Yet another sensor cleaning technique
« on: July 09, 2005, 09:52:28 AM »

There is a thread running on dpreview about this 'method'.

As this is non contact/invasive & used with a blower only to dislodge the 'loosened' dust it has a lot of appeal.

There is mention of a commercial product the Milty Zerostat (UK price approx £35) that is widely (?) suggested for the vinyl audiophiles.

I would welcome any qualified views or user experience of using such a helper device.

Well, as soon as I find a place to live and get my stuff out of storage (including my Rega Planar turntable and and original model Zerostat gun) I'll let you know!  
Rega Planar - wow - I used to have one of those!! and one of the Grado cartridges - and now I remember the ZeroStat wand as well

As an aside, I had to take my 100-400 IS L into Canon (Toronto) for servicing on Monday - lost the af   While I was waiting for my number to be called, 2 pros (at the CPS counter) and one hobbyist (in my line) were in to have Canon clean their sensors...

I'll stick with Visible Dust brushes - works fine - no electrical engineering to do either.
