If condensation forms on the camera, do not use the camera. This is to avoid 
damaging the camera. Remove the lens, memory card, and battery and wait 
until the condensation evaporates. 
If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery 
and store the camera in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. Even while the

darkroom or chemical lab. 
If the camera has not been used for an extended period, test all its functions 
before using the camera. If you have not used the camera for some time or if 
there is an important shoot coming up, have the camera checked by your 
Canon dealer or check the camera yourself and make sure it is working
