so I used my little 2 gal air compressor with the blow nozzle. I've done this several times before..
Houston, these sensors are VERY sensitive, I would be careful withit and rather get that cleaning kit quickly than to use anything else. Even blowingwith your mouth is not advisable.

Enjoying yourpics !!

Oh, I get a chance to Jake!

I scrape these suckers with a plastic fork on which I've wrapped some lint free cleaning cloth. These sensors are tough! Metal will scratch them, little else. Not that I'm saying you shouldn't be careful...I'm sure if I persevered I could damage them eventually.

There is an IMPORTANT reason that your advice is good. There's a microscopic place BEHIND the sensor, that dust cannot normally get to. But a powerful blast of air can lodge dust behind the sensor and THEN you are &^%$%^!!!!

Because it's impossible to remove.

Thekman, Jake, Norm, Julie and Dave I really appreciate your taking the time to look in and make those nice comments. It makes my day better than anything else. Also I have a sensor cleaning kit on the way. Should be delivered Tuesday. Jake, I've never actually been 'in' a huricane before but during this time of the year they are all around us and close enough that we get lots of wind and rain from them. I think it was during the first one of the season that my truck hydroplainedand went across the median into an oncoming car. We were all very lucky and no one was hurt. And would you believe that after the wreck the first thing I did was inspect all my camera stuff before I even got out of the truck to check out the damage to it and see about the people in the other vehicle.

Cheers

Houston
