No need to "activate" them when you first get them. If you're in really humid climates, then they even say you won't get 4-5 uses out of them, more like 1-3. I just re-cook mine before using the camera since I'm storing them in the open. Then once they're in the camera, I can leave them there as long as I need.

I had the inserts for awhile but eventually lost most of them. now I just use toilet paper.

seems like the inserts should be included with the camera. IMHO they are way to expensive to buy as an accessory especially considering you only get some little pieces of special paper.

fold up some little strips of toilet paper roughly the same size as the anti-fog inserts. insert them in the same spot you would the anti fog inserts and go. I get 1 - 1 1/2 sessions of no fogging by using this method.

seems to work fine as long as the toilet paper roll has been stored in a dry place.

a lot cheaper then the inserts and no oven required.

If you put a piece of 'aluminium paper' around middle back of your gopro.
The foog remain in aluminium paper... simple, silly & economic ....

hey guys,

have anyone experienced fogging on the gopro cameras? today i got my new HD goPro for a test run, and after 3 minutes of being on the water the camera completely fogged from inside, to a point that the video is completely unwatchable.

Does anyone knows any tricks to it? or is it my camera that is with problems?

cheers.

I have done a few tests on various solutions to fogging on Rahotu200 youtube channel. The best options out of eight options I tested was to hold the open camera housing under an air con vent and then insert 3 anti fog inserts, wait 17 hours for the inserts to do their thing and then film. As per Rahotu200 videos it works under some very tough test conditions and write up on what causes camera fogging.
