Hi everyone,

I'm about to be posted to Melbourne for a year. Besides shipping my dry-box over there vs. buying one when I've settled down there, is there any other way of keeping my DSLR and lens when I'm in a city like Melbourne (taking into consideration it's environmental factors)? Silica Gel? Hungry Hippo? Or I should really get a dry-box over there?

Thanks!

If you take each piece of equipment and use it for a bit every other day, you could just leave it lying around in the open and it would be fine (if you're worried about fungus).

Humidity in OZ is quite a bit lower versus Singapore. Probably just some silica gel in your camera bag should be fine.

Why not get a cheap 2nd hand Dry Cabinate while you are at Oz.... then resell it once you come back. Surely they also have similar Website like ClupSNAP with a big Buy/Sell section.... :thumbsup:

is there a relocation package offered by your company? Normally the company will provide air freight/sea freight assistance when they relocate staff to another location.
