Technique tips: Lens care kit

For field work, and especially when travelling, take along a lens care kit for maintenance or emergencies as a basic camera cares. Use a small plastic bag or pouch for the following:

• Lens tissue and lens cleaning fluid.

• Cotton tipped swabs

• Short, soft brush – one in a lipstick type case will be well protected.

• A small syringe – to blow off dust and dirt.

• A jeweler’s screwdriver – to tighten screws loosened by vibration, a common problem in air travel.

• If you have room, also take some black masking tape. It is useful for attaching odd-sized or unusual accessories; for holding up background, reflectors and the like, and for making emergency repairs.
