So, how do repair shops clean CCDs? Do they really have special methods? Or does it just seem like it because they do it in a back room?
Tech at photoshop does this in a back room, without a Great Pyrenees, or a Maine Coon, over his shoulder.
Ah, not so much a “Clean Room” but a cleaner room.
Ah yes, the reason that I apply any screen protectors at work.
I cleaned cameras and lenses at a big camera rental outfit for a couple years. We tried all kinds of sensor-cleaning methods, and the model we unanimously liked best was the Dust-Aid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZfS4efGZak
A Dust-Aid plus a Giottos “rocket” air blower took care of 99% of the dirty sensors we encountered.
There are various different methods, both dry and wet.
Btw. I thought these days CCDs were the exception in general photography cameras and CMOS was all the rage.
You can’t win the battle against that level of floof.
Kai and Lok had great repartee-- a shame that they film their bits separately now.
Wait. I don’t get it. How do you clean an FX sensor with a DX swab? I thought you were only supposed to make one pass across it.
Wonder how well these would work for cleaning optical elements in a laser printer.
