    Hi kiddzz & Snoweagle,

    just like to check if there are any online links/ reviews on DB036? [Am interested to get 1 for my 450D before any fungus comes along...) Was wondering if it's very bulky & heavy? [Any dimension, weight etc? No transport, so most probably will lug it along & squeeze with others on MRT, buses etc...]

    Lastly, what is the address/ contact of Parisilk? Thanks in advance for all responses...

    Guys, get this right, it's silica gel, not silicon or silicon gel. They are different things. Read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silica_gel

    If u won't expand so soon, the 30L is enough for your current setup.

    When i took the DB036 back, can be quite hard to carry after a while and during that time was peak hour traffic. So i just took a cab back.

    It is quite cumbersome. Consider purchasing it on off peak period, or if you have your own car, then it's not really an issue.

    Akarui or Digihub are the most recommended. both comes with 5 years warranty

    and frankly I think you need to start using the search function, this thread seems to surface almost every other week or so. whilst the other users might have been generous enough to provide you with detailed information, kindly try to source the info yourselves first

    in singapore's humid weather, it's really a fungus breeding climate. why waste money on getting your lenses cleaned when a 5W dry cab only consumes only abt 20c SGD per month on electricity bills

    Google for "Digihub". Dimensions should be on their website.

    air tight box + silicon power is cheapest but can't control the RH in a way good for the equipment.

    Size depends on capacity. More popular brands are DigiCabi, Akarui and Am-Pro.

    Not very cost-saving over time.

    Just a point to note.

    Akarui and DigiCabi out there in shops are normally Analogue ones, though Digicabi has a digital hygrometer which needs additional AAA battery to operate.

    Analogue means you have to more or less "fine tune" the settings manually till it stabilise at the desired level (ie. 45-50%RH). This fine tune process might take 1 or more days to accomplish and depending on how many/what items are inside the cabinet.

    I got myself a Aipo Dry Cabinet sometime back. It's fully digital and has digital hygrometer which uses electricity from the main ac outlet, so no battery to worry of.

    Since it's fully digital, i just need to set it at 45%RH on day one and I just forget about it since, even when different things are stored in it later on. The digital control will turn itself on when the level hits above 45% and will turn off when it stabilise at 45%.

    Quite idiot proof and easy usage.

    I am not trying to promote this product as I do not sell them, but find it quite good although it's slightly more expensive than Akarui and Digicabi.

    More info at www.zhaipo.com

    BTW, Digicabi also has full digital model. Can see more at www.digihub.com.sg
