We are proud to say that our sensor cleaning is one of the best available.

This service includes cleaning of dust accessed from the camera’s chamber. 

To this end, we meticulously clean the sensor with certified cleaning fluids and swabs until the dust has entirely disappeared*. We resort to all known methods and most of the time, they all contribute to our succesful secret method to bring back your camera sensor to a state better than when it just came out of the factory.

You will have your camera given back to you with its sensor in the same state as when it came out of the factory. We confirm the operations involved in testing using image processing software.

If you want to check your sensor

Here are the steps to follow if you want to check the cleanliness of your sensor. First, you must set your camera to the following parameters:

  • Set your camera to manual focus, on infinity

  • MANUAL MODE 1/4 of a second at f16

  • ISO 100

Sensor Cleaning

Hold your camera upright, lens facing your computer screen, making sure you previously set your screen background to white and take a picture.

Then look at the image directly on the LCD screen of your device. Enlarge the image to the maximum value and go about it looking for specs, round spots, traces of sorts or even “hair”. Ideally, it's easier to look at your photo on the computer. If you do that, use photo shop, and once the file open simultaneously press "CTRL" + "SHIFT" + "L". This will put the contrast at extreme values never used in photography but it will show you every possible little spec, even ones you would never notice in your pictures.

If you see either of these, then you need a cleaning. We will be happy to do it for you!

Finally, in order to do a great job, we will need to change the ISO and the camera aperture to have the clearest image possible to see all the dust. Other setting may be disrupted during the operation, it's just like that. Also note that we may have to reset your device and all of its settings because some configurations are too specific for us to find out which setting prevents cleaning, if any. If this is a deal-braker for you, we may proceed to note your setting prior, but there is a 10$ surcharge for that.

Friendly and helpful staff. They will take the time to answer your questions and help you come to a well informed decision.  Prices seemed to be reasonably competitive as well.

I stumbled across your store while visiting Montreal. When I walked in, I found a huge selection of gear at awesome prices. Picked up a Lowpro 450 Pro Runner BP, for $100 cheaper then any place I've found in Toronto. Thanks! I will be limiting most of my gear purchases to when I visit Montreal!! You WILL see me again!
