    Question DSLR sensor cleaning assistance

    Since I frequently change lenses, the sensor of my D5100 has collected a few speckles over the months and now requires cleaning. I, however, have never initiated such an action before. So, I don't know where to get it done. Any suggestions? And estimated time/expenses? I just wanted to see someone doing it in front of me before executing such a sensitive task all by myself (especially with those alcohols, which I suspect will be necessary considering the current state of the sensor.

    By the way, I have googled and watched videos from youtube and have a pretty good idea of what needs to be done. It is just that I am looking for professional assistance to make sure that it goes smoothly for the first time.

    I am hoping for a quick response as I intend to get the cleaning done today. Thanks in advance.

    3 days, 100+ views and nobody seems to have a clue? Anyway, I got the sensor cleaned 3 days back from a shop (Mamun Electronics, to be more precise) in Newmarket. The guy cleaned it using the wooden stick method (tissue tightly wrapped around a wooden stick).

    They charge Tk. 500 for cleaning dust on the low pass filter, and Tk. 3000 if they have to dismantle the camera and clean the filter and sensor individually (which is highly unlikely unless you treat your camera like a piece of junk). Hope it helps anyone going through this thread later on with similar concerns.
