Not specific to this camera, but I always recommend bringing a small towel with you to put in your pocket. It's easy to remember things like not changing lenses on the beach (go back to the car or indoors) and not putting the camera on the ground/sand. However, if you sit or lay down to get a shot and use your hands to get back up, those sandy hands now have nowhere to go but your camera, negating all of the care you've taken. A little towel to brush off the hands is priceless. After the beach, a thorough brushing with a little brush (LensPen or the like) and THEN some work with a blower and your camera is as good as new.
