No need to ask anymore ........... go and get your dry cabinet now!!! :nono:Hi guys,
Just starting to get more serious into photography and am wondering, is it really necessary for a dry cabinet? Can I keep my SLR and lens just in a normal cabinet? Would it really be so harmful for the camera and lens?
Wah.. So fierce~ Yes sir. I guess I shall get one then.No need to ask anymore ........... go and get your dry cabinet now!!! :nono:
If the lens has dust and not affecting image quality, it's up to you to have it cleaned or not. Me, I'll just leave it alone. But fungus is another story.Wah.. So fierce~ Yes sir. I guess I shall get one then.
Hmm.. 1 more newbie question (don't want to start new thread, later like i spam threads),
how often is it needed to maintain the lens? Like cleaning it and stuff.
:bigeyes: Wah, over a year? So have you got a dry cabinet already? Better be safe than sorry. Come to think of it. It's wiser to invest in a dry cabinet which cost a couple of hundreds of dollars rather than let your few thousand dollars gears risk infected with fungus. No more worries since I got mine. :bsmilie:Galdor, i left mine in my camera bag without any silica gel for over a year and fortunately no fungus too.
i think it really depends on where u leave ur cam bag. if its in a room air conditioned 24/7, should be ok, since its pretty dry.Hi Difter,
welcome to ClubSnap.
A dry cabinet is important if you hardly use your camera. I had once left my camera in a bag (w/o silicon gel) and not in a dry cabinet for a couple of months. Luckily got no fungus. I think if you use your camera often enough, then you can do without the dry cabinet. But i still feel that it's safer to get one. Better to be safe than sorry. Once there's fungus on the lens, no matter how clean you managed to clean it, the quality will never be the same. You can get your dry cabinet at Digital Point (Suntec City) or Carrefour. Prices between these 2 shops are about the same and they do provide delivery. :thumbsup:
You guys are scaring me into getting a dry box. =(you sure? I know ST and LHWB photogs use their stuff everyday so they got no chance to go into the dry cab. They got fungus infections in many of them.
You can thinking to use your gear everyday now, but later...??You guys are scaring me into getting a dry box. =(
But I'm thinking; if I take out my gear everyday to use, dry box or not, it's exposed to moisture more than it is in the dry box, haha.
But ok la, just pay small $ to get peace of mind. At least even if got fungus it's not my fault! :thumbsup:
