How to Clean your DSLR

*awwww..this is my dear baby EOS 450D*


Use a UV or Skylight filter
Before I get into cleaning techniques let me share a tip that all DSLR users should consider.
For each lens you own you should consider purchasing a UV or skylight filter.
Keep it attached to your lens at all times. In addition to it cutting out UV light they will
protect your lens from scratches or even breakage. It also means that when you do your
cleaning you’ll just be cleaning the filter instead of the actual lens (unless dust gets right in).
Keep in mind that filters come in different levels of quality – if you have a high end lens
consider investing in a higher end filter.
Lens hoods can also help protect the end of your lens as do the lens caps for both the front and back
end of your lens that come with it – always use them!

Lens Cleaning Fluid
In most camera stores you’ll find an alcohol based lens cleaning fluid that is well worth having.
It will help you to lift off fingerprints and other smudges without leaving streaks on your lens or filter.
Keep in mind that you don’t need too much of this fluid at a time – usually just a drop or two wiped in a
gentle circular motion with a cleaning tissue will remove most marks on a lens or filter.
Always apply the fluid to a cloth or tissue rather than the lens itself.

Alternatively – many photographers believe that simply breathing on your lens and then wiping with a cloth
is a safer method for cleaning it – rather than introducing harsh fluids. My own approach is to start with
reath and then use the fluids for difficult marks to remove.

Cleaning Tissues
To apply the cleaning fluid grab yourself some lens tissues. They are a very thin paper that will let you
wipe your lenses without scratching them. These tissues are one use tissues and should be thrown away after using.
Don’t use normal facial tissues – these are too rough and will scratch your lens.

Cleaning Cloth
An alternative to cleaning tissues is the more modern microfiber cleaning cloth. These washable cloths grab a hold
of dust and oils on your lens. The main thing to be aware of with them is to keep them clean themselves
with a regular wash – alternatively just buy yourself a new one as they are very cheap to buy and that’ll negate the
risk of wiping something from your wash into your lens.

Before using a cloth always check the lens to make sure you don’t have any larger pieces of grit on it.
The last thing you want to do is wipe it into your lens causing a scratch. Remove any larger gritty dust using
a blower or brush before wiping.


Blowers
Most camera stores sell blowers of different varieties. While I’d personally advise being very careful with
them on the inside of your camera (you could actually end up blowing dust into it) they can be great for cleaning
the outside of your camera – including the lens. Before you use a blower make sure you squeeze if a few times first
to get any dust that might be inside it out.

Brushes
If you have a lot of dust on your camera one good tool to get the big stuff off is a brush.
Get one with fine and soft hair (camel hair) to avoid scratching your lens.
Similarly you might like to invest in a lens cleaning pen which has a retractable brush on one end an a
cleaning pad on the other.

Silica Gel
One lost preventative measure before we end.
Grab some silica gel sachets to throw into the bottom of your camera bag.
The little sachets will draw any moisture in your bag to them to save your lenses and DSLR from being impacted by it.
Keep changing over this sachets over time or they’ll attract too much water and become useless.


p/s: i got this online. and ive been sticking to this tips since then. take care of ur baby DSLR ya!
