Question about Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera
Whenever I shoot photos in water, the lens of course gets wet. At least one good water drop remains on the lens, placing a big blur spot on the rest of my pictures. Are there any recommendations to keeping the water spots from forming/remaining.
I keep dunking it in the water, to keep it 'fresh" or flick it. I was thinking rain-x or similar. Or even regular wax to keep the drops from sticking. Of course I can't bring a towel with me in the water to wipe it clean. Thanks for your assistance.
I have had the same problem, and I usually try to dab away the water droplet using a soft cloth (like a t-shirt). Make sure to turn the camera off and on a couple of times as you're doing this, so that the water trapped under the lens cover has a chance to get wiped up.
As for water on the lens when you're still out in the water, and/or without a dry cloth, try lightly blowing on the lens, or lightly shaking the camera, while holding it with the lens side down. Sometimes, even using a wet cloth (like your bathing suit) will get rid of the majority of the water.
Don't put any oil on the camera! It will make your pictures blurry and streaky, and could damage the camera!
