Nothing you can about that no...... If you use Capture NX, then when you get the camera back you can take a Dust Off picture, this will then be used as a reference when prosessing pictures. Doing this regularly can help. Kind regards Nielsen
have to 2nd the motion that the D700 is a dust magnet. For that reason i hardly change lens with my d700 while in the field. Despite of all that, it still go dust in the sensor. Anyway, i'll just use the dust sensor cleaners to take care of that if the blower brush wont work.
I'm not kidding. For zooms that have a large extending movement when you zoom like the 18-200, you can hear the air getting sucked in or blown out if you zoom it quickly. I have read several reports of people complaining about dust inside the lens, and it is typically blamed on this air movement. Also, I am fairly certain that it is possible for air to make it into the mirror box via the slot for the aperture actuation lever.
The problem is that you have more than twice the area of a DX sensor to collect the dust. An occasional blow with a Giotto Rocket usually solves the problem, but my D700 has been much better about dust than my D3, primarily because of the built-in cleaner. It's not perfect, but it handles some things that would require other methods with the D3.
Sorry to hear you are having more trouble with dust in your D700 than in previous cameras. I must have had my D700 for 8 months or so and use it daily with a wide variety of lenses. I picked up the new type cleaning solution to be ready to wet clean the sensor but haven't had to yet. I occasionally see a dust spot in a blue sky picture but since I use the in-camera cleaning, they actually go away. I also blow it out occasionally. I had to wet clean my D70, my D200 and my D2x far more often.
So far I am a big fan of the in-camera cleaning system. I was not expecting it to actually work.
Well - I was Praying to the "Prophet" while roaming the desert today and shot a few frames from the top of the Tuwaiq Escarpment (96 km northwest of Riyadh on the way to Sadous - known as the "Edge of the World" to the expat community).
After getting home this evening I noticed that I have several spots in the upper left corner of the sensor. These are some of the first frames I shot really stopped down (f11+) - they show up nicely against the blue sky. Never really looked for them before and never noticed either.
But hey - I live in the desert! So I would expect to see this to a certain degree, even with the occasional blower cleaning.
Looking at the sensor under a light I really can't see any dust particles clinging to it so maybe a wet cleaning will do the trick.
It is still worth it, even if you go to two bodies, to have the FX series bodies.
