Do’s and Don’ts of Digital Video Camera Care

  1. 1. Do’s and Don’ts of Digital Video Camera Care
  2. 2. Do. . . • Regularly clean the camera. • Check the LCD and clean it whenever necessary. Smudges and fingerprints make viewing an image on the screen much more difficult. • Handle all moving parts of the camera with care. Never force hinges, buttons or dials if they seem stuck.
  3. 3. Do. . . • Turn off the camera before removing or disconnecting the power source or a cable, or removing the battery or memory card. • Keep your camera dry and free from condensation.
  4. 4. Do. . . • Store your camera correctly if it isn’t going to be used for a long time. Keep it in a cool, dry place with packets of silica gel to prevent condensation. Remove the batteries too.
  5. 5. Don’t. . . • Subject your camera to knocks, vibration, magnetic fields, smoke, water, steam, sand or chemicals. • Apply lens cleaning fluid directly to the lens. If fluid must be used, place a few drops on the camera cleaning cloth. Microfiber cloths are highly recommended.
  6. 6. Don’t. . . • Store or use it in humid, dusty or dirty places. • Subject it to extreme hot or cold temperatures. • Place it in direct sunlight for prolonged times or in a car when it is hot. Pointing the camera lens towards strong sunlight for a prolonged time can ruin the sensor…as well as your eyes.
  7. 7. Don’t. . . • Scratch the camera with hard or sharp objects. Watch when you place a camera unprotected in your pocket. Keys and loose coins can damage camera and LCD surfaces. • Drop it in water. In all likelihood, it will be damaged beyond repair particularly if it is salt walter.
  8. 8. Don’t. . . • Use canned air. Most consumer digital cameras are not air-tight. Canned air may blow dust into the inside of the lens. Use a microfiber cloth and lens pen instead.
