New Canon 6D - really dirty sensor - VisibleDust to the rescue
5 months ago

I got my new 6D recently and was surprised as to how dirty the sensor was out of the box. Counted over 40 dust specs stuck to the sensor.  I tried blowing the dust which was not much help, so i had to purchase a wet solution to clean the sensor and i am really glad I did.

it took me 3 tries to get all the dust off and that was because my first time i must have put too much liquid on the cleaning swab (really funky looking blobs) so I used a second swab (dry) to clear it up which got 90% of the dust off. Final time got all the dust off and no dust is showing @ f22 so i am happy. I have never done a wet sensor cleaning before, but am glad i did because for $25 I spent on this solution was well worth it.

For reference, I used and can recommended the

VisibleDust EZ Sensor Cleaning Kit with VDust Plus and 4 Orange 1.0x Vswabs
