General camera care
Keep your camera in a camera carrier
An inexpensive camera carrier is all you need to keep your camera from dust, dirt and those unexpected falls.
Keep it clean
Clean the exterior of your camera by wiping it with a dry, clean cloth or soft camel's hair brush. Never use harsh or abrasive cleaners or organic solvents on your camera or any of its parts. Keep away from contact with oily substances such as suntan lotion. If your camera has a LCD, breath on it gently to create some wetness, then wipe it with a soft cloth or untreated photographic lens tissue.
Keep it from moister
Most cameras are not watertight. If your camera has been subjected to bad weather or you suspect water has gotten within it, turn off the camera and take away the batteries and memory card. Let the camera air dry for one day. If it does not work, get in touch with an authorized service center or your camera's manufacturer.
Purchase a less expensive one-time-use camera
If you are going to be taking pictures in a location where you are worried about damaging your camera, a one-time-use camera is a smart alternative.
If you are not going to use your camera for a while, take away the batteries. You do not want them to leak in the camera. Be sure to store your camera in its camera carrier in a dry, cool place.
Keeping the lens clean
Keep the lens enclosed whenever possible. When not in use, maintain the lens covered to protect it from scratches and fingerprints.
Remove dust from the lens
Lens surfaces are very delicate—clean them only when necessary. First, blow away any loose dirt or dust with a bulb brush or a can of compressed air. Then, use a lens tissue intended for photographic equipment and either breath lightly onto your lens to form a vapor, or wet the tissue with a photographic lens cleaner.
