When you get home blast your camera with one of those cans of compressed
air. I blast any lens I put on my camera or into my bag or anything going or
coming anywhere. But I don?t take a small can of compressed air with me if I
was more organized I perhaps would. You don?t want to blast your shutter
curtain or a few other things though so ask around first. Not all the blast
cans put a hole in the ozone layer. Most don?t now I think.
