Fluff on my Sensor
« on: March 09, 2011 »

Does anybody know anything about servicing a DSLR? 

My Nikon D80 is currently out of action for scenic shots with nice skies because there seems to be dust/fluff on the sensor that appears in all of my shots  >:(

Is it possible for me to clean the camera myself or is it a Nikon Service Centre job with an nice big hefty bill at the end of it?

Any advice offered will be greatly appreciated  :)

Easily fixed Mr. Dow.  I've dry cleaned and wet cleaned my sensor on several occasions and its easy once you get over the initial fear ;)  You want to catch up some night to sort it out?

That would be great Suspect... I need to get the beast back in action if I want to come close to winning next months photo comp  ;)

We can arrange something by PM
