Dusty CCD

Dusty CCD

My CCD sensor before cleaning. Dust and stains all over! It was even dirtier before this shot, these are the stains that I wasn’t able to remove with air.

To see how dirty your sensor is, focus to infinity, set aperture to smallest setting and point your camera at a light even source, eg. a white computer monitor.

Clean CCD!

Clean CCD!

I don’t see any dust! I just hope the rubbing alcohol didn’t damage my CCD sensor…

See previous image for the dirty sensor.
