dSLR sensor cleaning

I found this link very useful to instruct a self-cleaning sensor method.

Remove dust from dSLR camera lenses

(inspired by this discussion )

I bought my equipment from internet and it was second hand. The 18-70 nikon kit lens had some annoying dust inside, so I've decided to investigate if it was possible to clean it. And it was!


The tricky part was to file the shape of the nails so that they can enter into the narrow space of the front part of the lens. I'm not sure if my tool is the best result (it should only be one piece of wood, but my had broken too many times...), but it worked. Actually, with two "active" nails, and only one in the middle, the two mobile pieces of wood can change the diameter of the tool (tricky, isn't it?) if you think to use it on different lenses. I hope you can make it ;)

Be aware! I've scratch the lens a little, you have to be very careful, especially when you open the lens for the first time. You can use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust.

It is your responsibility for all these operations, of course :D
