    Even if you get all model numbers and all details - it won't guarantee that you just flip on the filter, snap and "WOW!". Reason: you need to do your homework in terms of knowledge and you need to decide about certain camera parameters. The best kitchen ware and fresh veggies won't help if the cook doesn't know how to hold the knife.
    My recommendation: skip all these filters, read up about the very basics of exposure (will keep you busy for some time, trust me), shoot, analyze, shoot better, analyze again, post here for further input. Once you have some basic ideas then it becomes clearer where and how to use filters. Don't be surprised to learn that it also works very well without any filter. It all depends on the light, the time, the moment, the location ...

    Hi all, is it necessary to buy the dry cabinet now? I was thinking that since I only have D90 and the kit lens, a dry box will do. When I start to appreciate photography and buy more lenses and accessories, then I can get a dry cabinet.

    So what is the major advantage of a dry cabinet over the dry box other than the size? If it works pretty much the same, then I will get a dry box first. Since I will be going to US soon, so thinking of putting it inside the dry box and bring to the US for photography.

    Both questions have been answered many many many times .... please do some browsing in the Newbies Corner and General Review, Tech Talk. Nearly every week this question pops up.
    Once you have seen a dry box you might think twice about bringing it to US. Also, keep in mind why people recommend a dry storage here in the tropics and what kind of climate you will have at your place in US. In addition, check the recommended storage conditions for your camera, it's in the manual. Storage here means: not used for some weeks or more. Guess why there is no recommendations for usage conditions (apart from "Don't shoot in rain" etc)?

    You don't need to baby your camera. It's not made of sugar. If you'r taking it outside to shoot, etc, stop worrying about fungus. Just bring your camera and enjoy.
