    get a cheap dry box loh if you only have 2~3 cameras. For the Dry Cabinet i think is not neccessary it is not cheap, again if you have those expensive lens + high end camera then it is recomended.

    I have 1 x Sony Camcoder, 1 x Olympus, 1 x normal camera, 2 x lens. I store all these stuff in a slighly bigger dry box. Only costed abt S$50 or the smallest below S$40. If course you have to take note of the color of the silicon and need to change from time to time.

    For Dry Cabinet, no need to put any silicon loh as its self contained heater or electronic anti-moisture system. In this case, power souce is required.

    The above statement is my own opinion, if wrong pls correct me!

    the answer to whether you need a electronic dry cabinet or not, depending very much on oneself.

    Do not know what DC or DSLR are you holding, just imagine that you can spent $1000+ worth on a DC, and $100 on a electronic dry cabinet is really not material. Furthermore, the investment on a electronic dry cabinet is to protect your equipments.

    Just my 2 cents opinion.

    It is good to get a dry cabinet if you are the lazy sort like me.

    I used to use dry boxes. Advantage is that they are cheap and don't use electricity. However, you will need to monitor the colour of the silica gel. Also, when the silica gel runs out, you will need to get re-supply. If you buy a big bottle of silica gel make sure you keep it REALLY airtight, else your whole supply will be gone.

    For dry cabinets, I got mine from CarreFour for about 80 bucks on sale. The newer dry cabinets use some sort of electrical drying technology with no moving parts, and no water to dispose. Also, electrical consumption is pretty negligible.

    Whether its dry boxes or dry cabinets, they are essential for any optical equipment. It beats having fungus growing on your lenses and receiving a huge bill for cleaning them!

    Cheers,

    Nowadays I used the dry cabinet to store my equipment. The dry boxes used to store negatives and color slides.

    Hey, your photos are impressive. I have a Canon Powerhot S50, not a real pro camera though. But, do you think I can take magical shots like yours?
