About moisture condensation . . .
â You have observed that pouring a cold liquid into a glass will cause drops of water to form on the glassâ 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. â Moisture on the head drum can cause severe damage to the video tape, and can lead to internal damage to the camcorder itself.
