Thread: Digi cabi

  1. #1

    Default Digi cabi

    Hey everybody ! I am buying my dry cabinet and i need to know whether a digi cabi 036 (30l) is enough for my set up . I have the kit lens , 55-200mm and 50mm 1.8 , and a dslr body . So is a 30l enough for all these ? Will there be any spare spaces for future lens ?

    im using a 25l dry cabinet now..

    it holds 2 camera (d3k with 35mm) and (d7k with 50mm) plus 55-200mm a flash and 18-105 and theres still space for 1 or 2 more lens =x

    so i think no problem for your set up with the 30l dry cabi, but if you are getting a 70-200 in future, u might want to get a bigger 1 -x

    btw... ur using a d3k? ^^ OT abit heh heh

    like i mentioned before.. its definitely more than enough spaces. Its the matter of how u want to keep your lens..

    btw the cabinet will come with 2 shelf.. i only install 1.
    so i have lot of spaces at the bottom.. since i wanted to keep my lens (standing at the lower deck) upper deck just the body with a lens.

    if u think its alright.. then go ahead. But dont make noise when it fail on you. ( dont get me wrong.. im not saying a brand new 1 will be flawless.)

    are you planning to get more lens in the long run? If yes may consider getting a bigger dry cabi else the 30L is enough for your current equipments.

    all depends, i like space to move things around without scratching my hands while taking things in and out. I hate having to squeeze, always make room for comfort but thats just me.

    not to worry about scratching your hands nor having to squeeze cause the trays can roll in and out from the cabinet.
