    Pollen & Changing Lenses Outdoors

    Pollen & Changing Lenses Outdoors
    It's that time of the year again. Please try to change your lenses in a clean environment, if possible. Pollen can easily get on sensors creating dust spots. Sometimes, I'll retreat to the car with windows up, and change them there. If you do get dust spots on your sensor, try this wet cleaning method for cleaning the sensor. Here it is.

    If the lens is not too large you could always try doing it in an old film "changing bag"
