You arrive at the location where you plan to shoot. Set up your gear and prepare for your first shot. You look through the view finder and find that you can’t see anything as it and your lens is fogged. It’s aggravating but can also be harmful to your equipment as the condensation can allow fungus to begin to grow. Keep in mind that most warranty’s won’t cover this type of damage as it would be considered water damage.
Fogging can happen anytime of the year but mostly when there are temperature extremes such as being in a cold air conditioned room then moving outside. The camera gear needs to acclimate to its environment, and often this can take up to a half hour.
So, what do we do?
Matt Granger offers a few tips in the video below that can help eliminate this problem.
