He is describing dust under the anti-ailising filter that covers the sensor, not dust on top of it. You can't swab under it.
|Quoting Sllevin (Reply 5):|
Exactly. I can accept having to clean it from time to time, but the XT was brand new in the box and had dust underneath where it was effectively "stuck."
|Quoting JeffM (Reply 7):|
Not sure where you purchased the camera Steve, but did you take a few test shots with it at the store? If not, how come? Would have saved you some grief I would imagine.
|Quoting JeffM (Reply 16):|
If you read his first remarks, the dust is under (according to him( the anti-ailising filter. You can't clean under it. Big difference.
|Quoting Sllevin (Reply 19):|
My question was to see if this was as common as Canon was claiming; that essentially, it's only the rare body that does NOT have dust under the glass.
|Quoting Fergulmcc (Reply 20):|
I must have a rare one then, as I have done the sensor cleaning and can get my sensor completely spotless.

With all due respect, I doubt it.
|Quoting DC10Tim (Reply 23):|
So what do you do? Is it a matter of simply taking it back and trying a new one until you get one that's clean?
