The Worst, Most Excruciating Mistake You Can Make While Cleaning Your Camera

I have to say my heart dropped when I saw what this guy was about to do…

He’s demonstrating the cleaning of a Canon 5D Mark II with a 24-105 f4L lens. We here at Modern Lens would like to go on record as stating we do not support this cleaning method. Beware ha ha Ha ha ha!!!


We have another video for you, with less-destructive tips on how to clean your camera sensor and what tools to use to get it done quickly and easily.

This has got to be a joke… doesn’t it? I accidentally destroyed a Sigma 400mm APO Macro lens simply by immersing it in water while kayaking! I bet the creator of this video has got to be a salesman for Canon, trying to make a few extra bucks from the ruined equipment people will experience if they try this stupidity!

That’s what I thought too, but then I checked the law and it is perfectly legal.
If you’re going to ruin a camera, think about donating it to a good cause like to a student.

THIS IS A JOKE. Actually, and really it is. The camera must have been ruined to begin with because NOBODY would EVER do this. Ever. Follow it to youtube an you will see the comment by the creator of the video that says I hope you all realize this is a joke.
