It is inevitable that over time dirt and dust can gather in the chamber of your camera, particularly if you change lenses in ‘the field’.

When dust gathers on the sensor the tell-tale signs reveal themselves as dark ‘spots’ on your photos. This shows particularly when photographing plain backgrounds such as sky or against a white/grey background. Having the sensor cleaned on a regular basis helps maintain the camera’s performance whilst enabling you to achieve the best possible results from your investment.

We offer a 3 working day, next working day and same working day sensor cleaning (by appointment only) service, by both post and in our London and Burgess Hill stores. If you are interested in booking a sensor clean in our Burgess Hill store or by post, please call us on 01444 23 70 70 or CLICK HERE to find out more and book your sensor clean.

Q:- What size sensor does my camera have?

The following are examples of full frame DSLR cameras:
Canon EOS 6D, EOS 5D, EOS 5D Mk II, EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EOS 1Ds, 1Ds Mk II, 1Ds Mk III, Nikon D3, D3x, D700
Sony a900, a850

The following are examples of APS-H (large crop) DSLR cameras:
Canon EOS 1D, 1D Mk II, 1D Mk III, 1D Mk IV

If your DSLR or CSC is not on the above list, it is a cropped or Micro 4/3 sensor.
This refers to the sensor inside the camera being smaller than the frame of 35mm film (36mm x 24mm).


Sensor Cleaning Service:

Whilst conducting the inital checks on the camera, we will contact you before continuing if we feel it is unsafe to clean the sensor - due to existing scratches or stubborn marks that could cause further damage. You will be provided with a report of the checks/cleans with the return of your camera. Please also note that this service is only available Monday - Friday.
