Re: dust from your blower

in your original post you said the many marks appeared after cleaning with your blower. So it could be that the blower has aged and is propelling particles onto the sensor. I would throw it away and purchase a new one.

the marks that remain will need to be wet cleaned away. There are many and I think it will take several swabs to clean. It may be easier for you to send the camera to Nikon in this case. Learn to clean your sensor when there are fewer marks. I.e. the next time the sensor gets dirty, as it surely will.


Thank you Peter, I probably will send it in, I don t think that the warranty wil lcover the cost of the cleaning (50$ +tax)  so you are saying it is dust that got stucked and non oil, am I correct?
