Another Copperhill question!

The other day i was doing extensive research on camera sensor cleaning ie i looked at couple of web pages. I understand all information and am more than happy carrying out the procedure. However i did come across a page that gave me indepth details on how to create the actual swipe, and this is what i wanted to have a go at....but i have lost the page or it has been removed.
Can anyone point me to a web page that tells me how to create the swipe (i mean the bit you wrap the pad around, not the way in which you wrap the pad around).

This would be most helpful, as i don't have my bookmarks to hand as i am away at the mo, and i can't find the info on this again anywhere!

TIA!

Re: Another Copperhill question!

Thanks Stepheno, but i was meaning how to make the thing the pec-pad wraps around...the sensor swipe, not how to wrap the pec pad around. I thought the original images were on the site you mentioned, but i can't find them anywhere!

Re: Another Copperhill question!

Sorry lolyton....misunderstood. I bought the swipe as part of a pack from Chili-Pixs. I suppose you could cut one from a suitable piece of plastic but you'd need to be wary of sharp edges etc. Also you need to consider the width required for your sensor.

When i first bought a sensor cleaning kit, I got 10 of the swipes, pre-wrapped, a bottle of Eclipse and a packet of Pec*Pads. I have kept the swipes so that I can put a Pec*pad on and re-use. This is very easy to do as shown in the site as linked by Steve.

I saved about 5 of them and I really don't need that many. I'll keep a couple back for my own use but I am perfectly happy to let a couple or three go to good homes. These swipes, when wrapped with a Pec*pad, are the perfect size for a Canon sensor on any camera that has a 1.6x factor. it will also be absolutely fine for cameras like Nikon D80/D200 and stuff.

So, if anyone wants one to wrap their own sensor cleaner (NB I am NOT sending a pec*ped as I don't have enough to spare but these are very cheap and easy to buy), I will happily let you have one if you pay the postage. If you want one, drop me an email and I'll give you my address. Send me a stamped and addressed envelope (normal size is fine, they are not big nor heavy) and I'll pop one in the post to you.

Like I said, the max I can let go is three so this is on a first-come first-gets basis!

Cheers,
Rob

Perfect Steve, thanks a heap. That is the web-site i have bookmarked back home. Serves me right for not having a bookmark storage service on the internet, or bringing the laptop with us.

Cheers for that!!

Thanks Rob, but i'm not in one place long enough to wait for postage. Offer much appreciated and i'm sure plenty of others will take you up on it (if they don't they should, will save them some pennies). Also i have a Canon and without looking i can't remember if it's the same size as the Nikon...probably is though 1.6 sounds about right.

Generous of you, thanks!

Sorry, think you must have misread my post, these are the size for Canon, I just mentioned that they would be fine for Nikon as well. I am a Canon user and these were bought for a Canon 20D :o)

Just wanted to clear that up in case anyone who wanted one for Canon felt these were not the right ones.

Cheers,
Rob
