View Full Version : Camera Cleaning

G'day everyone :)

Hoping someone can point me in the best direction to get my camera cleaned. Took it out last week to bluff knoll, noticed a spot in the photos, used an air blower to remove it.....all good. Then at the end of the trip I noticed several spots and I couldn't remove them with the blower.

I was too reluctant to try the lens pen (since I have no idea what I am doing and I've never had a camera before) but my mate said he'd done it before....long story short, I see more spots that image through the viewfinder!

I'd love a recommendation on where to go to get it fixed, and the best way of cleaning it for future reference.

P.S. I am pretty sure it is just on the mirrors?...I don't seem to notice anything on the images.

Thanks in advance.

Get a wet cleaning kit from AP advertiser cameracheckpoint, and then use youtube for videos showing you how to do it. It is not hard to do and a skill worth having if you are going to remain an avid photographer.

second what rick said
i got myself a kit from camera checkpoint, and i was hesitant at first but if you read the instructions and watch the videos all will be good

Thanks, I'll look into it.

Definitely on the mirror.....looks like someone has sneezed on it!
