Cleaning the lens, viewfinder and flash

Wipe the lens, viewfinder and flash with a soft cloth to remove fingerprints, dust, etc.

Cleaning the lens

  • Do not use a cleaning solution containing organic solvents, such as thinner, or benzine.
  • When cleaning the lens surface, remove dust with a commercially available blower. In case of dust that sticks to the surface, wipe it off with a soft cloth or tissue paper slightly moistened with lens cleaning solution. Wipe in a spiral pattern from the center to the outside. Do not spray lens cleaning solution directly onto the lens surface.

Cleaning the flash

Cleaning the camera body

Cleaning the monitor
