S90 Lens Cleaning
Hi. Lately went on a hike in Yosemite and there was quite a bit of mist from the waterfalls. Anyways, my lens got a little wet and now has some spots. What is the best way to clean this streak free without damaging the lens?
i'm not sure what everyone else is doing but heres what i do: i first always use a rocket blower to get out the big rocks & dead birds.- then a drop of lens cleaning fluid on a lens tissue or micro fiber cloth and wipe in small circles fairly softly & quickly as you don't want the lens to retract while your doing this. on my dslr there's a way to lock the camera for cleaning but i don't know of this feature in a p&s camera. a lighted magnifying glass is very handy too.
You can just turn it on and then remove the battery.

I'd like to revive this short threat about the best way to clean the lens of the S90.
I have a small, what appears to be, waterspot that won't go away with the "air poofer" or the use of a lens pen (from my astronomy days).
What is the recommended way to deal with this?
ps: of course another issue is how to make sure the lens does not retract while you are trying to clean it - but as suggested removing the battery might do the trick.
the battery removal trick works great i found out. for a stubborn water spot i would go to the local camera store and get some lens cleaning fluid - then use only lens tissue or micro cloth to gently rub in small circles. this is all after using the air blaster of coarse.
