That's nice - all that lovely white made me notice a faint line that goes across the lousy monitor at work. Now I'm constantly aware of it.

Very nice! I'dappreciate it if you would describe exactly how you cleaned it and what products you used. I bought the sensor cleaning kit from Microtools.com but I haven't had to use it yet. So far my Rocket Blower has done the trick.

Thanks!

i use the cheapest kit from microtools.. i've found out that blowing the mirror chamber out first and then the sensor chamber helps. i use a turkey baster as a blower. i follow the instructions that came with the kit. i tried using a brand new lenspen and was horrified at the amount of trash is put ON the sensor. don't try it..

i always have the cam on a tripod when cleaning. try and have a light/lamp over your shoulder for visibility. the way i ck for dust is create a full screen white image on the monitor and shoot it with a lens stopped down to f22 for 2 seconds exposure. i move the cam around when i do the exposure. open that image you just took in a progy and hit auto levels and read it and weep.. after you've done it a few times you won't get the shakes.. it usually takes me 2 swaps to get it spotless. ck in between swabs.. if it takes 2 then i run the next swab the opposite direction from the first.
