    Default Anyone knows how much it cost to clean your sensor and mirror at NSC?

    I think I need to go clean mine there soon because I think it is quite serious. Stupid dust hahaha. I like to know how much it will cost. I do have the warranty card though, I am not sure if they will do it for free or not.

    didn't you also post in the newbie section as well ?

    sensor cleaning should be free under warranty.
    but internal cleaning at the prism is 80 bucks w/o gst.

    to have a precise price, best is call up NSC (tech dept) to ask.

    Heard from the Canon instructor when i went for the free training by Canon that time.
    when my camera was under warranty my cleaning was done free

    For those who had done their sensor cleaning at NSC before, can please rate their cleaning effciency? Like maybe after the cleaning you notice that your image quality has degrade or perhaps minor damages to your camera? Please share your bad encounters.

    no problem one lah, the cleaning process is so fast, they do it so often, i doubt they will do any damage.
    i used to let them clean almost once every 3 months, no issues.
    the past year and half, have been cleaning on my own so have not been to NSC for a while
