Re: Fuji HS50 unusable due to sticky plastic body!

My HS50 was the same, nothing to do with sun or handcream, the rubber coating just leaches out liquid after some years.

Alcohol worked for me. It is not easy... only rub the affected areas in small circles, try not to touch elsewhere. It will not happen straight away, requires several attempts, but glad to report you can get down to the plastic below and it still looks fine and just like a  new camera. So if your HS50 still works fine and you are happy with it, a little elbow grease can restore it to a worthwhile state.

Just hoping my Nikon D5600 does not go the same way.
