    hello folks. I have a Nikon d7100 in need of a sensor clean. Is it safe to diy it and if so, what do you good folks recommend?

    In the first instance a rocket blower with the shutter on the cleaning setting. It may well dislodge the dust without further action, don't physically touch the sensor though.

    Lots of videos on Youtube showing the standard sensor swab cleaning approach - not sure if I'd want to risk my own first time around. My house is dusty and full of pet hair, even getting screen protectors onto things in my house (when I used to bother trying) is fatal.

    Try just a blower first (not canned air) which is what I expect Nikon recommend. Follow instructions to the letter.

    Thanks guys. I'll try the blower and if that doesn't work I'll take it to jessops for a clean

    I use an "Eyelead". So after a onboard clean, then a blow. I take a shot of a white paper sheet on SD card, check on the TV,(I can plug my card in it, and see were the dust is) finally picking of the suborn spots, with the eyelead. It is a sticky pad with no residue and uses no fluids.
    BUT.... if you are not good at "fine finger work" get it done for you, it is too easy to make things worse.
