Sometimes, it just won't come clean.

Bleach. That'll remove anything. ;p


I'll try that this weekend. Thanks!

Thanks. I was under the mistaken impression that the sensor was delicate and that I needed to be somewhat gentle. So glad for all the tips shared here.

permaschmutz. at last a name. now for a solution. why isn't someone besides the lens cleaning paraphernalia people making a fortune from harvesting this stuff?

(actually they are: I had my old dslr professionally cleaned, and they ever so carefully left the oily/permadots behind. heck, I can get the dust myself).

Jeez, Julee...

In the event you took any of this seriously...do NOT go near your camera with a wire brush and bleach!

I might be green, but not that green... *casually tossing wire brushes into the garbage*

A putty knife or razor blade works much better.

Now that we're being serious, a loofa with a touch of acetone will get rid if all your spots

i thought he liked fava beans and a nice chiante...

seriously though, i have heard of silly putty and scotch tape being used on electronics before.
i don't use them on camera gear, but i keep alcohol wipes on hand at work for cleaning electronic components (i do desktop computer support...compressed air and alcohol wipes have fixed more issues than you'd expect).
i wouldn't advocate compressed air in a camera though.

Oiiii, was this a joke?????? Just tried it... oh no, all spots are long stripes now and every image looks like it has been processed with some blurry filter.

Lucky for me I tried it on my wife's Canon-EOS 1DX first. Pfff. Lucky me!

I'm pretty sure it was ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' DrAchoo

Edit, yes I had remembered correctly.

Canned air might not too good but you can use a rubber bulb syringe from the drugstore (the kind used for cleaning babies's noses) safely enough.

Heres a link to a very old article on sensor cleaning. Back when I was using my Canon 40D regularly, I followed the process and used the products mentioned frequently.

The first time I cleaned my own sensor, my palms were sweaty and I had butterflies in my stomach, but I got the job done. Afterwards, thinking about the $$$ I saved, I felt a lot better.

For the last four years of so, I've been shooting with a 7D which has it's own sensor cleaning mechanism that activates whenever you turn the camera on or off (and there's a menu command you can use to activate the cleaning function at will). I've never had to clean my own sensor except to use a hand blower. If I use the hand blower, I give it a couple of puffs away from the camera to get rid of any dust that may have lodged in it since the last time I used it.

I am glad you mentioned that because I was going to ask which would be best for just the dust inside.. I just had to clean my sensors because I change the lens out all the time..

I ended up loving having this clump of minimal challenges. I was on vacation and do NOT like to edit on my laptop so it was perfectly timed for me. Unfortunately, though I shot for Macro, I forgot about the time difference and ended up being too late to get an entry in.
