Hello, I want to know what is recommended to use to clean fingerprints off of a Kodak EasyShare 7530 lens. And how to go about doing it without screwing up the lens.



Thank you very much

Hi there...What I use is just a solution that can be found at any camera shop its a multi-coated filter and lens cleaner and a washable cloth by microstar "advanced micro-fibre cleaning cloth" and wont scratch. As far as cleaning the lens its best not to rub the lense but let the cloth do the work in a circular motion...was told that by some old pros , in other words dont appy pressure. You might want to get a camel hair brush as well I saved a few bux by not buying the Camera shop version but going to walmart and getting the same from the ladies makeup department.....instead of paying like 25 bucks for all this stuff I paid like 7 for everything.....hope this helps you some.:-)

Ok, I'll try that. Thanks :-)



Any other suggestions from anyone else? I'm going to try the average of all the responses.

Well I'm still doing what a few oldtimers told me...blow off the dust, fog the lens and use a CLEAN old tshirt.

Hi thinkpad,

Well, Wags way is the proper way to do it, but I usually resort to Dans way, LOL. Usually because I can't find the solution and cloth. Danged memory anyway.

oh by the way, welcome to the forum.

I recently saw these Ziess lens cloths made by the renowned Ziess lens company, atleast their name is on it. I wonder how they work. Theyre moist towlettes that come in the little packets. I saw them in WalMart
