Sensor cleaning: Eclipse vs. Tape. The results

I read this thread at DPChallenge and thought it was worth sharing.

Sensor cleaning: Eclipse vs. tape. The results

The key is the type of tape used for cleaning the sensor. It appears that Scotch Magic Tape is the best and Scotch Matte Finish Magic Tape by 3M to be more specific.

I would not be putting any type of sticky or scotch tape anywhere near my sensor!

There are several highly regarded photographers at DPChallenge posting in that thread saying they use tape (the OP being one of them). When I find the right tape, I will be giving it a try myself.

By far, THE best dry cleaning method I've found for dry cleaning a sensor.
