Was just wondering if anyone has used or tried using the Sony GW77 waterproof camcorder in near zero temperatures? Any trouble? How was its performance? Any advice on how to keep the lens from fogging up with temperature changes? I used it once at an indoor gig and the place where I had to position the camera happened to be directly under an air-conditioning vent. The lens fogged up. Advice anyone?

New scenario. Outside temp was at 13 degrees C. I was shooting video in a hall apcked with about 450 people. Airconditioning was off but doors were open. The lens of my HDR-GW77 fogged up again! Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Maybe try some Rain-X on the lens? I believe thats what GoPro users do.

Thanks, dan4081. But the lens fogs up from the inside. I also noticed that it does that after a continuous shoot, probably from heat generated by the camera itself ... it's just so frustrating to have super-clear videos deteriorate in quality with half the image appearing misted over!

GoPro sells Anti-Fog inserts for their cameras:

Maybe something could be fit into a Sony?
