  Sensor Cleaning   -

Same Day Service is available

We offer a Same Day Service to clean the Sensor in your Digital SLR Camera

Deliver your camera before 11:00 am and you can pick it up after 3:00 pm (by prior arrangement - please call us).

We do more then just cleaning the Sensor, our service includes cleaning the whole of the inside of the Mirror Box, the Mirror itself, the Focusing Screen (inside and outside) and the AF Sub-Mirror. N.B. Our Sensor cleaning is done by wet method, not dry swabbing.

Always ring us for this service before you bring your camera in, to make sure we can fit in your job on the day. Cost incl. GST is $ 154.00.

How to check your Sensor for dust

Before we commence cleaning the sensor in your camera, we will take a test image with your camera to record and store the condition of the sensor as the camera was delivered to our workshop. We will also record and store a test image of the sensor as the final step of the cleaning and testing process.

These images (in digital form) are available for the customer on request. We are happy to show them to you when you collect your camera (providing computer access is available at the time).

We can only guarantee that the sensor (low pass filter) surface is free of dust, particles and smears at the time the camera leaves our workshop. We cannot guarantee that new or loose particles residing in other parts of the camera (for example between the shutter blades) will not end up on the sensor once it leaves our workshop.

Quotes & Insurance Quotes

Assessment Policy and Fees

Bring your camera equipment to our workshop. We will endeavor to estimate the cost of repair/service right there and then for you, this is a free service.
If we have to dismantle the equipment to quote, a quote fee of $110.00 or $220.00 (depending on equipment) applies. This fee is NOT payable if you go ahead with the job, only if you decide not to proceed with the job. Quotes and Estimates by Phone or E-mail are not available.

Each job is looked at individually, irrespective if we have seen similar problems before. This is where we use our experience to pinpoint the problem and make sure we give you a fair and correct quote.

We simply don't give "guesstimates / ball part figures / roughly / maximum / you must have seen this before/ etc. etc." In business since 1984, we have found this is the only way for us to quote/estimate repairs & service and we will not change our Quote Policy.

Internet Forums offer many solutions and opinions. Most of those opinions are written by persons who try to be helpful but are most the times only partially or not correct at all.
We, as Professionals, never take notice nor accept these opinions; we exclusively use our training and experience.

If you are unable to bring your item in, just post or courier it to us with a description of the problem and your contact details (download our Repair Form) and we will get back to you with an estimate. This is not a free service and attracts a Quote fee of $110.00 or $220.00 (depending on equipment) incl. GST. Cost of returning by Courier or Post is additional.

If our workshop is not located nearby you or if you are not able/willing to post/courier your equipment to us, you may consider looking for a camera repair shop near you.
