Skip the box just get the dry cabinet. Saves you the trouble of having to check the humidity level and change gel especially if you use the camera frequently. And you can take your time to take out/put back your equipment without worrying about the humidity getting into the cabinet since the cabinet will take care of the humidity level by itself.
Thank you guys for putting up more and more info and knowledge here on this thread. I shall NOT close this thread and allow more people to view and learn and at the same time people, please put up more stuff here to share around.
Its not about how good your equpiment is, its how good the person behind it is.
For me the things to buy after purchasing ur 1st dSLR are:
1) camera bag
2) dry cabinet/box
5) photo editng software
6) at least 1TB of external hhd/ a few dvdr discs (to save all the pictures u took)
Nikon D90 + AF-S Nikkor 18-105mm3.5-5.6 VR
as for the dry cabinet, is it better to get the digital one? so that i do not have to change the settings here and there. in another words, i just have to set the humidity level and thats it, i can just leave it there.
and one more thing, do u guys get your dry cabinet from stores like carrefour, major camera shops or from the mass sales? like ***********?
Some shops provide home delivery, which can be a blessing if you take public transport. You can ask around. My friend bought from carrefour, he added in some other groceries stuff to meet the amount for home delivery.
