Spring Cleaning Time

OK, we should be cleaning our gear a whole lot more than once a year. Right now, you might have some time on your hands which is a great time to do a deep clean of all your camera gear. Cleaning of our digital camera sensors has plagued photographers for centuries (ok, a couple of years). Just like our cameras, some aspects of cleaning our sensor have changed and some have remained the same. This video (which means it supersedes all others of mine) reflects what I’m doing today to clean sensors which include mirrorless. These are the tools I use to clean the sensors of my cameras:

VisibleDust Ultra MXD-100 Green Sensor Cleaning VSwabs
VisibleDust Ultra MXD-100 “Green” Corner Swabs
VisibleDust Zee Pro Sensor-Cleaning Bulb Blower
VisibleDust Quasar R 5x Sensor Loupe
Optic Cleaning Solution

This video expresses my methods for cleaning and it’s up to you if you follow it or not. It, in some cases, does not follow the recommendations in the camera’s instruction book. There is a risk in cleaning your sensor so if you are uncomfortable doing it, don’t do it!

When it comes to cleaning the rest of my gear, here’s what I do.

Mentioned in this video:
Lens Clens I’ve used this for 40 years on everything BUT the sensor.
VisibleDust Ultra MXD-100 Green Sensor Cleaning VSwabs
VisibleDust Ultra MXD-100 “Green” Corner Swabs
VisibleDust Zee Pro Sensor-Cleaning Bulb Blower
VisibleDust Quasar R 5x Sensor Loupe
Optic Cleaning Solution

And when I say deep, my class on Camera Gear Care over at KelbyOnecovers it all. I hope it helps you get the most out of your gear and extend its life in service of your photography!
