O.K., Gurus of the Nikon Cafe...HELP! Reading many instructions about cleaning the sensor of my camera, there are warnings about"BAD"cleaning kits/materials. :wideyed: O BOY...HOW to tell?

I bought a UES APS_C Sensor cleaning kit...fluid, which states; "UES specialist sensor cleaning liquid adopts German Technology. The...cleaner is 100% non-toxic and non-alcoholic." a bunch of swabs, plus instructions. I also have a Rocket blower. O.K., So far, so good? Or...should I spring for one of the "famous name" kits, just to be on the safe side?

I am about to use the kit for the first time ever, because it looks like my camera sensor does need a cleaning. All the warnings about"Bad" cleaning kits, and the removal of the "anti aliasing" filter from in front of my D 7100's sensor have me in a state. :cautious: I am afraid I'll damage something. Any advice will really be appreciated.

Thanks!:)

If I can do it, anyone can. Save the stiff drink for afterwards, though.
You can't be anywhere as cautious as I was before my first time cleaning a sensor... and I say it really is a piece of cake... which also should be done after a sensor cleaning because you really don't want crumbs in there ;)
