from 36-50 W+5 D+2 H+7 = additional $50
    from 36-60 W+5 D+2 H+15 = additional $70
    from 36-70 W+5 D+2 H+24 = additional $90
    from 36-80 W+10 D+8 H+31= additional $130
    from 36-100 W+15 D+8 H+29 = additional $190

    Looks to be the best value for money.
    W35D32H58cm 60 $188
    W35D32H68cm 70 $208

    The remaining larger size is like cheaper to buy another cabinet.

    well...based on my estimates, my 36l's gonna last me for the next 5+ years? So i'd still go for the 36litre one

    I'm using an 80L which still has room for future equipement without having to cram stuff in.

    After doing some searching and reading, I ended up choosing the model that allows you to set the desired RH digitally.

    5 years is an awfully long time with 36l but i am guessing if not enough space simply buy another cabinet?

    Ya, more space so that the dry cabinet not for just puting cameras/lenses only, can help to protect your media like CDs/DVDs etc...

    I agree , buy as BIG as you can afford. Cos you will realize that 36l is not enough in one or two years.

    90L is plenty and you can put in other media like CD's or HDD's

    Just buy the one that can hold all your current gear plus those that are on your must buy list.

    Getting one that is just right or too small IMO will defeat the purpose as you will surely get ichhy then buy something and then you realise dry box too small.

    The marginal difference is not much take the 30L n 50L $50 difference, I take it as a $50 dollar "insurance" for 2 years, so new purchases can be accommodated plus the extra gear.

    If you really didn't buy any new stuff can always put your watch, portable HDD, digicam etc.

    But really,
    I can fit my 17-50mm, 70-200mm, 105mm macro, 10.5mm fisheye,50mm, 2 speedlights, my D90 and my Dad's compact very well now!

    in the distant future, maybe i'll buy a UWA lens and perhaps a powerful telephoto?
    Those will still fit in my 36l (though a tad tight ) Otherwise, I could always store my speedlights elsewhere since they don't really to be stored at 45% RH

    basically both same thing. whichever cheaper as long similar specs.

    Just to ask, would you guys actually want to know the actual merchant to merchant cost of these dry cabinets or dont care since no matter how much, dry cabinet is a eventual necessity?
