    Welcome to CS. All brands are equally good. More importantly is what is the size you have in mind. They usually range from a petite 38L to huge 188L.

    Size of cabinets are usually determined by three things:
    (1) How many items you are going to put inside?
    (2) What is your budget? They usually cost from $80 to $500 depending on size.
    (3) Which part of your house you are going to site it? The final location will also determine the size that your cabinet can be accomodated.

    As stated by other forumers: Akarui, Aipo and Digi-Cabi are good bets for your camera.

    i'm using a AIPO 38L. bought from mass sale in this forum. now working without any hassle. some might say price is on the high side, but depends on whether u feel that a digital hygrometer n LCD display with direct power (no need battery replacement) is worth it or not.

    i'm using aipo 88L was attracted by the technology the brand used. but paying a little more compared to digicab or maybe Akarui.

    if you thinking of getting more gears next time, suggest you get a slightly bigger size cabinet to save $ and trouble of upgrading.
