Save your Lens

Well, this is not a lens cleaning tip or something, It is a simple way of saving your compact camera's lens system.
Well most compact camera's have a retractable lens, which extends on power up, now many of my friends have been unfortunate enough to have their power button pressed accidentally in their jeans pocket or purses, and due to no room for extension, getting their lens' mechanics damaged.

Simple solution:
Always keep your camera's mode switch at playback, instead of shooting, when you are storing it, because in that case the lens would not extend even after an accidental power up, when you want to shoot, just flip it back to shooting mode.

hope this helps.
