Sensor Cleaning While I Waited

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Dean S. Lautermilch, Jun 28, 2005.

  1. I tried the Scotch Tape method and it did not work very well. It did pick up
    the specs but new ones would appear. I posted some test shots showing the
    'progress'.

    Anyway, I found a local service center (www.sp-ts.com) that cleaned my
    camera for $45 while I waited. My point is there are alternatives to having
    to clean the camera yourself. I would have used this service center first
    had I known they would have done it so fast. I was in and out in less than
    30 minutes. Nobody wants to pack up a camera and be without it for two weeks
    to a month or so.
    I would suggest that route for those who don't want to take a chance with an
    expensive DSLR. Just contact the authorized service centers for your brand
    and ask.

    The question, of course, is "are you happy to pay 45 dollars each time your
    sensor needs cleaning, knowing that this might happen several times a year?"

    My answer is "no, I'm not", therefore out of necessity and possibly
    miserliness, I have learned how to do it myself.

    It's cheap, quick, I don't have to wait, I can do it anywhere and anytime.
