Cleaning Camera Sensor

1. Camera cleaning mode

Most digital cameras have a sensor cleaning mode and this is what you should always try first before going for any other type of cleaning. You should remove the lens and then aim your camera downwards when engaging the cleaning mode. This way, dislodged dust and dirt will fall out easily. The sensor cleaning mode is sometimes all you need to have a clean sensor, but you might need to employ other cleaning options if this does not yield the results that you expect.

2. Air blower

Bulb blowers make other very good tools to help you clean the camera sensor. Choose larger blowers to get rid of dust from the sensor, but never ever use air that is compressed and canned on the sensor because your risk fluid damage. When using the blower, point the camera downward to the ground so the dust can fall off the camera. The blowers use clean air paths ensuring that blown dust doesn’t get sucked back and re-deposited on the camera.

3. Sensor gel stick

A sensor gel stick and a senor brush have the same function. They are negatively charged and therefore pull dust particles off the camera sensor as compared to moving them all over the sensor. It is advisable not to press down the stick or brush on the sensor because passing over the sensor is good enough to attract the dust. Some have LED lights that help you see how you are cleaning. When getting your gel stick, ensure that it is compatible with your camera. You can choose the gel stick or the brush, whatever you feel works best for you.
