Film shooters know how dust can ruin single a frame. But with digital photography, the dangers are even greater—when dust or other airborne particles land on your camera’s sensor, it wreaks havoc on all of your images. That’s why it’s important to have your sensor checked and cleaned on a regular basis. And as with any specialized technical equipment, it’s a job that takes a trained technician to do it properly.
Calumet is proud to introduce our new sensor-cleaning service available at six of our retail stores across the country. Our trained technicians perform this vital service using state-of-the-art technology in a specially designed dust-free chamber. Before cleaning the sensor, each camera body is thoroughly cleaned, including the LCD screen, eyepiece, lens mount and internal sensor chamber. Then we’ll log it in our files so customers with multiple bodies can track when each camera was serviced.
A few things to consider:
- Appointments are required in advance*
- Each cleaning takes about 30 to 45 minutes
(Times may vary from location to location, please call your nearest location for a specific details.)
- Service will not void camera warranty
- Cleaning can be done on all digital SLR cameras
- Not available with point-and-shoot cameras
- Each cleaning costs just $59.99
To get the best performance from your equipment, we recommend that professional photographers have their camera sensors cleaned once a month and amateurs once every three months. Be sure to ask your technical sales representative about this invaluable service today.
*Please call your nearest location to make an appointement before coming in.
