    Just use a slightly damp, clean cloth, then wipe/cool blow dry after.

    Contrary to popular belief, it does help to wipe clean a camera especially after exposure to harsh or salty conditions.

    i use a damp cloth to wipe the body and lens after every shoot cause i have sweaty palms. After wiping, i leave it in my dry box to dry it further...

    I usually use a damp cloth to wipe the exterior, then a dry cloth to go over again. Also use a soft brush to remove dust trapped in the button/dials/hotshoe/eyepiece area.

    After that put the camera in the drybox.

    Just a damp clothe is fine.
