Ah well, I was so impressed by these cameras and now they're leaking. You can see the moisture here:

Any tips on stopping this? The same thing happened to my older Covert Black 60 and I only managed to fix it by putting it under an umbrella-like plastic hood.

What about using silicone caulk on the seams, or is the water getting in through the lenses?

Steel security boxes make a big difference as far as preventing leaks. Since it looks like the leak is somewhere on top or upper side of the camera, you might try sealing along that seam with Goop, the marine version which is IR resistant. We homebrewers have used it for year to attach Fresnell lenses and lens glass on our builds. It stays flexible and lasts for years without coming lose -- use only a thin bead along the seam.

It could be leaking around the door seal. Water will get into that compartment, heat up and moisture works its way into the camera from sd card slot...

You can put some petroleum jelly on your finger and run it along the rubber seal and this can help.

A lock box or rain shield can help. If you block a lot of light then the light metering will be off.

You can make something using the bottom of a milk jug for example... ambient light still gets through but the camera is in the bottom of the jug essentially.

Carve the sides out so as to allow for side pir sensing. Adapt to your mounting. Looks bad but a lot cheaper than a lock box.

Or just cut yourself a piece of plexiglass and make a "holder" for it at a downward angle over the camera. Light gets in but most rain is shed. The milk jug style might provide better protection in blowing wind and rain.

That's what I did for my old Covert.


I did email the Browning support people after seeing the photo they asked me to send it in for repairs.
