Sensor cleaning question
« on: March 17, 2021, 16:30:25 »
Hi all,

I decided to take on sensor cleaning for my Sony Nex-6. I ordered the cleaning kit that includes the fluid and the swaps. It turned out the swaps I got are narrower than the sensor height. Have any of you ever used that kind of swaps? Should I get the swap size that fit the sensor?

Cheers,
Zang

It should be fine. If you do it right there will be no streaks at the edge of pad anyway. Maybe get a different size when you finish with the ones you have.

I think cleaning went well :)

The fact that I paid $30 for the camera (when the cleaning kit cost me $15) made me very confident :)
