D70 built in dust shocker

Just inside the body/lens mount is a strip of black felt-like material. If you gently place a piece of sellotape over this and lift it away you will find hundreds if not thousands of dust and felt hair particles that would have eventually found their way onto the CCD. Since doing this my CCD has been virtually free of dust/dirt.


I have also a lot of trouble with dust on the CCD. Just with a little air of the compressor (gently) and it is gone. The problem is that I see it when I view photo's in the computer. So a lot of Photoshopping, to clean it.
Do you mean the soft tissue at the bottom? And remove the lose 'hairs' of that tissue! Or remove the tissue completely?
