Due to the climatic conditions in South Africa, Digital SLR users often find themselves in need of a sensor blowout to remove those irritating dust particles that find their way into your DSLR and onto your camera’s sensor, resulting in spots appearing in your pictures.
We offer a sensor clean that is a sensor and mirror box housing blowout (can be done while you wait), with test pictures taken and digitally analyzed to confirm the success of the sensor blowout.
This sensor clean is only suitable for DSLR’s that are in a relatively clean condition, where you are experiencing problems with only a handful of spots appearing on your pics.
The complete service of a camera involves among other things, a complete strip down of your camera’s body (or other photographic hardware). The camera will then be cleaned from the inside out, including all casings, shutter, mirror box housing, sensor and all internal parts (some wear and tear parts may also need replacing ).
The camera is then re-assembled, re-calibrated and tested.
The cost for this complete service is model dependent, condition dependent and dependent on any spares that may need replacing. Please see details for quotations.
In order to improve our service to our customers, we have set up an express repair counter at each of our branches where minor repairs such as LCD replacements minor cosmetic repairs are handled while you wait.
Your camera will be assessed by an express repair technician and he will confirm if the repair can be done straight away (checking type of repair, spares availability) or whether it will need to be booked in.
If it is confirmed that an express repair can be done, you can enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of water, read a magazine or browse our extensive photographic sales displays.
