    I was wondering if anyone has had an issue with slight fogging on a Covert Red 40? I checked one of my cams last week and there was what looked like condensation on the inside of the viewing screen. You could still see the pic, but about a quarter of the screen was foggy. Anybody else have this issue?

    Yes I have. Buy a small silica pack and put it inside the camera.

    The silicone they use is known to dry and crack and fall apart after time in the outdoors then allowing moisture to get in.
