Sensor cleaning kit for M4/iii?

I recently ordered a sensor cleaning swab kit to use for my FF Canon 6d and haven’t plant anyone who sells a kit with a swab designed for M4/3.  I estimate I could just trim a swab down, but that might brand the swab rougher on the edges.  Regardless, what products have people constitute compatible for cleaning the sensor on a micro four thirds system.  Thanks!

Re: Sensor cleaning kit for M4/3?

Most advice over the years has been to non affect the sensor as it very rarely needs any attention other than, equally suggested, a little rocket blower puff or two.

I guess I could only trim a swab downwardly, but that might make the swab rougher on the edges. Regardless, what products accept people found compatible for cleaning the sensor on a micro four thirds arrangement. Cheers!

I was advised (by Oly rep) not to try and contact make clean an IBIS sensor myself (though I had done this many times on DSLR sensors) every bit in consequence the sensor is floating – too much pressure could harm the system. Go information technology done professionally.

This wouldn’t apply to a non-IBIS sensor, and tin can see no reason why it can’t be treated if required like a DSLR sensor.

The rocket blower and self cleaning mechanism are all very well, only there are certain types of dust that just don’t respond (sticky pollen).

Although sensor grit problems are much rarer these days, they do occur. I guess that the demand is too low for anyone to produce a correctly sized swab. Cutting one down is non advised considering then the edges are unsealed and could go out tiny fragments of the swab material behind. All the same, information technology may be that this is worth the risk to become rid of a stubborn spot, equally whatever residue fibres may exist more easily treated with a blower.

I was brash (by Oly rep) not to effort and contact clean an IBIS sensor myself (though I had done this many times on DSLR sensors) as in event the sensor is floating – besides much pressure could damage the arrangement. Get it done professionally.

This wouldn’t apply to a non-IBIS sensor, and tin can see no reason why it can’t be treated if required similar a DSLR sensor.

So this would be for a Panasonic GX7 that does take some more limited course of IBIS I believe.  I hadn’t considered that variable in all of this.

I’ve haad to wet make clean my GX7. I used Simply Type ii sensor swabs (17mm). These are usually aimed at APS-C cameras but are also the correct size for m4/3. Other 17mm swabs I would expect to be fine.
