SIC, just bought this 90l Samurai dry cabinet at Gain City, offer at $288 but I asked for more discount, so ended paying $270 for it. It's really a good deal.

You have a point there, I set it at 47. I just thought it's a convenient and safe place to put my watches.
As there is not much info on the internet on storing watches in dry cabinet, I sent Ablogtowatch this question in their "Ask Us Anything", hope it get answered.

Well if they are water proof. They won't dry up since you can't really "suck" out the humidity from there. (I assume air can't move in and out lol)

Anyway I had a watch that fog at the crystal, l left it inside for a week with crown opened, case back opened.

It doesn't help at all.

I think if you set at 47% should be alright. Still within tolerance limit. In fact, it may be good for watches to be kept out of our humid climate, which may cause fogging under crystal.

Maybe can take a look at Panasonic LX100 if budget allows.

How much is that? If it's near $1000 might as well buy a mirroless cam like the Sony A6000 or Olympus EM10.

I suggest that you consider Panasonic or Olympus model that were mentioned earlier. Test for yourself and see the picture colour.

Try out the macro mode for LX100. I love the ease of it take watch and food photo. The sensor is about the same size as the m4/3 cameras like EM10. The downside of using exchange lens, is that if you are intro macro u need to get a specific lens with shorter minimum focusing distance, then might not be that easy to get a wrist shot.

Hi all the bros, thanks for the introductions! Went to courts just now, but didn't get to try the Olympus and Panasonic is not there. Disappointing trip. Will find other places to take a look again.

you should try camera shops than big electronic shops...i prefer MS Color at Ang Mo Kio, the main shop beside food court, not the one inside shopping centre.

they have a very wide range, the people are knowledgeable, friendly and not pushy. i think their discount are also better than big electronic shops. i got the panasonic lx5 3 yrs ago and olympus em10 last yr from there, very satisfied with their service.

Hi bros

Got a reply from Ariel Adams
"Eventually all oil will try up. That humidity seems ok though and isn't too low. I understand in Singapore the humidity is very high so this might be a good idea."

So it's ok, I can continue to put my watches in the dry cabi :mrgreen:

Thought it might be appropriate to post here.
Would like to ask if all you photographers got contacts or recommendations for fashion photographers. Got a project in hand and would like to ask them to come bid for the job.
Much appreciated :)
