Question about Cameras
Hello. Sadly, the answer is no. You must have the lens repaired by a tech. If the fungus is on the front lens element, trying to remove the lens for cleaning will invite disaster in short order. There are hidden set-screws, grease, precise distances, and sometimes timing positions involved. If the fungus is severe enough, the actual glass element will have to be replaced because fungus can etch itself into the surface! The key to preventing fungus is to NOT store the camera/lenses in a cool, dark, place like a closet or drawer. If you do need to store the system for a longer period, remove all batteries, use a desiccant(the little packet that says DO NOT EAT) which absorbs moisture, and then close up everything in a sealed bag. This keeps any extra moisture from entering the sealed environment of the bag while the desiccant keeps the interior extremely dry.---Hope this helps!---Rick
