Hi guys, just got a question on my HD Hero 2, i was filming yesterday and it turned out most of the footage wasent worth editing as my casing had collected condensation inside which caused the lens to mist up, now i was using a fully sealed case, i did try an open back case but it didn't mist up as bad as the fully sealed case, maby an open back is more required? - now ive seen that you can buy anti fog patches to use on the inside of the camera that sucks moisture in but is this really necessary? anyone had this issue, let me know whats the best way to stop this thanks!

I've had the same issue.

There's two things to try though - external anti-fog stuff from halfords, or tissue / kitchen paper folded up and put in the gaps. I'd be tempted to iron them into shape, and get more material in there than folding by hand. Both methods give some degree of success.

Personally, I'd just buy the inserts though.

You can try inserts there fine for a fully water proof case but i had the same problem with fogging so used a skeleton case and this stops fogging completly although you can only use it in dry conditions.
It has cut outs in the case and it helps cooling of the go pro so it does not fog up at all.

I think there is also just a frame that you can use to mount your go pro.

Alternatively you could try some silica gel desiccant.
(Those little packets that come with stuff and say do not eat on them)
