Canon USA has released a video explaining how to take care of your camera gear. In the video, hosted by Holly Groder of Canon's call center, Canon gives a series of recommendations for things to avoid, and things to get into the habit of doing, to keep your gear clean and fully functional.

If you mentally delete the word 'Canon' from every other sentence (and depending on which of our forums you frequent you may already be in the habit of doing this) this video contains plenty of sensible advice for caring for your gear - whatever the manufacturer. A note for those who can't get the hang of threading camera straps (Jeff Keller, I'm looking at you) - skip to 6 minutes 40 seconds - you won't regret it.
