I use a product by Photographic Solutions. web page The cleaning solution is cheap but the swabs aren't. (sold seperatly) You can probably pick them up at your local photography supply house.

I've used their product succesfully on my S-1, but you will have to refer to you users manual for the D100 for instructions. GG's kcdave (Missouri Photographer) has a D100 and uses this product to clean his.

Good luck.

Here's a couple articles that approximate what I've been doing. http://www.nikondigital.org/articles/ccd_cleaning.htm , http://www.bythom.com/cleaning.htm Finding a clean enviroment to do it in is essential. Not a easy thing when you live in a tent in the desert. I've been using a modified plastic fork (tynes removed and all edges radiused) with a pecpad wrapped over it and attached with a elastic band, I wear surgical gloves (powder free) to minimize the chance of contaminaiting the pad. Be sure to clean the mirror and AF sensor at the same time. I do it twice, before cleaning the CCD and again after, to avoid dragging muck in from the mirror box. A good external cleaning and dusting of the exterior of the camera should be done before starting, as well as look for crap in the lens mount when you first remove the lens or body cap.

You people absolutely amaze me!!!!! The CCD on any digital camera is a delicate and expensive item and to be cleaning it with a plastic fork or q-tips is insanity and asking for an expensive repair job.

The Nikon Manual for the D100 clearly spells out the procedures for cleaning the CCD. First, you need to have the Nikon D100 AC adapter which is a bit expensive but if a couple of people own the D100 they can split the cost between them and rotate the use of the adapter.

Once you have the adapter you need to follow very carefully the directions in the Nikon D100 manual. The procedure is more like a degaussing than an actual scrubbing.

I will be having nightmares tonight after reading this posting but at least it isn't my D100 body that is getting ruined.

....simple compressed air. Set the shutter to bulb, and aggresively used the compressed air, being careful not to get fluid in there. Took the precaution of cleaning it upside down, with the lens hole facing the ground, letting gravity assist. This was recommended on the Nikon site. Clean as a whistle.

Adversely, I know a photog who sent his Canon to be cleaned "professionally" and they left streaks on his CCD.

So, um, are you then insinuating that an untrained "professional" could not get favorable or even superior results cleaning their own CCD by seeking the advice of the THOUSANDS of photographers on this forum who have probably done it numerous times? I also don't see any mention in the original post of using a plastic fork or Q-tip. Was this an attempt at humor? A tongue-in-cheek statement perhaps? Not sure. It just seems more like a slap in the face to "you people" and to Jim in particular as being one who will surely bring to ruin his D100 CCD because he's not a "professional" and has to resort to a "coat hanger in the alleyway" type of surgery for his ailing camera. Just my perception of the post. If I'm wrong, I apologize.

Good day.

Mike
