I'm guilty of never cleaning my Canon EOS 60D, eekk sorry guys! Why? I just don't really know what I'm doing.
So I've carried out the whole exercise where you take a photo of a white wall or white piece of paper to make any dust or dity visible, and I have about 3-4 main dust spots which are visible when you zoom in and of course I think it just needs an overall clean.
I've watched a couple of videos on youtube which has given me a bit more confidence. So my conclusion is:
*Don't use compressed air, but you can use a rocket blower to loosen any dust within the camera as long as the camera is facing down when you do it, so hopefully most of the surface dust will fall out of the camera.
*Manually change your settings so the mirror is up and then use swabs to wipe the entire sensor, and then never use the same swab again.
Is this pretty much the crux of the process? Before I make an attempt I wanted to double check the above is correct and of course, seek any recommendations for the best rocket blowers and cleaning swabs to use?
Oh and lastly, I'm assuming the same swabs are fine to use on the back of the lens?
Apologies if I have posted this in the wrong section, I wasn't sure where to ask
