    Yes it does come with a manual, its really easy for me to set, just need to wait for the humidity to drop and that its. The manual tells you where to turn the knob.

    I am using a food container for air isolation, plus a drier, as the dry carbinet for keeping my DSLR... Got both from NTUC. Cost me less than 30 bucks. Not sure how well it works though.

    Yeah... It has a volume of 11L if I remember correctly. It accommodates my D90 with kit lens, a drier. It still has room for a few more lenses.

    Well, if you want to use a food container or any air tight box for that matter, you have to keep a constant lookout for the humidity level inside.

    You have to get a hygrometer (can buy from home-fix) and place it inside the box. The recommended level is 40-55%. Too dry and the rubber parts might break apart, too moist and the box serve no purpose.

    By the time you get this and that,it will almost add up to $100 where you can get a dry cabinet...

    My suggestion,go to Fairprice Extra(AMK or Jurong Point) or MS Colour and get a dry box.It will cost about $23-25 and has a built in hygrometer and silica gel pack.The silica gel pack can be recharged by popping it into a microwave oven and should last you for a few years

    Don't bother with dehumidifier(aka Thirsty Hippo) as they will make your dry box even drier than it's supposed to be...
