Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

High humidity problem

I have owned the EX-Z55 for 2 years now. On a recent trip to Cancun, Mexico the lens/LCD screen completely fogged over. I could still view pictures taken previously and take pictures of "white fog" so everything else was working. I assumed the high humidity had gotten to it. I took out the battery and memory card and left it for a few days to see if it would "dry out." Every day I put it back together but still the same problem. On the third day, it was back to normal for about 10 seconds (I could see through the LCD screen) and then it completely "died." I thought it was the battery but even with a new battery it still will not even turn on. Any suggestions? Is this even worth trying to get repaired?

Might as well send it in and see what they say. If nothing else they might offer you a trade up option to a newer model. They can be reached at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1.

My SD800IS was working fine while in the very hot/humid environment of Yap. I took it out of my air conditioned room and went to take a picture almost immediately. The view finder, the LCD image and the...

The foggy images and lens was due to condensation caused by the camera's surfaces being cold in a humid/moist environment. Usually this happens and goes away without issue. If you believe issues are continuing, consider placing the camera completely in a bowl of uncooked rice. The rice should help eliminate the moisture in the camera.
Hope this helps.

Canon SD1100 -- used in very humid conditions (Cambodia at the end of rainy season) and the lcd gradually fogged over and now is not clearing. Have tried drying the camera but lcd is still foggy....

I would remove the battery immediatly as not to short circuit the very fragile circuits inside! Going from cold to warm, or warm to cold area's will cause a layer of humidity to built up on the tiny components inside, if the camera is not completely dried up (no condensation visible) every time this occurs then it will take even longer to completely dry up/out next time you use it in the same humid conditions. By now the microscopic conduits around/ in the lcd screen could already be creating an acid wich will coat the connections inside the camera, causing likely permanent damage to yuor camera. If you have to use a non weatherproof camera, then imediatly leave it in a dry, warm (not hot) area to completely dry out before next use, this could prolong/prevent any damage. The lcd in the camera has only very tiny openings, so when the screen fogs up it takes a long time longer to dry back out then it did to become foggy....Hope this helps some!

Moisture? Blurry lens or moisture inside

I haven't tried this myself, but I have heard of folks putting their camera in sunshine, and just let it set , and others have used a hair dryer for short durations. Like I said I haven't tried these, and usually moisture is a camera killer.

Fogged lens

Hey paulleem,
If the lens is fogging when going from a dry environment to a very humid one or going from a cold environment to a very warm one then I would suggest putting the camera in a zip lock bag until the camera gets acclimated to the new environment. If the lens is fogged internally then there is most likely a seal broken inside or a cracked lens element and the camera should be looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
