    Which kind of cleaning kit? Actually all you need is a lenspen, a microfiber cloth and a good blower.

    Hmm i am finding a good blower and 1 more but i cant decide because i don't know what's the difference between lenspen and the swap.
    For the microfiber cloth can i use those to wipe spectacles ??

    Those aren't of very good quality. I'd suggest you get the 3M cleaning cloth, it isn't that expensive, it's a pink cloth and it works rather well for me.

    Lenspen and swab? Are you talking about the Sensorklear (from Lenspen) and sensor cleaning swabs?

    Default Dust on my dslr mirror. How do i clean it if i dont want to go to the service center.

    When i look in to my Sony A290 dslr body. I saw that there is a lot of dust in the sensor.
    How do i clean it ?? With what equipment ??
    I got recommended by some shop to use Visible dust Zeeion blower and it cost 80 bucks. Is it worth ?
    Hope someone out there could help me. Thanks in advance.

    Sorry for the double post, i post it at equipment discussion under the column of others, on the tread at the column of others seems to be very little people reading.

    I'm not sure the importance of Cleaning kit, But i would suggest getting a Dry Cabinet first, That would be a great investment to start off with.
    It does really help a lot.


    *Since this is on Topic, Hmm I have dust particle on my viewfinder glass ( Not sure what it's called ) , Not on the external side, but instead on the inside. It's not affecting my photos.etc it's just a little annoying to see those particles on my Inner viewfinder glass.

    Is it best suggest to bring to the service center? and any Seniors can shed some light on the cleaning cost?

    Looks like u love to ask alot of questions. That's good.

    If we are all amateurs, dont clean the sensors ourselves. Do it wrongly, and u can say bye bye to your cam.

    Clean lens and filters is good enough. No need to clean sensors, unless u always changing lens.

    Since u have dust on sensor, u can try the normal blower first. They call it rocket blower.

    The $80 one, bluff ppl la. Forget it

    Is yr cam still under warranty? If it is, bring it to Sony centre. They clean for free!!!

    I don't love to ask question last time, as i am shy and scared of asking stupid question.
    But now , asking question will answer the problem or trouble you are been thinking and next time i can assist people. =)
