Day 106: Skagway part 7

How to clean…

…your lenses and digital cameras. From Nikon and Lifehacker, a video on how to clean your lenses.  So-so english subtitles; pretty good jazz background music! *** A tutorial on how to clean your digital camera, including the sensor, of the dreaded sensor dust.  It probably voids any warranty you have left on your camera, but […]
