Totally protecting of kit against dust is never possible, but there are some simple precautions we can adopt.

• Clean your camera bag regularly.
• Blow dust away from camera & lens using Hurricane Blower ( £5)
• Clean camera & lens using separate microfibre cleaning cloths.
• Activate the built-in camera sensor cleaning function regularly, located in the camera’s menu. *
• Take care when changing lens’s. Switch off camera’s power & to void dust entering sensor during lens change by tilt camera downwards, & refit lens caps ASAP
• * Remove stubborn dust spots from sensor. Switch off camera power, remove lens , title camera downwards & gently blow dust from sensor with the Hurricane Blower.

Enjoy your 2019 Photography
