damn. swab that shit (google copper hill) then learn how to change lenses.
I just ordered this...
I wash my hands thoroughly then get a clean q-tip from a sealed box I have and wipe the glass in front of the sensor ever so lightly. Works like a champ and have not left a scratch yet. Only had to do it twice though.
i was tempted to use a Qtip...but decided against it. I was also gunna use a microfiber lense towel...but also decided against it.
works for me.
rocket blower... i use one about every 3 months
i dont wanna scratch anything..
qtip will probably leave more behind than it takes up.
Can you see any of that in your regular shooting?
Rocket blower FTW...
I have swabs but have never had to use them.
holy shit f/36... lol
hehe hence my question.
after using the swipe method:
i cant get that speck in the upper to middle right to go away! I swiped like 7 freaking times, it just wont leave.
The image is inverted on the sensor, so it wont be in the 'upper right' if you are trying to spot clean. also check the back of the lens.
I just did 25 second exposure on my camera to see how bad it was, and it's still cleaner than your after picture.
How do you change your lenses? I point my camera downward before swapping them out.
i know, i can visually see the 'speck' on the sensor, but it just wont come off.
its my first time doing the swipe, i got the majority of the dust off the sensor, ill try again tomorrow.
and yeah, i do the same, point the camera down when i change the lenses.
He apparently takes his vacuum bag and shakes all the dust out into the air and then points his camera sensor side up and changes the lens as slow as possible.
I would chock this cleaning up as a win....can you see that spec in normal use at all?
Just trying to be helpful, I wasn't saying you did a bad job swiping. Good luck tomorrow.
