How to clean the sensor?

Postby Rogerxnz » Mon Oct 15, 2012 8:01 am

I still have no instructions for my Credo 60.

So, what is the recommended cleaning method?

Air blower to remove loose dust and then isopropyl alcohol applied with the swipes supplied with the back?

Thank you, Ulf.

Do the Credo sensors (strictly, the IR filters) have different cleaning requirements or kit from the Phase One sensors? Why does the Credo kit only include wipes and tweezers which are impossible to cover the sensor in one pass (unlike the paddle shown in your kit)?

Most of the commentators from the Luminous Landscape forum suggest using isopropyl alcohol only. Is the two-solution approach shown in the video only required for Phase One backs?

Confusing!

HI, This solution can be used on all Leaf, Mamiya and Phase One backs.
I can only presume it would work with all cameras for fitted with a IR filter, but as always legal reasons prevents me from actually saying so :D

Solution A is for cleaning extreme dirt of the filter.
If you simply have some small dirt you can try first by only using Solution B which is a form of alcohol.
If this does not work you might have to use solution A, but note that it takes a while to clean up this solution with solution B.

A different one liquid type of solution is http://www.visibledust.com/products3.php?pid=301
