FOG INSIDE THE WATER HOUSING

PREVIOUS / NEXT

EQUIPMENT by KRISS on 10 october 2016

The first time I tried my water housing, I ended up with lots of fog on the front element that would dissipate on its own after a few seconds underwater.
This time, for my last shoot, I ended up with a more serious problem with fog that persisted after minutes underwater and we had to get back to the shore to fix it.
Here is what happened…

I cleaned my dome port thoroughly before that session including the neoprene element that sits in it for some obscure reason.
It came with it and since it covers ugly double sided scotch tape I left it there.
But if it’s not perfectly dry, and Neoprene can take ages to do that, it will create fog even if you have a little bag of silice inside the housing.

That’s exactly what happened to me and I had to open the dome port, which I really don’t like to do out of salt water, remove the neoprene, let the port dry a few minutes and screw it back on again.
Then I was Ok for the rest of the shoot.
You can see in the following photographs the fog forming as a screen from what I took before I realised the problem.
