Peachtree Camera cleaning service

I have my sensors cleaned usually once a year by a professional too, who is super meticulous and keeps a screenshot of the cleaned sensors in his files.

after a shoot today at an airshow on a grassy field, constant lens changing (must get a huge bank loan for that second body.....), everything has dust and the rest all over it. Sensor clean for sure, the rest will be getting a good clean by me.

Does anyone use a vacuum with a soft small diameter pipe duck taped in place? I figure this must be better than just moving it around with a blower!?

At the state fair in 2011, I was standing next to a cow (in one of those open-bar enclosures) looking through some photos I had just taken, when said cow decided to kick it's back legs hard and spray me with that sawdust-like bedding stuff. And I didn't have a puffer with me, just a lens cloth. That was an annoying cleanup process involving taking off parts, blowing on stuff, etc to get rid of all that junk. Of course I moved far away from the cow enclosures before doing so...

Luckily nothing got inside the mirror box since the lens was on. If I'd been changing lenses when that happened, I may have had to kill a cow.

So my prevention tip: Don't stand near a cow.
