The sensitive issuePosted: June 5, 2007
If you live in Kuwait then you are one of photographers want to clean there sensors that suffers from the dusty environment that we have here, but you ether don’t know how or afraid of scratching the sensor, well today is your lucky day, I did some search, asked few friends, and I found some of the best way of cleaning your sensor, here they are:
1.Giottos Rocket blower, it comes in 3 sizes, S, M and L, prices are averaged at around 3.5 KD.
How to use: you just open your sensor and just blow the dust away.
2. Now some times you get a very sticky spots and for that you need the “Visible Dust” wet and dry cleaners, priced for both (wet & dry) at about 50 KD (hey, who said it was a cheep hobby)
How to use: see the video at http://www.visibledust.com/
and these are the safest and best ways to clean the sensor, unfortunately these are not available in Kuwait so you have to order them from the internet, you best bet is Amazon.com.
