Sensor Cleaning Gone Wrong at Dealership

So I decided to give my 5D a proper sensor cleaning before my vacation. I have done this myself before, but since I had run out of sensor swabs, and I wanted it to be a proper cleaning, I gave the job to an authorized Canon dealership. Turns out that was a big mistake.

Now the sensor have more dust on it then it ever had before.

This image is from the second time I picked it up at the dealer. The first job they did wasn’t any good, so I complained and they took another look. I guess I’ll have to ask for a full refund and some sensor swabs so I can take care of this myself now.

I most certainly won’t trust them with my camera again.

Update: They didn’t give me a refund, but they offered to try to clean the sensor again. I declined. Mostly because I need the camera on monday. I did, however, get a few sensor swabs with me. I used two swabs when I got home, and now the camera is ready for action.


Update: The pixelpost site got lost in a disk crash.

I’ve installed Pixelpost as a way to improve my photography. Although it won’t affect my photography directly, it will at least force me to look at my own images on a regular basis. The plan is to publish a new photo every day.

The idea came after reading a blog post from Alexandre Bussie, a French photographer and climber.

Oh, I almost forgot; the link to my Pixelpost-site. It is also placed in the menu of this site.
