No it will only be affected if you drop it in water.

Took my Canon digital camera to Cancun in October (very hot and humid) and had no problems. Like the previous poster said, the only problem is if you drop it in the water.

Good luck!

When you bring it out of your cold, air conditioned room and into the heat the lens will "fog" a bit but it's only temporary. Your camera will be fine, just keep it dry.

I can reliably inform everyone that if you drop your mobile into a glass of red wine on Christmas night.

It won't work.......

But no, we had "fogging" problems with the camcorder but it was only temporary.

Just do not put it in a plastic bag or leave it in the sunlight and you should do fine. My Nikon equipment has never had any problem in Jamaica, the Bahamas, St Lucia or in rainy old Oregon!

Amazin you are right..I bought a new Canon SD 870 for the trip...I freaked out one morning when I did'nt have a LCD display...It actually lasted 10 minutes...I believe you can alleviate this problem by keeping the camera in a case,especially in the AC room...

Bring it into the humidity (outside) a couple minutes early to adjust. Then open it up and it should be all good. This way you won't be wiping the lense.

Hey.. One of my digi cams can be dropped in water and be out in something like -10F. Plus dropped about 5 feet. So far it's been tested except for the cold weather.
