I just put my most recent acquisitions in a sealed bag with three Kodak Aero Ektar* lenses and a 50mm Takumar. Everything should be fine after a few days.

* Yes, the famously radioactive ones. They average about 1.3 microsievert / hour radiation level @ 30cm.
I always thought it was the high concentration of early Takumars that spawned Godzilla...

Do you think it is any coincidence Godzilla first appeared the same year as the Asahiflex IIb?

All this worry about camera gear but do you disinfect your groceries?
Or your mail? No telling how many people have touched it.

How long can COVID-19 live on a surface?

COVID-19 lives on surfaces for various lengths of time, a study has found.
According to a new study from National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, UCLA and Princeton University scientists, the virus is detectable:
Aerosols: up to 3 hours
Copper: up to 4 hours
Cardboard: up to 24 hours
Plastic and stainless steel: up to 2-3 days

The study I saw with the same sorts of numbers (so maybe the same study) evaluated those results in a hospital-like environment.

So indoors, air-conditioned, controlled humidity, and no strong UV light source or weather...

I'm not sure what that would mean here, however, but I would expect different times for things outside, for example...

Actually, I've been wiping groceries down with a disinfectant wipe and then leaving them in a separate area for a few days.

My KS-2 actually was being repaired right before things started getting crazy. When I picked it up I had him put it in a ziploc bag and when I got home I left the camera outside in the sun and cleaned it with alcohol wipes.

Oddly enough, I'm not at all a germaphobe in normal times.
