Can you always clean the sensor of the 5D MKIV with swabs ?

I read some contradictory information. Apparently since The 1DX II One must go through Canon support, in question the fragility of the sensor ?

If people have already clean the sensor of its 5D MKIV can it confirm me that it had no problem ?

I haven't had to do a full wet clean of my 5DIV sensor yet, but I carefully followed the posts about possible IDXII sensor cleanings issues prior to buying my 5DIV.

Most of the reports of the new sensors needing special treatment arose on dpreview and the Fred Miranda forums, and just as they were gaining momentum, a couple of authoritative posts seemed to put the whole thing to bed. One was from Roger Cicala himself at LensRentals, and one was from photographer Blake Cook who copied an email he'd received from Joey Miller at LensRentals.

The bottom line was this: LensRentals doesn't treat the new sensors in the 1DXII / 5DIV any differently from earlier sensors, and they haven't experienced any unusual rates of sensor damage with them. Given the huge number of bodies they have and the frequent sensor cleanings they do, that was enough to put my mind completely at rest.

If the links have to be removed, just Google for "roger cicala clean sensor 1dxII" and follow the first few links.

The links are fine, thanks for posting them.
I haven't done it to my 5D4 yet, but would have just rolled up sleeves and gotten busy if I neeed to,. I had not read any of this.

Glad to see Roger etc. shedding some light on the subject.

for this moment after 10 month I have not yet clean the sensor I cross my finger.


Thanks GammyKnee for these links, they are very interesting. So after reading I can continue to clean the sensor when I need it with my swabs as for the sensor of my 5D MKII. Apparently it's a rumor I have read. I will be happy because the center Canon and away from home and I do not want to send it by a carrier

There was a time the 5d2 seemed to be easily damaged from cleanings due to an inferior coating, then it all quieted down, I assume the same situation here. Not sure if Canon changed something in manufacturing or not, but they remained quiet on the topic.

Actually it is strange that Canon does not intervene

Not really... If they respond in about any way, they imply liability and all the costs involved therein.
