I got one from digi-cab and its totally digital. Its the DHC series. Its as simple as abc. Only 3 buttons there, Set, up and down arrow. Pricey though. I got the 60L DHC60 for $258 and they deliver it to my home with no additonal charges.

Disclaimer: i am in no way affiliated with digicab or what ever it is. Just stating my experience and my purchase.:)

By the time you get this and that,it will almost add up to $100 where you can get a dry cabinet...

My suggestion,go to Fairprice Extra(AMK or Jurong Point) or MS Colour and get a dry box.It will cost about $23-25 and has a built in hygrometer and silica gel pack.The silica gel pack can be recharged by popping it into a microwave oven and should last you for a few years:)

Don't bother with dehumidifier(aka Thirsty Hippo) as they will make your dry box even drier than it's supposed to be...
So u mean the Dry box Consist of a hygrometer and silica gel pack inside costing around $23 to 25 ?

Ic Hmm for a beginner like me using dry box is more then enough rite ?? don need to buy a Dry Cabi ?? I only have 2 lens and 1 Camera
Its always recommended that you get a dry cab but if you're on a budget you can get a dry box 1st then upgrade to a dry cab when you have the $$$.Your gears can definitely fit into a dry box...

Yeah... It has a volume of 11L if I remember correctly. It accommodates my D90 with kit lens, a drier. It still has room for a few more lenses.;)
How do you do that?
Well, if you want to use a food container or any air tight box for that matter, you have to keep a constant lookout for the humidity level inside.

Dear friend my advice is to get a Dry Cabinet or AT LEAST a proper dry box. ur set up may be cheap, but certainly is not advisable, firstly u cannot regulate the humidity in the container, recommened is 40-50% n i'm sure ur set up will be too dry for ur gears, next the risk of spillage, the humidifiers u r using will turn to a sticky liquid, n if any accidental topple, ur gears :sweat:... also in the long run ur cost will add up as u need to buy replacement humidifers.

I'm currently using heng suey digi cabi...

still ok i guess... well truth to be told... i buy it like an insurance for my cameras and other electronic equipment as singapore is way too humid...

in terms of setting the humid level, best is between 45 - 54..
the brighter the light bulb on the digi cabi, the lower the humid level... the dimmer the light the higher the humid level..

you can always ask the shop keeper to help you set.. when you reach home just adjust it accordingly..

Mine was initially $128, but he immediately gave discount to $118. Hahaha.
