Here's the direct links to the Cleaning Cloths etc.:
Cleaning Cloths: https://www.digitalback.com/product/ci-cleaning-wipes/
Cleaning Cloths + Cleaning Fluid Kit: https://www.digitalback.com/product/ci-sensor-cleaning-kit-2/

The links work at my end.

We're having some issues with that link to get into the store (the actual "Store" link).

You can get in the back way, by clicking this link located on our CI home page:

https://www.digitalback.com/product-category/0-pre-owned-digital-backs/

And then selecting "Certified Accessories".


Or for shortest path, below is the Certified Accessories link:

https://www.digitalback.com/product-category/0-digitalbackcom/


Jochen, we do ship internationally, but only use Fedex, so you may find that purchasing a $58 accessory is not very cost efficient once you add the shipping fees.

Hi Steve,

I guess that the cameras I have Sony and Hasselblad 555/ELD don't spill oil on the sensor. So, what I essentially got on the sensor is dust.

On the Hasselblad I need to dismount the P45+ back to change the battery, as the battery holder/motor drive sits under the back. Not really fond of removing the back outdoors. Actually, I dropped it once into gravel from 1.2 m height when it did not lock properly on the camera. It survived with barely a scratch:

  • It still focuses currectly! :-)
  • I guess it is pretty solidly built...
  • But it is foremost about fools luck, good that it hit ground sensor side up!

I often change lens outdoors as I transport all my cameras 'sans lens'. The trick is to turn away from the wind, and turn the camera downward.

Now days I travel with a small RV, on critical shoots I check the sensor with a sensor loupe each morning.

I have been shooting interchangeable lens digital since 2005 and had only one cleaning, I guess it was rainwater falling on the P45+ while changing battery. I used the original cleaning kit that came with the back.

Best regards
Erik



Eric, your need for wet cleaning on one occasion speaks well of your habits, your agility, and practices! What does the inside of your refrigerator look like?  :D

In an ideal world, a clean burst of air is all one would ever need to clean the IR Filter of dust and particulates.

However, it is a good idea to have wet cleaning capabilities handy in the event of a mishap. You'd think expensive equipment like this would be handled in the most careful way always, but ...

I have this Arctic Butterfly. Doesn’t work for me at all while trying to clean the sensor. Also way too expensive for what it does. My suggestion: run away from it.

I do get good results with wet cleaning though.

Regards,
Jaap.

It’s expensive. I have used one for many years. If blowing doesn’t work I go to the arctic butterfly. If that doesn’t work it’s a wet clean. Haven’t done a wet clean in about 5 years. I live in a very dry dusty place.
