Got Dust and Spots?
Have Jason Clean it for you
All cameras suffer from dust and dirt. Before digital cameras dust on the printed images was touched up by your lab.
With modern Digital SLR cameras the dust is still there however, the dust is stuck to the imaging sensor. This is the heart of the camera and must be treated with great care.
People ask how often should a sensor be cleaned, I answer when its dirty of course !!.
Your sensor is responsible for absorbing the light from your lens. Just like having a clean lens, you also need a clean Sensor!
From as little as $100.00 Jason will not only clean your sensor, but ensure that the chamber is also free from dust. This will help prevent the need for frequent cleaning. So the next time your spending time removing dust from your favourite image. Think of what Jason can do to help you.
So how do keep my sensor clean? Dust is a fact of life, it is everywhere. When changing lenses, first turn your camera off. Face your camera downwards. and ensure you use the dust caps provided with your lens. Its also a good idea to clean your camera bag out once in a while to remove the dirt and dust.
If you have never had your sensor cleaned, don't delay. The longer you leave it the worse it gets. The dust can be very stubborn to remove
Please don't attempt to clean your focus screen, it sits just above your mirror. your will notice dust in this area when you look thought your camera. Because it is up above the mirror the spots you see will not come out on your images. Its just a bit annoying. It generally cost from $50 to replace a screen at the time of a sensor clean.
So whats involved in cleaning an Image sensor. First the outside of the camera is cleaned Then a "before" shot is taken, this will show the location and size of the dust and dirt. The Chamber is cleaned, this is were the dust is located, if this area is not cleaned then your very next shot may move the dust around, and move onto the sensor again. The mirror and focus screen is also inspected for dust and cleaned (if possible) Then the task of cleaning the sensor takes place, this uses many methods to obtain a 99% clean. A final "after" shot is taken to show the removal of dust.
Please remember we require a fully charged battery and one camera lens ready
