if alot of dust is getting in..you've got to ask yourself why. i've taken my time to change lenses etc but still i don't have dust problem. recently sent my cam to canon SC but they told me my sensor is clean. not sure why u have so much dust inside.

safest is bring to nikon sc la.

sometime dust isn't on your senor but on the mirror. try clean the mirror and see if there is any improvement. good luck to you.

If the dust is on the mirror, it is very unlikely that you will be able to see it in the viewfinder.

Hi Isaiahfortythirtyone,

You very sure your CCD is very clean ? Maybe you might want to do this test to check

Hope you don't see anything extra appear :)

I read that Eclipse is a high concentration ethanol. Ethanol is not too plastic friendly- so one has to be very careful in applying Eclipse to clean the sensor as the sensor is bordered by plastic. Anyone has any feedback onr comments on the process? Thanks.

I have one bottle of eclipse to let go, never used, wanted to do my own CCD cleaning last time, now give up... rather send in for general servicing + cleaning :)

Eclipse is not high concentration ethanol, it is suppose to be PURE ethanol (nothing is pure, marketing hype). It is purer than medical or lab grade ethanol. By being pure, it prevents leaving smudges of liquid stains on the sensor glass.

Eclipse will not harm the plastic on the camera body. If in doubt, take ethanol and start scrubbing the plastic on an old camera. You'll find it quite OK. :)

Wow.. if it's purer than medical/lab grade ethanol then it must be quite expensive because of the tax since it would be drinkable.
