Condensation usually occurs from the camera being taken from a dry, cool, place to a warm, humid place, or visa versa, in a short period of time (example: from a hotel room with A/C to the outside on a warm humid day).

Try putting the camera in a plastic bag when you know you're going to take it between two locations like that, as the air in the plastic bag will slowly adjust to the new temperature, reducing condensation

I have heavy condensation daily inside on my windows in the morning. What causes this? How can I fix it?


It is caused by water vapour in humid warmer air inside the vehicle condensing on the very cold windscreen. As long as the interior glass surface is much colder than the inside air it contacts you will get condensation forming on the inside surface.

2. If you equalise the temperature of the air inside the vehicle with the outside temp for 5 minutes before locking up your car you will minimise condensation, as will garaging it. If you drive around with the heater on full on a freezing cold day, stop the car and lock it up exposed, you are going to get condensation, especially if you have used the recirc control to block the outside air from entering the climate control system in the cabin while driving.

3. If you are having this condensation issue set the air controls on the car (before you turn it off and park it) so that outside air can flow in through the cabin venting system. When you drive around constantly with just interior air circulation and no outside air entering you are going to get a build up of humidity.

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.

AEG micro-combi oven has big condensation problems. The glass on the oven door clouds over and drips of water can be seen on the glass. Water also drips out on both sides of the oven at times formin


Condensation inside the oven comes mainly when the temperature is below 100 Celsius, and this phenomenon is evident in almost all manufacturers. That means, the condensation starts at the beginning and at end of baking. My advice is the same as many manufacturers recommend: Before baking, preheat the oven to min. 100 Celsius and after that place the food in the oven. Reverse the procedure in the "cool down" phase before the temperature drops below 100 ° C and remove the food from the oven.
After that condensation should be drastically reduced.
Condensation could be technically solved but it would be too expensive for manufacturers (more parts inside oven) as well as for customers also (too expensive appliance and lost energy).

PS. This applies to the traditional way of baking

if you have condensation on the inside of the glass your camera has been shorted out maybe letting it dry out for a few days would work but you can also try a local camera shop and see if they can help.

It certainly could be condensation. When it dried, it could have left a mark on the panel. As long as your pics turn out well, don't worry about it. If you try to take the panel off to clean it and you don't know what you're doing, you could cause major problems. However, if you're determined to do so, there are plenty of sites on Google that can show you the procedure in pictures.

I have an unseen leak soaking front passenger floor. When I took up the carpet the insulation under it was completely saturated.


Either your heater core is leaking, is the fluid sweet smelling and slimy? Or the condensation drain from your air conditioner is plugged causing the condensation to drain inside as opposed to outside. Or the glass seal is bad and rain water is coming inside from around the windshield. Heater core is going to need a repair guy, condensation drain can usually be fixed in about 5 minutes at any shop with a lift, glass leak you are going to need an auto glass shop's help.

Condensation marks on microwave door


For most microwaves the process is pretty straightforward. You can open the door and you will see the screws that hold the outerinside panel on to the glass. After you remove those screws you will see the screws that hold the ouside cover to the door in place. Once you get that far you will see what is holding the glass in place. Keep in mind to replace the gaskets around the glass right and anything you take off to get to the glass itself. If you are getting condensation from range top cooking then the seal around the glass may need to be replaced. You really cannot hurt anything by taking it apart, but it needs to be put back together exactly the way you take it apart. Good luck and hope this helped.

Condensation


When pouring a chilled beverage into a glass, water droplets may form on the surface of the glass. This happens because the air around the glass is rapidly cooled down, and moisture in the air adheres to the surface of the glass. This phenomenon is called condensation. This kind of condensation may also occur with camcorders. If you continue to use the camcorder with condensation on it, it could damage the camcorder. Condensation may form on the camcorder in the following cases: (1) When being moved from a cold place to a warm place (2) When being used in a rapidly-heated cold room (3) When being used in a humid room (4) When being moved from an air-conditioned room to a warm, humid place When condensation occurs: The camcorder stops operating automatically after its power lamp flashes. The warning message "CONDENSATION HAS BEEN DETECTED" appears and the condensation-warning icon below starts flashing. Condensation-warning icon If a cassette is loaded, the warning message "CONDENSATION HAS BEEN DETECTED" and "REMOVE THE CASSETTE" appear and the cassette-warning icon starts flashing. Cassette-warning icon If a cassette is loaded in the camcorder, remove the cassette immediately and leave the cassette compartment open. If condensation is detected, the POWER switch and cassette-removing switch will be activated. Leaving the cassette in the camcorder may damage the tape. A cassette should not be loaded into the camcorder when condensation is detected. How to avoid condensation Unload the cassette and place the camcorder in an airtight plastic bag when moving to locations where temperatures vary. Allow time for the camcorder to adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the bag. Resuming use Allow at least one hour before resuming use; more time may be required for heavier condensation. When condensation has been eliminated, turn the camcorder on. After the condensation-warning icon stops flashing, wait one hour before resuming use.
