esier but a bit Exp. way ... go Harvey Norman Camera Counter ....
You are right about getting a dry cabinet, it may looks expensive now, but will far more cost econ and hassle free in long long run.

cost of a few bottle of silica gel, and spending time for "cooking" silica gel every now and maybe plus lens and camera cleaning cost if someone are lazy or forgot to mantain the silica gel.

compare to just buy a dry cabinet, the choice is clear.

For your information: Blue Silica Gel contains Cobalt Chloride for humidity indicator. Cobalt Chloride is known as carcinogen.
