I place the following into my Dry Cabinet when not in use:

1) Camera Body (without Lithium Battery and CF Card)
2) Lens
3) Filters

Was wondering if there was any reason to put these other equipment in the dry cabinet as well:

1) Flash
2) Battery Grip
3) Camera's Lithium Battery
4) CF Card(s)


Thanks in advance

Cam body, lenses and filters go into the dry cabinet. Even the lens caps and body caps. You can see from my reply it's anything that can introduce mould into the lens or camera body.

As for Batteries, SD, CF cards and flashes, I do not see a need to.

No harm. If there is space, everything can go in.

Everything that is listed goes in. The dry cabinet serves as a central repository for all my equipment, so any photo equipment that fits into the cabinet goes in (except the bag, tripod and other bulky items, of course).

Easier to access and do housekeeping. It's perfectly fine have your batteries and CF cards stored inside the dry cabinet.

Everything goes in except bag and tripod. This way, I don't have to search all ove the place looking for misplaced items.

Like Ah Pao said - "Central Depository"

I store most of my cam equipment INCLUDING the lightsphere in my dry box only when I'm sure I wun be shooting for a period of time (like 2 or 3mths).

Most of the time, it will be in my camera bag.

If your dry cabi is big enough to put in all your stuff go ahead. Normally the important things are Camera body, Lens, filters. Flash and other not necessary.

Yah, if we live in temperate country, no need to spend money on dry cabi at all. My thirsty hippo left in my wardrobe was full of water after 1 month.. :(.

No, no , NO! Don't put your precious cigars into the dry cabinet. Cigars are meant to be stored at 70% RH whereas the dry cabinet drops it down to 40 - 55% RH. You'll dry out your cigars and when you smoke them, they'll burn too fast and heat up too,

It's not a SMOKESCREEN !!!!
