Sensor Cleaning - Options and Suggestions
Jul 5, 2008

Well, the time has come... My D2Xs has finally gotten enough stubborn dust particles on the sensor that I will need to either dry contact clean or wet clean the IR cutoff filter (or whatever element of the sensor sandwich is in front

I have looked at a few options on line but wanted opinions on these from you folks.

This one seems very intrusive and dangerous but wow, the idea is interesting.

I am much more familiar with the likes of Visible Dust and Sensor Swabs.

Also have seen discussions on 3M tape and other solutions.

Any ideas suggestions comments opinions tips etc. will be highly appreciated.

I had my D70 cleaned by Nikon once and it came back as if new... What system does Nikon / Canon use for cleaning sensors? Proprietary or a commercial one?

Thanks for your help...
