DSLRClean Sensor cleaning stick

Lots of talk on here about swabs, I assume these are the type of cleaners that require the use of fluid!

The question was regarding the NEW product DSLRClean Sensor cleaning stick . Has anyone used these please?

As mentioned further up the thread there appears to be supply problems so I doubt if any one has them to try!! I have just recieved a reply to my mail. The guy answering has been in hosbital and so nothing has been shipped!! The backlog should be cleared by the 26th. It would be worth you waiting until somebody else tries before ordering. This in light of the fact he has a backlog so you wouldn't get it for a week or so anyway. I will post when have tried them.

cheers

Jeez, the instructions say that DSLRClean will feel sticky in use, and it definitely does (I had quite a bit of trouble getting the swab to move around the CCD).

Well, they seem to work. Although, I still have two specks on the sensor (one won't budge, but the other has moved). I have a cleaner sensor now (not perfect, but I don't mind a bit of "healing" in PS).

" Anyone else tried THESE yet?"

Aren't they the ones that started this thread?

I think that Adrian is just bumping this thread back up to gain more exposure.

Yes they are the ones I started the thread with Frank, but it had drifted to other cleaners at one stage, the link was to avoid any confusion.

I have had a play about with my new 20D and I have noticed a dark round 'spot' at the top of all my images. This 'spot' can be seen in the same place through the viewfinder. Does this sound like dust on the sensor? I have tried different lenses and still it appears.

Help!

If you can see the spot in your viewfinder as well as the photos, then it must be on the lens, not the sensor or mirror.

That is not possible. It appears in the SAME place on all my lens so it has to be the sensor.

If the spot is on the images, it sounds like dust on the sensor. If the spot is visible through the viewfinder, it sounds like dust on the focussing screen. If you can see a spot in the images and in the viewfinder, you probably have dust on both the sensor and the focussing screen.
