    With great collections of large format equipment comes great disarray. And borderline mental illness...

    Clear plastic storage boxes in a range of sizes works for me.
    I group equipment by format and type: slr, dslr, medium format, 4x5, tripod stuff, flashes, filters, other random junk.

    I try not to use my darkroom to store excess equipment. I definitely have way too much stuff. 2nd utility room is full of darkroom stuff. I run dehumidifier and AC. Dehumidifier is in darkroom, it gets a workout during processing runs.
    All my camera stuff is stored in air conditioned spare rooms.
    I don't mind the heat and humidity, but I won't make my equipment suffer.

    I guess I don't have enough LF stuff. I keep all my camera gear, both large and small format, in a dresser from a child's (now grown up and moved out) former bedroom.

    One of us must be doing something Brad,
    My 8x10 gear won't all fit in a childs dresser, and I just started shooting 8x10 not even a month ago.

    I have chrome wire shelving, 24x72 with three shelves and a slab of butcher block on top. Equipment is mostly in cooler bags, ready to go. 8x10 lenses are in plastic Tupperware-ish containers stacked in bags. Film holders are loaded and in cooler bags. 4x5 Wista is in a full kit in its white Zone VI bag. Extra 35mm lenses and miscellaneous junk is in a big plastic bin with no lid. Everything is ready to go at a moment's notice, insulated from big temperature changes.

    That said, if my house has major temperature changes, I think I have bigger problems than whether my camera equipment is comfy.
