Do filters (such as the cokin filters) need to be stored in dry cabinet as well? My dry cabinet is full currently and due to space constrains, buying a second dry cabinet or a bigger one to replace the current one is not feasible. Just wondering if you guys store filters in dry cabinet? :dunno:

Definitely! Especially for circular polarisers. Since there are 2 pieces of glass for cir pols, fungus may develop in between the glasses. I ALWAYS put them inside the dry cabinet.

Try selling off your smaller dry cabinet to pay for a new one? ;)

I guess as long as it's glass, you gotta store it inside.

Anyway, i just dump my whole bag in. ;p That's why always buy big enough ones, at least 45L.

Hi,
I would recommend storing your filters inside your dry-cabinet. I store both my gel and Cokin filters inside my cabinet to prevent any kind of fungus growing on them. Afterall, they are not cheap as well so I feel putting them inside the dry-cabinet is the safest.

Come to think of it, all photographic accesories aren't cheap. I just chucked all of them inside my cabinet.

Cheers,
-Michelle- :D

If space is not an issue, don;t see why not. But if it is, don;t think its really neccessary. Its glass and if there is not too much mositure in your room, think its okay.
