Thread: Scratch/smudge on sensor?

  1. #1

    Default Scratch/smudge on sensor?

    Hi, I've recently noticed two things appearing in my photos and i tried to remove it with the arctic butterfly but to no avail. Could it be a smudge? Or worse, a scratch? (from the looks of it on the high pass filter itself)

    Here's some pics (and i know the rest of the sensor is quite dirty too haha )






    Any idea how I can get rid of it? I'm leaving for a trip on Sunday and would really love to bring my camera. Please help!

    Thanks in advance

    If your camera is a DSLR, try to use blower to clean your senser it may be some dusts.

    .
    Canon 5D II, 20-35 f/2.8L, 28-80 f/2.8L, 70-200 f/4L IS, 100-300 f/5.6L, 100 f/2.8 Macro

    Hmm doesn't look like dust to me. NSC is not open on weekends, since you need it cleaned by Sunday, bring it down to P&G camera or camera hospital tmr and let them clean it for you.

    Doesnt look like dust...
    looks like a spec of oil stain being brushed across the mirror or censor.

    Stop whatever you are doing and send it to NSC for cleaning.
    Don't aggreviate the situation.

    If you need a camera urgently, why not you rent one for the trip?
