    Hi,
    Sorry if this is a off-topic question but I don't follow this group much.
    My problem is dust on the Low-Pass filter, and I don't know
    how to get rid of it without going to Nikon service. I have tried
    to blow the dust with the rubber bulb from a blower brush and
    I did everything that I have read in the magic lantern guides book,
    but nothing from the things they said helped me much :(
    My question is how to get rid of this problem and will I have to
    clean this often?
    Thanks for help,
    Tom

    Nikon in Japan sells a cleaning kit that is rather similar to this, but
    Copper Hill's method is better.

    I just bought one of the kits with the Pecpads and the modified swab (cut
    down Rubbermaid spatula). I haven't had any problems yet, but this seems to
    be the preferred method, and I just wanted to be ready.

    Looks like it should work. Got mine at Fargo Enterprises off the Net. Very
    fast shipping. Good price. If you don't like the instructions that came
    with the kit, there are instructions all over the Net on how to use these
    kits. Just make sure you get the right size swab. I think the recommended
    size for the D70 is 14mm, and you would have to make two passes to cover the
    entire filter. My understanding is if used correctly you can do a better
    job than Nikon, but there is always some risk when you stick anything down
    into your camera.
