    Hi guys
    Does anybody know a proper way to have a sensor cleaned?
    I mean if an electronics/camera technician knew what he was doing, how would
    he clean the sensor? This is from 'sticky' dust stuck to the sensor and
    some fine droplets of something.
    Thanks for your help!

    I have not done it myself, but I saw neat little lense cleaning "pens"
    for around $10 at Harvey Normans the other day.

    I'd try washing it off with some IPA then a gentle air nozzle to dry it
    off. Not sure if the IPA will damage any coatings or coating adhesives
    involved....

    I would be very surprised if there wasn't a utube video showing how to
    do that. worth having a search I reckon
