Default Vacuum your sensor

I have a 5 year old battered Nikon D100 with a lot of dirty miles on it. Nikon's service rep told me years ago to never use a bulb because you can drive particles further into the camera. Set your camera to hold the mirror up and hold it upside down over your vacuum hose with your hand keeping the two from getting too close. Just a light seal and let gravity and the vacuum do the work. It will get nearly everything off. You can also get a really good artists brush(they sell them down to nearly single strand) and pick off stuborn particles. Works for me! BFN, Kathryn
