Hi all,

I have a question....
Last year got myself a temperature and humidity gauge.
After that I had been closely monitor the room temperature and humidity level.

And turn out to be the humidity level is stay around 50%.
If rain will be abt 60% Max.
If sunny day will be at 40% Min.
But if I close the window will stay at 50%.

After got my 1st DSLR anon 450D and wanted to save $$$ to buy a dry cabinet.
but after monitor the humidity level in my room.
since like is still within the specification range of the dry cabinet. (I think.. been reading the forums abt dry cabinet spec and range)

All the long I kept my DSLR in my camera bag well protected inside my cloth drawer.:lovegrin:

So now my question.... Should I buy a dry cabinet or just buy a dry box?:think:
Or may be I save the $$$ and invest into other stuffs for my DSLR....
Since the humidity level is still within the range.:dunno:

i'm sorry, but i had to laugh.. it's humidity..

if you would want to lower your humanity level in the room, you would need to do more drastic stuff like torture little animals, etc

but anyways, if you are going to go into this long term, get a dry cabinet. i doubt your humidity meter is working properly, if you open the window, in singapore, believe me, until you go overseas to less humid places, you will realise that singapore is indeed very humid. i doubt you can get 40% naturally, unless you keep your air conditioner on most of the time, perhaps.

i think very much depends on the location of the gauge if u discount the possibility that it super inaccurate. so unless u are able to store it right next to where the gauge is, i wouldnt suggest leaving in a bag.

That's what I thought too when I saw the title of the thread... :bsmilie:

Yeah, I also think TS' humidity guage is not working properly. The humidity level in Singapore is about 90%. In my room, it usually read 70% when I open the dry cabinet....hmmm maybe my dry cabinet humidity guage is spoilt....:think:

If using air-con to keep the humidity down, it will be cheaper to get a dry cabinet in the long run, due to the energy cost. Unless there are other reasons for switching the air-con 24/7

i had the same thoughts as u, thinking the TS gauge had gone nuts... but look at his location, doubt TS is in SG.

The cloth drawer is one of the worst place in the house to put yr camera bag, its humid inside and it also traps the moisture, u would do better put yr bag outside on the desk, of course the best is to buy a electric dry cabinet.

if it is a not so humid country, then no point.

I also don't use a dry cabinet in UK. even humid, it won't reach the level in Singapore....:bsmilie: I just keep the lenses in separate camera bag. I have got 2 a lowepro belt pack and the lowepro orion AW. I usually just carry my DSLR out with the belt pack, so I leave the rest of my lenses in the Orion AW.

You should have said where you stayed earlier. Since you are staying in Tokyo and the humidity is correct, then there is no need for a dry cabinet. You probably need some place to put your lenses and stuff, so that they don't accidentally fall off the table or shelf. ;)
