Reducing the drain on the flash batteries will help (e.g. by swapping between sets frequently, or only using the flash as much as strictly ...

As for NiCd, I think nobody sells this crap anymore because it's really bad for the planet. For precautions of use, hide your gear from the sunlight as much as possible. It's ...


Condensation happens when the glass surface is significantly cooler than the temperature of the air hitting it. Keeping the lens warm will prevent it misting up. The comment you got asking you if your golf cart has air conditioning is relevant. If you're keeping the camera cool in between shots then this could contribute to the issue. The greater the ...


Living in Florida, which is a semi-tropical area, condensation forming is a major problem. Little somewhat circular darker spots will be seen in RAWs and JPGs.
