Hi, congrats on getting a new camera... I am no expert here but if you are shooting often, then there is no need for a dry cabinet. At least in the short term. But as you expand your camera gear, there will be some things you will not use often, so ideally a dry box or cabinet will be nice to have considering the humdity in Singapore.

I do not really go taking photos every single week so i leave my camera in a dry cabinet. :p

Hope it helps! Happy shooting! :)

Cheers,

My colleague has a D70 and had went to clean her lens/camera twice (due to fungi) and she puts them in the camera bag just like yours. Dry cabinet is not as ex as some ppl said. If it is going to save your expensive camera and lenses, it is well worth the money.

I guess if you're really tight at the moment, u can buy Thirsty Hippo first and then put it tgt with the dSLR at an airtight place. This can suffice for temporary purpose

Get a dry cabinet.... you'd love it when you realise it prevented fungus attacks on your expensive camera gear which you have saved up for....

But with just a D60 and its supporting cast of low-cost lenses i don't think its necessary :think:
You can get one once your lens collection increases (in both size and cost)

just my 2 cents :)

Check the settings. You may be in Autofocus S mode (Single servo AF)

This will not allow you to press the shutter UNTIL the in-focus indicator is displayed

Don't keep it in the bag when you're not using it. It's better if you just leave it on the study table. Still, I'd recommend getting a small drycabinet or drybox.

Some people need to wait for fungus to grow before they regret. Let them learn the hard way if they choose to. In SG's humid climate, it's not that hard to get fungus to grow. ;p

Well, depends on how much u wanna risk it... or if you find that it's not costly to get new lenses to replace those damaged by fungus... :bsmilie:

Go read the basics on the Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO first.

Then keep shooting and trying... u can't learn everything off a book, you'd need to have hands on practise
