    3) I don't have a dry cabinet yet, so how do i actually store my D90 now?
    4) What basic accessories do i actually need?

    I think that's all for now?
    (I own a D90 with kit lens 18-105mm) =)

    I have expensive camera and big lenses but don't know how to use..... Sound familar???

    Do not worry too much. As time goes by, you wun care too much. A filter will do you good for covering the lense. Now, I can't bother anyway.

    Also, use the blower to blow off the dirt before using the cloth. For changing of lens on beach, turn ur body against the wind and change. If you do not have 2nd lens, try to use the blower instead of using the cloth. If not, bring home and do the clean up. use Ps to clean the spot dot appear on the image.

    I guess that's what you get when you ask a common question

    yes, better not change lens while at the beach
    keep in the bag while not using (at the beach)

    A drybox is recommended if you seldom use your camera
    LOL bro. I am pretty much noti by nature. LOL

    Also to add on, the finer the sand, the more careful you want to be.

    Yes Bro !
    Why polarizing filter? How about ND filters? Not to mentioned all the special filters available....

    End of the day, buy only when you know you need, not when you think you want. Filters ain't cheap, you know?

    Hmm.. because i'll be heading to taiwan soon.. so i suppose they'll come in handy?
    Yeah, they're freaking ex. I'm still torn between a normal VS better quality uv filter.
