Dave's Favorites: Clean Your Lens With Lenspen
Keeping your digital camera's lens clean is tricky. You don't want to ignore it, since dust and dirt can mar your images and even scratch the glass, ruining the optics. But improperly cleaning the lens with traditional cleaning paper or cloth can do pretty much the same thing anyway. A better solution? A gadget called the Lenspen.
The Lenspen looks like a marker but applies a safe cleaning compound through the soft brush-like tip. Just move it around the surface of the lens to remove fingerprints and smudges and eliminate dust particles.
The small gadget fits in a pocket or slips into any camera bag. After trying it, I've decided to use the Lenspen exclusively on my digital cameras. You can find it at the Lenspen site for $17.
