Sensor (CCD) Cleaning Service

What are the grey spots on my pictures and how to stop them? 

Although these dark spots can often appear to be on the lens, it is normally the result of dust on the imaging sensor (CCD) within the camera body. This is caused by air being pumped in and around the camera’s mirror box when changing and zooming lenses. 

As the sensor is statically charged, dust and build-up from the atmosphere can stick to it and cover some of the photo sites. This results in dark spots on your photographs, thus the debris needs to be physically removed. 

As sensors are extremely delicate and debris can made of different substances (each with its own removal method) we strongly recommended that you do not attempt this yourself.
