In some of the photos, I see the cameras look better than when they come out of a new box.
What are you guys using to keep the body looking better than new?


just a few of my thoughts...

I haven't found a need to clean my camera(s). They look, like new, to me.

I had a girlfriend who smeared my old 30D with peanut butter, and that didn't work so well -- in fact to this day I can still see traces:)!

I give my cameras 100% isopropyl alcohol baths 2 times a week.

I barely ever clean lenses or cameras. Just wipe the LCD with my shirt or rocket blow the mirror off. I don't shoot in the dust or throw them in the mud either.

If the photos look good, it's likely the lighting.

I wash my hands regularly, don't feel the need to clean the cameras. Just the glass on the lenses (probably not as much as I should.. lol)

I dont think I have ever cleaned any of my cameras. They get used to much to get dusty.

Clorox disinfectant wipe followed by Pledge. I usually do this as needed which works out to every 2-3 weeks
