    Post Lens care : - Nikon Q&A

    How do I clean the camera lens?

    The best way to clean a lens is to use a piece of lint free lens cleaning tissue and a small amount of Lens Cleaning solution. Do not use anything containing abrasives or solvents, only use Lens Cleaning Solution.
    First we recommend taking a small blower brush to blow off or brush away loose dust or debris.
    Next, place a drop or two of cleaner on the tissue (never directly onto the lens) and then wipe the lens in a circular motion, beginning in the center and working your way outward, removing any marks or smear.

    If the above supplies are not available a clean, dry, soft, lint free cloth can be used to clean the lens. Do not breathe on the lens to fog it for cleaning. There are harmful acids in breath that can damage lens coatings. Just use the blower bulb, then brush, and wipe the lens in a circular spiral from the center outward.

    The same method can be used to clean the viewfinder eyepiece of Nikon cameras.


    How can I prevent fungus from growing in my lens?

    The possibility of fungus growth can be minimized by storing the equipment in well-lit and well-ventilated environments with moderate temperatures and low humidity. We recommend removing equipment from carrying cases during storage and not storing cameras or lenses with clothing.

    I think this is scaremongering, not uncommon on US websites. What kind of acids that potentially can damage lens coating would come from our lungs or our mouth? The stomach contains acids, we can clearly taste it when vomiting.

    I think they tested people with bad breath and possibly bacteria from their mouth did lead to something ;-)
