Cameracal’s Sensor Cleaning Service

We are constantly striving for perfection and are always looking for innovative ways in which to provide our client’s with the best possible experience, be it calibration or in this case sensor cleaning. We all struggle against the infiltration of dust into our photographic equipment most obviously when changing lenses leaving the body momentarily open. This being the exact situation when cleaning the camera’s sensor and for considerably more than a moment. So we have been looking for a solution and found LCDIT anit-dust chamber. It is used by companies that replace LCD screens on mobile phones and tablets. Absolutely perfect for our needs. Whilst it wasn’t cheap we believe that we can now offer an even better sensor cleaning service. We know that our local competitors do not go to these lengths to prevent dust contamination and haven’t heard of any another company further field! So probably the best sensor clean service money can buy.

The fight against dust and air pollutants goes on! The photographer’s nemesis has just been pushed back a number of notches at Cameracal. We recently installed a dust free cabinet which comprises of two high powered extraction fans with Hepa filters (High-Efficientcy Particulate Arrestance). HEPA filters remove 99.97% of particles that have a size of 0.3 micrometres. This will help minimise any dust contamination whilst we undertake our in-house sensor cleaning.
