Hi Thomas, would you (or anyone else) be recommending placing the camera in a seal plastic bag (I take it you mean zip lock type) when going back in from "normal" cold weather or "extreme" cold weather?

You got me thinking and that's puting a strain on my tiny brain - lol

well the reason for doing it, is that I would like to prevent the lens from fogging up inside while heating up.

Placing them in seal plastic bags while they adjust to the difference in temperature prevents it, at leas in my experience.

I am not sure about Normal cold weather... I do it when outside temperature gets near -10 which seems to be where the fogging starts becomming an issue up here.

I do think it is depends largely on humidity levels where you are living.

@Asad,
Thanks for the welcome...
