I had my 5D4 for two years, never had to clean the sensor once.

Had the R two months and after taking a slew off photos a couple weeks ago, noticed a “smooge” in some of the frames. Thought it was a specific lens at first, then noticed same pattern across shots taken with different lens. Don’t know how it got there, was a pain to get clean (took about 5 tries)

I am pretty anal about only changing lens with power off, keeping body pointed down, etc. Don’t for the life of me know how it got goobered up but it was. Not dust, but a smear of something. Only really showed up in light areas (sky) if I boosted exposure or contrast.

I am lucky I clean my own sensors and have done for the past 10 years or it would have cost a fortune

On the subject of cleaning the R sensor don't go in there with a rocket blower, you'll get shutter grease on it and it's a fecker to get off.

Cleaning it though, I bought a solution and swab pack of crop sensor swabs. I don't like the one pass full frame ones as you always need several passes.

Nice and easy to check for spots too....35mm lens at F14, +1ev and a white background in photoshop!

Even if you do see them at F14 you can dial the aperture wider in increments to see if they really matter.

I do as well, this was the first time in about 6-7 years though that I have needed to.

Oh yes. That fluid can be tough to remove. I actually sent my 5D4 back to Canon and they cleaned it under warranty... twice.

If anyone is interested in cleaning I've always found this site to be a good resource for sensible and regularly updated advice.

I think everyone today has missed the point completely.... Have you all forgotten just how slow this camera is ????


Like shooting a three legged deer scratching its ear....forget about it..

Too Funny.... interesting story in our heads now. That point is exactly what we are saying.. Things do happen in life so having multiple cards and swapping out as you shoot through the event is really the only protection that will minimize a super catastrophe from occurring. And I'm sure you do. Sometimes we all get a little to far into it. lol ..... :p:-D Try -38c buried in snow over your waist, so you can post a fox image for this motley crew on POTN.

Couple shots on my way home from work this morning...

Been trying to figure a vantage point for an area under heavy construction. Couldn't find any high ground on thew west side of the freeway, was all blocked by trees, so went to the other side and north and shot this from the top of a hospital parking structure. Eight shot portrait orientation pano to get the dawn sky and moon in the shot.

Total of 5 cranes in the composite.

Then closer to home, heavy fog had set in and took this as a three shot pano. Again, portrait orientation.

The R is suddenly making black sheep lenses viable. Such a great feeling, right? Same thing with the 50L: while I love it on a DSLR, it requires some foreknowledge of its "quirks" to avoid missing focus... on the R, it's utterly fantastic. That confidence to shoot it how you want without worrying about AF issues is such a joy.

...

Wait, you have the "R"?
What happened to your resolution/sig line? :)

First couple of keepers with the 2x TC. Focus is noticeably slower, but works on the R
