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

I've never tried it myself, but is there any danger of the "pledged" body getting slippery in your hands in hot humid areas, or when your hands sweat?

a weak solution of HCl, applied with fine grit sandpaper. Works especially well on screens and lens front elements.

I've never noticed any problems in the field. I just wetted my hands using a faucet and I will concede that the grip is more slippery (relative to gripping clean rubber) but I can still maintain a very secure grip.

I use Endust wipes for electronics when they get a little grungy and always after I've been shooting around salt water ... lenses too!

I do a lot of outdoor photography. I have notice the surface to be a different color, dust is not my concern.
I do want to make sure I perserve my cameras for as long as I have them.

After really dusty motorsports shooting I use my vacuum cleaner followed by damp cloths.

Normally they don't need cleaning though, other than wiping off the nose grease from the LCD. :)

Personally I've switched from soap and schampoo to a weekly dip in Eclipse cleaning fluid.

Weekly? Whether you need it or not, I presume :)
