    Clearly, the message is: Wash your hands with a Canon. It does not dry your hands like soap can.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Check the manual that came with your camera, it varies depending on model.

    The manual say's I can use either, however if I want brighter images to use the same headlight fluid that goes in my car on the lens.

    Jeez, what a lousy ending.

    I really thought he was going to mount the lens and take a photo.

    What a let-down !!!!

    None of this fancy hand washing - I just put mine in with the sheets: full cotton wash at 60°C:

    I'ld say: use the blackwash - that would create fantastic B/W shots.

    A dash of red food colouring is needed if you want IR photography.

    Man... I may have to invest in a Canon if it's that easy to clean these guys!

    I do agree with Cage though, I think if he attached it after it drying it and then showing us the amazingly new clean images, would have been an epic ending.
