any special electrical cleaner, something like wd40 etc will do.

sorry, you don't want to use wd40 near any camera!

if you need to clean oxide from electrical contacts, there's only 1 thing I recommend: deoxit d5 (spray can). spray some onto a cotton tip and apply that tiny bit to the battery contacts. wipe clean (you want ZERO fluid getting inside the cam).

deoxit is expensive and in a 'large' 5ml can but its great stuff for cleaning scratchy pots, older wafer switches and contacts.

wd40 is good for some things, but not in this app!
