I don't know. But being a bit more kiasu, I even leave my batteries inside. Don't want to get worry about fungus or oxidation. Now my cabinet still have space, so why not?!

In my dry cabinet, I have, my camera, charger, camera batteries, glasses, film (exposed), xdriveii, filters. My AAs are left outside on top of the dry cabinet, no space liao :bsmilie:

It's ok to leave the flash inside, since it's consolidated, it's easier to find it when you need it :)

Guess I have to upgrade my dry cabinet or rearrange the stuff inside. It's getting packed. :)

I've read somewhere b4 this question being asked... But that was years back either in this forum or another local photo forum...

Someone commented (a pro I think) that it's not good for the flash to be in the dry cabinet because of the low humidity on the electronics circuitry, which is different from the cameras.

I just barely remember the posting of the article... So don't quote me 100%. But anyone with further info, pls do comment as I would like to know too.

More than this. It reduces 'corrosion' - being lower humidity.

Aiyoh, just because you don't keep it in the fridge doesn't mean other people doesn't. In fact I just came back from holiday to find my FREEZER filled with bread by my housemate's parents... :D
