Holy CCD Jihad, Batman!

OK, so maybe it’s not quite as bad as all that, but just try looking at sites that talk about cleaning the sensor in your spiffy new digital SLR. You’d think that every person out there is selling snake oil and promising to cure cancer.

So what prompted this line of investigation? Today, I got a note directed at all the DLWS attendees from Moose Peterson, and in it, he included a list of things to make sure to bring along. One was a cleaning kit for your sensor.

A little investigation, and I’ve discovered that the vendors claim theirs are the best, and that all the rest are trash. 🙂 Even the users and endorsers of the products are very siloed.

For me, I think it’s the kit from the Copperhill folks. It seems like it covers all the bases, and it makes sense to me. I suppose I can’t do much better than that!
