Last week we went up to Kasanka National Park in the north of Zambia to see the annual bat migration (10 million of them). Quite amazing. I cannot believe that I went to go and see bats and left my faster zoom (120-300 f2.8) at home. Duh!!!!!!!!

Obviously (being bats) light was the biggest problem. An amazing sight though. My better half kindly said that we will just have to go back next year with the Sigma.

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?

Personally I only ever use a rocket blower and a sensor cleaner, never need to blow more than that. I wouldn't use an air can or anything stronger to be honest.

As stuff goes on my sensor and I blow it out and that usually sorts it, if not I just have to edit any marks left on the image. Then blow it again to make sure its clear.

I always go through a day where ill be bored and ill clean all lenses with the rocket blower, back and front, then ill blow out the cameras.

Certainly don't put anything inside the camera body. Even the rocket blower can damage the focus screed by scratching it.

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?

Ah sorry I didn't understand what you meant. Yeah by all means do that it shouldn't harm anything but I think whatever you manage to get out would probably just get in again with a few lens changes. You may only get a few bits of dust out.

As long as its not affecting the photos then I wouldn't get too worried about it. :-)

LOL.. I wish. I had a huge white, what looked to be a dog hair and something else resembling a crumb in there. I'm not worried about a little dust... this was something else.

Well, this camera wasn't advertised as "living in a pet free home"... so I'm sure the extra goodies came along for the ride. I think I got the bigger chunks out. I'll just check it periodically to make sure no more show up uninvited. ;)
