Excellent tips all, thank you for sharing.
When you are using the Visible Sensor loupe how well does the cover the PL opening? Is it easy to drop into the cavity? If so, how do you prevent it from slipping and hitting the sensor? (Or is it just a matter of being UBER careful.)
The loupe will only be on top of the lens mount and not ever inside, so no way that can be even close to touch the sensor.
If and when the lens mount aperture is larger then the loupe it self it should not be allowed to be go further then the lens mount surface, as the LED's need to have a bit of distance to illuminate the sensor in its entirety.
Thanks Ketch. :) The Youtube video I saw of one of them in use on an DSLR showed it locking onto the mount, but the loupe on B&H looks to be smaller then the aperture of the PL mount- so that got me a little worried. Good to know. :)
Edit: Unfortunately do to the amount of medications I take daily, I have shaky hands, so better careful then sorry :)
I wasn't aware there was a lubriant round Red's olfp that could dissolve and breakdown the seal and of course smear over the sensor?
I always thought residue left on the sensor was a result of impurites in the cleaning fluids. I don't use VisibleDust fluids for this reason.
Now is to note that this is particularly true to Still cameras, so Jarred can elaborate about the RED process and their use of Chamber Lubricant.
On the Sensor swabs usage, can you tell me which fluid you reccomend? There seem to be two types: Eclipse or Eclipse E2?
Or do you prefer a different solution?
