If you haven't cleaned your DSLR lens before, the Nikon Help Hotline shows us — in step by step video form — how it's done.
While you certainly don't want to clean your lens every day or anything (only clean it if it looks like it needs a cleaning), any photographer should know how to properly clean the lens for quality pictures. You'll need a few things before you start, but you probably already have some of it lying around, like rubbing alcohol and microfibre cloths. Check out the video above to see a walkthrough of the process, and if you've got any of your own tried and true lens cleaning tips, share them with us in the comments.
