Clean Your Camera With Water Hose ?
« on: February 17, 2012, 09:21:52 PM »
I am skeptical of this type of cleaning..anyone?

This might be a joke though note all the comments - I don't buy that cleaning method. Just what we need are hard water stains on the mirror for starters. Then there's the rust / corrosion factor.  Being in IT, I've opened PC's near homes on the beach and they were rusted with corrosion inside.

Is he crazy?  That 300mm f4 IS does not have a seal on the lens mount!

That's only the pre-wash treatment.
Then chuck it in the washing machine/dishwasher.
This may result in your "plastic" melting :( :( :(

One thing Olympus did right with the E-3 (came to Canon after that) was the weather sealing.

I've seen them dunked in seawater, hosed down (with a lens attached though), water poured on them from a bottle, showered and buried in snow/sleet and no problems. And if I remember correctly they even took an underwater shot with the newer E-5 by just dunking it below the surface.

Let's say that I never worried about my camera in a light rain like I do with my 7D which is supposed to be quite well sealed, but not that well. For example the card door sealing isn't convincing me too much. I have been thinking about moving up to older 1D series cameras, probably 1D MkIII and 1Ds MkII would serve my purposes well.

Even if it was distilled water and the battery was removed, I wouldn't even think about doing that.

And I have that camera, the lens, and the watch.  :)
