Hello,

Been searching awhile without a clear solution.

When shooting in cold climate,
my viewfinder tends to fog out easily and make it unusable for couple of minutes.
I normally hold my breathe, but i guess breathing come too naturally sometime and will cloud out the viewfinder, very frustrating.
Even wrapping a thick scarf around my mouth didnt help.

Anyone can share their experience...some possible solution i am considering ?

- anti-fog eyepiece (for specific model only, eg. Nikon DK17A) not avail for my D90.
- the regular anti-fog liquid (works for viewfinder ? safe ?)
- fog wipes

TS,

The tick is simple : just remember to put your camera in a ziplog bag when you enters from a cold environment to a warmer environment.

Think TS is referring to shooting conditions while outside in the cold.

Is it due to the proximity of the face to the viewfinder? or the human breathe?

if its the proximity of the face, maybe use those extended view finder that magnify the view so the face is further from the glass and do not fog it up would help?
if its the breathe then holding the breathe should do the trick?

Its my breathing.

I try to control, but for pro-long shooting,
it really makes me breathless :bsmilie:
and also sometimes, you will sub-consciously tends to forget esp when you are concentrating on the pix.
