All though most of the time I carry to cameras with lenses that I think I will use for a day out shooting I still wind up changing a lens, and sure enough I get something on my sensor, My guy that does the cleaning is 40 miles away, so I have been watching videos and reading anything and everything on cleaning my own sensor's. Can anyone recommend a quality system. Looked at Delkin but have terrible reviews, and  Visible Dust which has decent reviews.

So here is my Question do you clean your own sensor? what do you use and what type of sensor loupe.

I have never tried to clean my own sensor. I take it to the same camera shop I have been using for about 25 years. Its $35 to clean my sensor but I also know that if he screws it up HE pays for the repairs and not me. Id rather go play in the dust, dirt, water, fog etc... and make the mess then let someone else clean it up. lol

Thanks Brad, I have more faith in myself!! LOL

Good Day Denny, I bought a sensor cleaning kit. It came with a squeeze air blaster I start with that making sure to blow any loose dust out. Then I take one of the individual swabs bend the tip to a 90 degree angle unwrap and add tiny bit of lens cleaning solution. Did a good job however it is very easy to miss a small area if you don't inspect your work with good lighting and maybe even a magnifying glass.
