Default [Youtube tutorial] Compact Digital Camera dust cleaning from sensor/lens

Hello everyone, my first post although I read SD homepage for years

I had several compact digital cameras in recent years and few had a problem with constant blurry spot which turned out to be a dust on a sensor. Yesterday I spoted this issue with my current Oly C7000z which is excellent camera despite being "old" by todays standards. It makes really great photos.

I started thinking to find a way how to solve that annoying dust spot on the sensor DIY and succeeded to my great joy!

So, I've decided to share this very simple idea with the rest of photogaphy world and put a video on YT how I did it. It's really so simple, I didn't beleive it would work.

here's a link to the video:

Thanks Darko

good idea you have there - and to film it makes it easy to understand too
ps- one minor typo in an otherwise excellent text "dust inside the lens can be easily spotted" > don't know if it can be easily edited, but it would make the video 100%

Thanks Phil,
I did made couple of spelling errors, well you see, English is not my native language and I rarely use it in spoken/written form - other than reading mode. As time goes by, in life's picture other things comes into focus so it was late when I noticed couple of errors into already hard-coded and half-uploaded video.

Just hope there won't be any casualties
