    Hello, just looking for some thoughts and maybe solutions.

    Just returned from south of Cancun Mexico (Riviera Maya) where I used my E-Pl2 for a week. Clearly I had some shots marred by condensation either on the lens or the sensor.

    Does anyone have advice or experience dealing with the constant moving from cold buildings or cold tour bus to a hot and humid tropical environment and then back and forth etc. etc.

    I tried letting the camera warm up but this took a great deal of time.

    I wonder how much trouble this causes if condensation is forming and evaporating from your sensor (off and on for a week).
     
  2. RH & temp

    Potential problem for ~1/2 the year at home (cold outside, warm inside) & on the trips (warm humid outside, cool dry inside). Plastic bag routine. Bit of a pain, but inexpensive precaution.
