    Default Where to get dry box

    Hi,

    I am new to SLR.

    I am aware that I need to buy a dry box to keep my camera and lens to prevent fungus.

    Is that true?

    If it is, can anyone recommend me where to get one and the cost of it?

    Thanks!

    I would recommend an electronic dry cabi 30L for 115 at Orient Photo at Sim Lim. You can go check other places too and maybe now cheaper already.

    Take good care of your expensive equipments. Better to be safe than sorry.

    do check around. i bought dry cabi 30L for 105 or 108 at the shop at shawtowers (cant remember the name). price does't include delivery.

    there are places where price include delivery. i think john3:16 includes delivery. dunno their price though

    also dry box you need to stock silicon gel also, i think

    hmmm. dry cabi might be too big. but dry box, u must very hardworking n have time to check n change the gel. haha.

    maybe u would want to use ur camera every now n then for like 1 mth or so. in the process, save up for dry cabi. then enuf already, buy one.

    then can relaxxx.. haha. (; that's my opinion though

    It is still good to have a dry cabinet or dry box even though you use it often.

    Fungus is mainly a problem in tropical climate. So unless you are going to store your gear in a hot, humid & dark room while in Europe, you won't have a problem. I assume you will be out and about taking lots of photos, right?

    Sorry I not not familiar with dry box availability & pricing as I only use dry cabinet.

    I assume you will be back in Singapore after the germany trip? If yes, I suggest you just buy a dry cabinet such as the Digi-Cabi. Get the DHC version. Cost a bit more but much easier to set the humidity level and I believe it maintains the humidity setting more accurately than the analog version. And don't make the mistake of thinking it is too big (unless you really have no space for it). I initially bought the 40 litre one and ended buying another larger one. This was exactly what the salesman had predicted.

    I bought mine directly from digi cabi. They have most of their models & sizes on display so you can check them out first. The owner is a real friendly guy and they deliver free of charge.
