This is older stuff since my camera is now at Canon's for some annual cleaning... the sensor had a BIT too much dust on it, which was degrading the sharpness of photos: [link]

Not an easy subject to photograph. Found you through Fred Miranda's site. Nice work! Hatch

Holy SHIT, what the hell did you do with your camera to have that much dust on its sensor? :o :faint:
I'm curious if the Canon service will do a good job cleaning it, because from a couple of people I heard that they are a bit sloppy sometimes...

Concerning the picture... you're a bit late for Yellow Day, aren't you?... ;-)
I like it, has a very fresh look.

LOL I didn't do anything to my camera... just a bit too much used (over 10 000 photos in 1 year)

In fact you can take the same test to see if you have any dust on your own CMOS sensor:

- set your camera to Av mode and set it at the minimum aperture (f.32 or 36 for example)
- set your lens to manual focus and set it to focus to infinity
- set the exposure compensation at +1
- take a picture while moving of a uniformly illuminated target (ex: a white wall)

The shot should take a few to many seconds to complete, depending on the lighting. You can then edit the photo in Photoshop and apply the AutoLevels effect. That will create a huge contrast between the dust and the subject. Send me the result when you've done it :)

Thanks for your comment :D However, for yellow day, I had another yellow deviation!! lol

Ow, you never cleaned the sensor for a year? This explains this mess... ;-)
Thanks very much for your tipps, but I already knew that and I'm regularly doing the sensor cleaning myself. :-)

Hehe, yeah, the fireworks stuff. ;-)

lol i never thought this was supposed to be regular maintenance... i was a bit afraid to clean it myself, but if there's still dust when the camera gets back, i'll do it :) thanks for the advice

Well, I think one should clean its cameras sensor at least once a month, depending on how much someone is using their camera and changing lenses. I really wonder how you could take pictures with such a dusty sensor. ;-)

No problem, you're welcome. :nod:
