How to clean the sand from your camera?

When people go to beach, sometimes they will fall their cameras into the sand, hence the sand will go into their camera. When your camera is inundated with tiny grains of sand, they can scratch the lens, penetrate the case, ruin the internal electronics, and clog buttons and dials.

  • If you're going to the beach, always take a camera bag or backpack with you, something that you can keep the camera in until you're ready to use it.
  • When attempting to clean small particles of sand from the camera lens, a small, soft brush is the best method of removing the sand. Hold the camera so the lens is facing the ground. Brush the lens from the middle toward the edges. Then use the brush in a circular motion around the edges of the lens, gently, to dislodge any particles of sand.
  • The small, soft brush also will work well to remove particles of sand from the seams of the camera body, from around buttons, and from around the LCD. A microfiber cloth works well, too. If you don't have a brush available, you can gently blow on the areas where you see the sand.
  • As a general rule, do not use canned air to blow sand away from any part of your camera. The force behind canned air is very strong, and it actually could blow the sand particles inside the camera body, if the seals are not as tight as they should be. The canned air also could blow the particles across the lens, scratching it. Avoid canned air when you have sand on your camera.
