Sudden change of temperature
In reply to Simon Devlin, 6 months ago

.. created condensation once you opened the battery door / changed the lens.

The camera body was outside, in the rain and cold. The temperature difference is perhaps 15-20 degrees if you account for wind too. Ideally, you should wipe the camera and lens clean and moist free, leave it untouched alone for a few hours in the new temperature to prevent condensation.

I suggest that you now leave the camera in the dark, and moist- and dust-free area at a constant room temperature, with open lens mount and battery door open too. Put a bag of silica under each and keep it like that for half a day at least.
