Long term storage - Should the lens be detached ?
Nov 20, 2010

Many of us have more than one cameras, and some older film cameras too. What is the best way to store cameras which have not been used? I know that we need to take the batteries out. However, should the lens be detached from the camera and put the cap on the body? Can attaching the lens weaken some kind of spring (if any) in the camera's body mount? If this is the case, would putting a plastic cap also have similar effect?
Advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
