I live in Mississippi where the humidity is high (to say the least). Subsequentlt, we use air conditioning a lot.

When I go outside (or exit my car) the lens on my camera fogs up pretty quickly. Does this cause any damage to the lens or camera ? If so how can I prevent it ?

I know my Nikon D60 isn't the "best" or "greatest" camera in the world, but I like it and don't want to screw it up.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Fogging also happens in the winter time when coming in from the very cold outside to the warm inside. Over time it could create conditions favorable for fungus to grow, which is difficult to remove once it starts to grow. So, yes over time, you want to avoid the lens fogging. One way to do it is to place the camera in a sealed plastic ziploc bag with the air squeezed out before going outside. Allow the camera to come to outside air temperature before removing it from the bag...10-15 minutes should be enough. The procedure should be reversed in the winter time.
