    Sensor Cleaning: What Works for You?

    Hi All,

    I have dust or something on my sensor. Have checked out cleaning options online. Looks like a dry clean is the best option to start with in terms of cost & effectiveness. Am looking at buying a refill Arctic Butterfly brush as the machine itself is pricey.

    I've read that wet cleans can leave residue in the corners. The gel-stick looks promising but some pple have had issues with that leaving residue.

    Would love to hear what works consistently for you, both for dry and non-dry cleaning.

    Many thanks!!

    try blowing it away with a good quality puffer is the 1st thing
    I'm a bit behind sensor cleaning these days -- 4-5 years since I did it

    some camera stores do it at a reasonable price while the main camera repairers do it for a few more $$

    I had rather hit-miss results

    Thanks; yeh did that and no win. Total pain in the a. Never had that issue w/ my FM2

    (Nor having to worry about the shutter mechanism failing after 150000 clicks - seriously Newer, 'high spec' bodies and the shutter needs replacing after x clicks?!! )

    I'll buy the brush from B&H & see how I go. Appreciate your feedback
