how to clean sensor dust?
« on: December 25, 2009, 08:32:02 PM »
its been a while i noticed my cam have so many dust already even at F8. i treid shooting at F20 and wow surprised there were so many dust in my cam. and i mean its taking too much time cloning the dust in photoshop. whats the safest way to clean the sensor? what product would be recommended for a newbie on self sensor cleaning? the built in dust reduction on my cam didn't help.

If you're not confident on doing the sensor cleaning yourself, better have am authorized service center/technician do it for you.

Use a rocket blower.. Hehe.. with the dslr facing down, blow the dust using it.

Go to service center.. Have it cleaned.

shoot a piece of white paper at a very low aperture, around f16 or lower.
you can see it right away from the LCD screen or download it and pixel peep in a bigger monitor.

Depends on handling, as care and patience is really required when cleaning the sensors.  I'm more at ease with the liquid cleaning solution rather than using a rocket blower or a sensor pen.

Make sure that when you clean the sensor, you are in a dust free environment.  Yes you can do it with the body facing down but you'll have problems on how to position yourself to clean the sensor.

first and foremost, as much as possible dry solution ang dapat na unang gawin. Meaning, gamit ng blower to blow off the non-sticking dust sa sensor, pag hindi na kaya eh wet solution na ang gagawin.

At first nakakakaba talaga, pero pag katagalan masasanay ka na rin :D gamit ko pec pads tsaka E2 solution, wrapped around a DIY rubber spatula :) eto lang din yung sinundan ko sa paglilinis -> http://www.cleaningdigitalcameras.com/

Eclipse solution and pec pads work best for me. Minsan kasi may mga specks na matigas ulo, hindi nakukuha ng rocket blower. Nagmalakas loob ako after doing thorough research on sensor cleaning on the Internet, and I found it a really easy and routine thing to do. Been cleaning maybe once to twice a month for about three years now - no problems with the cleaning at all, just be sure to follow instructions when starting out.

Dagdag lang - if you're going the eclipse/pec pad route in cleaning your sensor, consider using the board of a dvd case for the stick that you wrap the pec pad around - maganda kasi yung pag bend niya when you swipe the pad with solution on the sensor. Trim it to about a half-inch wide stick, swak na yan. Of course, this isn't novice advise, so disclaimer lang for those who are interested - there's always the chance of damaging the sensor, but this entirely depends on one's skill and care in the procedure. Naisip ko kasi na mas maingat at mabusisi naman ako compared to those guys at the service center, and it turned out I was right - it is an easy procedure (and laughable, even, considering how much they charge for the amount of work done).
