Most camera gear is built with longevity and strenuous activity in mind, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take the best possible care of your gear. To that end, Canon’s service and support team recently put out this video showing the best practices for making sure that you properly and thoroughly clean and check your gear so it can keep working for as long as possible.
Basic in almost every regard, the tutorial runs through the methods you should use when auditing the quality of your gear and cleaning it. The eight minute video is a bit monotonous at times, but it’s a great clip for photography newbies, or anyone looking to for a refresher on how to best take care of those expensive light-tight boxes and tubes full of glass we like to carry around.
