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.

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
