SensorSwipe

Thu Jan 06, 2005 7:16 am

Do you use SensorSwipe? If so, how do you like it? Perhaps I should have asked these questions before hand, but I just bought mine from:

I hope it will get here soon, I've got some stubborn dust I need to get out.

Couldn't open the link you provided, but anyway, I assuming you are talking about the Sensor Swab. I use it, buy the sensor swab and Eclipse together, it works well to clean the CMOS/CCD.

Take the lens off, turn on the camera, switch to the "sensor clean" mode, then use the swab to clean the cmos/ccd, it's just that easy.  Wink/being sarcasticMore detailed info can be found here http://www.photosol.com/demoswab.htm

Hope this helps.

i bought the Sensor Swab a few weeks ago and it got rid of 99% of the dust on my 10D sensor so its paid for itself already....i would have made my own but i couldn't find any of those pec pads anywhere around where i live. its a good investment.

I just ordered mine from CopperHill. You guys make it sound so easy. I'm terrified I will wipe to hard and screw up the sensor. A little $1500 mistake.

The swipe is made by cotton, you guys should not worry too much about that. Use common sense, and you will be fine.  Wink/being sarcastic
