hi , i live in very humid conditions 40 degrees Celsius (40°C × 9/5) + 32 = 104°F. while we in the car aircon is on . then i get out to take a photo and lens mists up badly. how do i stop that
Thanks for your question and the sample photo of mist forming on your lens. It's a common problem for warm moist air to condense when it comes in contact with a colder object.
It's an issue that I run into occasionally when I shoot sports teams early in the morning when there is a lot of moisture in the air. You can also get a misty lens when you live in a cold climate and have a long photo shoot outdoors, or leave your camera gear in the car overnight and bringing it indoors. Bringing your camera unprotected into the warmer environment of a heated building will also cause mosture to form on your lens and camera.
Either way it's a situation you want to avoid, because you could have moisture forming on the inside of your camera and inside your lens. That could be damaging for both.
