Photo Q&A

1: Manually Cleaning the Sensor
I have an older Nikon which does not have an automatic sensor cleaner. I have three spots on the sensor which the local Nikon dealer was unable to remove.
Has anyone had any success stories about using a liquid commercial sensor cleaner? I was thinking about using the products from Copper Hill Images.
Appreciate your feedback.

- William F. Collins
ANSWER 1:
Hi Bill, I clean my Nikons (D300, D700) using Sensor Swab and Eclipse, both from Photographic Solutions. I've never had a problem using them, and they work great.
