Camera Cleaning Service
Note: Camera drop off by appointment only. Email, call, or text prior to drop off.
Don't send your precious DSLR camera off to the manufacturer for sensor cleaning anymore. I'm local to the Lafayette Louisiana area and service all makes and models. Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax and more. I've been cleaning cameras in the Lafayette area for several years now with many satisfied clients. I also do some repair work to cameras, speedlights, studio strobes, and misc flash equipment.
Here are some benefits of having your cameras cleaned locally:
Safe - You won't have UPS /Fedex throwing around your precious camera like a game day football.
Quick - Most cleanings get done in 3-7 days. (Depending on how fast you need it back and when you drop it off) It takes Canon longer than that to assign a tech to your camera. We can discuss timing when you contact me or when you drop it off.
"On The Spot" cleanings now available - I have a limited number of days that we can arrange for same day service. Read below for more details.
Affordable - Since you don't have to pay shipping and shipping insurance, it costs way less to have your cleanings done locally. Saves you a ton of time by not having to retouch "round birds" out of your sky area of your photos. (See photos below)
Experienced - I've been in the photography business for 10+ years and have photographed over 250 weddings and well over 500 engagement/bridal/senior/maternity/other types of sessions. I know what you're going through when you're separated from your camera. I keep your babies safe. :-) I tata their battery pack and tell them good night before turning out the lights at night. I have a degree in electronics and have been an electronics/communications technician for the past 20+ years.
Quality Work - I've had cameras come in that looked like they had teenage confetti parties inside of them. I thought I had found Jimmy Hoffa's body inside of another. They were all cleaned to perfection when I was done.
I charge $50.00 plus tax per body for cleanings. (includes cleaning of up to 2 lenses)
Additional lenses are $15 per lens.
What do I clean:
Auto Focus Micro Adjustments and Auto Focus Checks:
What does this mean? - I check your body for proper AF operation with each of your lenses. Using a special focus calibration target, I see exactly where your lens is focusing, and align the point of focus to the intended plane. Then save that information in your camera's memory. This ensures that when your camera locks focus, it's actually focusing on the thing that you wanted to be in focus. It's a tedious process and it has to be repeated with each lens on each body.
"On The Spot" Cleanings:
What to bring to me for both Cleanings and AF Calibrations:
Contact me in one of many ways:
This is what a typical sensor looks like after a year or so of shooting and changing lenses.
Those spots show up in your photographs and cause you to spend lots of time taking them out in post production.
This is what a clean sensor should look like.
Focus is spot on after AF Calibration.
AF Calibration was off for this lens. The area of sharpness falls behind the point that you focused on.
