Canon’s Useful Tips On How to Clean and Care for Your Camera

By Hanssie on June 11th 2014

Camera gear is expensive (duh) and getting them repaired when something happens to them is even more expensive. So knowing how to take care of your gear is vitally important to maintain the health of your gear (and your pocketbook!)

Canon Service and Support has released the following video on how to take care of your camera and lenses with recommendations on how to clean and store your camera. It’s a good basic video for new photographers to learn proper maintenance of your gear, or photographers like me who usually will just send my gear in for cleaning because I don’t want to “mess things up accidentally.”

And who knows? This 8 minute video might save you an expensive trip to the Canon repair center and possibly extend the life of your stuff.

    Can’t agree more with Marta. The most stupid piece of video I’ve seen around from Canon.
    I can’t believe you posted this! What a waste of time! I really expected something helpful. I can’t believe I watched this!

    Super cheese and useless. This reminds me of those government recorded videos from back in the day that show a talk between a mother and a son who was just caught masturbating.

    Did not know that compressed air cans have enough pressure to actually be damaging to sensors. Good to know that.
