Note: You can also use this method if you dropped your smartphone into the toilet bowl! 🚽😆😂
Sometimes camera lenses will fog up internally due to a few reasons:
- change of environment from cool to warm humid place or
- clumsy accident which causes water to seep in the camera but luckily not enough to destroy your camera.
For my camera, if i ask my friends which is the cause, they confirm plus chop will choose number 2.
And yeap! If you chose 2 like they did, you are correct. A cup of tea spilled over my camera which causes a small amount of liquid to seep in the lens area.
This was my immediate reaction.
Holy shit, my RX100m3 😭
After meditation, I managed to calm myself down and think of a solution.
I recalled that I managed to revive my action camera SJ4000 which was infiltrated by water when it was not in its waterproof case (yes, I am that destructive).
And the answer is rice!
I turned on my camera and took out the battery. Doing this, the lens will stay in a protruding position (please read with your most innocent mind).
Then I put the camera with the rice in a sealed tight bag and leave it as long as I could until the fog is completely gone!
After days, I saw the fog was disappearing and I could see a tunnel of light.
Voila! The camera lens has been revived! I can take photo again! Amen, hallelujah! 😂😂😂
You can also use other water absorbing items like silica gel (use brand new one please, not those that you found in tibits 😂😂😂). But personally I like to use rice, because they are very accessible to me plus the number 1 reason is…
It is freaking cheap! 😆😆😆
Hope this tip helps! Cheers! 🎉🎉🎉
