Re: Weather sealing user’s expectations

Hi,

After bringing a camera indoors after shooting in very cold conditions it should be put in a plastic bag to prevent condensation from forming on both it's exterior and it's interior until the cameras has warmed up to room temperature!

Vis a vis fog and seals, these seals are a sort of silicon sponge and they work by surface tension and are not water tight but do have the benefit of allowing air to ventilate the camera body which permits humidity to escape, however, I would count on this in the case of a severe fog soaking in which case I would place the camera in a dry warm place after drying down the outside with the lens removed and crossing my fingers!

I would never do a severe outside water test to WR was working, to me this is just asking for trouble if the sevice dept. decides it was user error.
