Four nights and one day a week I am out and about. We are in volleyball, soccer and football seasons. 

Friday night was one of the worst nights for shooting football. The rain came with wind and came at an angle.

I had to stay on one side of the field with my back to the rain. I had a raincoat on the lens. For the first time ever,

I had condensation behind the eye piece. You can't wipe that off in the rain. I couldn't use a second camera 

because I could not protect it. When I got home, I put the gear in front of a fan. It seemed OK in the morning.

Nice shot.

 

I had the same issue in alaska, rainned a lot and fog up the eye and lens front element. All I had was a hair dryer that I set on cool. Everything worked great after words.


Thanks, Dennis.
