Coming to you from Tony and Chelsea Northrup, this excellent video will show you everything you need to know to properly maintain your photography equipment. An additional tip for using a blower is to keep your camera pointed down while using it to allow gravity to help any bits of dust or debris to fall out of the body. In general, the best philosophy I’ve followed when it comes to cleaning lenses, bodies, or anything with particular fragile or sensitive parts is to use the minimal amount of physical contact necessary to effectively get the job done. In other words, if you’re cleaning a lens, for example, start by just using a blower (99% of the time, this gets the job done for me). If that doesn’t work, move on to a lens brush. If that doesn’t work, move on to wet cleaning. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
