    Have any of you used the Eclips cleaner and Sensor Swabs to clean your
    digital Camera Sensor?

    Is it risky?

  2. Swabs are too flimsy. Use pec-pads and sensor-swipe (search google)
    Yes!

    My philosophy is sensor cleaning is best performed by a reputable camera
    service center.

    I would hate to screw up my DSLR in the process of trying to save a few
    bucks.

    Of course I take great pains to keep dirt and dust out of the camera and
    have not had to clean the sensor in over a year of shooting.

    Yes. All the time.
    No. If directions followed.

    Mahalo for the feed back. I have the items so will give it a try when
    things get . Right now the sensor is clean enough to not cause problems
    but I know it is just a matter of time. I frequently change lens's under
    less than desirable conditions.

  6. Anything involving touching the sensor is risky in some sense. Taking
    your camera out of it's box is risky too. All I can really report
    from personal experience is that I didn't damage my sensor the first
    two times I cleaned it with a swab. That's hardly a big enough sample
    to mean *anything*.

    Neither is as risky as taking a shower, though -- I could replace the
    camera for considerably less than it would cost if I broke my head
    open on the edge of the bathtub; and with a little less luck I might
    *die* (which is at least fairly cheap).
