Hi Forum,

I went and purchased a rocket blower. I followed the instructions, locked the mirror and attempted to remove the dust. I had three specs which are now gone except for one stubborn bunnie that wants to reside in my camera. I don't believe the bulb is that strong. One camera rep pointed to the bulb and the other to the air can. I read that there can be some residue from the air cans so I stayed away from that option. Any other solution other than sending the camera out. I know I can clone, but I usually do post processing in Nikon Editing and print.

Happy New Year to all,

Nadia

Hi Nadia,

I understand you never want to blow anything in your camera. This is what I do:

Hi Darell,

I was so frustrated, I did see the site you sent to me and I tell you the blub pressing may not be the way to go.At one point b/c I moved the dust around I also got a long stran of fiber. I tried severalmore times holding the camera at everypossible angleand I finally dislodged the stubborn dust bunnie andthe stran of fiber. I was ready to have it done professionally. the problem is dust ispart of having a SLR/Digital camera, so I need to learn how to clean it in the most efficient and easiest method. I think the Copperhill method is going to be seriously considered. It is nice to process my pictures without the specs of dust.

Thanks for your help. Have you tried it?

Regards,

Nadia

I purchased it several months ago, but have not yet had to use it. I do change my lenses often, so I have been very lucky.
