10/02/11 122 W, 2 I - + 6 - 1 Cleaning Your Camera Sensor

Own a digital SLR camera and you'll see these spots sooner or later. What's that, water on the lens? Nope, those are dust particles on the sensor. (Water spots are huge by comparison, and translucent.) My first line of defense is a dust blower. Little round rubber thing that expels a burst of air. Works pretty good. Then check the camera sensor, to see if it worked. Still seeing spots? Next line of defense is a wet cleaning, using these products from Photographic Solutions. Works like a charm. What about spots on photos already taken? That one's easy. Digital post-processing and they're gone. Click to enlarge. And five points extra credit if you can identify the shot:

Thanks Mike. I have wondering how to clean those spots and where they came from. I thought the problem was on the lens. I forgot about the senor. I have enjoyed your photos. Being a retired fireman from WNHFD, the memories of firefighting return. Thanks again.
