DSLR Camera Cleaning
All makes and models
Our sensor cleanings are second to none. Using digital sensor magnifiers and UV light dust illumination, we vacuum loose particles out of the mirrorbox, wet clean the sensor then dry polish the IR plate with a carbon brush for dust free, scratch free, streak free glimmering finish, every time. We then confirm the results with a computerized dust analysis.
A dirty sensor will leave you with hours of editing to remove the spots. And dust on your AF sensor or metering sensor cause strange exposure issues, bracketing effects and unreliable, slow autofocus. So full service cleanings are perfect for pros and hobbyists alike.
We have 2 options for DSLR Body cleanings:
A Sensor and Mirror only cleaning for low shutter count, relatively clean bodies.
A Full Service cleaning for any camera with high mileage, dirty body or professional use.

Mirrorless Camera Cleaning
Have the dreaded Lens Error on your mirrorless camera? Most likely the cause is dirt and dust inside the lens barrels, jamming the drive motors.
Stuck lenses, sticky zoom buttons and lens errors are very common. It's often worth the cost of a full cleaning as opposed to buying a new camera. We repair all makes and models including Canon, Nikon, Panasonic Lumix and Sony.
