Caring for your Digital Camera

Avoid scratching any part of the camera.
Always keep dust cap on lenses if they are not being used.
Never use Paper towels, paper napkins to clean the camera, this can scratch the lenses.
If your digital camera needs extensive cleaning, take it to a local camera shop.
If your camera wont be used for a long time, the batteries and the memory card should be removed.
Do keep your camera dry. If condensation forms on it, take the memory card out as this can cause internal problems
When needed, wipe the lens with a few drops of lens cleaning fluid to remove stubborn dirt
Buy a soft padded camera case to carry around your digital camera. This will protect it from most hard knocks and falls.
If you have more than two lenses that you use, it maybe worth while to buy a portable bag or carry case to keep safe the camera and optics
The best cloth to use to clean a camera is a micro fiber cloth. You can also use lens tissue made especially for cameras.
Another way of removing dust and grit from a camera lens or filter is to use C02/compressed air; a quick blast of it should dislodge most dust particles from the lens.
