Salam be hamegi,

Sensor of my DSLR got dusty just after a few months of purchase. Since it is less than 2 yrs I can ship it to the company to get cleaned free. This can happen again after a while and since it is a costy service I was looking for a safe way to clean it myself.

Have you ever tried to clean your sensor? Is it too risky? I think that would be helpful for evryone to share our experience in here.

I found this video in youtube, but not sure how much I can trust it:

Your best bet is to buy a visibledust.

Some people dare to clean their sensors with a cotton swab and pure alcohol, but I haven't taken the risk yet!
My camera sensor seem to be picking up some dust that I can't get off with my manual blower, so I'm kind of frustrated.

I'll let you know if did it, but it won't be anytime soon!
Good luck!

Thanks for your comments. I might try Hamed's suggestion... I checked the website and it looks good.

But any solution I will try I would post it here. I know it is a popular problem and it would be useful for others as well.

Finally I chose the safest way (the most expensive one) and sent it to a repair shop to get it clean.

But here is some tips to share:

1- Be sure to turn off your camera before removing the lens as the static electricity on the sensor can attract dusts.

2- Hold your camera face down during changing the lens.

3- Always be sure that there is no dust on the rear side of your lens before you attach it to the camera body.

4- Don’t replace your lens where is a risk of dust in air.

5- Vacuum inside of your camera case every often to keep it free of dust.
