Clean be­yond the cam­era

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

It’s im­por­tant to have a dust-free en­vi­ron­ment be­fore you start clean­ing your sensor. Dust is at­tracted to the build-up of static elec­tric­ity, so open­ing the mir­ror and shut­ter will po­ten­tially at­tract par­ti­cles. Avoid dis­turb­ing too much dust prior to clean­ing the sensor and, of course, don’t do it out­side. Once the sensor is clean, reat­tach the body cap or lens im­me­di­ately. It’s worth re­mem­ber­ing to put the body cap or lens on quickly when shoot­ing on lo­ca­tion, as leav­ing the sensor ex­posed can re­sult in dust end­ing up in­side the cam­era.
