Lens Cleaning Tips!
Getting your camera ready to take those beautiful, summer shots? Here are some tips on cleaning your camera lense!
- A blower is a good item to have, it allows you to blow off dust without touching the lens.
- A cleaning kit is a great tool to have! Make sure yours includes a soft cloth, lens fluid and q-tips for removing finger prints, smudges and stubborn dust along the edges.
- Never spray lens cleaning fluid directly on the lens! Always spray it on the cloth or lens tissue, then clean the lens.
- Start cleaning at the center of the glass and work your way to the outer edge in a circular pattern with the damp part of the cloth. After using the damp part of the cloth swing over to the dry side of the cleaning cloth and repeat the process.
If you have a protection filter on each lens you will never have to clean the lens itself! This is a great advantage as you don’t run the risk of scratching or damaging your lens, just the filter. Filters are easy to repair and cost significantly less to replace than a lens.
