and this is why I need to have my sensor cleaned...it is almost unusable right now at anything greater than f5.6...more than that and I spend more time cloning spots than I do shooting, editing or posting...its ridiculous...

lol, that's why learning yourself has it's advantages. The sensor cover is like 2mm thick, so it's not like it will immediately ruin if you touch it.

see here: https://kolarivision.c​om ...lter-legacy-lens-upgrade/ (external link)

one day it may be clean, and the next dirty, what to do? A blower can only do so much, then a brush, and wet. I havent wet cleaned for a long time because I've been shooting two bodies, so it keeps my sensor clean, and been around water often, dont want to risk the lens changes if I can avoid it.

DO NOT use a lens pen as some on FM have suggested. I did that and it scuffed up my sensor, granted, the scuffs dont show up, but the spots do, so not a big deal. Oh, and it's on my legacy A7r.

I am confused, clearly still tired today...the sensor cover...is that something you added...that link? I have a Rocket Blower, and it does good on loose stuff...have not dared to put a brush to it and would never use a lens pen.

Yes on top of the sensor is basically glass, so it's not as scary as people think. Funny story....a couple weeks back during a wedding I was changing lenses and my finger slipped. I put a freaking finger print on the sensor! But I keep sensor swabs, solution, and these white gloves that came with the xplor600 in my bag and was able to clean it in a jiffy.

the actual sensor lies beneath the sensor cover. When you're cleaning a sensor, you're technically cleaning the sensor cover. My old A7r has light scuffs on the sensor cover from wreckless cleaning, and I post photos from it all the time, non corrected (doesnt show up).

Love it! My favorite ballpark in America, wish I could go to it more often.

My dad helped build Dodger Stadium. He was a crane operator setting precast concrete panels and risers. He may have operated the crane below.

now I get it...glad to hear its not the actual sensor that is the first line of defense...

Very cool Gene, and nice to hear you say concrete and not cement! (I think you may have commented on that with me before)

Thanks. I have written about my time in the Navy and would love to write a story about what I've discovered about my family while researching my family tree. I just wish I were a better writer and had more patience.

My Navy story in case anyone is curious:

Thanks Eddie. Yep, I'm very familiar with concrete...and cement having worked with both for the past 20 plus years of my working life. I even have a spreadsheet I made to create mix designs. It automatically plugs in the correct specific gravity of the materials used for unit weight. It's tied into a material cost list to calculate the price per cu/yd too. :-)

Sounds right up my street haha. It always bugs me when I hear people on tv calling concrete cement. It’s like calling it aggregate or water.

I use these

https://www.amazon.com ...T=_SY300_QL70_&dpSr​c=srch (external link)

The swabs themselves are dry, but if I have a gnarly blemish (like that finger print) that a dry swab can't get off, I put a drop of the solution onto one of the swabs and gently run it over the sensor. Then use a second dry swab off any residual fluid...its usually just really fine drops that are picked up easily by the dry swab.

Usually a dry swab is all I need to clean the sensor though.
