    Dear Friends,
    In my camera kit I own the following things:
    1. One film camera - Nikon 2020
    2. One 28-200 mm Sigma Lens
    3. One Canon PowerShot S5IS.
    4. One Canon 450D
    5. One Canon EF-S 18-55mm kit lens.

    Next week I am going for a tour of 17 days. I want to keep a cleaning kit with me. Please tell me what all things I have to keep in my cleaning kit.

    I got this thing called a Lenspen to keep my lens clean, and it does a great job. You can check it out at lenspen.com

    You're going to want something to clean the lenses with, something like this would be good. Less than $20, shipped.

    You may also want a sensor cleaning kit, but you probably won't really need that for a 17 day trip. Still good to have though.

    You need a blower brush (Hakuba is good)(use first, blow then brush), good lens tissue paper (not facial tissue) (Hakuba or Tiffen)and your breath (use 3rd).

    DON'T REPEAT DON'T EVER squirt liquid directly on your lens glass.

    Clean both ends of the lens and don't forget the camera mirror, focusing screen and viewfinder.
