I own a C310(D540) Oly. I accidentally touched the lens at one time, and now Im worrying if it could have bad effects on the pictures I will take afterwards. The lens of this aim-and-shoot camera seems to be multicoated. My question is, "is it necessary to clean the lens of aim-and-shoot digicams?" If so, I would like to hear recommendations from anybody as to how to safely clean the lens...

Thanks in advance...:O

The "proper" way is to use lens cleaning tissues, available at most photo stores. Don't tell anyone but I have cleaned fingerprints off of hundreds of cameras using the clean tail of my t-shirt. Inspect lens first for "hard" debris like sand grains or dirt, if it's there then don't rub the lens with anything except for proper lens tissue and cleaning solution.

Whatever you use, rub in circular motion and do it as gently as possible to avoid scratching. If your camera can be fitted with a filter then get a clear or UV filter and leave it on to protect the expensive lens - filters are cheap compared to the cost of replacement lenses and service charges.
