sticky as in when you touch the camera, or sticky as in the components of the camera are getting stuck?

If company's now know about this why do they still use the process of coating hardware products with it. Cameras such as Canon and Nikon make expensive high end products and to have this coating breaking down either the camera or the lense ruins the product. As an e.g. I have a mobile phone from 1993 and the keypad on that too has finaly gone sticky. I can't clean it as the numbers are transfers put directly on to the coating which will ruin the keypad if cleaned. Concidering the age I'm supprised it had not broke down before now. Most modern products do farley quickly.

Have you handled the camera after using DEET bug spray? This is a known culprit for "melting" the material on some plastic-based camera bodies. Ask me how I figured it out: On assignment photographing bird tagging in the woods and spray myself with DEET first. I posted this on the internet as much as possible as a warning for other photographers.

Soluzione Prescelta

for the body of the camera you can use Edwal film cleaning solution or 91% Edwal film cleaning solution or my personal favorite, a 90+percent isopropyl solution (your local pharmacist would be of great help if you can't find it). Take a cloth and dip it in the solution and wring it out so that it is almost dry and wipe the body off. You can also use an old, soft toothbrush or small model brush dipped in the solution. Isopropyl alcohol works great to clean off cameras; any excess moisture that gets in the camera will evaporate quickly, and the alcohol works well to remove grime, grease, oil, etc. Hope this helps, good luck and may your camera soon sparkle again.

Thank you oldturkey03 for the advice! It worked real fine on my Nikon bodies. :-)

Isopropyl alcohol worked a treat. I then buffed the grips with a small amount of Armorall on a cloth for an as new look and feel. Thanks.

Natrual soft rubber will deagrade and return to its "Non-Vulcanised state". It is actually slowly "un vulcanising". Molecule cross links breaking back apart that were joined in the rubber vulcanising process, and becoming liquid in state. Handling or sitting, you can not stop natural soft rubber from "going back home".

The top surface is effected 1st which then deepens and deepens until you could wipe the entire rubber off with cloth after 25 years. More rigid high vulcaising rubber will powderise back to dust. (like 50 year old tyres)

Using alchohol will merely disolve and strip the top liquid rubber layer off, back to the "still rigid" rubber underlayer. You'll need to do it again in a few years.

Following the advices here, I rubbed my old F80 and D70 bodies with pure Isopropyl alcohol (99.8%) and a lint free cloth, and both recovered the original grip and look. It's a job that one has to do with plenty of time and detail to get a perfect finish, but it's worth the effort. I have a AF-S DX 18-70mm zoom that needs the same treatment on the focus grip. Just be careful to do it in a well vented room (Isopropyl alcohol is harmful if breathed). Thanks a lot for your help!

could you use the isopropyl alcohol outside? As you said a well vented room.

I have a Nikon D70s with a very sticky body. I rubbed 91% Isopropyl Alcohol on the entire body about 6 times which finally eliminated the stickiness but it dulled the finish. I then used several ArmorAll clean wipes to coat the finish and restore the sheen. I may have to do it every few years but it's well worth the effort.

Same problem with D70. The secret with the isopropyl is a gentle wipe. Don't try to rub it dry as I did the first time. Allow each cleaning session to become well and truly dry so that the 'plastic/rubber' becomes firm again. As with Ken above, patience is required . 4 or 5 'sessions' and it's fine now.

Alcohol just makes it stickier and then the black comes off on your hands...any other suggestions?

You want it to go into a [preferably white] lint-free lens wipe. If it is going into your hands it is probably not low moisture alcohol or Isopropyl. Ask pharmacist for "absolute". Mine looked more yellow than black - you must be pulling out the carbon black which is not good.

I dried it up with baby powder. Worked it into the areas most gummy by hand and used a compressed air can to blow off excess. Gently wiped area with microfiber towel and the tacky is gone...for now. I know it's a chemical break down and will continue but for now at least it's usable...

Coat it over with a thin film of lacquer or transparent nail polish. It will stabilize the rubber.

You may have experienced Plastic, that has become Sticky?

Some time ago, there was an article suggesting that you could use Acetone?

But was not sure of its use, on all Plastic types, then came across This Article:-

https://heartworkorg.com/2017/01/08/stic...


and it Does work; Found that you need to rub a Slurry Mix over the surface, then lightly

wipe off, with a wet, (Soft, 3M type) Pan Scourer.

I then wiped the surface with some Washing Up Liquid, wiped with a Damp cloth, then Dried.

I have both a Nikon N80 and D80. The N80 body is sticky like all the notes I’ve been reading. I used some baby powder which stopped the stickiness but it does look very presentable. Obviously the N80 isn’t worth much anyway so I’m not losing any sleep over this odd development. The D80 body doesn’t have a problem - so far.

It is irresponsible for Nikon to sell products with this kind of problem. When I called them about my Coolpix S8100, I was told that they don't know abut the problem. And since the camera is out of warranty nothing they would do!!! Shame on you Nikon.

If the sticky dust is not removed with a brush, you can use a cotton swab. To clean hard-to-reach spots, a rubber bulb is often effective.

Hi its a problem often with modern cameras. What always works for me is : soft cloth and dab all over…dont rub, you may want to do it twice .. with Isocol, its a rubbing alcohol antiseptic available from the chemist.

Allow this to set dry a few hours of the next day. Then use a liquid car wax to seal it. and there you go better than new .. Make sure the liquid wax is NOT one that dries white,…….. that is a big nuisance.

In France we have alcool ménager (household alcohol) that is used as a general purpose cleaner/degreaser.

Worked perfectly on the rubber parts of an old Microsoft webcam. Just wiped it with a few drops on a paper kitchen towel. The stickiness was only superficial and there was hard rubber underneath. My guess is that any alcohol would do - gin, vodka, anything you have to hand.

I am pretty sure that you can use a cotton swab, if the sticky dust is not removed with a brush and of course if you need to clean hard-to-reach spots, a rubber bulb is pretty effective.
