Re: Sensor cleaning

Ray, certainly Warehouse Express indicate Type 5 for your EOS 400D. It is type 1 for my EOS 20D and I bought them from WE and they have been fine. Just cleaned my sensor a few days ago.

Re: Sensor cleaning

Right paul i just rang them, the guy i spoke to gave me some jargon about canon sensors being a tad smaller than nikon he also said that type 1 and type 5 are the same size pads, so hes going to seek advice from a supervisor and ring me back

Re: Sensor cleaning

The sensor is the same size on the 400D and the 20D/30D/etc, so I don't understand why they are recommending Type 5 rather than Type 1. I think it would be worth a phone call or e-mail.

Re: Sensor cleaning

what i dont understand is why you are cleaning the sensor on the 400D anyway when it has a sensor cleaner inbuilt?

Re: Sensor cleaning

Because stupid me changed a lens with the camera switched onand it sucked half of our living room inwell a lot of dust anyway, but thats not the point, warehouse express are selling the wrong size of pad, did you read there advert, they promised they would ring me back and they didnt, that to me says a lot about them

I did not know that this made a difference. I have never thought about turning the camera of when changing lenses. I will be more careful now.

Static is a powerful force and then there is the effect of things like pollen which is sticky.......

Changing lenses, battery packs and cards all contribute to the dust equation - and a switched on sensor will tend to be more electrostatcally charged than one that is off

Re: Sensor cleaning

Fiona, the built in sensor cleaner does reduce the amount of dust, but doesn't irradicate it, you still need to remove the odd few bits.
