To ortega, a friend was telling me over the phone to "leave my camera open on the cupboard, near my window (the window near me is locked most of the time). Sunlight penetrate my window and will get near (but not touching) to my equipment. Day in day out, wipe the equipments and you will be fine".
Eh, is it workable?
Well like i said, my room really compact, so I can't get a digicabin. Like kaikibbler had said before, what's the big deal of getting a S$100 cabin since I have already invested this much.... The truth, I will like to get one too.
Drybox, I presume you are referring to something like digihub i-case (http://www.digihub.com.sg/SubCategor...nCategoryID=15).
I saw someone recommend using a rechargable silica gel - i can consider that too.
Imagine spending S$40 on a DIY, wouldn't it better off for me to get a 30L digicabin instead (less hassle too).
Since the idea of Waterproof bag + silica gel NOT EQUAL dry box, then may I ask some of you to recommend me a good thread where I can read more on drybox/digicabin discussion?
LOL!! I think its better to dump everything into the drybox??
Back in the film days when I was a student and no Club Snap, I left my Nikon D70 and 2 lens in the dry box with silicon. After awhile, I forgot to change the silicon I found Fungus in both my lens. The camera body become sticky (The hand grip area to the back of the camera rubbery material has disintegrated) So now I use Dry Cabinate. The digital type, where you can set the RH usually at about 45%
