#1: you can place a dry cabinet in any condition.. the dry cabinet is supposed to keep its interior consistently dry..

#2: no you can't.. hahaha.. joking.. of course you can shoot in air con rooms..

#3: just note the misting / fogging on the surface of lenses (esp when the difference in temperature is very large and causes condensation on the surface of the lens)

will the misting cause any damage to the lens or any part of the camera?

wipe it off with lens cloth.. or cover the lens with lens cover.. dun think it'll cause anything.. spectacles without anti-fogging experience that all the time..

One way to avoid misting is to put the equipment in a sealed plastic and allow it to reach the ambient temperature before taking it out of the bag. Since the cameras aren't airtight bodies the condensation will happen both inside the camera as well as outside. Have a look at the last section in this article: http://www.ritzcamera.com/static/articles/tips/winter-photo.html

Do keep in mind that the article refers to taking the camera from subzero to "normal" temperature where condensation can be severe, a few degrees temperature change would not be so bad.

in fact an air conditioned room (cold) is actually a good place to keep camera/lenses
as the humidity is low (dry cold air)

err..... too dry body might crack??

Dun think your aircon is that power.

Anyway, if you using seal tight bag, the humidity will be seal in too. It sealed the environmental humidity. Unless you seal it in a aircon, humidity controlled environment, if not no need. A dry box should be enough.
