I rented Arri 16 mm film camera and Sony PMW-EX3 Digital Camera for my documentary shoot.

I tried cleaning the lens using the Giotti Air blower + regular lens solution and fiber cloth but it's not working perfect.

What is the best method to clean these lenses? I am looking for something around $ 50 or less?

Thanks

Number One Rule: Only use liquid cleaner as a last resort.

To clean a lens, first use an air blob blower. If the dust/dirt is still there, use a lens cloth in one motion across the lens. Most lenses have an anti-flare coating that could come off if you rub too hard.

If you have to use a liquid cleaner, be careful not to leave spots and streaks on the lens. Be careful not to rub to hard on the front of the lens.

I hope this helps.
