How To Clean Your Lenses: Wide Open Camera Style.
***Note: The Audio Is A Bit Messed Up. It Was Frankie Knuckles First Time And I Think I scared Him.
Here is a Quick Take on how to clean your camera lenses the correct way. I shot this in reaction to this video posted here on Light Stalking. There are so many things wrong with that video, I can’t even to begin to waste your time here. This is how we do it in Hollywood. I prefer canned air to the puff balls. I also recommend disposable kimwipes. There is less risk of adding dirt or dust with a fresh one every time. I also recommend using Pancro or any other cleaner that will not degrade the anti-reflective coating on the lens. Rosco is a cheaper alternative. The kicker here is that the cleaning fluid goes on the lens cloth, not the front element. A very light touch is all that is necessary. I prefer using a circular motion. A second hit with the air and off you go. It is not necessary to over clean the front element. The anti reflective coating will degrade on it’s own over time. Anything you can do to prevent that degradation will add value to the most important part of your kit. The lenses.
