(correction) GoPro3 Black - still fogging problems!!!

Postby Toby » Sat Mar 30, 2013 10:22 am

when I put my GP3 into the kite, I didn't had any fogging problems.

Now when I had it on my back, where it gets wet from time to time, it still fogs!

But not in the center anymore, but around it...which is better than the other way around!

Testing with the anti fog pads now...will post how it went soon!

Did you have the anti fog inserts?
Does the black actually need the antifog inserts?

I have three Gopro 3 cameras. I use on kiteboard, kite and helmet and none fog now. They have corrected the fogging issue. :D

Best regards

Probably the flat lens makes it less prone to wind chill. And the black body makes the air inside hotter, so the air can contain more vapor.

I am no expert on this but the hero 1 ran very warm in the waterproof case thus creating density v the outside temp. The hero 2 did not run quite as warm so less of a problem but I did use to use anti fog strips in both. The 3 runs cooler so no problems now. I will needto sell my strips.

That's good to know! I've been putting them in out of habit and the damn things break down and put a load of dust inside the case. Be nice to get ride of them.
