    Sensor Dust & Sensor Cleaning Sony A7r

    Has anyone had any major or minor problems with Sensor Dust or Gunk on their A7r's? What about any particulars about cleaning the sensor when it does get dirty. What sensor cleaning fluids can be used?
    Thanks,
    J. Paul

    What happened? I never cleaned any of my sensors except with a Camgloss handblower.
    Must have been lucky.

    Michiel, you must be lucky or live in a laboratory clean environment . I have always had to use blowers, sensor brushes and swabs with cleaning fluid on all of pro Canon bodies.

    Probably, but Canon was known for that. I had mostly cameras with dust shake mechanisms. Once I bought a swab with fluid for my NEX-7 but finally I never really needed to use it.
    Now and then dust is all over the place.

    It was an issue for my canon 1ds, 1ds Mark ll & lll. Maybe the newer Canon bodies are better.

    My theory is that the shutter mechanism is designed to be so loud, so that it shakes the dust off the sensor!

    I have seen dust on mine - but nothing to worry about, and it seems to have gone away without intervention . . . mind you, I have no problem about cleaning sensors.

    Just this guy you know
