Hi
I have some students about to shoot in a public indoor swimming pool in London.
In my experience pool rooms are very warm and humid nowadays,
and I'm worrying about the humidity.
Does anyone have any experience of this and/or advice?
Thanks in advance...

Cooling and condensation would be the things to think about. I doubt that either would be a problem. Just be sure that the camera is warm enough that water won't condense on it before you take it into the pool room.

If you put the material a pair of hours before in the pool area and you open the cases and let them warm, the humidity will not be a problem. I mean ALL camera material (lenses, filters, matte box, body...)

Good luck!!

I shot in a warm swimming pool a couple of times and encountered absolutely no problems with my Red.

We shot with Red's in 2008 in the Bahamas on boats, underwater, and sometimes chest high in the ocean and never had a problem. A pool shouldn't be a problem.
