I'm just about to clean the annoying extra spots off my DMK


 


It normally takes at least 3 attempts before I get them or move them to the side enough


 


Cotton buds Wonder fluid and blower in hand


 


I could be some time


 


 


if I'm not back by morning send out the dogs to find me

I can't rember which one it was, but one of December's astro mags had an article on how to clean the chip. This used Frog tape! I have no idea what frog tape is but it appears to work very well.

I would have thought the adhesive might be a problem but its worth a go if I or anybdy can find some

B&Q stock it, it's painters tape (I saw it on the weekend when I was getting some Gaffer tape ..... NOT for CCD cleaning I hasten to add :lol: )

Looks like my camera has picked something up somehow, going to have to do the same to mine, although luckily for me I've got special cleaning pads I can 'borrow'(steal) from my dad :D
