Does anyone recommend a cheap way to check and clean the sensor of my
DSLR camera? I read that dust gets in easily. I have seen some tools
that clean it and check it for dust and particles, but was wondering
if there is a cheap or free alternative?
Many thanks in advance!
First follow your camera's instructions. With my Canon D30, I set the menu
to Sensor Cleaning. Be sure you have a fresh battery!
Then You try to blow the dust off with a blower. I use the Lenspen blower:http://www.lenspen.com/?cPath=1&products_id=HB-1&tpid=146
Watch the choice of your blower. Some have some type of powder inside as a
result of manufacturing. Buy one for SENSORS.
Take anothe pic as instructed above (f22, etc). If dust persists then go to:http://www.copperhillimages.com/index.php?pr=tutorialsandhttp://www.pbase.com/copperhill/image/71784128
I use both of the above, when needed. I have encountered no problems.
Thanks a million Marcel! This tutorial is perfect...
