Keep your camera safe in summer

Memorial Day weekend has come and gone! When you are out and about this summer capturing all of your summer fun, remember these 3 things to keep your camera safe in summer! No matter what kinds of camera you have, you still need it to work!

 

1. The sand! - Dah!  This one may seem obvious. Whenever I have my camera on the beach, I make sure it never mixes with the sand. When we are just enjoying our afternoon at the beach, I do not constantly have it in use. And when not in use, I have it go back into an extra large ziploc bag. And I keep it in a bag that my kids are not going to have access to. If your camera is in the bag, it's the easiest and the likeliest that sand could get inside when your kids or spouse reach in to find a snack or the sunscreen and still have sand on their hands. Actually, more often than not, I just take my camera back to wherever we are staying if it is close by so I don't have to worry about it.

 

2. That brings me to my next point - the heat. I take my camera back to where we are staying so that it stays cool. Never leaver your camera in the car. I am sure the heat inside the car goes above the temperature rating for your camera. This is true for both temperature extremes. 

 

3. Keep your hands clean. Not just clean of sand. The oils and residue from sunscreen and other products can also reek havoc on your camera if it get's inside. And one of the easiest places to get inside is around the shutter button. I always make sure my hands are clean and dry before I handle my camera  but especially at the beach and during times of summer fun! I keep some baby wipes and a lint free towel in my beach bag or pool bag to make sure this can happen!
