    I got one from digi-cab and its totally digital. Its the DHC series. Its as simple as abc. Only 3 buttons there, Set, up and down arrow. Pricey though. I got the 60L DHC60 for $258 and they deliver it to my home with no additonal charges.

    Disclaimer: i am in no way affiliated with digicab or what ever it is. Just stating my experience and my purchase.
    Your pictures speaks for you, not your camera.

    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...
    So u mean the Dry box Consist of a hygrometer and silica gel pack inside costing around $23 to 25 ?

    Its always recommended that you get a dry cab but if you're on a budget you can get a dry box 1st then upgrade to a dry cab when you have the $$$.Your gears can definitely fit into a dry box...

    Dear friend my advice is to get a Dry Cabinet or AT LEAST a proper dry box. ur set up may be cheap, but certainly is not advisable, firstly u cannot regulate the humidity in the container, recommened is 40-50% n i'm sure ur set up will be too dry for ur gears, next the risk of spillage, the humidifiers u r using will turn to a sticky liquid, n if any accidental topple, ur gears ... also in the long run ur cost will add up as u need to buy replacement humidifers.

    I'm currently using heng suey digi cabi...

    still ok i guess... well truth to be told... i buy it like an insurance for my cameras and other electronic equipment as singapore is way too humid...

    in terms of setting the humid level, best is between 45 - 54..
    the brighter the light bulb on the digi cabi, the lower the humid level... the dimmer the light the higher the humid level..

    you can always ask the shop keeper to help you set.. when you reach home just adjust it accordingly..
