  • Cleaning cloth or Tissues

How to clean you camera and Lens

Do not use compressed “air” on a camera. Unless held perfectly upright for short amounts of time, these can emit aerosol, and the pressure involved can damage some areas of a camera

  • First, you should take a brush that’s designed to clean photography equipment and brush off all surfaces.
  • Now, take the Air Blower and blow any remaining loose debris (i.e. sand, dust, etc…) off the camera and lens surfaces. Pay special attention to crevices. You should also make sure to blow out the memory card slots and accessory ports.
  • Next, get your Cleaning Cloth/Cleaning Tissues wet with some of your Lens Cleaning Liquid, and clean all surfaces. When cleaning glass surfaces, like lenses and LCD screens, make sure to move the cloth/tissue in a circular motion.  I personally like a Microfiber Cleaning Cloth over tissues.
  • I would not try to clean the rear lens element of a DSLR or Compact System Camera (CSC) beyond just blowing any dust off of it. Being that the rear lens element should almost always be protected from the elements, it shouldn’t need to be cleaned much.
