How to Clean Your DSLR Sensor and Mirror
How to clean your Nikon camera sensor
Cleaning the sensor on your Nikon camera is a vital step in preserving its performance. You should perform this regularly to ensure the best possible pictures.
To clean the sensor, first remove the camera’s lens and sensor cover. Disconnect the cable connecting the sensor to the camera body and gently remove the sensor. Then use a soft, lint-free cloth and a small amount of Sensor Solution (available from Nikon) to clean the sensor. Finally, dry the sensor with a paper towel.
How to clean your Nikon camera lens
- Open your camera’s lens cover. CAREFULLY remove the lens cap. Make sure not to touch the lens with your hands – it’s very easy to smear dust and fingerprints all over the lens.
2. Use a soft, lint-free cloth to gently clean the lens surface. Pay particular attention to the corners and edges where dust and fingerprints often accumulate.
3. If necessary, use a lens cleaning kit (available at camera stores and online) to more precisely remove the dust and fingerprints.
4. Replace the lens cap and close the lens cover. Thank your camera for its hard work!
How to clean your Nikon camera viewfinder
Hello everyone! If you’re like most people, you probably take your camera for granted and just shrug when it needs to be cleaned. But trust me, camera lenses and viewfinders can get a little dirty, especially if you’re shooting in dusty or humid environments.
Here’s how to clean your Nikon camera viewfinder:
1. Start by removing any dust or dirt that may be on the surface of the viewfinder.
2. If there’s any liquid or oil on the surface, you’ll need to remove that first. Use a vacuum cleaner to suck up as much of the liquid or oil as possible. Once it’s been cleaned up, use a microfiber cloth to wipe the surface clean.
3. Finally, use a mild cleaner such as camera lens cleaner or glass cleaner to clean the viewfinder lens.
That’s it! Your viewfinder should now be clean and ready to go.
