Hey guys, I just thought that I'd share this with you all......
Basically I coverd an event yesterday in Manchester and it just so happens that on the day there was Torrential Rain. Now I thought that I was really good because both my two cameras had waterproof protection on them so I did think.
I hardly used my Nikon D90 as I only really use that to shoot stills anyway, but spent most of the time shooting Video on my Sony A1E. Now I did notice that under my waterproof cover of the Sony A1E then that condensation was starting to heavily form. As a matter of fact the condensation got so bad that my Sony A1E camera just would not switch on from effects of the Condensation, so that was the point where I had to stop shooting.
Later on in the day when I got home, I discoverd that my Nikon D90 refused to switch on too.... Then when I tried to switch my Sony A1E back on again it complained to me and told me that it had a "condensation" problem and to leave it for at least an hour. When I went back to the Sony A1E camcorder it was fully working again (but I can still see the damage from the "water marks" in the viewfinders lcd screen.
As for my Nikon D90 then Nikon has asked me to send it back to them for repair........
I'm putting this all down to being part of the course ........ but guys "condensation" is a big massive killer for your cameras.... I'm not sure if there is covers on the market that prevent the condensation from building up in the first place ?
