Camera fogging

Ok for you experts (now that applies to everyone compared to me ). I have been going out to take shots for the local news paper. I have run into a real problem. The inside of my house is about 70 to 72 degrees F. The outside is about 80 at night and 102 during the day with high humidities. My camera lens fog and it takes some time to warm up enough to stop fogging and I am sure it can not be good on other parts of the camera frame. Leaving it in the car is not an option. So is there any other options you folks use. Thanks

Re: Camera fogging

I've had a similar problem visiting Butterfly Farms in the UK, and have experimented with wrapping the camera in a plastic bag, until the camera's acclimatised. This doesn't get around the problem of having to wait but it does ensure that the moisture forms on the bag rather than the camera.

cheers

Re: Camera fogging

Hi cpd, I had this trouble with my nikon 7900 and Canon 350D when on a cruise ship in the caribbean. The cabin was air conditioned and hence as soon as we hit the 90 degrees and 80% humidity outside the lenses and about everything else in the cameras misted and didn't clear for about and hour or so Also "fogged" pictures were produced long after the visible condensation had cleared externally.

For what its worth I got around this problem and used my wifes hair dryer with its diffuser attached and set to the low heat setting and warmed the cameras up before placing them in their cases prior to leaving the cabin and going outside .It worked a treat.
Regards Brian

Re: Camera fogging

Another vote for the sealed plastic bag - used when I was doing the reverse: going from very cold to warm.
