Nikon D3X Sensor Debris

Nikon D3X Sensor Debris

Had a Nikon D3X handed to me today for a Sensor Clean, and it’s probably one of the dirtiest I have had the pleasure of cleaning to date, the debris was well and truly caked on, this one was not a job for the faint-hearted I have to say! :o)
View Large to see the dirt encountered.
If your not aware of how to check your sensor for dirt/debris then follow the instructions below…

Set your Camera up with an aperture of say f/18, set the lens to manual focus, and shoot a clean white background out of focus, view and magnify all areas of the picture on the Camera LCD or view large on a Computer to see any blemishes on the Sensor.

Depending on Lens Changes and the Environment I have been shooting in, I tend to Clean my Sensor once or twice a year as I’m a bit dust fussy! 😉

Oh and btw, this Camera is for sale, if anyone is interested then let me know and I’ll pass on the owners details.
.
Thanks to those who look and take the time to comment, it’s very much appreciated.

Milky Way

Milky Way

The Milky Way is the galaxy that contains our Solar System. The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy some 100,000–120,000 light-years in diameter, which contains 100–400 billion stars. It may contain at least as many planets as well. The Solar System is located within the disk, about 27,000 light-years away from the Galactic Center, on the inner edge of one of the spiral-shaped concentrations of gas and dust called the Orion Arm. The stars in the inner ≈10,000 light-years form a bulge and one or more bars that radiate from the bulge. The very center is marked by an intense radio source named, Sagittarius A*, which is likely to be a supermassive black hole. Stars and gases at a wide range of distances from the Galactic center orbit at approximately 220 kilometers per second. The constant rotation speed contradicts the laws of Keplerian dynamics and suggests that much of the mass of the Milky Way does not emit or absorb electromagnetic radiation. This mass has been given the name “dark matter”. The rotational period is about 240 million years at the position of the Sun. The Galaxy as a whole is moving at a velocity of approximately 600 km per second with respect to extragalactic frames of reference. The oldest known star in the Galaxy is at least 13.6 billion years old and thus must have formed shortly after the Big Bang. Surrounded by several smaller satellite galaxies, the Milky Way is part of the Local Group of galaxies, which forms a subcomponent of the Virgo Supercluster.

My D50 – a real workhorse

My D50 - a real workhorse

Digging through my folders, I did some analysis and found that in the less than 2 and a half years I’ve owned this camera it has taken just over 37,000 images. That would be remarkable enough, were it not for the fact that it’s been all through the deserts of the southwest and southern california, in volcanic fogs on Hawai’i, on top of a number of high mountain peaks, at the shore, in dust storms, thunderstorms, snowstorms, and hail storms, but it has!

Short of actually dropping it, I’ve heaped every abuse I could image on this camera. I had to clean the sensor once, which was pretty nerve-wracking (and should be done by a pro at nikon, not you), but other than that, I’ve done nothing, and it has never let me down. I’m sure that Canon cameras are equally robust, but I’m a guy who places a lot of stock in empirical evidence, especially the empirical observations I make myself. This is a good camera, and a great tool. I’ve learned to appreciate good tools, from a good sledge or claw hammer to a good computer, to a good camera. In the world of implements, the Nikon D50 (though now a little outdated) is a delight.

I’m looking forward to the arrival of a recent purchase of mine: a used F100. As the "backup" SLR body of choice of many pros 10 years ago, I’m guessing that it’s a quality tool, which like many quality tools may outlive it’s usefulness with the advance of technology, but will never outgrow it’s beauty as a device that was designed to withstand hard use with aplomb. Don’t pooh-pooh it; more photos have been posted to flick from the D50 than ANY other nikon model. (as of today, 01-28-2008) Long live the D50! A real friend.

D850 JPG (edited)

Got the brand new D850!
Test using the Nikon D850 and 60mm micro N lens.
I was suppose to shoot straight JPG but after transferring to my computer I realized that screen of the D850 was soo much brighter than the D810 so I was underexposed.
This shot is a JPG shot and quickly edited in photoshop just to fix levels and clean the small dust. NO sharpness or clarity added.

Canon PowerShot S90 “Sludge-Cam”

Canon PowerShot S90

Why is this a "sludge-cam??? It spent the previous 13 months before these photos were taken… beneath 6 feet of dirty water and a foot of black sludgy rotting vegetation at the bottom of a holding tank in a closed-down water processing plant:

www.flickr.com/photos/61377404@N08/32699120132/in/datepos…

These photos show it after being hosed off and set out in the hot Texas sun to dry for a day. The owner lost his grip on it when changing settings while taking photos from the catwalk over the tank. An attempt to retrieve it was unsuccessful because of zero visibility in the dark water of the tank, made even darker by disturbing the thick layer of sludge.

Over a year later I was working around the old plant and was told about the camera and decided to try to find it. I hose-clamped a garden rake to the telescoping pole on a long-handled pruning saw after first removing the saw blade. This made a crude "snag tool" for dragging along the bottom of the tank. I really didn’t need to see the tank bottom, which was invisible anyway, beneath the dirty water and sludge layer. By extending the pole saw handle, working from the catwalk, I could drag the garden rake’s toothy head across the bottom of the entire tank… even into the corners. The first twenty minutes were spent pulling out sludgy, smelly sticks and rotting leaves. Then a more careful, slow process began. The trick was to move very slowly and notice when anything on the tank bottom offered any resistance to the rake. After ten minutes I finally pulled up a sludgy broken brick… not the prize I had hoped for, but it did provide "proof of concept"… retrieving the camera might be possible. After another five minutes I finally felt a bit of resistance and carefully worked the invisible object against the tank wall and started to lift slowly, keeping pressure on the object… pushing against the wall while raising the handle. Eventually a ball of sludge with a short lanyard hanging out of it appeared, resting on the rake tines. Moving carefully to grab the lanyard, I nearly fumbled the camera back into the tank. What came next was a thorough hosing off in a bucket of water, then drying the camera. To speed the drying process along as much as possible, I removed the SD card and battery, leaving the compartment door open. The battery had corroded itself in place and had to be jimmied out with a small screw driver.

My friend told me that the camera owner was flying in from the west coast to visit over the Thanksgiving holiday. He was presented with the camera and it now sits on his desk at work. But… I was able to give him something else also. The SD card looked pretty grim. Even though it had been buttoned up in its compartment, water had infiltrated and caused an electrolytic reaction, resulting in partial delamination of the gold finger contacts. I plugged it into a spare card reader to see if it contained any images. There was no indication that a card was present… as if the card reader was plugged in, but empty. Looking at the contacts I figured that some kind of cleaning might be possible. I took a round toothpick and crushed the end to make a tiny brush-like tip. Wetting the tip and dipping it in some fine Texas dust from outside made a kind of abrasive tool. Using this to gently scrub each gold contact individually, grime and discoloration were "erased". I had to "go light" to avoid removing any gold. After rinsing and drying I tried once more to get the reader to detect the card. There was still no indication that a card was present… until I tried repeatedly removing and reinserting the card. Then… a folder appeared, containing about 90 pristine, clear, crisp images. They looked as if they had just been taken. All the EXIF data was intact. Before anything could happen to make the folder disappear… a possibility considering the card’s condition, I quickly copied the folder to the computer, then burned it to a disc. The camera owner was amazed when I told him to browse through the disc containing "mystery" images. I hadn’t yet told him about recovering the camera.
