comment How to prevent condensation inside the camera when taking pictures in a cold place?
Even if the air is humidified, getting it as humid as 60% sounds odd. 50% is the recommended maximum to avoid mildew problems.

Are you sure that you have 60% humidity inside in the winter? A more normal value would be around 30%. I currently have 23% indoors, and it's not even proper winter here yet... Normally in the winter the humidity indoors is even lower than outdoors, as the air comes from outside and you heat it up.

comment What can cause blurry and out of focus images on a Nikon D5300 in no flash mode?
Are you sure about the shutter speed? The image shows movement that goes on for a lot longer than 1/800s, more like 1/8s. Although there is movement blur and possibly camera shake, there is still a sharpness to the details, so the focus seems to be correct at least.

Why the downvote? If you don't explain what it is that you think is wrong, it can't improve the answer.

comment Missing photos on a roll of film?
Does any of the images look double exposed? Is sounds like the camera did all the 24 exposures, but didn't feed the film for the 10 missing photos.

comment Incorrect exposed images when shooting sports
The camera has plenty of time to calculate the exposure (for example during the eons of time it takes for the mirror to flip up), so the probable reason is that the camera has too little information (too few metering points) to calculate the correct exposure, or that the lighting is too complicated to automatically determine a good exposure.
