Why it is important to clean all the parts, not just the sensor?
The following images show how the various components of dust are made. By knowing these components one can determine how to eliminate these sources using scientific methods. The samples are taken from the body of the camera and under the metallic O-ring that attaches the lens to the body.
Using a different Sensor Brush® (8mm for example) other than the one used on the sensor will eliminate the risk of smear or contamination of the sensor as seen in these pictures.
These pictures show us that removing these particles from the camera body and chamber area greatly enhances our safety issue therefore preventing dust fall off onto the sensor. This also shows that cleaning the sensor alone is not an effective method.
Remarkably, we are the only company that has a system that eliminates dust from areas other than the sensor!
