Yeah i've got it a few mths ago already. Then i just got my 17-40 so after that i bought one.: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:
It will take longer to remove the humidity caused by camera bag. While it is possible, I prefer to use extra space to keep my precious DVD/VCD, negative film, rather than camera bag.
100% yes ! yr camera can never survive in singapore weather.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?
Carrefour.I'm thinking to get a dry box,well since getting a cabinet is quite a hassle for a foreigner like me,considering that someday I'll go back to my home country
Anyone know where to get one?and for how much?
It ain't the camera, it's those damn lenses...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:
So get a dry box with a hygrometer so you can check out the humidity levels!For those who use dry box, how much silica gel should you use? I am concern about too much much silica gel will suck up the lubricant in the cam also thus causing the cam to spoilt faster too.
Thanks for the adviceCarrefour.
If you hang around long enough you might meet a person trying to buy a dry cabinet (they always give out free dry box with dry cabi) and you can try to discuss with him to knock off some $.
Alternatively you can buy here in Clubsnap Marketplace, always got people selling because they also buy dry cabi! :bsmilie: :bsmilie:
If you buy from Carrefour make sure that the silica pack inside is blue instead of pink hor. Mine was totally pink, but I don't use it anyways, just microwaved it for fun in any case.
