I just ordered a kit to clean my sensor. Can someone confirm if the sensor should be cleaned while the camera is on or off (after mirror lock up)?

Second yellow wrench menu.

Choose Sensor Cleaning>Clean Manually

It will give you directions, it will lock up the mirror and open the shutter for you and when you are done, you power the camera off, so the shutter can close and the mirror unlock

Thanks for confirming. I'm a bit scared but gonna give it a go anyway.

I felt as you do the first time but honestly there is no need to it is that easy, it has already been mentioned but make sure you have a fully charged battery before you go ahead. There are plenty of indepth vids on you tube regards this with clear instruction. You will ask your self what all the fuss was for when you are done.:)

How long have you had your camera and why do you feel it needs cleaned? Are you seeing spots on your images?

ItsJustEd wrote in post #16598143 (external link)
Power must be on. There is a menu setting for locking the mirror - and to do it power must be on. Also make sure the battery is fully charged. Fairly simple thing to do. Just take your time.

What do most people feel is the best kit to buy to clean your sensor?

I have not 'yet' noticed my sensor needs any cleaning.....

Hi i use the Photographic Solutions Sensor Swabs they come in a variety of sizes to suit different sensors, with 17mm swabs being ideal for Canon APS-C format DSLRs. I do lots of hdr and it shows up dust very easily having said that i have only had to do it twice as i am carefull when and where i change my lenses.:)

I bought and used Copperhill Images. They sell a number of different kits, you decide how much you want to spend.

Nicholas R. is a member of the forum and speaks for Copperhill Images. He's been very helpful and that is the main reason I chose to go with their products.

no need to worry if you don't notice anything

But if you ever do, Amazon sells eclipse solution and swabs in a kit for $15

Like Gerry, I use the Copperhill kit. I started using it when I bought my 5D. It took a few tries, but once you get it down, you get it down. I haven't cleaned my 60D yet, but I haven't really seen anything show up on that yet. Same with my 70D. The new bodies have the auto sensor clean, so I think that's what helps.

Will,

I love your snowy. I downloaded owl sounds not that long ago. We have a couple species in the small section of forest behind our house. I can hear them every night. I need to figure out how to find them and then make plans to get some good shots.

Or I could just put out the bird feeder again. <eg> (evil grin)
