I purchased an F100FD a few weeks ago and today I noticed a few specs of dust inside the lens, so I blow into the lens to see if I could just blow the dust out. After I blow into the lens it fogged up and left some spots now visible in my photos, now how do I clean the lens now? I feel like I just broke my new camera!
You would think that these lens are a sealed unit, why would anybody not seal a lens? I can build computers, put together airplanes from sticks of balsa wood and fly them. Since its under warranty I will let the pro's do it, "I will never blow anything with my bad breath or compressed air again". Any other things that I should never do with a digital camera, I just feel stupid right now. This is my first camera since I can remember.
The life expectancy of new digital camera is about 5 to 7 years depending on usage and handling. anything less are the cameras that's barely pass quality control
Things I do for my Cameras: I use Ziplocs Bag when traveling especially at cold and humid places, or even just storing it away, I also use moisture absorbent (I use one from the vitamins bottles). Always bring clean dry cloth and at least 2 Q-tips or cotton swabs.
