    Default Fungus

    I found my father's old camera,lenses and filters, and noticed that fungus was growing on the lenses and filters(quite disgusting )...I know that I cant do anything about the fungus in the lenses.What is the proper way to clean the fungus? I know it sounds stupid,but the fungus looks like its quite hard to clean off...Im new to this,so I know little about cleaning and this photography stuff,so someone please help...Thank You

    Send it to a professional for cleaning.. you won't want to spoil the lens.

    Generally you don't clean fungus on your own, especially in your case where is seems pretty extensive. Send it in for professional cleaning if you still want the lenses.
