This simple, easy to follow guide will help you to keep your GoPro in like-new condition so you can continue capturing your most incredible moments. Taking proper care of your GoPro will extend the life of your camera and the quality of the videos you shoot! While some steps are predictable, there are some great tips in this guide. Step 1) After every GoPro worthy excursion, your camera will undoubtedly be wet, dirty, sandy etc. The first step is to simply remove the camera from its case taking care to avoid considerable pieces of dirt and sand. These can cause damage to the lens and will basically ruin your GoPro. Step 2) Take the casing you have just removed and rinse it thoroughly beneath a regular tap. Try to avoid hard water or salt water if possible as these will leave residue on the casing. Be sure to get all the grit and sand out of the corners. Step 3) Now a little trick. To avoid waiting for the case to dry, or the chance of scratching the lens with rag (especially if there is sand residue) grab a hair blow dryer. After gently shaking the case to get most of the water out, begin to dry the case with the blower taking care not to heat up the case too much. To do this, set the blower to the lowest heat setting and keep a reasonable distance between the dryer and the case. Step 4) Once the case is reasonably dry, take a lens wiping cloth or a computer screen cloth to wipe off the camera lens. Be sure there is no sand or grit on the lens or the cloth as this will probably scratch the lens. The final step here is to spray a light coat of Rain-X (the car windshield spray) to the lens and the outside of the case taking care not to spray the inside. Wipe clean and dry with your screen/lens cloth. Why the Rain-X you ask? This light coating serves two main purposes:


1. If you use the camera underwater or in the rain, water will not bubble up in front of the lens. It will just run down the case so there aren't water bubbles in your video. 2. It will make any dirt, grit or sand very easy to clean off after your next adventure! Step 5) Moving on to the camera itself, use a moist, delicate lint-free rag or cloth to wipe down everything except the lens. For the lens, use your lens cloth/computer screen cloth to carefully wipe off the lens. The correct technique for doing so is to start in the middle of the lens, and wipe in small circles slowly expanding from the center until you've covered the whole lens. If necessary, moisten the cloth with a zoom lens cleaning solution before wiping. Step 6) On to where you store your camera. Be sure to have a strong, durable and preferably waterproof case to store your GoPro and accessories. This is far superior to leaving your gear in a pile or throwing it in bag because this will avoid scratching the lens, losing any accessories or accidental smashing or damaging of your equipment. Step 7) The final step is to ensure that the interior of your storage case is clean. This step is often overlooked. Perhaps you left the case open outside for a period of time on a previous adventure and dust or grit has settled into your case. Firstly, tip it upside down to get any boulder sized pieces out, then use either a handheld "mini" vacuum or your trusty blow drier to remove the finer particles. I hope this guide helps you increase the lifespan and use of your GoPro. Now you can be a little more worry free knowing that your equipment is well cared for! After all, the whole point of the GoPro is to capture your most incredible moments without having to worry about ruining your camera. So go adventure!

This guide will help you increase the lifespan and use of your GoPro. Now you can be a little more worry free knowing that your equipment is well cared for! The case that we recommend you use for your GoPro is a Pelican Gopro Carrying Case.
