Visible Dust kit to the rescue
Mar 5, 2005

Finally decided it was time to think about cleaning the 'ole 20D sensor 'cause, you know, it might have a speck or two of dust on it. Ordered the kit from Visible Dust and it arrived yesterday in less than a week I think. Opened the front door, set the aperature to f/22 and took a picture of the sky since that seems to be how to make lens debris visible. Boy was I in for a surprise! There must have been more than 30 little fuzzies all over that picture. I don't remember changing a lens in a dust storm but I must have.

Anyway, followed the directions for cleaning the sensor. Did it twice just to be sure and took another picture. Ah, almost perfect. One small dot remains that I'm going to ignore for now. It might require the wet cleaning system. Regardless, the Visible Dust system works very well and I'm very pleased. Just FYI.
