A serving of Spudz: We all know by now that a microfiber cloth is the best thing for cleaning smudgy camera lenses (or LCD screens, or viewfinder eyepieces, or binoculars, or eyeglasses). The problem is our tendency to keep these cloths precisely in the wrong place -- e.g., in the sunglasses case in the glove compartment when we're in the woods shooting. A clever answer comes from Alpine Innovations: Spudz microfiber cloths, permanently attached to their own tiny pouches. They're so small and light that you can get a bunch and keep them attached to camera straps, belt loops, even keychains. Senior Editor Pete Kolonia says they stay clean longer than other microfiber cloths, and that's a pretty good recommendation coming from Ol' Greasy Thumb himself. The Standard Spudz, 6x6 inches, is available for about $5 at many photo retailers. The XL Spudz, 10x10 inches, comes in a variety of colors ($10, street) and 18 percent neutral gray ($14, street).
