    I have one of this cleaners, working great for my DSLRs, just one point: NEVER ever touch the front of the butterfly with your hands, because then you can throw it away. I think, they have now a liquid for cleaning, didn't try it out yet.

    I spoke with Ted Schilowitz this week at InterBEE Japan about this exact issue.

    He carried two items with him to clean the sensor:

    - Delkin SensorScope to see if it needs cleaning
    - Eclipse (old version, NOT E2) and PecPad/SensorSwipe combination to clean the OPLF sensor filter

    For a lot more info on how the SensorSwipe/PecPad thing works, read this page:

    how to treat your batteries:

    Q:i have a few spare red batteries i won't need for another few months. should i cycle them now a few times to test them or just store them until i need them. i don't believe there should be memory issues but is it bad to de-virginize new batteries and then let them sit around waiting until i really need them?

    A:for Li-Ion Batteries:

    Store the battery in a cool place at about a 40% state-of-charge. Some reserve charge is needed to keep the battery and its protection circuit operational during prolonged storage. Avoid keeping the battery at full charge and high temperature. To prevent failure, never store the battery fully discharged. Apply some charge before storage, and then charge fully before use.


    this is from another thread, but it belongs to this one in my opinion
    red is not a color, it's a camera.

    What I don't understand is that we've all wanted a Film like HD camera....now we have one, but we think it's crazy to have to maintain it like a film camera? You still have to check the gate after every setup, and AD's will still be able to call that out.

    Getting dust on the sensor isn't an world ending event. It's the same as getting a hair in the gate, or a film chip as well.

    Keep the inside of your camera clean, and it should be fine. You can find artifacts on your sensors glass by pointing the camera at something evenly white, and bright. Slowly stop down and see if you notice anything. If you do, clean it.

    Shoot well.

    BTW, B&H Photo has all of visible dust's products here in the U.S. so less costly for shipping.
