Hi, any advice on cleaning the sensor on this camera. I have several marks on my images which only appear at certain apertures and look almost as if fine water droplets are on it. Any recommended bits of kit?

I bought This as a starter and still use them along with pec pads and glue sticks!!
Black and Decker with wire brush attachment should do the trick.
All I have ever done is as per the instructions in the book and used a 'puffer' brush with the brush removed to just blow air on to the sensor.

That reminds me of when
The Queen goes to visit some war wounded in hospital. Three sorry looking men languish in their beds. The officer accompanying her directs her to the first man.
"What's he in here for?" asks the queen.
"Hemmorhoids Ma'am!" the officer roars.
"Oh, that's awful. What's the treatment?"
"Wire brush and dettol Ma'am!" the officer bellows.
"Oh, that must be painful!"
She questions the wincing soldier.
"If you had one wish, what would that be?"
"To return to the front and fight for my country Ma'am!" he shouts.
"And what about this chap?" she asks the officer, who leads her to the second wounded man.
"And what's his treatment?"
"Wire brush and dettol Ma'am!"
"Oh how nasty... poor man's willy must be in tatters! If you had one wish, what would that be?"
"To return to the front and fight for my country Ma'am!" the soldier yells.
The officer leads her on to the last soldier, explaining that he suffers from tonsillitis.
"Oh, how horrible. And if you had one wish young man, what would that be?" she asks.
In a hoarse whisper, he replies, "To get the wire brush and dettol before those filthy bastards!"
That is definitely a blast from the past Andy
Did you get the advice you wanted?
Thanks everyone, might try the wire brush Malcolm but Black & Decker? mmm think I'll go for Dewalt as it's an expensive camera so I want good quality wire...Keith
