5 Tips That Could Double The Life Of Your Camera AND Keep It Shooting Like Brand New

Shooting Like New

#5 Use A CLEAN Camera Bag And/Or Case

While using a camera bag or case may seem like a no-brainer (which is why it’s the last tip on the list) making sure it stays clean is something I have been guilty of not doing on many occasions.

After a shoot instead of just throwing it in the corner make sure you clean it out. Any dust or debsris that has made it’s way into your bag will find it’s way into your camera if you don’t remove it.

How do you choose a good bag or case?

Everyone may not agree with me but I think a good camera bag/case is like a tripod. It doesn’t make sense to me to skimp on something that’s protecting such a large investment like your camera gear.

Pelican Cases are an extremely popular choice
Here is the Pelican 1510-000-110 Carry On Case with Pick ‘N’ Puck Foam (Black) on Amazon. This case has a 5 star rating out of over 200 reviews.


Actually these tips are very good! I shoot professionally for a living and I do all these steps anyway, but it really does make a difference. You get back what you put in, simple!

I’m with Adrian Mann on this. Once I see that the link is no more than a series of advert pages, I close the tab. It’s all about advertising revenue, not about advice at all.

They say that this will double the life of your camera………not possible! These digital cameras all have a lifespan based on the number of shutter actuations. So I was told by Don’s Photo.

Doesn’t the lens make contact with the camera? So why don’t you clean the contact point on the camera! HMMMM

Keep your camera DRY? Who would of thought? I always keep mine submerged in a bucket of water to keep the dust out.
