How to sanitize your Panasonic product.

LUMIX Cameras

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, we would strongly advise against sharing cameras and lenses. While the CDC suggests using alcohol-based wipes to clean electronics, we would recommend avoiding applying chemicals to your camera equipment as they could damage the finish.

The CDC advises that COVID-19 can live on hard surfaces like glass for up to 5 days, so if you absolutely must pass equipment from one person to another, clean as you normally would, place your equipment in a secure location, then wait the allotted time before transporting the equipment.

Before and during transport, follow all standard safety procedures including handwashing, using a mask and gloves, and maintaining a safe social distance from others. In response to the global pandemic, Panasonic is carefully testing sanitizing solutions and will provide information as soon as a safe option is confirmed.

The CDC recommends using alcohol-based wipes containing at least 70% alcohol and drying the surface thoroughly.

  1. Unplug all external power sources and cables.
  2. Gently and carefully wipe the hard, nonporous surface of the item and ensure moisture does not get into any openings.
  3. It is important to follow the contact time found on the label.
    • It may be necessary to use more than one wipe to keep the surface wet for the recommended contact time.
    • Do not use aerosol sprays, bleach or abrasive cleaners.
    • Avoid excessive wiping and submerging in cleanser to avoid damage.
    • Never spray cleaner directly on an item.
