How to clean the camera sensor?

1.First of all, we usually keep the sensor as clean as possible.

(1) Choose a relatively cleaner place to replace the camera lens, make sure that the lens hole is straight and narrow, and use a hair dryer to blow out the dirt inside the lens.

(2) Pay attention to keep the camera bag clean.

2.It is also necessary to take the camera to the store for professional cleaning on a regular basis.

3.First of all, we have to make it clear that no camera manufacturer will suggest you to clean the sensor yourself. The situation mentioned here means that you do not have the economic conditions, or you are unwilling to spend so much money on regular professional maintenance.

4.Clean the sensor with a cotton swab. The first step is to choose a cleaning cotton swab of a suitable size. Different types of cameras often have different sensor sizes. The size of the cotton swab should naturally be selected according to the sensor size of your camera.

5.Then, remove the lens from the camera.

6.Expose you sensors. When doing this step, we need to lock the lens that covers the sensor, and related operations can generally be found in the menu options of the camera.

7.Put a few drops of detergent on the cotton swab to ensure that all sides of the cotton swab are soaked. Remember to cover the lid in time after using the cleaner to avoid evaporation.

8.Hold the camera with several fingers, and gently wipe the surface of the sensor with a cotton swab. Note that the cotton swab rod should have a certain degree of toughness, so that it is not easy to damage the camera components; do not use too many fingers when grasping the camera, so as not to cause too much pressure on the camera, generally we recommend using 3 fingers to grasp grip.

9.When you have finished wiping the sensor in one direction, flip the swab over and use the other side to continue wiping in the opposite direction.

10.When you’re done wiping, throw the swab away. Do not reuse it to avoid damage to the sensor.

11.Let it stand for 1-2 minutes. After the sensor dries naturally, put the lens back into the camera and adjust the relevant settings. Take a picture of the sky again to see if the desired cleaning effect has been achieved. If there are still stains, repeat the above steps.
