Does anybody know about how much it usually costs to have a camera cleaned? I have a Nikon D70 that has dust on the low pass filter and a blower isn't going to get rid of it. I'm not brave enough to wipe it myself, I'd rather have someone clean it than me screw it up. Especially since I don't have an a/c adapter and I wouldn't want the mirror to come down with a swab in it.

Now I just have to tell DH he's going to be ticked. I think it's dust from our trip to Europe when we went to Napoleons Tomb the entire grounds is covered in dirt and we had a close call. I thinks it's just shifting around. I mean these are huge hunks and there's a big streak that looks like a booger I don't know how that would get there.

Oh no, I'm not sure about the cost...but I agree, I'd have someone else do it. LOL I'd be too scared!

I wouldn't think it would cost that much, when I had to get moisture out of mine, it cost around $30. I don't know about dirt though.

I got a call back this afternoon $65 dollars to clean the ccd. I just have to get it to them. Luckily my MIL lives in Austin and is here in town so she can drop it off for us. It's also an excuse to get out of town for a few hours .

That's not too bad either, it could have been worse.

They recommend that you hand deliver it (although they accept shipments) because shipping will jostle the camera and knock any stuck particles back onto the low pass filter and ccd and it could potentially come back dirtier. I was thinking it was going to cost a fortune because I would have to send it to the manufacturer or to a specialty place. I'm so jazzed right now. The spots don't show up unless my aperatures set to about 20 but it drives me nutty to see them in the view finder.

That makes sense, glad MIL is there to deliver for you. How long will it take them?

I think they'll do it on the spot type thing. I didn't think to ask. He just said to bring it in and they'll clean it out real quick.

Oh sweet...if you're like me I'd "die" if I had to go without my camera for an extended period.
