About moisture condensation . . .
● You have observed that pouring a cold liquid
into a glass will cause drops of water to form
on the glass‘ outer surface. This same
phenomenon occurs on the head drum of a
camcorder when it is moved from a cool
place to a warm place, after heating a cold
room, under extremely humid conditions or
in a place directly subjected to the cool air
from an air conditioner.
● Moisture on the head drum can cause severe
damage to the video tape, and can lead to
internal damage to the camcorder itself.
