SR2 Eyepiece Fogging Problems

Recommended Posts

So I work at Montana State University we have 2 SR2's and 1 SR1. It gets really cold here in the winter. We have constantly run into a problem where once the DP puts the eyepiece to his or her eye, within five seconds the class has condensation forming on it. You could see how this can be a problem on long takes. Especially if your hand holding the camera. I was wondering if anyone knows a way to do something about this. Perhaps heating the eyepiece or something. Any suggestions would be welcome.

 

Thanks

Heated eyepieces are available for a variety of cameras, Arri and other makes. A cheaper solution is to attach a couple of chemical handwarmers to the eyepiece with a rubber band.
