Thread: Look what I found inside my lens unit when cleaning my Fuji F30!

    Default Look what I found inside my lens unit when cleaning my Fuji F30!

    There were dust spots on the sensor of my Fuji F30, so decided to disassemble and clean it.

    And wow, found some personal items inside.


    The sensor unit goes faced-down into this back lens element.

    Did that fingerprint come from the factory or shop, or did u get the camera used?

    I got it new from a shop.

    Sent it to svc ctr not long ago to change the front and back aluminium covers. Procedures didn't require to unscrew the sensor from the lens mount, as it can be removed as a whole unit.

    Man, I'd be PISSED.
    Although, technically you aren't supposed to open the unit...ah the dilema.

    So having a fingerprint on a sensor turned out to be like dust spots?

    Wow, fingerprint copyrighted on all photos taken; very creative

    Ok, joke aside. I would clean it, fix it back and move on. Just enjoy your shooting

    There won't be any defined outlines since it is on the lens element. I assume pics will be more blurred, though cannot be certain how much of the quality it will be affected.

    But I finally removed that LARGE dirt that was somehow stuck on my sensor.

    Fuji don't assemble their own cams right? during the days of 1MP cameras, i got a fuji and i spotted big dust specs on the LCD screen which is housed inside the body casing. so it's something that i cannot remove. since then i realized the QC for their assembling of camera is quite bad.
