SOURCE: rubber grips get sticky after a time instorage. How

I had the same issue - I used a citrus cleaner, and then just water with a sponge - but be SURE you don't do two things 1) get ANY water on or near the camera's openings, and 2) don't rub too hard, as the rubber is just a coating to hard plastic below - I know this first hand, as I went too far on the top handle, thinking I was getting dirt off, when it was actually the black of the rubber!

I think the grips just do this over time... but the rest of the places where they never met human hands are just like new... so I think it's the oil in our skin that sits on that rubber for a while, and then makes it like that? - has to be related, since it's only tacky at both grips.

I want to use my OM2000 Olympus lens for my video Canon XL1, do you know Olympus has built any lens adaptor to Canon XL? Reap


Olympus did not make adapter for OM lenses to be used on Canon XL1 but, if you are looking for the lens adapter, Novoflex XL-OM Lens Mount Adapter Olympus Lens to Canon XL-1, is the lens adapter that suppose to work.
B & H has this adapter for sale.

Rubber Grip Has Developed "Sticky Spots"


The best and cheapest way I have found is to use 91% isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol...put a little on a paper towel, cloth, or cotton swab and rub the stick stuff off. I would also suggest putting on rubber gloves to keep the black stuff off your hands. Have fun.

Canon XL1


I paid the premium service but your tech knew less about the camera than I did. He didn't know the Canon XL1 at all. His directions indicated he had no idea how the camera worked.
