In my last blog post, 7 Quick Tips for Keeping Your Camera Safe, I included a photo of some of my friends on a golf outing (tip #5). Unfortunately, my lens had condensation on it, so my friends looked like they were standing in a fog. It was definitely not a usable photo! I promised to show a quick solution that could save it.
