    wow, kind of heavy load. but one thing i scare is carry too much things scare will get damage, like knocking here and there. (:

    bro, out of curiosity, during indoor shoots (assuming hotel room or hdb living room size), which lens do you normally mount on? I noticed you have UWA and 28-75 been eyeing on the 28-75 for some time...

    That's what a camera bag is for...it MUST have padding to prevent the knocking from damaging ur equipment

    According to Canon website: Standard package will have SD 8GB card, EOS bag and EOS 550D user guide
    But confirm got 1 x original batt inside.

    Software -> Canon EOS Software which contains the DPP IIRC
    Lens Cap comes with the lens...

    Not too sure abt the rest of the accessories.

    then you are looking at the drybox solution. This is not recommended however as you'll need silica gel. And being Singapore, it's very humid. You will be changing silica gel every few days, based on the feedback by fellow CSer's.
    if space is a constraint, get the smallest dry cabinet for storage. As for electricity bill wise, someone did a calculation and the total elect bill is only a few dollars a year if memory serves me right.

    Don't bother saving on dry cabinet. Set aside some budget for one right from the start. As most will say, already spent so much on camera, why not spend another hundred to protect and prolong lifespan

    any brand of dry cabinet will do? or is there any specific brand to recommend? my budget hopefully less than $100. (:

    Dry cabinet, look at the B&S section. Almost every week you can see those who kena poison and have to upgrade dry cabi selling their smaller ones there.

    3rd Party batt, efficiency wise, give or take after 1yr of usage, ~50-60% max efficiency of original batt

    You might want to check out Cathay Photo for their range of dry cabinet, cheaper one can be found in Carrefour (didn't use those from Carrefour before so cannot advice), the one from Cathay Photo are really good. As to after market battery you can check out both Sgcamerastore (sgcamerastore.com) or artworkfoto (artworkfoto.com)
