It's the thorough cleaning I'm after.
The rocket blower and sensoklear pen havetill now done a decent enough job, and I think will be ok in future as part of routine maintenance.

But I need something to get the stubborn stuff off and that is going to have to be a wet method.

I'll take a look at their wet system. I was lookng earlier today, If I'm not getting my brands confused they do the "green" swab system. I think it was about £30 for a dozen wipes, then I guess it will bea few more pounds for whatever fluid they make.

John.

The kit I purchased has the orange colored handles on the wands and they did a good job for me. I'm not familiar with the green ones so can't comment on their fittness...sorry.

Cheers!

Hi there, I have used the VISIBLEDUST green swabs with the smear away liquid. I got some oil (I think) on the sensor and it worked very well although I had to wait until the swabs arrived from overseas which was nerve wrecking. I had to use a few swabs but it was worth it.

I have one dust spot thats been a pain to get off, but I have only used a blower since I am too chicken to try the wet swab method. I can usually clone it out in LR3 though.

From a walk today in the park with my pooch Violet.

Thanks for the comments on the dust. I guess I'll go with visible dust.

Here's one from today:

Nice work by everyone lately... I've been on a hiatus from digital for a bit... getting back into film for fun (and for travel/backpacking, as I really don't like carrying 35 lbs of gear around with me)! As you can see in my signature I've gone a bit to the Dark Side, hope that's ok with you guys! Anyway here's a couple shots from the Juan de Fuca trail on the west coast of Vancouver Island in November.

I've picked up an adapter so I can use the Nikkor lenses on the 1DsII, which should be fun. Will be shooting more digital soon!

I like the slight softness in the second shot! It kind of fattens up the vegetation a bit, in a nice way!

Cheers!

Thanks Jeff. Those are pretty much straight off the scanner (Canoscan 9000F), so I could definitely sharpen them up quite a bit. And I think it was shot at ~1/4 of a second, balanced on the edge of a log. I love the quality of every shot I take on film though, even if I miss the focus or just have a bit of motion blur, everything about them is wonderful.

Here is another one, my girlfriend with the 105mm f/2.5 wide open, Ilford Delta 100, no sharpening.

One from this summer of my niece. My sister-in-law and her husband haven't seen it yet, but I framed it for them for Christmas.
