Facing the wrong way at Quarry.
What's the deal? They're so distraction!
Nice work RBR
Cheers to the Hire a Camera crew for the free LowePro bag!
Must make a Friday night fight convenient for the victim.
My mum randomly bought me this. A tad strange, but rather funny 😛
It works well 😀
Of late both of my DSLRs have suffered from dust spots on the sensor, because I do a lot of motorsport photography usually I’m changing lenses wherever I can, therefore dirtying up the sensor.
My D7000 is fairly new, and only has a few dust spots, enough to soil a good photo though. My D50, however, is about 4 years old now and had never been cleaned, if I were to use Lightroom to remove the dust spots I could count literally hundreds of the blighters, only usually visible when shooting low shutter speeds though.
I asked around for advice as I didn’t want to brick both of my cameras. A few people had suggested Arctic Butterfly products, but I figured I’d go straight to the big guns with these Sensor Swabs and Eclipse cleaning solution.
After watching the how to video on YouTube I started with the D50… the guinea pig, if you will. Cleaning both cameras was a piece of cake and I’m pretty pleased with the results. The D50 took two attempts to clear all the crap, but then the first time I was a bit cautious.
So there you have it, Sensor Swabs kick arse. If you go down this route:
- Buy the correct sized swabs, there are 3 different sizes
- If your sensor has a tin oxide coating do your research, a different cleaning solution might be required
- Watch the video on YouTube and read the instructions twice
- Make sure your camera is running on a full charge
- Drink beer
No plans used and no awards for craftsmanship expected, one bored Saturday afternoon and some spare wood slapped together to make a rudimentary bird house.
