Troubleshooting reel in camera lens
Shooting photos on the beach can be a delightful activity for digital camera owners, whether they are beginners or advanced photographers. You can shoot some really cool photos on the beach with vibrant colors and interesting textures, as long as you can avoid problems with the sand in the camera lens and other parts of the camera.
After all, the beach can be a dangerous environment even for your digital camera. Weeping sand, damp conditions, and deep water can do incredible damage to your camera. When you are on the beach, especially passing through the sand, it is important to protect your camera from the elements. When your camera is stuck in small grains of sand, it can pull the lens, penetrate the case, destroy internal electronics, and contaminate buttons and dials. These camera tips and tricks should help you with clear sand from the camera.
Take A Bag
If you are going to the beach, always carry a camera bag or backpack with you, something you can keep in this camera until you are ready to use it. For example, the bag will provide some protection from scattering from the sand. You may want to invest in a waterproof bag, which will protect the body from the water spray from the camera or the body from unusual sprays. Just remove the bag from the bag to shoot the picture. Consider using a waterproof camera around the beach, which will protect both the water and the elements.
Plastic is your friend
If you don’t have a waterproof bag available, use a plastic bag that can be sealed, such as a “zip-lock” bag, to store your camera. By sealing this bag whenever you are not using the camera, it will be protected from sand and damp conditions. Replacing the plastic bag inside a camera bag will provide dual protection.
A massive camera, or one that is cheaply made, may not strengthen the hardness of the camera body and the buttons around it, as it should. Allows potentially small sand particles to enter the camera body. Plastic bags can help with this problem.
Keep The Liquid Away
Avoid keeping other sources of liquid inside the same bag as the camera. For example, do not put sunscreen or a bottle of water inside the bag with the camera, as the bottles can leak. If you must carry everything in a bag, seal everything in your plastic bag for extra protection.
Find A Soft Brush
When trying to clean small particles of sand from the camera lens, a small, soft brush is the best way to remove sand. Hold the camera so that the lens faces the ground. Brush from the middle of the lens by the edges. Then use the brush in a circular motion around the edges of the lens, gently to remove any particles from the range. Using gentle brush movement is the key to avoiding scratches on the lens.
The small, soft brush will work well to remove sand particles from around the camera body, buttons, and around the LCD. Microfiber cloth also works well. If you don’t have a brush available, you can fly slowly over areas where you see sand.
As a general rule, do not use canned air to remove sand from any part of your camera. The force behind the cane air is very strong, and it can actually blow sand particles inside the body of the camera, as long as the cells are not tight. Canned air can also fly particles across the laces, scratching them. Avoid canned air when there is sand on your camera.
Use a tripod
Finally, as shown in the picture above, one of the best ways to make sure your camera doesn’t end up with any sand is to put a tripod in your beach photography session. To use. Just make sure, that the tripod is placed on the strong area so it will not end unintentionally.
