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.

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.

Wow, fingerprint copyrighted on all photos taken; very creative :bigeyes:

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. :cheers:

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.
