Cleaning the Sensor

I change lenses a lot during a wedding shoot and it's getting round to the fact that puffing away with my air blower only does a so-so job, I have a few spots that blowing cannot shift

I used Photographic Solutions Sensor Swabs with my EA50 but the A7s sensor is so much bigger for some reason I'm loathe to touch it but honestly cannot send it away to be cleaned every time - it would break the bank.

With such an exposed sensor I'm guessing you all have this problem so your safe solutions would be most welcome

I'm now thinking instead of swabs and fluid one of these

Hi Pete,

I have had some success with Kinetronics Speck Grabber.

Peca pad + Eclipse cleaning solution

Never had a problem. Cut and fold swab to whatever size you need. Use it to clean your lense too.
