->> First, how does one shoot with a mask and not have their camera eyepiece fog up?

->> You need something to make the top of the mask conform to the bridge of your nose. If it's a paper mask, it's got a wire that will do that. If it's a homemade or cloth mask, you could use a twist-tie from a grocery store and stitch it in with needle and thread.

It won't be a perfect solution, but it should reduce the amount of breath that gets redirected upward to your eyes.

->> I'd imagine the Hoodman will help, but you're right, it's definitely a pain.

->> I have been using a clear face shield. $4.95 at your local Staples. It took me about 10 minutes to get used to the minimal view distortion, but I can breath a lot better and do not get that moist mask thing.

I have been cleaning the inside with a disinfecting wipe, then drying it with a paper towel so it does not streak.

And my ears do not get wrecked either!
