I know a lot of people are concerned about dust on the CCD's and what they can do about it when the day comes. So, maybe we should have a thread for it. There's a lot of websites around to help with this digital problem, all of them full of disclaimers. So, here's one; What you do to your camera is your fault, so don't blame me or anyone else here if you prod your CCD so hard that you bust it open.
So, what do you do about dust bunnies?
I clean my ccd 's with PEC PADS and Eclipse cleaner, but only when they need it and have had no problems whatsoever. If you know what you're doing it's just routine and, as I said, there's lot's of help out there.
Personally speaking, I found out pretty quickly that blowers just make matters worse, sometimes covering a CCD is twice as much dust as before. Whether it's stuff in the air or rubber dust I'm not sure.
Olympus came up with the ccd-shake which supposedly removes dust. Sounds like a great little invention.
