I had the same thing happen to me. I opened all the doors,put my camera in a bag with a bunch of those silica gel dessicant packets and sealed the bag.
It has been fine since.
It was most likely the transition from cold A/C to the hot humid outdoors.

Pictures come out fogged up, inside lens problem.


If it is just water vapour, perhaps you can get it out by putting it in a bag of rice for a few days.
Hut if there is mould in the lens, your camera has had its best days. In that case, look out for a new camera.

Water in Veho screen - waterproof case leaked


I would pop to your local hard ware store and buy some absorbant granuals, the type they use to stop condensation building up on windows in your home then, if you can open up the unit and bury it in the granuals for a day or two. Best left in an airing cupboard, somewhere warm but not too hot

Mistake #1. Letting a "friend" use your camera. Mistake #2. Believing a manufacturer when they tell you the camera is waterproof. The only real waterproof camera is one encased in a plastic waterproof case.

My Olympus 1050 SW looks like it might have a little water inside the camera. The lens is foggy. I didn't take it very deep the last time I was in the water with it, but I did store it in a cooler and...


You can TRY and dry out the camera, but I can pretty much guarantee you that there is corrosion inside and it will eventually fail if it hasn't done so already. The Olympus Stylus Tough cameras are not very tough or waterproof unfortunately. I have seen dozens of them with smashed LCD windows or that have leaked water.

Don't buy a waterproof camera, cause they aren't waterproof. Buy an underwater case and put your camera in that.

To try and dry out the camera, some people suggest putting it in a ziplock back with rice to pull out the moisture, it's not a bad thing to try. The fog in the lens MIGHT go away, but it will most likely leave spots or a big ring which will show up on all your pictures.

Your camera is most likely a goner, sorry to say.

Hello, Just got back from Hawaii and took my Lumix Ts2 camera snorkeling every day. The first few days I had no problems, but the last half of my vacation, condensation covered the lens, and my pictures...


Sorry for the loss of the memorable moments. First the issue of the unit being reconditioned can be quite tricky as you really cant tell how capable the person who would handle your unit is. Warranty cover could be an advantage as you wont have to pay for the repair but still doesnt change the idea of the unit being reconditioned. If i were to be in your shoes i would do one of two things:
first, will be to leave the unit for a couple of days and see if the issue still repeats itself as since the unit is sealed the same way the moisture got it it will come out. but if it does then option two will be to take the unit back and trade it is for another camera since your warranty still exists this should be easy to arrange.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Waterproof camera seems to not be working since the pool.


The camera is supposed to be waterproof to 10 feet for about an hour if the camera has never been subjected to any bumps or rough treatment. Can you say you followed those guidelines?

The camera image is blurry


  • FIRST you need to put your camera in a bag 
  • SECOND you need to poke a hole in the bag were the lense is
  • THIRD put the lense part in running water
  • FOURTH the bag is to protect if it is not waterproof
  • FIFTH run in water for about 5 to 10 minutes
  • SIXTH then when its done let dry for 25 seconds
  • SEVENTH get a soft cloth or sponge and dab the lense (blot)
  • EIGHTH you want to take it out of the bag and test to see if it made it better 
  • LAST if it didnt work im sorry but it worked for me!

Lens Fogging Issue


Apparently this is NOT a waterproof rifle scope. I would return it as you will have this same problem only worse out in the field. Buy a waterproof nitrogen filled rifle scope.
