Until they invent seagull nappies I will never be a fan of seagulls.

You need to get your sensor cleaned Mosti?
Ha ha!

No, I just haven't gotten around to sending it off to Nikon to have the sensor cleaned. I think it may be lubricant, since it has a sensor vibration cleaner.

Are you selecting 'clean now' though? Sending it to NY is unnecessary, either find a bricks and mortar camera store who will do it or buy the wet cleaning products yourself. Visible Dust is the leader.

Cleaning it yourself will depend on the camera you own. Personally, I wouldn't clean the sensor on my Nikon D3, but like Lucy says, decent camera service agents will sort it out cheaper than Nikon.

I do the clean manually, and have it set to clean when the camera turns on too. It is not dust. I might look for a shop, but the only authorized shop is an hour away. the cleaning product is about the same price as having Nikon do it with out the risk of my screwing it up. I've read good and bad about local shops in general...

Yeah, I have a D3s. I think Nikon charges $60

I don't believe clean at startup actually does anything. If you compare it with the clean now option the camera displays a message and is obviously busy.

$60 doesn't sound a bad deal to me!
Ha ha!
