    Default safe to self clean the CCD sensor?

    Hi guys, I've just discovered some spots on the pics taken & am speculating that it might be caused by a stained CCD sensor. Has anyone self clean the CCD sensor b4? Where can I purchase a CCD self cleaning kit? Or shld i juz sent it to NSC & how much will it cause? Pls advice, thanks.

    use visibledust's eclipse solution and sensor swabs for the first time, after that can use pec pads... always start with blower first of course

    there are many, many threads on this in the forums, please search

    if you have never cleaned before and have no confidence, please ask someone who knows how to do it to show you how to do it
    if still don't dare, send to servicing centre
    a lot of people self-clean though, saves the trouble and time and money as well in the long run
