I have noticed when I enter "Green house"( in Japanese 温室. It is a place where temperature is high and there are some beautiful plants.) and when I take the lens cap off the camera lens become foggy. Some time I wait but some time I use lens cloth to get rid of fog quickly.;-)

But yesterday, there was a senior guy who told me that using shopping bag to keep camera inside and wait is best for the camera and lens.

I wonder if you guys could share your techniques what you do in situations like this?

The only thing you need to do is to make sure that your camera is not colder than the air around it. The easiest way to do it is protect the camera from moisture, bring it inside, and wait until it warms up.
