Zinc reported on 60d yet?
« on: August 19, 2012, 11:52:20 PM »
I noticed a white buildup on the grip of my 60D today. It's not bothering my skin or anything, but I figured I would share. Here is a cell phone capture of the buildup.

I haven't heard about anything for the 60d. Is there much on google?
I know my 7d gets the odd white buildup on the grips but that's just where my hands get really hot during long shoots and I sweat into the grips.
Gross or what?

The problem with 60Ds seems more to do with the adhesive coming undone and the grip coming off. It's happening on mine and it's pretty irritating.

Place the lotion in the basket. :o  No white stuff on my 60D grip or adhesive problems so far.

I noticed it after I got home from taking some photos of my daughter and niece at a local park. The weather turned for the worse and we got rained out, so I had water on the camera as well as my hand.
