On moisture condensation
If the camera is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, moisture may condense inside or outside the camera. This moisture condensation may cause a malfunction of the camera.
If moisture condensation occurs
Turn off the camera and wait about 1 hour for the moisture to evaporate.
Note on moisture condensation
Moisture may condense when you bring the camera from a cold place into a warm place (or vice versa) or when you use the camera in a humid place as shown below.
- When you bring the camera from a ski slope into a warm place.
- When you bring the camera from an air conditioned car or room into a hot place outside.
- When you use the camera after a squall or a shower.
- When you use the camera in a hot and humid place.
How to avoid moisture condensation
When you bring the camera from a cold place into a warm place, put the camera in a plastic bag and seal it tightly. Remove the bag when the air temperature inside the plastic bag has reached the ambient temperature (after about 1 hour).
