Simple Technique for Cleaning Your Camera

When you are out in the field as much as we are, your equipment tends to collect all kinds of unwanted dirt, oil, and grit. Here’s how Varina Patel goes about cleaning her camera and lenses.

The best part of making this video was the onlookers’ faces when Varina was rubbing salt water and sand on the camera and lenses. 😉

FYI: No cameras or lenses where harmed in making of this video. This one was already damaged in Iceland.

About Author Varina Patel

There is nothing more remarkable to me than the power of nature. It is both cataclysmic and subtle. Slow and continuous erosion by water and wind can create landscapes every bit as astonishing as those shaped by catastrophic events – and minuscule details can be as breathtaking as grand vistas that stretch from one horizon to the other. Nature is incredibly diverse. Burning desert sands and mossy riverbanks… Brilliant sunbeams and fading alpenglow… Silent snowfall and raging summer storms… Each offers a unique opportunity. I am irresistibly drawn to the challenge of finding my next photograph, and mastering the skills required to capture it effectively.
