Dry vs wet

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

It’s pos­si­ble to get tiny spots of lu­bri­cant on the sen­sor from the ac­tion of the shut­ter mech­a­nism. This can look like dust in your shots but re­mov­ing it needs a dif­fer­ent ap­proach and you’ll prob­a­bly need to re­sort to the tra­di­tional ‘wet clean­ing’ process with a sen­sor swab. This is a soft, ab­sorbent pad­dle that’s made and pack­aged in a dust-free en­vi­ron­ment. They come in both DX and FX widths, so you’ll need to use the right size for your sen­sor. You un­wrap it just be­fore use, then add a cou­ple of drops of sen­sor-clean­ing fluid and drag it lightly across the sen­sor sur­face in one sin­gle move­ment.
