waterproof housing blurs from heat

[ New ]

good evening.

I recently bought a new hero 7 black dusk white edition, the camera after a while is heated up, and when i use it in a waterproof housing the lens section is getting blur from the difference of the temp. i send it on the official service in my country and they did an update but the problem is still here.

is there any sollution or anything that i can do ?

If you are using it in a wateproof housing underwater then you're most likely getting condensation on the inside of the housing and this is causing your blur.  The exact same fogging happens on swimming googles and facemasks etc.

 

In this case you just need to purchase some antifog inserts and put them into your waterproof housing when you go to dive.

Thank you for your reply. But this fogging is happening and outside the water. When I mount it on my motorbike helmet

Then your camera is still having condensation issues due to the different temps and relative humidity.  Unless you dry out your camera properly in a dry environment with a relative low humidity level and then seal it, you will continue to get fogging on the lens.  Funnily enough the way to prevent this is that when mounted on your helmet, keep it in the dive case and put anti fog inserts in the dive case.
