Don't exactly know where to post his question but still went ahead and posted it here as ( 1. ) I visit this section the most and ( 2. ) Know that the collective experience/knowledge of all here is perhaps second to none thus know that I would receive the best possible advice/replies -
I just came across the following post on fstoppers.com ( How To Clean Dust Off Your DSLR Sensor: Sensor Gel Stick | Fstoppers ) and am wondering what you all think of this Sensor Cleaning Product.
Sensor dirty accumulation is really an issue for my Cameras as the air ( except in the monsoons ) is always laden with tons of dust particles ( Am based out of India ).
I do use the Wet Method and I get ok results ( sometimes after consuming a lot of supplies and time ), but if this new method is safe, I would gladly relegate the Wet Method for this "dry" method.
My questions are as follows :
1. Has any one used this product ? If yes, what kind of results are you getting ?
2. How safe would this gel method be on/for a sensor ?
3. Does this Method leave a residue on the sensor ?
4. As there is a bit of a tug force being placed on the sensor when the Gel Wand is pulled away from the sensor, would this damage the "sensor shake mechanism" ? This last questions refers to dslr's.
I look forward to your thought and experiences on the above.
