That is the actually soiled sensor on my ~5 yr outdated Sony A6000 that is often been utilized in considerably excessive situations, however I am often fairly cautious whereas switching lenses. I’ve solely cleaned the sensor with an air blower previously.
So I clicked an image of a vibrant white wall (30mm, f16, 1 sec, ISO 100) and maxed out the ‘Spot Elimination —> Visualize Spots‘ setting in Lightroom. This was taken after I removed seen mud utilizing a easy air blower.
I’ve by no means carried out this it the previous, but when it will be sufficient to scrub the sensor properly, ought to I be trying to scrub it with the sensor cleansing swabs that you just get on Amazon? I ideally do not need to drop it off at a digicam retailer (I am not too trusting, plus it will value round 5 instances as a lot on the couple of locations I’ve requested).
Any recommendations on utilizing the sensor cleansing swabs are greater than welcome – e.g. moist vs dry swabs; alcohol based mostly cleansing answer vs easy distilled water, and so forth.)
