If you have a good camera, it's important to store it properly. Read on to know how.
1 Keep it balmy: If you’re keeping your camera away for a long time, make sure you store it in a place where the temperature doesn’t fluctuate much. Extreme heat can damage the camera case over time, while extreme cold can damage the camera’s LCD.
2 Keep it dry: Storing the camera in a humid place can cause liquid build up inside the lens. So avoid storing it in any damp places. Internal electronics of the camera can also be damaged by humid conditions.
3 Avoid sunlight: Don’t let your camera be hit by direct sunlight. The heat generated by the sun can damage the camera’s case over time.
4 Dismantle it: Always make it a point to take out the batteries and memory card when storing the camera for long.
5 Keep other electronics away: When storing the camera, keep it away from other electronic gadgets as they generate a magnetic field which can damage the camera’s LCD screen.
