I'll cut to the chase: Yesterday, it was about 16°F and snow was just started to fall. After taking pictures outside for more than an hour, I decided to go back inside to warm up a bit.
The problem? I completely forgot about the camera and lens that were hanging from my neck. Not only that, but my camera bag was accidentally unzipped. Needless to say, everything fogged over rather quickly. In desperation, I rushed inside my apartment to grab a microfiber cloth, so that I could prevent my gear from fogging up any more than it already had.
In hindsight, this was not a smart move, given that the inside of my apartment was a toasty 68°F. Obviously, I ended up making things worse than they already were.
At this point, I had decided that it was already far too late to correct my error, so I furiously began wiping down my equipment with the microfiber cloth. I also used my Giotto Rocket to blow some air onto the surface of my lenses.
After about 20 minutes, everything *appeared* to be in good shape. There was no fog that I could see, and things seemed to be working just fine. However, I am now 100% paranoid about fungus. I've read horror stories online about this issue, and I just can't shake the feeling that I have now greatly increased my chances for it to appear inside my equipment.
Does anyone out there have any thoughts on this? Would it be worth it to have Canon look my equipment over, or am I being way too over-protective?
