[QUOTE=eric93se;2077026]If I had a Nikon D80 I wouldn’t be using that crap on my sensor :Z
Get yourself a can of compressed air, they sell mini ones and larger cans.[/QUOTE]
THAT is not crap. No sensor cleaning method is flawless and you wont get a professional results. The clip is not so that you don’t SHOCK the sensor , but it’s to do with creating the opposite charge of the brush once you have pulled any dust off the sensor with the brush, to release the particles.
:Z Just as well you DONT have a Nikon D80, as compressed air is just what you should NOT use on a digital DLR’s sensor. Stick to computers dude Not only is compressed air not pure, but it’s higher pressure (could damage the sensor), and will probably blow any dust particles that are clinging to the side of the shutter release mechanism, straight onto the sensor anyway. That and theres the possibility of getting liquid that comes out of the can onto the sensor. No matter what way you hold the can, theres no 100% way for this NEVER to happen. You can get special air cans for sensor cleaning, but I say again, you are just moving the dust around and not actually removing it from the sensor.
