I saw this posted on Facebook and died a little inside. I know it's meant as a joke but jeez. Made me grip my 50D a little tighter as it was sitting on my lap before i head out to take some family pics in the front garden. I seriously hope that 5D2 and 24-105 was already busted before he did it.


Body:50D gripped Magic Lantern'd

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

I don't think the problem is too much soap. I think he used the non-brand name soap :)

The interesting thing here is that the value of a "good" video about how to destroy a sometimes working, but most often not working, camera can be worth much more than the camera itself.

Some people sell photos to recover the cost of the camera. Some others instead collects money from ads.

That's okay, I think, as long as it's antibacterial. :)

Rookies!!!! After you clean it like that, you need to use a hair dryer to dry it off and then place it in a sack of rice for a week.

You mean antifungal! It's fungus that can kill your lenses.

Actually, the article missed an importing part of the cleaning process.

The article stated" "...a bowl of water and some soap, get a good amount on the sensor and make sure you rub it in with your fingers really well"

But the mirror was not up in the video, so the instructor didn't actually scrub the sensor with his finger - just the mirror.

So how do you clean the sensor? Well, when submerged the battery may not work to flip the mirror. So the best way to clean the sensor is to get a long screwdriver - one that is 12" or more in length so it provides a lot of torque - then force it under the mirror then force the mirror up. You can hold the mirror up with the screwdriver while you scrub the sensor with your finger or a small brush with stiff bristles. If you use your finger and encounter a stubborn spot on the sensor, use your fingernail to chip it off.
