    I bought a cleaning kit from Digital Concepts. It was the only one there and it was only $5. It seems to work good though. I didn't use the liquid cleaner yet though -- is it safe to use? Has anyone here used this brand on their camera? Thanks.

    I would not use any liquid cleaning solutions on camera Lens.


    For LCDS I just use cloudy clear scotch tape put it on then peal off slowly it seems to work with no residue
    Does anyone just find the S2's AF assist beam cool?

    I mean it shoots a friggin cube at your head

    Uh, if the lens is multicoated you have no choice. You will just cause a film to be spread around the lens.
    I use it, as it was including in my camera cleaning kit, and I have no problems. Neither do thousands of others.
    Just be sure to use the right fluid.

    cleaning fluid that is designed for cleaning optics. B&H sells some.
    Mine is specifically for multi-coated optics.
