How to Clean Internal Dust From a Nikon 70-300 VR

Sometimes when you take a picture with a digital camera you may see some spots on the actual image when you look at it. These spots can just be what is called “digital noise,” which is just color speckles on the image that can be mistaken for dust. However, if there is actually dust inside your Nikon 70-300 VR lens then you will need to clean that internal dust out so that you can get back to taking great pictures with it.

Look through the lens with a flashlight to verify that there is internal dust in the Nikon 70-300 VR. If you do not see any dust then you do not need to clean the internal part of the lens.
