Judel,

You know me, you know my stand... if it is a SENSOR PEN then I might give it a glance. Lens is not equal sensor, that's the equation. Sure they can get away with it for now or maybe forever but it's always best to use the right tool for the right job. I know, I managed to damage one, a Canon 350D and I know the cost.

Again I can hold a cleaning session this April 22, 2006, 7PM onwards at Gateway Cubao. I will be charging a minimal fee and those who have guts to learn is free to watch and learn.

Thanks.

:D


is this true? Lenspen lang pwede na? ano say mo pareng rolly?

OT: How much did the sensor cost you?

Well, it's the low pass filter. The Sensor costs is near a new body. The low pass filter cost enough for me to be warry wehn cleaning. :D

Same here. I'm also scared to clean my sensor so I always send it to Canon. Speaking of sensor damage, how do you know if you've scratch the sensor? isn't it supposed to show in the images? I want to see if mine has a scratch or not. :)

When you are cleaning a sensor, you are not cleaning the sensor per se, but the lowpass filter. It's a piece of glass seated on the top of your sensor. It's purpose is to hold the bayer filter to reduce moire, it has micro lenses so that the light hitting the sensor is always perpendicular to the sensor, and it also filter out IR.

The damage will shout at you through your photos.

Ah okay. So if there's nothing in your images, even when youre shooting at F22, is it safe to assume that the low pass filter or sensor is fine and there is no damage to it? Is it possible to see when you look at the sensor any scratches or damage when turning the camera at a certain angle?

i have a small black thing showing up in my pictures @ f22 long exposure.
pag hinipan ko lumilipat and one time naging dalawa... whats the best way to remove it?
okei lang bang hipan?

ginagawa ko is humihiga ako sa kama para yung camera eh nakabaliktad then open ko yung mirror for cleaning.

You can assume that. But remember, some lens goes as small as f/32.

Let me ask you as question, did you touch your sensor?

It's not right to blow by breath. Specially pag kakakain mo lang. Bakamagka ulam ang sensor mo.

Use a hand blower.

It's need not be a long exposure to show the dust.

Nope. But I had Canon Makati clean it yesterday since may warranty pa. :) When it came back, it wasnt 100% clean so I decided to use the rocket blower to try and make it cleaner. I looked at the sensor as I was using the blower and I noticed something in it at a certain angle. Parang scratch or lint. I cannot determine which among the 2 kaya nagtatanong ako ngayon. Hehe. I'm just getting paranoid about it... Tried doing test shots and it does not appear naman in my images.

thought of purchasing the wet system pecpads/sensor swabs and eclipse solution and was still wary of doing it myself... so.... try ko ulet tanggalin yung nagiisang stubborn spot with the blower.... this time nilapit ko ng husto yung dulo ng blower and am happy to report that after several tries natanggal din! yahoo!!! in any case na maulet pa at hindi matanggal using the dry "blower" method... my next step would be the copperhill i think. altho gusto ko makita in actual use yung parehong system. kelan ba next sensor-cleaning eb?

HI when I shoot at f8 i see a little blur on my pictures when I bring it up to f32 I see dust on my pictures..

COuld this be in the lens or on the sensor...


Is it possible to get a dust on the sensor even though i did not exchange lens? I have a kit lens so it does not leave my camera?

if you can see the dust through your view finder (just peek up in the clear sky at the smallest opening) and you see it in your photos...then the dust is in your glass, or shutter mirror, or view finder.  if you see the specks in your photos and not through the lens...it on your sensor.
Think out of the box.
