Cleaning the camera
Have any of you some tips on how to clean the camera and the lenses. I just don't want to "blow" away dust but also disinfect it or clean with some sort of fluid. I mean it's been with me everywhere and my fingers been everywhere (almost) and after that placed on the camera. The schmutz that must be on that thing is hard to even imagine..

Cotton-sticks maybe but do you have something else? Obviously I don't want to risk destroying the electronics inside (a D80)..

Cheers,..

Eclipse Cleaning Solution & Pec Pads. An air blower. And a Lens Pen..

First you use the Air Blower, then you use the Lens Pen. Then finish with the Air Blower again. If the Lens Pen doesn't clean it up good enough, break out the Eclipse Cleaning Solution & Pec Pads..

The Eclipse Cleaning Solution & Pec Pads can be used anywhere on the camera..

One thing you will want to be careful of is DEET. If you have DEET on your hands, don't touch your camera. It will burn the plastic, rubber, etc...

Your camera manual probably has this info in it... something like a damp cloth for the exterior. You want to be very careful about applying any sort of solvent or disinfectant to the body or lens. The Eclipse fluid is not supposed to affect the plastic of the exterior, although I have no idea how well it will kill nasties left behind. I have wiped mine down with a disinfectant cloth called Vionex more than once, without problems. But I put my hands, and my camera, in places that you don't even want to know about.

Since an autoclave is out of the question... we do what we can. The threat of leaving nasties on the camera is very real in my line of work..

DEET is the active ingredient in mosquito repellent. And it will melt plastic...

I've never tried one of the alcohol sanitizers on the camera body. It would *probably* work, but may leave stains..
