    I must be getting good at this. Used only one swab, and two pass. Nice'n clean at f/22 now.
    btw, the picture is taken at ISO2000. What irony huh?
  2. :smile:no idea what the post is about but hope the two huge black splotches are on the cloth.
  3. Hmmm...

    Maybe he cleaned is camera sensor.. with that sensor cleaner. :smile:

    And I am guessing those black spots are blurred, punched holes in notebook paper. :biggrin:

    I hope.

    You obviously are lucky enough to not have to clean your sensor. :wink:
    Those are holes from the white paper that I use to check my sensor.
    If you look at the picture and think about it more. everything on the desk is essentially tools for sensor cleaning. The Flash is used to exposed the white paper at f/22 and above. E2 is the cleaning fluid designed for sensor with ITO coating. And the sensor swab is to clean the sensor.
  5. Nick I have not yet used wet cleaning and do understand the pic but not the post. btw despite being in the trades and having little fear of anything mechanical I have yet to get the nerve to wet clean. I do have one spot that only wet cleaning will resolve but for now when it shows up I clone it.
    Are you happy with that product? so many to choose from.

    Glenn, this is the only wet solution product I've tried. So far, it works great. You just have to get over the fear of touching the sensor and try it a couple time with care.
    Wet solution is last resort, I usually use a rocket blower before I take out the E2.
  7. Sensor cleaning is a joy of photographic commitment! :tongue:

    Either the OP or I have to be drunk. I don't see any connection between FF and dirty sensor, and even less between ISO and dirty sensor.

    What is sure that "this is me" (no, it is not me) has no idea of either the sensor cleansing or its verification.

    from what I have heard especially from canonnites (who have had FF sensors longer than us) that FF sensors get dirty more often. not sure why. just seems to happen more. I have never yet wet cleaned. :)
