Condensation What is condensation? I shot in cold damp weather last night. The camera was protected with a Aqua Tech cover, but today I noticed that my view finder has condensation on the inside of the glass. Can I do anything to get rid of the condensation? Thanks, Wayne

Re: condensation

See Condensation Can Cause Problems and how to prevent in the future link.

Yes it may clear with time.,but also can leave a dust ring behind when it does, otherwise it needs to be pulled apart in dustproof conditions and cleaned. looks like they do quotes

Re: condensation

Condensation is the change in matter of a substance to a denser phase, such as a gas (or vapor) to a liquid.[1] Condensation commonly occurs when a vapor is cooled to a liquid, but can also occur if a vapor is compressed (i.e., pressure on it increased) into a liquid, or undergoes a combination of cooling and compression. Liquid which has been condensed from a vapor is called condensate. A device or unit used to condense vapors into liquid is called a condenser. Condensers are used in heat exchangers which have various designs, and come in many sizes ranging from rather small (hand-held) to very large.
The water seen on the outside of a cold glass on a hot day is an example of condensation.

Using my Canon SH Power Shot SX60 SH Camera, Today I to took a view more shots and it just keeps giving me the ERROR Message(memory card error)I have Valuable pic's on this card and now don't open up.

Your card may be full, or else corrupt. Either way, replace it immediately. If it can be read in your computer, copy all the photos to the hard drive. If not, then find a friendly computer-tech who can run image rescue software on it for you.

Camera (power shot A630) will not take picture

Did you have the camera exposed to a damp place for a duration like over night or a cold place and brought it in a warm place where it would fog up the lenses unnoticeably

Held my Pentax Optio S12 vertically when I shot a video

I used DVDVideoSoft Free Studio. It's a free program that rotated my video 90 degrees, and I can now view the video without laying on my side to view it properly ... LOL.

Camera not turning on.

if it was working until you opened it.
It may be worth opening it again to check you didn't dislodge the ribbon cable for the mode switch.
if you could only half open it or had problems getting the diopter control back in (eyepiece focus) there is a screw under the stick on fascia that surrounds the eyepiece lens (not the rubber bit) use a scaple to peel it back...

best of luck

Cant get Best Shot or View to dial up.

If your buttons aren't working properly I would send it in to Casio and have them fix it. I would call them and tell them that your camera needs sent in for repair and see where the closest place is for you to send it. You can call them at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1.

Has my F717 kicked the bucket?

If the LCD is "smeared" in record mode, it isn't the memory stick or any of the other solutions you've been offered. It's one of the following, I would guess: 1) condensation in the camera 2) loose or bad connector to the CCD or power supply 3) Camera is history. Hit eBay and get a new one BTW, It costs about $175 for repair by Sony (at least the last time I had a repair done on a 717). It's probably worth it as long as the rest of the camera is in good shape. Definitely cheaper than buying a new one or a used one. Sorry about your problem...
