How much do you need to spend?

The cost of a lens cleaning kit is usually around £10 to £20, though it is possible to pay more if you buy high quality products.

You should be able to find out this information in the manufacturer’s website or from the shop you bought it from.

Do you have a specific lens type to clean?

Depending on your camera model, there will be certain types of lens that you should clean regularly. For example, you should always clean the front element of your 50mm lens.

Can I do it myself?

You can certainly do it yourself. Some camera lenses can be cleaned using a wet cloth and some need a special cleaning solution. When you purchase a lens cleaning kit, it will include instructions. It is wise to read these thoroughly before using it, especially if you are new to lens cleaning.

Is it easy to use?

Once you have read the instructions, it should be easy to use the lens cleaning kit. A few lens cleaning kits are complicated and do require a degree of technical knowledge.

How effective is it?

You will be able to see whether the lens cleaning kit works by looking at the amount of dust on your lens. If it is clear, the kit has done a good job. If the lens looks dirty, then the cleaning kit hasn’t done the job properly. This can be due to poor kit quality or the wrong cleaning solution being used.
