Sensor cleaning

Jul 30

Well I never did get back about the sensor cleaning. Turns out it is pretty straight forward. Bit scary to flip up the mirror and press down on the sensor but the instructions were clear and the process simple. Went round the sensor about 5 times with the one cleaning pad and my problem spots of dust or whatever had got in there were gone....

Suits

Jul 14

After a lovely visit from Justin and his ever so cute daughter Tilly, I now have in my hands the two possible suit candidates. So now I have to find a tailor and see if they can get them to fit me perfectly and then the choice will be made.

Cameras, dust and sensors

Have bought me a sensor cleaner – a sticky tab you press on the sensor (it sounds like the exact thing you are meant NOT to do!) It’s one of these; Will try and clean the cam this weekend after I get back from London. There may be a broken sensor post sometime soon then!!! I might even post some before and after shots of the dust spots against a white wall – you lucky...

Suits and stuff

Going to London on Saturday to have a boys day out shopping – yeah that does sound a bit wierd, but actually there is good reason.

And they have beer in London...
