Don’t do this! Are your lenses so dirty you need to do color correction every time you take a shot? Do you change your lenses so often that the noise in your photos is due exclusively to sensor dust? Ever wonder how to return your camera to an out-of-the-box shine before reselling it on Ebay? Well, look no further! This very odd camera cleaning tutorial appeared on YouTube this week and claims to provide the definitive solution to all your camera-cleaning needs:
Pavlis’ cleaning method* will ensure that your camera and lens come out squeaky clean every single time. It will also save you a fortune on camera cleaning kits!
While you’re at it, don’t forget:
- Only use the “full cone” or “high speed” settings on your hose nozzle when rinsing. This will ensure you get every last speck of dirt off the electronics.
- Make sure to dry your camera thoroughly: tumble dry on low heat for about an hour and a half. The lens, too.
- Polish the lens optics afterwards: fine sand is pretty good, as long as it doesn’t have organic material. Super fine sandpaper is even better.
Any other tips you can think of that will make sure you never have to clean your camera or lens again?
