First Time Cleaning a sensor
1

I have been shooting digital SLRs since at least 2004/2005 and believe it or not, never had to clean a sensor before.  Go figure!

So I notices a dust spot on my KP that was pretty large at F8 and up and the vibration would not get it off.  My first attempt at cleaning it with air only resulted in more spots... so I grabbed  some sensor cleaning brushed and fluid off amazon and bit my lip and gave it a whirl.

Much easier then I expected and seriously one wet brush and dry brush pass had it spotless.

Almost makes me want to do it every quarter just because I can now... not really.  But go figure my KP would be the first sensor that needed a cleaning.
