#25. "RE: If not Lubricant…then what?" In response to In response to 23 Sat 24-Dec-11 11:18 PM by TheDraftsman
I have the same issue and I can say I am glad I'm not the only one.
I shoot RAW and use Aperture 3 enough said as far as getting rid of these spots that show up on my photos and living with this issue until I clean the filter again.
I was annoyed that after I cleaned my sensor filter, the spots would show up again after a few hundred shots.
I was even theorizing that the actual act of activating the in camera sensor cleaning made it worse by of some kind of static charge on to the sensor!!!
BTW: Pentax O-ICK1 is the way to go in cleaning this stuff off your sensor filter, after I saw a Leica tech use it to clean a M9 filter, I was convinced that is what you need. Not a fan of wet cleaning at all.
My theory is, over time this is all going to go away if it is a lubricant!!! It's just going to get worked out over time.
