  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Looking to clean the sensor on my Panasonic G7 as it is showing signs in images at higher fstops and I can visually see something on the sensor. Tried a rocket blower but isn't shifting. Going to buy a sensor swab kit and try a wet clean but unsure on what size to get as there seems to vary. Anyone any ideas?

    And any recommendations?

    I can't advise on swabs but since my DSLR days I've used Eclipse fluid and Pec Pads and they seem to work well.

    What I do is wrap a Pec Pad around a slice cut from an old credit card, tape it in place and then add a drop of fluid, wait a couple of seconds for any excess to evaporate and then carry out the clean. The theory is that the plastic credit card slice will flex and prevent me applying any real pressure and thus minimise the chance (already unlikely) of any scratching.

    I've cleaned all of my cameras since my Canon DSLR days like this and I've never had a problem.
