Most of the time the pictures you see: “online”, “in my blog” or “somewhere else” are as perfect as possible, but sometimes it goes horribly wrong.
Today i want to tell the story behind some of the beauty in the things i do.
It isn’t always sunshine
Most of the KAP things i do is making “Time lapses” with my GoPro. On my last trip to “Texel” i encountred a big problem.
My GoPro, as usual in its waterproof case with extra extarnal battery hanging underneed the automatic picavet
The first pictures
The first pictures i took and viewed live over the wifi connection, where fine so i decided to let the kite go to higher altitude. When the kite got higher, the WiFi connection was lost so no live feed any more. As far is i knew, every thing went fine. But it didnt go fine.
3000 pictures, 3000 seconds and 3000 bad things later
That it didn’t go fine was an understatement… It was a beautifull day, sunny, warm, nice winds. The only thing i didn’t counted in was the fact that its colder at higher levels.
combine cold outside and a hot inside -GoPro is getting hot when its working – and you get condensation. Condensation on the casings front screen.
What happens when the lens condenses? Wright bad, bad,very bad pictures
Historie of errors
It wasn’t the first time i had this. Last year on the kite festival of westende i encountered the same issue,
but then, i had no clue what it was.
If you have a GoPro i can recommend using or the open” back door” or use the “anti fog patches” so the condens can go away or being absorbed
