I was more thinking of a negative air pressure.... to create a way for free particles inside the camera body to float out and be captured by the vacuum. I am one of those "careful" people... so I don't haphazardly stick things inside the camera body or anything. There are other less kind words for my "condition", but you get my drift.

I'm just wondering if I set my camera on a tripod and held it upside down.... had a vacuum nozzle outside the body and used a rocket blower to rid the inside of loose particles... would this work well or should I avoid it for some reason?

Get yourself a lenspen and try to make it a habit to clean the sensor once a month. This should keep you from having to use the wet system to clean the sensor.

OK.... I need some advice once again.

I took a shot of a helicopter a few days ago. It wasn't planned but it flew over the nature preserve so... why not?

Long story short, the photo showed some sort of squiggly thing on my sensor. When I set out to clean the sensor, I didn't see anything resembling the squiggly line I saw on the photograph, so that gave me pause.

Anyway, I painstakingly cleaned the sensor... got it perfect with little effort. Took my 1D IV outside to do a test shot. When I imported the photograph, it had a worse line on it than before. So, obviously, I opened it up and sure enough, there was the offending something on the sensor...and a long pet hair of some sort at the top of the sensor as well. I know what happened... there was some loose stuff inside there that came down when the camera went through its normal auto sensor cleaning.

The next thing I did was use a rocket blower (the kind with that hepa filter on the end) and blew things out with the camera body face pointing toward the ground. That took care of what was there at the moment.

All that to get to my question: should I fire the camera sensor cleaning with a shop vac near the opening or would that be dangerous? I wouldn't put the nozzle right against the opening, obviously, and I don't know if it's a smart idea at all.... it's just that I don't want to be out and about with bits of things floating in and out of the photographs as they gently land on the sensor.

Any suggestions, cautions or mishaps about which I need to know?

This is what I use on my 1D4...
Dust-Aid Platinum...http://dust-aid.com/08DAplatinum.h​tml (external link)

It's what I use and it works great - very easy to use. I can clean my sensor in less than 5 mins. It is a dry cleaning method and can be taken with you on location. LensRentals uses Dust-Aid in their cleaning process. But unlike LensRentals, I only use the Dust-Aid and skip the blower & brushing. Seems like the sticky stamp process is all I need.

https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=iRW9AmDPqr0 (external link)

Dust-Aid also makes a wet cleaning device call the Dust-Wand, for dust particles that are stuck-on the sensor. So far I have not needed it, since the sticky stamp gets the job done.

Just make sure you get the Platinum version of Dust-Aid. It's the latest and greatest version. I bought mine from a seller on amazon, but it can be bought directly from Dust-Aid's site.

Well, it's official..... at least, in my mind. I still have to get the ads up.

I have decided to sell the replacement 7D2 Canon sent me since they couldn't figure out what was wrong with my original 7D2.... or decided it was cheaper to just replace than fix. I don't know much more than that.

I spent some more time with my new to me 1D IV and have already grown fond of it. I still have a ways to go to get totally comfortable with what it will do in what situations but I am liking the files I've seen so far. I love the way it reproduces the colors I see with my eyes. That and perhaps it's a little bit more forgiving to camera shake than the 7D2. What ever the reasons, I'm seeing very nice results and have since I first shot it.

When I combine my 100-400L ii with the 1.4X III, I'm not losing much so that is also a nice benefit. I really can't think of a negative thing to say about the 1D IV. To me, it seems ultra reliable and at the moment, that is something I prize more than the very nice bells and whistles of the 7D2. I suspect the only thing I'll truly miss is the level in the viewfinder. I already switched out the focusing screen to one with the grid so that will be fine.

Permission to come aboard.
I've pre-ordered a 1Div.
Pre-ordered? Yep paypaled a seller here on POTN a hasty downpayment before flying out.
Will paypal the remainder if I live (never truly luv'ed to fly) in a couple of days.
Why buy an almost 4 year old body? A 6 year old design?
One excuse is the Mrs. She recently embraced birds and BIF, did well at Conowingo first time out, and likes the 70D she used. Thinking why not give her more fps?
Real reason- Im moving more and more into Sony and MFT (yeah cringe if you feel the need) but stuff I've done recently with Lumix 4K Photo and Post Focus have amazed me with what can be bone with 8mp's, and the 1D4 is a whopping 16mp's :)
I've played (hobbyist amateurs are slowed to play) around enough to know crop photographers envy the FFer and FFers envy the cropper.
So why not experiment with the best of both worlds?
That said I'm waiting on a connecting flight; in the bag beside me 4 Sony's, nary an EOS. body or lens, but in a couple of weeks it'll be airtime again but Moline versus Fort Meyers, and fingers crossed the 7Dii can compete with the 1D4, Man versus woman. eerrr Me v Poof :)
Last reason but a compelling one- just reading every post in this thread and seeing the mad love passion and zeal you folks have for this camera! Now we have to see who ends up with the 7Dii and who gets the 1Div.,
