Exclamation A great little guide to cleaning your DSLR.

No need of a blower or Lens Pen.
Done properly you can say bye bye to dust moats etc !

I'm going to try this on my Nikon D3 and my AF-S 17-35 F2.8 could probably benefit from it, thanks for posting.
Going to try CLR Clear to see if it works.

That's the method I use too. The only difference for me is, I get one of those green kitchen scourers and really get all that gunk off the mirror and lens!

Yeah, I liked the rinse cycle and how he really got in there on the mirror and insides with his finger.

I tried that but the dishwasher detergent has an adverse effect on the rubber grip on the outside for the D3 camera ........

Cleaning dslr

It is for real.
Richard Hammond, on TV, demonstrated how any electronic device can be water proofed by applying a coating that is 1/000 thinner than a human hair.
He dropped a mobile phone into a toilet bowl and then asked a TV crew to make a call,
and the phone rang. It is common for people to drop their mobiles into the toilets and swimming pools and so on. I was however not aware about any glass surfaces.
So there
