Sensor 2007-06-21-Before-1

I noticed several spots on my pictures I took during my vacation, especially the ones with blue sky. Here’s what the sensor looked like before I cleaned it.

Taken at F 32, 1 sec close-up exposure of my computer monitor on a full white screen, then adjusted level in photoshop to reveal the dust marks.

You should clean your FX 35mm sensor more than every 18 months.

…but sensor swabs are too damned expensive.

Sensor Blue Again

Sensor Blue Again

Over the weekend I noticed a mark on all my pictures and assumed it was sensor dust. But the mark was quite long and smudgy and I became concerned that it might require some drastic action, I checked some articles online and came to the conclusion that I might need a Sensor Swab kit. But luckily cowfish and davidjwbailey suggested a gentle blast of air might do the trick. I found an old blower, from the days when I cleaned negs and slides, and puffed some air across the sensor – selecting ‘bulb’ in manual mode holds the mirror up. I tested the camera by photographing the computer screen and it looks fine now, thanks guys.
