Forum members preferred sensor cleaning
Feb 23, 2012


I searched this topic here and didn't find a lot about poster's opinion. I'm interested in your preferred methods of sensor cleaning for Pentax dslr. Possible methods I've participated in discussion about are:

A) Never do it.
B) Only let a pro technician do it.
C) self clean with only a blower
D) Scrub with brush of some sort
E) Swab with methanol
F) Cellophane tape (Yikes!)
G) Other

Also are CCD sensors more likely to attract dust than CMOS. I've heard rumors to that effect.
