Hi all,

I just bought my Nikon D50. What are the recommended cleaning kit accessories that I need to buy?

Thanks.

Remember to go for the "original" lens pen, www.lenspen.com I think KT sells some.

There are quite a few copies going around like in Carrefour but they use pads or something on the cleaning end.

I can't access the link. By the way, what's KT? Where's it?

Additional to that, what do you mean by "original" lens pen?

Where is KT? What does KT stands for?



I also use the lens cleaning solution, cleaning paper, cloth and blower for cleaning my cameras.

Aldrick, Congratz on getting the D50. Update the user list yet?

even as with any better blowers that has a butterfly valve at the opposite end of the blower, do give it a few squeeze to flush out any dust within before blowing onto the delicate surfaces.....

Don't even bother with cleaning fluid, some of them tend to ruin coatings on lenses/filters etc. If you can just get good quality lens paper or microfibre cloth and just huff on the lens to get some condensation (water) on it if you need to get rid of smear marks.
