I have the same problem with my Nikon N65 film SLR and I bought a vintage Super 8 movie camera where the rubber had turned to the consistency of gum on a side-walk on a hot summer day. On the a camera I carefully rubbed on a coat of talcum (which probably isn't the best thing to use on a camera but I was careful and it isn't something I do every day). I then took a small square I cut from an old terry towel and used friction and elbow grease to rub off the top layer of the rubber. I then took another square of the towel and dipped it in hot soapy water, squeezed out the excess and washed all that remained. I then took a small water-colour brushed (after I dried the surface of course), and dusted the surface of the rubber with talcum and let it sit overnight. This seemed to stop the derioration and clear off what had built up. The next day I took a very dry damp towell (if that makes sense) and wiped off the surface. It pretty much took care of that problem. That was the Nikon, it was only in the beginning stages, the Super 8 camera which had apparently hadn't been out of the case in 20 years. The Super 8 was so bad that I don't even know what had deteriorated, probably a rubber eye piece, that one was time consuming but basically I put the powder on carefully and just wiped big clumps off the metal eye piece. The powder just served to make it easy to clean up and kept it from turning into a 3 stooges farce with one thing sticking to the other and so on. Well, I hope this helps, I don't know why it works, maybe there's a chemist out there that can explain it to me. Good luck!!
