I just did mirror flip up and squeezed the Giottos air blower onto the sensor, and I did not see any decrease in amount of dust. I suspect their statically charged onto the sensor?

There are certain swabs you can use.. GoneTomorrow linked them recently for me, but I won't use them unless my sensor ends up looking like yours did. I dont know why though, when I google the swabs and your body, I dont come up with many hits (whereas if I google Canon + sensor cleaning swabs) I get the ones that GT listed, and quite a few more).

Maybe try something like this? http://www.amazon.com/LensPEN-LP-1-Lens-Cleaning-System/dp/B000KO0GY6/ref=pd_rhf_dp_shvl1 -- JUST MAKE SURE you get the sensor version. Do you actually physically see the dust on the sensor?

Also, sorry for the ignorance, but does the D7000 have a self-cleaning sensor? I feel like it's kind of unlikely that much movable dust (i.e. cleanable with a blower) would accumulate, unless you're shooting neck deep in top soil and changing your lenses with no hands (not a dig on you, just an observation. Also, use of the word dig = happy coincidence).

This is what Bernie is referring to:
http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Survival-KIT-Sensor-Eclipse/dp/B000PNGM18
(also available directly http://www.photosol.com/store/pc/home.asp but it's pricier than Amazon)

I have the same kit, but a type 3 since I have a full frame camera. For your D7000, you'll want the kit with type 2 swabs, which is what I've linked. It does a pretty good job IMO and should get most if not all the dust off your sensor.

As for your dust situation, you must have allowed moisture inside. Some particles, pollen especially, will stick like glue to your sensor with moisture present.

If all else fails, you can send it off to Nikon to be cleaned, or try the Copperhill kits (haven't used them, but they're another big name in sensor cleaning; they're also more expensive).

This.

It's what I did and it worked great. No need to buy expensive sensor swabs.

dont use mirror lock up with a blower, you potentially risk shocking the sensor, there should be a cleaning mode where u will keep the shutter open. then flip teh camera upside down and blast it with a rocket blower a couple of times.

Ive had some dust problems on my a900 and it took a few blast of air to clear out a little but i still have some of the larger chunks on there. if you really cant stand the dust then get your sensor cleaned. should cost about 60 bucks if you take it to a camera shop.

for 20 bucks, you might as well just buy what GT linked instead of breathing on it + Qtip....

I'm looking to purchase 5dmII in the coming months primarily for its video capabilities. I currently have a d80 with the 18-55mm kits lens with only a 1888 shutter count. Would there be a reason for me to keep this nikon if I'm going to be getting a full-frame canon? How much do you think I could get for it? Where should I sell it?

1) do you plan to record professional quality video for the purpose of commercial usage or feature length cinema or do you just want video to have and dont need cinema quality and arent a professional videographer
2) if the answer to question #1 is "no, i am not doing paid video work" then get a nikon with video instead unless you just have no preference.

nikon is just as good for general purpose video. while a 5DmkII is great and is also full frame when it comes to strictly video the effect you see from having FF over crop sensor honestly is just the FOV from lenses. for general use you will not see an improvement in quality of the 5DmkII video over say a T3i assuming you are using lower end consumer priced lenses. and even with Canon L lenses honestly most people can not tell the difference in video between the 2 especially when viewed on youtube. the video quality itself is about the same all around. i do say the 5DmkII is a much nicer camera than a t2i or T3i or 7D and will be much more pleasant to work with if you also plan on shooting stills as well. as far as video goes if you dont specifically need a full frame camera and just want it because everyone says full frame is better than i suggest something cheaper since the quality of the video itself will be about the same honestly.

and by about the same i mean having joe shmo try and tell the difference between FF and crop as well as video between 5DmkII and T2i


also on a side not my Epson V500 has been delivered and i am picking it up at my parents house while on the way to see red hot chilli peppers. im sure its been sitting in the sun since 10am but at least its a scanner and not something that is sensitive to heat biggrin.gif
