This question already has an answer here:
I have two particles on the sensor of my Sony a6000. Both are round and about 0.3 mm in diameter.
The spots are only noticeable in bright areas and are easy to remove with Capture One's spot removal tool.
I looked up ways to clean my sensor and tried these:
- Blowing the particles carefully away with a hand blower
- Using the built-in clean mode
The particles didn't budge, though. I have thought about using a swab after reading about that but I'm anxious about damaging my sensor.
Am I safe to touch my sensor lightly with a swab to remove these particles?
