    I tried the Fabreeze and now it smells much worse - all fake flowery - I guess I will just have to take up smoking.

    Was there a case?

    I had a smokey camera, I removed the case and febreze'd the case. Kept the camera out and used it every day after a month of pain the smell subsided. Still faaaaaaaintly there though....

    Hi, Frank.

    I used to smoke pipes. After I quit, I realized the back of every camera I had (along with my apartment, car, all my clothes...) smelled like pipe tobacco smoke. In time, the smell goes away. Like the desire to smoke.

    Leave the camera in the open to air out.

    I usually wipe down any camera that i get used with 99% isopropyl alcohol (maybe not to good for the leather) and then go over any leather with shoe polish. Usually that works pretty well. If not then I leave it outside for a while. That usually get rid of the smell for me.

    Just leave the thing next to the litterbox - in a few days the smoke smell will be history.

    Frank, just pee on the damn thing... then I'll bet it won't smell like cigar smoke anymore. ;>)

    You're welcome...

    Hi Dennis.

    I got sick of smelling FaBreeze and just peeled the vulcanite off. The Camera Leather order should be here anyday now.

    Go ahead and take up smoking! Between the photo supply store, the place where I get my pipe tobacco and the homebrew shop I'll never have to worry about having any extra cash.
