AS a kind of optical instruments and electronic gadgets, the digital cameras are vulnerable. As to such kind of products, youd better give your digital camera special care. The water and dust may lead the short-circuit to the electronics. For digital camera, the dust not only has bad influence on the circuit, but also the beam path of the camera lens and imaging problem may be occurred.
In fact, its cut and tried to talk about the maintenance of the digital camera. I believe most of the consumers have no doubt to take waterproofing measures, but not every consumer will do the dust-free work elaborately.
The harm the dust does to your digital camera When the there is some dust on the surface of lens, some part of the photo will look soften. And your mode will be affected. The battery touch spot and press key are most affected by the dust. Whats worse, it may lead bad contact and keypad failure. If the transducer is caught by the dust, dark space will be showed on the picture directly.
Precautions of dust-free measures on digital camera Its impossible to thoroughly preclude the possibility of dust intrusion to digital camera, but we can try to avoid taking photos in dusty places. And the “three proofing” digital camera on the market has better dust-proof features.
A good camera case is also necessary for consumer camera. Your digital camera can be put into the camera case when the digital camera is not in operation. Its not important whether the camera case is original or not, but it should not be easy fluff-losing. Otherwise, it comes to be one of the sources of dust. And a tough camera case can enable you take your DSLR camera to walk around.
Its not enough to only rely on the digital cameras dust proof function, reducing the chance to get in touch with the dust is the fundamental solution. When you replace the DSLRs lens, keep the lens upward and the body downward. As a matter of gravity, less possibility for the dust to remain on the viewfinder.
For the digital camera not frequently used, its suggested to take out the battery first and then place the camera in cupboard with the plastic wrapper on the surface. For the DSLR camera, a drying cabinet can keep the camera away from moisture and cut off the dust effectively.
The precautions of dust removal for digital camera The camera will not be disturbed by dust, if its well shielded. But if your digital camera is unluckily caught by dust, the dust removal will be required.
The lens should not be directly touched. If the there is some dust on the lens, its better to blow. For some oil dust which cant be blow away, 3M ScotchBrite can be effective. But the scotchbrite should be new and clean. For the dust on the camera body, brush can be used. Only take care no sweeping to the parts which is sensitive to dust.
