Hi all,

Is there any way we can slow down the process of turning yellow on white camera body? I know it can't be prevented.. But wondering if it can be lighten or slowed down..

Maybe can try cleaning it with a damp cloth everytime you finish shooting?

Or just wear cotton gloves..

buy a can of white spray paint. or white paint markers.

but TBH, white colored products will easily turn yellow unless they have a special coating to prevent that.

i heard that saliva helps. the enzymes in saliva breaks down the yellow gunk stuck to the camera body.

lick your camera!

The white plastic turns yellow because it has absorbed impurities from the environment. Like you said, there is no way to stop it. However, keeping it in dry cabinet/ air-tight box MAY slow down the process (although dry cabinet/ air-tight box do not equate clean environment).

for a start dun use with hands wet..sweaty palms...

Jif or CIf works on white stuff like Legos..then again this is camera..so might wanna try a bit and rub using pieces of cloth.

erm..why get a white in the first place..heh..looks nice but dirty easily..
another way if ur camera is those small ones..like M4/3 or mirrorless..apply leatherlette on it..looks nicer too.
