    Canon Sensor Cleaning

    Wondering if anyone can give me an idea where I can have a sensor cleaned in Perth, preferably south of the river. I would not want to even dream about trying to do it myself, just after someone reputable around here that I can send my 500D to so I can sell it.

    Does anyone know if cleaning is the same price for all DSLRS?

    I can't see any dirt at all but just want to make sure there is no question about it being clean.

    a full frame sensor camera always costs a bit more to clean but since yours is APS-C it will be the same as any other same sized sensor. I wouldnt recommend cleaning it unless the dirt/dust is highly visible in the photos.

    aim the camera at a grey background or a bright blue sky and stop it down to f16 or so and take a shot, you can see on the comp screen if there are any visible specks or streaks

    Oh, ok thanks...I might leave the 500D then & just sell it, can't see anything at all, always careful changing lenses.

    So what is the rough going rate to clean a FF sensor then, anyone?

    You're lucky if you see nothing, I have terrible dust bunnies once I crank up the f numbers!

    I think you should learn to clean the sensor it,s not that hard and save yourself some dollars, check out some tutorials there are different methods but if I had to take my camera in every time it got to dusty I would go broke the 5D is a dust magnet.
