Emil,

A good blower and some E-Wipes work very well. Hasselblad even packages a 3-pack sample when they ship new cameras. Or, you can use Pec Pads and Eclipse solution.  They both work for me on the Blad. On the Nikons, I use Eclipse and Sensor Swabs in order to reach into the body.

If you have a link to a store that ships worldwide I'd be really happy :)

Emil,

You can find them at B&H, Adorama, Amazon and etc., but I do live in the U.S., so I really don't know if they will ship worldwide. Google might help here.

Good Luck,
Ed

Checked Amazon.

This item: E-Wipe Cleaning Pad for Optics 24per/box $21.16
PEC-PAD Lint Free Wipes 4"x4" 100per/Pkg by Photographic Solutions $9.49
Giottos AA1900 Rocket Air Blaster Large - Black $7.50

Is this a god 3-pack solution for cleaning the sensor? Or is the lint free wipes not needed?

Emil,

I would go with the e- wipes & blower. If you order the pec-pads you will need a bottle of the Eclipse solution as well.

The digital survival kit, I think, only includes 1 e-wipe, 10 pec-pads, 1/2 oz. of Eclipse and 4 sensor swabs ( used for small sensor cameras - Nikon, Canon, etc.)

Does that help?

Have you checked Photographic Solutions Web site - I think it's: www.photosol.com.

One thing NOT to do: use a high-pressure blower or compressed-air / compressed-nitrogen tank. I did that a while back, and I ended up having to change the IR filter. Whatever fine particles were in the hose created about 15-20 tiny pock marks in the IR filter.

I can't believe that Hasselblad, a swedish company, cannot help their swedish customers with such trivial matter.

The two tools you'll want are an air blower - Giottos Rocket Air is a good one - and an Arctic butterfly - http://www.visibledust.com/products3.php?pid=3

Using wipes is a hit and miss issue, until you're done is 10-20 times your technique may put too much or too little fluid on the pad, and then the ability to scratch it is high.  99% of what you'll encounter isn't firmly attached, so the rocket should free it.
