I've always been careful when changing lens adhering to all the sound advise previously mentioned & typically would only swap lens once on a shoot unless absolutely necessary.

The problem is that you never now that you have a problem until after the event when you've finished a shoot.

Fortunately, Photoshop has a number of tweaks that cleans things upand it only seems to show up on plain backgrounds.

I guess that we secretly envy those cameras that have ultrasonic cleaners that give the sensor a quick shake every time they are switched off (or is it on).

expensive pocketliner(imho) and not your pocket. i use the kit i posted above. no problems and you would still have to use it when the brush is inadaquate. each his on, but eventually the sensor shield is going to have to be really cleaned. it's a piece of cake...

Robar

I went to your link and couldn't find anything for "TUT"

When I searched for "TUT" it gave some items called Capacitor Substitution Box and Resistor Substitution Box.

Here is a good article on the subject of sensor cleaning:

http://www.luminous-landscape.com/es...cleaning.shtml


I tried the Eclipse fluid mentioned in the article and it does work, and so does my camera.


I still try to change lenses in a smuch shelter as I can find. A bit hard in the middle of a kart circuit.

I regularly use a rubber blower, and the cleaning fluid and swabs as a last resort.
