With the exponential increase in gear lying around the room, it made sense to find a worry-free way to store everything. After dabbling with an underwater DSLR housing, I NEED to become more OC when it comes to storage. The housing itself requires diligent maintenance at home.
Which is why I sent Jan Tan from JT Photo a Facebook message asking if she had any of these dry cabinets around. She did — and they’re much cheaper than the ones in ACE Hardware / True Value. I got one of the bigger sizes with four levels so I could store the strobe, housing and macro ports, two DSLRs and much more. It’s a really good investment if you’re meticulous with preventing molds into your lenses. I remember my dad stored several of his old lenses away and didn’t know that moisture had eaten into the cabinet — *poof* he lost some really good ones. Hopefully, not happening to me.
For those interested, here are the many models. I suggest buying something that’s bigger than what you think you need. Get them from Jan. She sells them much cheaper than ACE Hardware.
Question: How do you store your gadgets?
