Hi guys,

I've been thinking this for awhile, but I still can't decide.
The question is, should I get a Digi Dry Cabi or Dry Box?
If possible, give me advises and the pros and cons.


Thanks a million in advance!! :lovegrin:

Hi,

I'm currently using Dry Cabi. Great. All my camera and lens in great condition. The difference i believe is Dry Cabi need power supply and Dry Box doesn't need anything i believe. Hope my small information can help u . Thanks. :embrass:

I personally feel that you should get Dry Cabi instead. Dry box need monitor closly, if you are those lazy type better don't get this. :p
if you are getting the dry cabi, you must know your long term plan, are you going to get few more lens down the road? or you are just happy with what you have now. get atleast AD 50 (50L) type best AD60 (60L). Unless you got more lenes you can get higher range.

Just my 2 cents, final decession is yours you know what you want.

i just wanna hijack this thread. thanks

many people suggested to get 50L or more but i was at carrefour and the 30L one seems fine.
Is the 30L one able to store 1 D80+lens body and 2-3 other lens?
I am not planning to get a 2nd body.

thanks for all your replys.

30L is the ~$99 one? Yes it can, as long your lenses are not the bazooka type.

1.) dry box, low budget, requires attention once every 2-3 weeks or more often if you like to open up the box in non aircon environment.
2.) dry cab, use money to solve the lazy bum syndrome.

It's like to take bus or to buy a car
I went with option 1 when I was a student and continued while working until I came across a cheap deal for dri-cab in B&S and I grabbed one.
Then again.. students are kinda rich these days.. so.. :dunno:

some students use better stuffs than most people...

anyway, just go for dry cab, if camera and lens kena fungus, will definitely cost more than one dry cab, and also it is more economy and convenient in long run.

To save yourself of all the trouble of regularly checking and maintaining the dry box to be as efficient as a Dry Cab, just get the Dry Cab.

I got mine at the last comex show for $89. Its from Digi-Cab model AD-030. A 30L dry cab with analog RH gauge. This serves my purpose well as i do not have a lot of equipment. Only equipment that are prone to fungus attack stays in the cabinet. The rest of the equipment are kept outside.

If you can't afford one now, save up for it. It is worth the investment.
