I was in Iceland in 1985 before it got overrun by tourists. Keep in mind that there is fine dust everywhere, and it is pumice – which is used for grinding lenses. You need some brushes, blowers, etc., to keep your gear clean.
Our Icelandic tour guide, who among other things was a professional photographer, noticed me using a little 9 volt vacuum cleaner on my camera. This was before the days of ordering everything on Amazon. He asked if we could send him one when we got back home to the US. We agreed. Fifteen minutes later he came back and asked if we would leave him the one we had with us. He just could not wait to get hold of it.
great tips here, Michael!
