    Since i don't have much equipment, I store basically everything out from the box excluding the box itself and the cables

    Don't take out lens cap before putting in dry cabinet. This is to prevent accidental scratches to the lens.

    Hi , i just wonder think that there's must be oil inside the zoom lens , but it isn't good if we put the zoom lens inside the dry cabinet for a long time and make the oil became dry , so the side effect will be difficult to perform zooming .

    Absolutely.

    I leave my flash with a set of L91 Lithiums (dry chemistry, so no risk of leakage) for the occasional shot. It saves me having to fish around for a set of charged NiMH's if I need them immediately.
    I'll load them with a set of NiMH's if heading for a planned shoot.

    The same goes for rechargeable batteries for flash. If you use Alkaline batteries for flash then it goes without saying that one should not leave them inside. They tend to leak, especially cheap China brands.

    I don't.
    It's getting a little squeezed in there, and I don't want to risk a scratched or chipped filter/front element.

    Rear cover is always on unless lens is attached to body.

    Can I put my father digital camera together with my dslr and cleaning kit? --> If your dry cabinet is big enough, why not?

    Charger cannot put right? --> Should not be a problem, but i normally don't. If I keep my charger in dry cabinet I might end up forgetting to charge the batteries.

    63% is still a bit high. Singapore humidity is between 66% to 100%

    i keep a whole lot of lenses and most of my bodies inside. my cabinets abit smalll so not everything fits.

    if it get caught or shoot in the rain then the lenses and cam w/o strap go in with all caps/filters/ latches and doors removed/opened.

    also my sisters ipod/ds and what ever else get wet by rain or washed with the laundry =D
