Hi,

I've recently bought a set of Lens Cleaning Kit from CP at the price of $8.50. The set includes:

1) A lens blower
2) A piece of orange cloth
3) A bottle of lens cleaning liquid
4) A stack of lens cleaning paper
5) 5 sticks of cotton buds

Can anyone please tell me what should be the correct way to make use of this set of stuff? What is the order that I should use the items and how should I use them? Thanks in advance! :embrass:

Lens tissue, clean from outer circumference to the centre of lens.
Dats all I do.

me only have the blower n a microfiber cleaning cloth .........

wat me normally do iz to uze the blower to blow away the duzt on the filter and/or lenz ....

if the duzt perziztently stayz on ..... me will exhale my breath onto the surface n then uze the cloth to wipe in a circular fazhion frm the center of the lenz outwardz .....

me will try to uze the blower to remove the duzt n not touch the filter ( more so for the lenz ) if pozzible .....

Izzit? I read somewhere from outside in. Reason being if inside out, then "debris" will gather at the circumference of lens.
I dunno, am confused rite now. :confused:

Yah. Then clean from the centre of the lens. Cleaner dat way.
I oso not sure. Remember reading on the net somewhere about this.

Extracted from Canon site: "Gently wipe the lens surface from the edges toward the center of the lens, with a lifting rather than rubbing action. A micro-fiber cleaning cloth is a good alternative to lens tissue, and requires no lens cleaning fluid."

:dunno:
