Thread: Newbie Reporting

  1. #1

    Default Newbie Reporting

    Hi guys!!!!! New to photography n hope to learn as much as I can from u guys! Juz bought my first DSLR: Canon 550D.

    First question as a Newbie: do i need remove e lens from body when I store them in e dri-box? Cos i wonder frequent removal of lens will spoil e tracks or not, as like most mechanical parts.

    Thanks!!!!!

    welcome to cs

    to ans ur qns, well it's up to ur preference, unless ur dry cabi doesnt have enuf space to store dslr + lens attached. my father done that in the past with his film camera and the mount is still in gd condition now. cameras arent tofu to begin with in the first place.
    Google is your friend. Make use of it.

    The lens mount will outlast you in all likelihood!

    worry less, shoot more.

    dont bother to remove.. like you say, constant movement will wear out anything. and by removing,the sensors and back elements of the lenses has a higher chance of exposure to dust.

    I reccommend that you do not remove it.
    It reduce the likelyhood of dust going into the
    camera body and your lens.

    Hi there, welcome!

    No need remove when storage. If you prefer due to space constraint or otherwise, go ahead. Personal choice.
