Hi guys
Does anybody know a proper way to have a sensor cleaned?
I mean if an electronics/camera technician knew what he was doing, how would
he clean the sensor?  This is from 'sticky' dust stuck to the sensor and
some fine droplets of something.
Thanks for your help!

I have not done it myself, but I saw neat little lense cleaning "pens"
for around $10 at Harvey Normans the other day.

I'd try washing it off with some IPA then a gentle air nozzle to dry it
off. Not sure if the IPA will damage any coatings or coating adhesives
involved....

do that.  worth having a search I reckon

Have done this several times to my S3 over its lifetime. There are right
ways and wrong ways to do it. A very fine lint-free cloth over a rubber
spatula and a few drops of ipa on the blade end works the best for me. A
couple of wipes and any dust and residue are gone. Be sure to shoot a
blank frame (I find that a clear blue sky is the best) and check it for
dust specks and residue marks after cleaning.

You can buy a kit of Eclipse Sensor swabs its a one off clean with each
swab.
