Digital SLR Cleaning Methods
This paper has been written to provide an overview of the different methods and technologies available to clean the sensor in a Digital Single Lens Reflex Camera (DSLR). The article gives an overview of each method and highlights the advantages and disadvantages of that method.
This article is not a tutorial and assumes that the reader is familiar with the working of a modern DSLR and is comfortable with accessing the sensor for cleaning purposes. If you have not cleaned the sensor on your camera before, you are strongly urged to read our tutorial on sensor cleaning which can be found here.
After reading through this material you should have a good knowledge of the different methods available and be able to make an informed decision about which product(s) you may wish to purchase and use.
