how to do it ah?? the lens damn small on my ixus 330
At edges, you can use cutton bud. However, for centre and larger part, it is encourage to use fibre cloth with your finger...as you can wipe more thoroughly, and cutton bud might leave those circular line later.Originally posted by icematrix
can i just use a cotton bud and clean it..? like wipe it on the lens itself gently... smoothly... like my girlfriend does it... heheh.. *horny*
will the cotton bud introduce scrathces if i do it right?
ok will do thnx for the advice.. how abt the dust inside the lens??Originally posted by Kho King
get a micro fibre cloth (special one for cleaning lens), get a cutton bud. Round the cutton bud with your cloth, make a breath to your lens...before the condense air/water disappear, clean it in circular motion from center to outter side.
Repeat a few times if necessary.
You can't do anything with the dust inside a lens, except sending it to expert to clean (no need to spend that money...it wouldn't affect your picture). The reason to learn is...don't blow your lens too often as you are blowing the dust into it.Originally posted by budiman10

Only u can tell. However, most of the time I encounter with 2nd hand lenses, those line are just improper cleaning of lens leaving some residual on it. Use some lens cleaner, together with micro fibre cloth and cutton, clean it again in a proper way. Check the achieve for lens cleaning method.Originally posted by jude
i was cleaning my lens the other day with the micro fiber cloth and it left a few lines on the len, could it be possible scratches?
NEVER drop anything lens cleaner directly onto the lens surface. It is too strong for the coating...and the excessive drop will flow INTO the body of the lens...Use only one or half a drop on a lens tissue or micro fibre cloth.Originally posted by icematrix
