Is this Spring, overheated Spring or already Summer? Hong Kong has reached as high as 33 degrees centigrade this week. Fortunately, the humidity has not set it and there have been pockets of showers every day or two.
During the last, and first, Hong Kong Ricoh users meetup, I gave sort of a very brief talk about pointers for caring for cameras and so on. One was that a camera should be left cooling down in the bag for some 10 to 20 minutes after going outside from a cooler indoor venue lest condensation will build up too drastically and do harm to the cameras. Interestingly, as I made mention at the meetup, some photographers have been seen using the corner of their shirt or their body hair on their forearm to clear the condensation off the lens. An unbelievably silly stunt, I'd to say.
