Sensor cleaning


Link Posted 21/02/2014 - 17:15
Just about all my cameras are showing signs of dust on the sensor. I have cleaned them before using the wet system from the site here. However the system is quite costly and I wonder how members managed to keep the equipment clean and if there are any new products worthy of a mention.

I use an Artic Butterfly, easy to use, a dry clean and have found one of benefits is less cleaning is needed, prob clean the sensor twice a year.

Arctic Butterfly for stuff that isn't stuck, wet clean if it's stuck.

I've still got the fluid and swabs I bought from the site the OP cites.

The K-5 is better than the K10D for sensor dust, but now after more than two years, I've finally got a couple of spots that won't shift, so I'll be getting them out again.

I have a vague memory that not all fluids are Ok for all sensors, so it's worth checking.
