Hi guys, just got my Dslr, needed a dry box, may I know where to get this basic dry box or other boxes that is similar? I know it is sold in NTUC or something?

Thanks

Hi siaoguitar,

I think i did saw it selling in NTUC before. Btw, you might wanna consider getting a dry cabinet right from the start, without incurring extra cost of getting this dry box which can be almost 20% of a 30L cabinet.

Do a search in this forum and you should get tonnes of opinions which might help to answer your doubts with regards to dry cabinet. Cheers!


P.S. your link has error. Should be this: http://www.digihub.com.sg/SubCategoryList.aspx?MainCategoryID=15

MS colour at AMK is selling at $23.

Hi cumzball,

As a fellow starter, i would advise you to get a dry cabinet straight. Not sure if budget or space is your concern, but eventually you will need one. So why not invest the $30+ (since you intend to find something bigger) straight into a dry cabinet. Just my 5 cents.

lame excuses. can afford to buy a DSLR but cannot buy a 100 odd dry cabinet.

and the dry box is only half if not 3/4 the size of the dry cabinet. speak as if its a refrigerator size.
:rolleyes:

look long term dude.

u spent $30+ or less to buy a dry box then to chuck it aside (even sell also wun fetch you much), then u end up spending $100+ (cost of dry cabinet) + $30+ (cost of dry box)

do your sums.

Agree with the recommendation to buy a dry cabi. It is a lot easier as no need to worry about replacing gel, etc. Once the cabi setting is stabilised just leave it to run. :)

This morning it was about 48%, then I opened the box to put my camera in for the 1st time, it jumped up to 60% !! So I kiasu, opened a new NTUC bought non-"thirsty hippo" brand one to put in to supplement the drying, before I left the house it went down to 52% and still going down.

Will update when I get home this evening.

I bought my camera 1.5 months ago. Also using the dry box with NTUC brand dehumidifier because I read some post saying the blue silica gel is not healthy. I opened only 1/3 of the cover. Still on my first box of dehumidifier. Humidity is always within 45-55%.
