So how will you, the owner of the digicam maintain and protect your gadget?
In order for you to do so, you must first know the parts of the digicam. The lens of the camera is the most significant part of a digicam. Clear and sharp images and shots all depends on it. However, dust, unintentional scratches and fingerprints and other dirt and blotches can affect and damage the contrast feature of your camera. With them, they could possibly produce out of focus pictures that may lead to further damage and even replacement. This would cost you an additional expense of having to repair the lens or worse, the whole digicam. So to maintain and protect your camera from these unwanted damaging factors, here are some helpful tips and suggestions.
Try to avoid contact with the lens. As much as possible, keep the lens of your digicam covered and place them in a bag when not in use to protect it from dust, dirt and other potential destruction or damage. Basically, when something comes in contact with the lens, it could probably affect the special coatings that make the lens of your camera work well. Additional caution should also be minded when using the digital camera just to make sure that the lens is far from any contact since it is grasped by hands. In the like manner, keep the digicam away from direct sunlight or heat for it could possibly damage some barrels that are part of the lenses. Another thing about lenses is to keep them dry always. In fact, even the moist coming from a person’s breath could possibly damage your digicam. It is said that moisture can create fogging thus distorts the lens housing.
So to clean the sensitive lenses, removing visible elements should be done by not using your bare hands. You may use an ear syringe or even dust blower to get rid of the unwanted dust and dirt. Brushes with soft bristles are also good in cleaning your lenses but make sure that they are clean for we are avoiding any possible scratches. On the other hand, removing fingerprints and blotches should be wiped using a dry microfiber cloth. If you really want it really clean, lens cleaning fluids can be availed in digicam stores.
While for the direct heat and extreme temperature conditions, there are also ways in protecting your digicams from them. Since you carry your digital cameras whenever you go, the environment you are into would probably be harsh on it. Thus, extra care again should be minded. When you are in an extremely cold weather, it said that you should carry the camera close to you or cover it with a cloth to keep it warm. On rainy days, you may wrap them in a plastic just to protect them from moisture. Same goes when you are on the beach where sand is together with the wind, covering them too with plastic and keeping them away from direct sunlight will prevent them from any potential damage.
Reducing contact, exposure, proper cleaning and protecting the lens from the harsh environment could really help your digicam function well and live more.
