Follow on video to prevent camera lens fungus featuring issues not dealt with in the first video and issues that were but from a different perspective • Camera bags are not suitable for storing lenses in • As well as being made from nylon instead of cotton they should have a good raincover that should be used. The bag featured in the original video did not have a raincover. • Camera bags should be dried thoroughly after use and kept clean, having spare bags are always useful . • Use silica gels in the camera bags Cleaning lenses • Using a lens pen and blower is best practice, it also avoids the lens getting wet . Never blow dust off with your mouth as this will introduce moisture on the lens and it is not as strong as a good as the blower Room drying lens • Always check the lens after it has been used for condensation and leave in a bright place but not directly into the sunlight, at right angles to the sun until it has thoroughly been dried. • When the lens is dried it should be stored with the lens caps on. Check the condition of lenses in storage regularly • If lenses are stored check them at least once a week for damp and room dry them. Also check the that the silica gels are in good condition and recharge or replace if they have changed colour Condensation • This is a major cause of fungus in tropical countries it makes it very difficult to avoid cameras getting infected with fungus . In temperature countries using a camera in the kitchen is the biggest risk as is bringing it from a cold part of a house to a warm part of the house or vice versa. You must allow time for it to acclimatise in the beg before use. Purchasing second hand lenses • The other is that unscrupulous people will try to sell infected lenses rather than repair them. When examining a lens hold it up to a strong light source such as a light never hold it up to the sun as it can damage your eyes. When held up to a strong light source you should be able to spot fungus.
