Thought for the day: How not to clean a sensor
On one workshop (I was a student, not the workshop leader) one student who said that they were a professional photographer (mostly families and children) asked me if I could fix the dirty sensor on their camera. We got into my car to avoid wind/blown dust and I wiped down the outside of the camera, my hands, and the work area. I asked them how they knew the sensor was dirty (they could see the dust when changing the lens—this was about 6 years ago and mirrorless cameras were in the future.  Do you see a problem so far?). I then asked what they did to try and fix the problem. They said that the spat on the sensor and rubbed their finger tip across the dirt but it just got worse. I started laughing inside.  I took the lens off and saw a very dirty spit covered mirror. It was a DSLR (in other words it used a >>mirror< to reflect light up to the viewfinder. They had spat on the mirror and rubbed it!  Not the sensor. The sensor was ok. With the mirror in the normal position the sensor is protected by the mirror. The mirror is a lot more rugged than a sensor and I used some lens cleaner to clean the mirror. And not I don’t want to identify that person.

About the Author:

SlickPic was created by a group of like-minded photographers and photography-enthusiasts who wanted a service that wouldn't force them to conform to a certain style or niche, but one that would allow them the freedom to use their photos to tell whatever stories they want. They wanted a service that was capable of storing, showcasing, sharing, and displaying photos in all the different ways people use photos: some are meant just for family, some are taken for friends, and some are made for the world to see.
