Hello, @dynamite489. Were you riding in extreme weather or temperature condition? Could the vapor be fog or condensation? Try removing the battery and keeping the battery door open for a period of time in a low-humidity environment (ensure the camera lens is safe during this time). See if this clears the vapor. Let us know what you find out. Thanks!
