At least once a year you should bring in your DSLR to have the imaging sensor cleaned.
General cleaning & maintenance includes:
The technician starts by checking the functions of the camera and attached lens. Before we start cleaning, we take a photo of the sensor to see where the dust and debris on the sensor is (image taken at f/22).
Then the cleaning process starts by externally cleaning the camera body and lens, this way we don’t introduce any new dust or debris. We then clean the inside of the mirror box, which consists of the mirror box, mirror, focusing screen and sensor.
We print out and provide you with an image of the sensor before and after we clean the camera. If the firmware requires updating, we do that for you as well.
The sensor cleaning service is also a great general check out for your camera and lens.
We recommend that you get your camera sensor cleaned at least once a year and after returning from dusty or sandy environment such as the coast or desert.
Our normal turnaround time for sensor cleaning is just a day or two depending on how many we have in at the time. If you have a particular turnaround time that you need we are happy to work with you you as much as possible.
Sensor cleaning is on a first come first served basis but we are happy to take reservations for a spot in line.
