    DO any of you do any work (club guys) in really SMOKEY venues? With all that cigarette smoke floating in the air, do you think it takes a toll on the camera sensor or lenses at all? Any personal experience?

    It just kind of popped into mind of one of the things I would be apprehensive about doing. I can picture the sensor or lenses getting gunked up like the windows of a car with that cigarette smoke film that's left over and a huge pain in the cock to get off.

    I've shot a couple sorority events in bars. I generally just step outside if I need to change lenses, just in case.

    Yeah no smoking here. I wouldn't think it would effect it though. The air would be moving pretty well with all the people around.

    They took out smoking in VA as well recently. Still can do it if the place if private and requires a membership or they have the room sealed off.
