Most simply put: if you’re seeing black spots on your photos, then YES! If you’re not getting dark spots, then probably not.

We offer sensor cleaning for $70 OR you can purchase the supplies to do it yourself for $65.

The most important thing when having your sensor cleaned is that you have a fully charged battery so the mirror doesn’t get stuck in the lock position. The sensor is basically the most important part of your camera. Your sensor is what takes in all the information and records the photo. Crop and full frame sensors on DSLR and some mirrorless cameras are powerful and result in higher quality photos when compared to compact cameras with the same megapixels, but smaller sensors. Protecting your sensor and keeping it clean is crucial for extending the life of your camera.

Most digital cameras have a self cleaning sensor, but when something big gets stuck on there it might need cleaned manually. We’re experienced in the sensor cleaning process and offer a 10 day guarantee when you have us do your sensor clean for you. If you see any spots within 10 days of picking up your camera, bring it back and we’ll clean it again free of charge! We need 2 business days for sensor cleaning, but we can do next day rush orders if we have the time for $140.
