I was taught by silver.wolf. I can help you.

Tethered shooting straight to the PC helps check the frame each time you rub the dirt off. External power is helpful.

Learn to do it yourself, you can then clean even when out in the field.

And the glass is certainly not easy to break or scratch, you have got to be a real ogre to kill the sensor this way!

Sensor death nothing to do with cleaning. I had wonderful clean sensor shots of Malacca after that first cleaning that you did for me.

My sensor is now the third piece in the same body! :bigeyes:

3M got a wide range of tape. this particular one that is use for cleaning ccd will not leave any glue to the ccd - it will simply pick up the dusts and do the job well.

Yo, Witness,
Sorry only got to see this today... busy week.

No I do not recommend using the tape. Even Fujifilm cautions against it, as do the good camera repair/cleaning professionals (eg Camera Hospital). I have seen a botched CCD... it isn't a pretty sight. The pec-pads and Eclipse solution is the recommended approach and it does work for the bulk of the dust. Unless it happens to be a very persistent piece, then you may want to send it to Fujifilm for cleaning.

So far, I believe to regular cleaning. And that has helped to keep the sensors on both my babies clean enough for work/play. Yes, clean enough to shoot f22 without worries.
