Hi Folks,

Despite owning my D700 for a number of years now I have never cleaned the sensor! Well I am guessing it's about time as there are a few (several) spots noticed when looking at a white wall pic at f14 (not in pics at normal f numbers though).

Since you have had the D700 for several years, it is probably not break-in oil. I found that a wet cleaning is not necessary unless there is oil. Read this page for an economic and effective method.

Hi Robin,

Thanks for the info and link, very useful and saved for future ref.

To be honest I am not even sure I need to clean it as I do not see any problems at the f numbers I mainly use! There are a few dust bunnies there but not visible in any Photos so the "brush method" may well be all that is needed. It's just that I have had the D700 for so long now and never cleaned (brush or wet method) I feel maybe I should!!

I will certainly use the brush method first and see how we go from there.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

Regards, Mark (winter1)
