Camera condensation - expected or service call ?

It seems there is some condensation in my left pillar camera housing.
Is this expected ? Should I call service ?
Also has the message that the camera is blinded.

FWIW…just looked up this topic on Reddit and ran across this lengthy discussion…

Thanks for the information. I've had the same problem with the camera in the B pillar, but with the heavy rains in California, I've had it a couple of times the left side too. Fortunately is usually goes away fairly quickly, although the right side camera sometimes doesn't clear for 15-20 minutes. I haven't decided whether to set up a service call yet.

Unfortunately, this symptom seems to be par for the course owning a Model Y. I’ve been on subsequent road trips through the rain (usually 2 plus hours) and it happens on both sides. But, like you said, it does go away relatively quickly. I just wonder how much it affects autopilot and overall safety…???
I agree! I don't have FSD, but are these cameras used for that?
It's raining in SOCAL again. I'll see if it happens again today. It's frustrating seeing the warning, but doesn't seem to have any other noticeable affect.
