Ok, so I find that I have several significant dust/pollen spots on the sensor of my Leica M240. I have tried several times to use a syringe type of blower to blow the dust off. I have done this in the past with some success but now the air blowing method does not work at all.
I've read a good bit on sensor cleaning procedures for DSLR cameras and a few threads on the subject on Leica cameras. It's confusing research as some say that "X" brand of cleaning sticks/fluid is best and others are vehement in their warnings against "X" and pro "Y". Of course, the opposite is true as well. I have read the thread about cleaning the MM sensor in this forum, but I understand that since those CCD sensors are different, the cleaning procedure is quite different as well.
Anyway, there seems to be a general feeling of dread among Leica owners about cleaning the Leica sensors. Given that the Leica service is quite expensive and time consuming, I would like to try a DIY option. Frankly, I am more reluctant to send off the expensive body off to get service and possibly get lost of damaged in transit. Also, I don't like to do without my camera for days and possibly weeks... I would welcome advise and suggestions from those who have actually done this deed. Please share on the best tools for the job and any warnings or advise on the procedure itself. I'll wait to hear from you before I buy the cleaning sticks, fluids, etc. Thanks in advance for your input.
