    I haven't seen an arrogant or boastful dry cabinet before
    hehehe I suppose you mean a knob to adjust the humidity level.
    Yes there would most likely be one, like you get in the ''budget-friendly" refrigerators for adjusting the temperature.
    As David mentioned, it needn't be an exact science. A few percentage points off isn't going to ruin your gear.
    Exploring! :)

    Okay, i was looking at a Dry cabi that can store 1-2 body, 3-4 lenses. Any brand or size to recommend?? My budget for this is below 300 if possible, if not will top up a bit more.
    How come everyone is recommending a 60 litre, I have 5 lenses and 2 bodies and I can fit it into the smallest Digi-Cabi dry cabinet..

    Many dry cabinet have inaccurate hygrometer, so whether you buy analog or digital meter, still should get a relatively accurate one to confirm. Doing salt test might not always be useful because some of the cheap meters are very accurate at 75%, but have 5-10% deviation at lower humidity.

    I have 6 lens 2 bodies and some filters in a db-036. Very cramp and very difficult to put them all in. Suggest to get biggest your place can accomodate.

    Dunno, I put my two bodies (film without any lens, and digital with Sigma 10-20 mounted) on top shelf...

    Then the rest just put vertical on bottom shelf. Of course I don't have any huge lenses la.. I can understand why someone needs a larger cabinet if he has say, a 70-200mm f/2.8, don't think it can fit in... But double the size for most people, I don't think so...

    infact if you put them vertical at the lower self.. you can store more than 5 lenses in the smallest cabinet. (unless you talking about 70-200 kind) then not quite possible.

    Strike Digicabi. Not possible, the shelf hits the door seal. I think most are similar. Do let us know the brand if you find one.

    My digicabi need alittle more than 90 degree to pull out the tray (prob abt 100 degree?). Sometimes for speed, didn't bother and just take the camera out without pulling the tray
    Too many great equipments but too little quality photos. [My Flickr] | [My Blog]

    with just 30L, i can store 2 lens, one body and 2 compacts.
    due to the temperature within my room, RH is set at 35~40%
    even if i do upgrade, is either 40L or 50L, 60L is just too big for my liking as space is also limited within my room.

    Why 60L is too big?? 30L is enough for you to put things??

    IMO... 30L is more than enough for most users..Especially those who just started out. It is pretty big enough already. Unless you have many 70-200 kind of big lenses and alot DSLR bodies (eg 2-3). Head down to the shop..take a look at the 30L. Then you will get a clearer picture as whether it is big enough for you..
