This is NOT How You Clean Your Camera

Oh dear…

A video is making its round on the internet of a man cleaning a 5D and a 24-105mm lens. He soaks the cameras and then brushes them and does all sorts of things that you would absolutely never do. In fact, if your camera ever gets this soaked, you need to put it in a bowl of rice and sealed from the air for at least 24 hours. But even then there may be way too much damage for it to work properly.

And the lens? It’s probably gone; and all the motors to change the aperture and autofocus are probably gonners.

Despite this, it’s hysterical that folks may take this seriously. The video how not to clean your camera is after the jump.
