Get yourself a proper
(£10) and some
(£4). Use the blower to clean out the inside of the camera (around the mirrorbox), drop a small amount of ROR fluid onto a PEC pad and carefully wipe the focusing screen.
Would it be safe to use the POR fluid and PEC pads to clean the actual sensor?
Ive tried surgical swabs and a little Vodka in my old Dynax 5D, did no harm, but I thought after it was a trifle stupid.
What do you reckon.
