In one of my recent trips I have end up having some dust in my sensor and my attempts to clean this had caused more damage than help. I tried the local canon service center but they would not help as my EOS 350 D is too old and is no longer supported. The only option that seems left out for me is to go for a new camera. I also visited the canon store to check out some new camera, I liked Canon 5D MarkIII and Canon 6D but this is going to burn a huge hole in my pocket. I am sure this is not only going to burn my pocket but the whole pant too..
This left me wondering the (D)SLRs are usually designed to support multiple lens and while one is travelling its hard to find a dust free environment to change the lens. Why wouldn't Camera manufactures keep this mind and have a protective layer of glass between the lens opening and the sensor. Wiping this off would be more easier than touching the sensors which are more delicate in nature.
I am sure a lot of you here would have faced similar challenges and I would like to hear out from you guys how you manage to tackle this issue. I guess your response would help me be careful the new camera and also to many out there who would be benefited.
