What kind of advice? Regarding dry cabinets? Dry cabinets are less trouble and more convenient in the long run compared to dry box.

buy a dry box: monitoring of humidity once every few days/weeks, changing of gel etc
buy a dry cabinet: monitor for first day, leave your equiptment inside and check the screen once every 2 weeks :)

Yeah. I agree on it. But now my budget is low. No penny left in atm.. :(

Thanks for your advice. Before I buy dry box or dry cabinet, how can I keep my camera and lens?

:)

you can just keep it normally. fungus doesnt start growing until at least a few months of non usage. take it out regularly to use and you should be fine :)

We shoot mostly on saturday early mornings... start shooting at 6am and end around 7:30am.

Even working people like us can find time. I am sure you can too. It is only up to you if you want to work hard at the hobby or not. ;)

Thanks all of your advices...

Now, with my budget I will buy a dry box first and keep my camera and one lens first... after months later, I will buy a dry cabinet...

Today, I saw one dry box at Fair Price Xtra at jurong point.. it is 25 SGD...

Could you explain how its works and how to keep camera and lens in the box?
And also, about the gel...

Thanks A lot... Cheers..
