When I bought my 1DsMkII, I asked the seller what he used to keep the sensor clean and he suggested I get what he uses and based on his recommendation and what I have read here on this site, it seemed like a sound choice.

So far, I've only had to use the kit once to do a thorough job and since then I've changed lenses numerous times and haven't experienced any problems and of course, would use my bulb blower first if needed and the kit as a fall back alternative.

I'll let you guys know how often I have to use the kit. Prior to having it though, I had my 5D for a little over a year and ended up taking it in to a local shop for a cleaning and they charged me 60 bucks and had to leave it with them over night so I figured now with two FF bodies, the kit will pay for itself eventually.

Cheers!

I used to go mental on my 5d and now im scared its gonna happen all over again.... :) In the end im using Sensor Swab type 3. it did the best job on my 5d after trying almost everything.... even one of those little vacuum cleaners that you put on the sensor almost, what a rip off that was :) Anyway so you guys think that the sensor swab would be alright on the 1ds MK2 no? Ive got a Giotto Rocket in the post so ill wait until i get it and let photoshop do the job until then...

I did use the Visible Dust sensor swab with its associated cleaning fluid and it did a very good job of getting the majority of the spots off the sensor and then used the Arctic Butterfly to grab the remaining couple of spots and all has been well since then. Assuming the swabs you're using are of a similar quality and design, you should be fine. ;)

Again, the blower bulb/rocket blower should always be the first plan of attack and all the other options used after that.

Cheers!

Some people are offering the 1ds2 for sale without the ac adapter dck-e1.
Anyone know of a good replacement part? It is no longer for sale as far as I can tell...

Here is one on the B&S for $2500 / obo. I've bought from the seller before and it was a quick transaction.

Hey guys, so after possessing the 1Ds MKII for more than 3 weeks, i have finally taken it out of my room and put it to real use. I must say that I am very pleased with the photos. I dont know if its me or the camera, but the photos didnt seem to require much tweaking. i was really satisfied with them straight out of the camera (maybe I dont have a good eye).
anyway, here are some of my favourites from the weekend. LOVE this camera. Well worth the money. p.s. the 50mm 1.4 IS SWEET!
photos taken with 50mm 1.4, 70-200 2.8 IS, 17-40 L. and yes....i love painting with my torch
enjoy (sorry for the hugeness of the pics)

Some very nice shots but where's the snow? Just kidding, but since it isn't cold there what kept that camera house bound for 3 weeks? The 2 different dock shots are rather interesting. Larry.

No, I think you have a good eye because the shots look great to me.

Haha it's the southern hemisphere here. No snow for us. But will be going to japan so look out for some snow pics.

I've just been lazy. The camera should go wherever I go.
Thanks for the nice comments

hey guys, me again.
When i was editing the photos last night, i came across a few pictures that looked like this. It had random coloured pixels scattered all over the picture (it didnt look as bad as this when it was in Aperture, so i was able to clone them out with a few clicks). However this only appeared a couple pictures where i did some light painting (in bulb mode). Do you guys know what is up with my camera or my computer? I ahve never seen that before. Is it becasue it cant handle the blackness of the scene? or the long exposure? or.....
this photo was exposed for about 26 seconds at f9.
Its a little bit of a worry...hope someone can help!
p.s. i should add that these dots can be seen when viewing on the camera (zoomed in)

Those are hot pixels. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
