I should have said it is my 1DX im speaking about not received my MK2 yet. But yeah its the top left of my images on my 1DX that get it bad.

Yep. My 1DX would get very oily-dusty when shooting airshows. I don't know about the mk2 yet since I haven't had a chance to shoot an airshow with it. But I suspect it'll probably still be a little oily/dusty too. 14fps can make a lot of things splash about. :lol:

I love it. Was that posed or right time right place?

Thanks PP.

This is posed. She got free for a second and I asked her to come near the window where I had already setup my softbox.

I've yet to look at the sensor nor have I noticed any oil splotches but my off week is coming up and I'll take a gander under the mirror.
Having used Sonys for quite a while I'm used to cleaning sensors.
I will say I always start out with an Arctic Butterfly which actually works for a lot of dust.

There is one in eBay, but hard to justify. :rolleyes:

Is Canon still fixing it? :rolleyes:

I am not trying to help vendors to sell, but I have been using these since the first Canon DSLR.

- Aeroclipse Digital Sensor Cleaning Fluid (too small bottle) or Eclipse Fulid
- PEC-PAD Photo Wipes
- correct size Sensorwand or Sensorswipe for the Pec-Pad (but only Amazon still selling these, I lost that company's info.)
- VisibleDust Corner Swabs for DSLR Cameras - Orange Series (16-Pack)

The above combo is the cheapest and effective way to clean your sensor. If they won't work then sell your DLSR.

The rest of the sensor swab are too costly.

I remembered that I bought a sensor cleaning kit from Copper Hill Images 3 years ago. But I never used it. I took a look, and it did have Pec-Pads, QuickStrips, Sensorwand, and Eclipse fluid. The Sensorwand is for a crop sensor, but I decided to try it anyhow.

I had to wipe the sensor several times, but it did come pretty clean. However, I couldn't find a way to make it "perfect." There were always a few spots remaining. I could get rid of some by using the camera's sensor cleaner, and I could get rid of some with a rocket blower. But I couldn't get perfection. Is that possible?


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

I've been following this thread since it was new, and I noticed that there's just something "better" about the quality of the photos here compared to what I've seen in the past. I admit I'm a pixel-peeper, and the excellence of fine details is important to me.

I couldn't afford to purchase the 1DX2 outright, but I did have a 300 2.8 II sitting in the closet getting very little use since I purchased the 100-400 II. I was also willing to part with a 7D2, a 100-400 v1, and a couple other items. I looked up the trade-in prices on B&H, and I was in the ballpark where the 1DX2 became feasible. I went to my local camera store, and their offer for the used equipment beat B&H. I accepted their offer and walked out with the 1DX2. I'm already in awe of this camera, and I hope I can do it some justice.

I have to apologize for posting sensor spots yesterday as my first photo. So I'm doing a reset and starting now with the obligatory duck. :-)
