Sensor cover glass cleaning

Sat Sep 10, 2016 8:22 am

Hi!

Been shooting on the beach a lot and the cover glass is starting to get a bit of haze from the breeze salty weather. Been looking around on the proper sensor cover glass cleaning according to ARRI instructions but haven't been able to find a reliable source. Any info around on this subject or on best practices for this procedure??

Thanks!

Hi!

I already read the official pdf you guys linked but I was wondering if there are any specific cleaning swabs for the ALEXA Mini sensor size?

The ones I can find are either APS-C or 35mm fullframe.

Thanks!

Hope that helps!
