    :hsd: What do I do? I bought a crumpy cleaning kit but the shit won't get all that shit out..... How long does it take Nikon to refurbish or clean out my sensor? Or can someone recommend a really good kit? I have used compressed air many times to get that shit out.... But I think some of it is behind the shutter and wont let loose.

    there are numerous sensor brushes for $20-30. I prefer these over the blowers. The wet solution is better at cleaner the tougher to remove spots but a brush should clean most of it.

  4. Suprised no one caught this yet... You have to flip that mirror up (not shutter) before you can get to the sensor.

    First you have to set your camera to MLU (mirror lock up) or there is probably a sensor cleaning option in the special functions menu.

    My advice would be to get a blower and give that a try first. Make sure you're holding the camera with the LCD facing the sky so the dirt falls out. Brushing the sensor I have no experience with that but just the thought of it makes me nervous.

    And stop putting your lenses in your pockets!! :)

    good luck!
