Dust in Sensor

In one of my recent trips I have end up having some dust in my sensor and my attempts to clean this had caused more damage than help. I tried the local canon service center but they would not help as my EOS 350 D is too old and is no longer supported. The only option that seems left out for me is to go for a new camera. I also visited the canon store to check out some new camera, I liked Canon 5D MarkIII and Canon 6D but this is going to burn a huge hole in my pocket. I am sure this is not only going... continue reading

Beware - the dust!

Drawing a picture, I encountered a small problem. My graphic tablet started working disgusting. The cursor moves erratically and at times graphic tablet disconnected completely. I was furious after 15 minutes! Replacing the battery did not help. Reconnect to different terminals usb lead to the same result. Indicator tablet showed interruptions in the voltage usb ports. I remembered that about six months is not cleaned my computer from the accumulated dust, since dust may create a spurious connection... continue reading

Sensor Cleaning

Most of the photography blogs that I read have a thread about sensor cleaning. It's the bane of digital cameras. While computers and digital imaging have opened up an amazing new world of vision for us, it's also given photographers some new frustrations. I can't remember ever being so frustrated by dust on the lens or mirrors of my old Canon A1. The occasional inexpensive cleaning and tuneup at my local camera shop always took care of the problem. All my old Canons from the late 70s and early 80s... continue reading

Keeping It Clean

I recently completed a photo shoot for a client that was on a tight schedule. They had purchased some discounted ad space with a fast approaching "deadline for materials" date and wanted a photo that was fresh. After the main subject is selected, I try to get the best product sample that is available. In this case, my subject was a piece of metal industrial hardware. Being that their warehouse was on site, I select the best piece available with regards to cosmetics. The reality of some industrial... continue reading

This entry is for all the photographers out there who have had to deal with my biggest photo phobia:DUST.Sometimes, dust doesn't raise its ugly head.When I've got an intricate subject and vivid colors, it can find lots of places to hide.On the other hand, half my photos have a big chunk of blue sky.Each and every time I scrutinize one of these shots, I find those annoying blurs and blobs.So, my question is:What do you do about dust?I've read a million how-tos on the... continue reading

My favourite sensor dust technique

I only clean my DSLR sensor when I am at home. Sometimes, when I'm on a long trip and I change lenses very often and there can be some irritating sensor spots on my photos.At home, it takes some time to find all the sensor spots and "heal" them. Sometimes I don't see one and I have to adjust it later. My tip:At the END of your journey (the moment you have collected the maximum amount of dust on your sensor), shoot one photo of the sky with a small diaphragm (F10 or smaller). At home, import... continue reading
