Question For All D100 Owners

Fri Jan 03, 2003 2:48 am

Do you ever wish you had bought a Canon D

When it comes time to clean your CCD, will you do it yourself or take it to your dealer?

Just making sure Royal, for a minute there I thought maybe you were thinking of trading in your D... for a D..

Royal,

A D100 with a dirty sensor is like a car with the ash-trays full. When the ash trays in your car get full, you trade it in for a new model - when you get dirt on your D100 sensor, you go out and buy a new camera, most probably a different model.

And the logical "different model" is... No, I'll leave Joe to answer that question! Big grin Big grin Big grin

Royal,

I have an S1 and I have always cleaned it myself when I get dust on it with sensor swabs.

Have a look at this thread

http://www.airliners.net/discussions/aviation_photography/read.main/15805/6/

and this is the site, which also has swabs for the D100. Never caused me a problem. I would recommend it.

I've also used the Kinetronics 'SpeckGrabber' for cleaning the CCD and it works fine. Would recommend it to every one.... even to a N#§&n D user... Big grin

I confess the first time it was a nightmare.

Then I tried the SpeckGrabber but it didn't perform well in my case: the CCD surface became matt where applied and that was easily seen on the test shots.

Second time I followed these instructions and with a little patience it was OK:

No problem now... I only have done it for a third time (I mean, cleaning the CCD Big grin)

Just make sure you have the AC adapter!!! If not, the mirror will stick up, if your batteries run out. It's a quick clean, just nail it with one of those rubber blower balls, and you're set.

How much is the AC adaptor cost? Anyone knows, the D100 kit doesn't come with it, just a recharger. I read the manuel and cannot fully understands it.

One more Q, do Canon D.. user need to worry cleaning their CCD? It sounds they are not worrying???? Or they didn't even know such things??  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The AC adapter is available on eBay for about $80.00

I am going to buy one this evening. Jeff and Sam, I can send it to you if you want to use it.

The part number is EH-5.

I am good for now. But I appreciate the offer! Did an inspection and all is well. Couple of spots on the mirror, none inside.

Sam:

CMOS sensors do not attract dust as well as CCD.

I suppose they'll suggest that's another cause for suicide. Big grin

Toni, not suicide, its not important enough to die for, i would classify it as "regret" -I think that's a more appropriate word.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Nikon (though i must say with the new attachment my Nikon scanner is banging out 50 slides at a time automatically which im real pleased with)

Royal, I have the Kinetronics Speck Grabber, works pretty good! Search Gary Watt's threads and you'll find the link to where you can buy it. Cost about 10 bucks.
