I have a phobia when returning from a trip using my camera, because I know I will be spending more than 1 hour cleaning it.
I am not clear what are the specific areas to clean, and what to use to clean where.
So I end up doing this:
a. wipe camera body using cleaning solution on paper/cloth (to remove dust or sweat)
b. blow front of lens using blower
c. remove lens from body and blow the back of lens (the side attaching to camera body)
d. wipe LCD screen using cleaning solution (to remove fingerprints)
e. wipe shoulder strap using dettol wipes (to remove sweat stains)
f. wipe lens covers (front and back covers) and camera lens interface cover using cleaning solution on paper/cloth
g. wipe the camera bag external using dettol wipes (general hygiene cleaning)
Is this a complete cleaning coverage or did I miss out important areas that need cleaning? eg. viewfinder window, glass interior of camera body etc.
Or are some of the cleaning steps redundant or silly or no need to clean after every trip?
Hope to hear some advice from you experts out there so I can clean my camera more effectively and efficiently and have a more focused cleaning session rather than an aimless tedious cleaning session every time.
