A couple of things to remember is: don’t put too much fluid on the sensor swab. CLEANING Fluids – are usually composed of mixtures of pure alcohol, usually methanol, but may contain ethanol and isopropyl alcohol.

Should I clean my camera sensor myself?
You can’t always rely on new technology to assure you of a clean digital camera sensor. With a self-cleaning sensor, you may not need to clean your sensor as often, but it still needs to be cleaned manually every once in a while to ensure that it’s completely dust-free.
How do I know if my camera sensor is dirty?
Dust on the camera sensor can be quickly identified from the following:
- The size and visibility of the dust particles will change as you change lens aperture.
- Dust particles will always appear in the same spots.
- Sensor dust can never be seen through the viewfinder, it only shows up in images.
Customise your shooting experience at the touch of a button with the Fn (function) button. You can set up your Nikon DSLR so your favourite setting is selectable simply by pressing the Fn button – usually located on the front of the DSLR.
Pressing the Pv button during viewfinder photography stops lens aperture down to the current value, allowing depth of field to be previewed as long as the button is kept pressed. Optional flash units compatible with the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS) will emit a modeling flash.
When should I clean my camera sensor?
So how often should you clean your sensor? The quick answer is – whenever you need it. If you take your camera out for a spin every day or once a week and switch lens regularly then you might have to do it once a month. If you are the occasional photographer then perhaps every few months or so.

Can I use lens cleaner on my camera sensor?
Just use one or two drops of the cleaning fluid on either side of the sensor, and then give it a gentle but firm stroke from one side of the sensor to the other. Don’t go wiping it all over and back and forth.
