Thread: Cleaning Contacts

  1. #1

    Default Cleaning Contacts

    I tried searching the forum for cleaning contacts, but could not find the appropriate thread - though it may be out there somewhere - keep having to wait 45 seconds between each search... anyway,
    I would like to know how you all clean contacts - in particular: battery contacts, hot shoe contacts and maybe lens contacts.
    What is the best way to do this?
    Thanks!
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    Normal usage - just a clean, lint free piece of cloth.

    Greased up - sterile Isopropyl alcohol pads, the wipe dry with a piece of clean lint free cloth. Supoer cheap in a box of 100s.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    If you use eraser, make sure to completely remove those small bits of eraser when you are done.
    There is also a spray-can type of electrical contact cleaner that is sold in Sim Lim Tower. You can spray onto a rag and then use that to clean the contacts (don't spray directly!).
