At least if I shoot relatively wide open I dont have to worry about cloning out the oil spots.

my first thought - The coca cola bottle and the background work well together :)

Thanks dancook. I think the coke bottle and ashtray work well together and give "character" to the pic.

But if the truth really be known, this was a very "impromptu" pic with no real thought given to its composition, lighting or structure. I was lucky to just fluke it all.

My family and I visited Turtle Island whilst holidaying in Bali, and when the locals working there (especially their photographer) saw my camera gear and 1dx, they all went nuts and were demanding that I take their photos for them....

Their on site photographer, Bebek, wanted me to take a few casual pics of him and his friends so he could show his boss the quality of the 1dx and then try to convince him to buy one for Bebek to use. :-)

All good fun and I have made new friends as a result from it.

I rarely use high burst mode.

Because of this discussion I decided to do a few quick tests. I snapped a few shots on the 1Dx from f32 down to f22 using the body and lens that came back from Irvine last week. There have been maybe 400-500 frames shot since.

There was noticeable dust but nothing extraordinary and certainly nothing visible until you zoomed 100%.

By way of comparison I pulled my 5D2 out of the Canon box and put the very first frame since it was cleaned through it. It was worse, but again nothing visible unless you go looking for it.

Please pardon the pun, but to me this is all in the noise. The actual images I get out of both cameras are excellent and I rarely ever see artifacts related to sensor gunk. Most of what I see are the limits of my skill... :P

Go over to the Nikon forums and take a look at some of the photos of the D600's dust/oil problem and it will make you appreciate your cameras  :p


I use a Kodak Brownie

Yeah, my thoughts too. The pics I posted show how going from f32 to f22 blurs the dust considerably. The next couple of stops make them vanish.

I probably have 100K images on my hard drive and if .01% of them are shot over f11 I'd be amazed.

Yeah a really dirty sensor will degrade images but the usual stuff only impacts pixel peepers...

I can see how dust on sensor can be a huge issue for landscape photographers who prefer to stop down often.

While the 1DX can do landscape... I certainly hope no one is cracking open their wallet for a 1DX solely to shoot landscape photos. :p For those who shoot primarily landscapes... he/she should be looking at the D800.

:shock::shock: .. don't you use F8 for sport or action :rolleyes: .. 50% of my motor sports pictures with a 300L2,8 are over F7,1, assuming you need to shoot @ 1/30 ou 1/60 to get impressive results ...

For outdoor sport .. in summer we often have sunny days with flat blue skies..
for panning it becomes a nightmare when you have so many spots that can be seen @F8 .. no way we can put a ND filter on old 300L2,8 USM .. on my 85L I use a Singh ray VariND filter for panning, but no solution for the 300L.

Already this winter I had to spend e lot of time to "clean" pictures (oil marks are coming back in less than a hundred shots)
I am afraid this summer will be a nightmare :confused:

Since we're on this topic, I decided to check it out this morning. Few dirt (or oil) marks when shot at f22 (which I'll probably never shoot) and one or two marks when shot at f11. I think I can manage that. :)

Hey Julian, what do you use whening wet cleaning your sensor? I know I'll be good for the first year (I'll have Canon clean it while I have warranty), but after that I'll probably have to clean on my own. :lol:

I use Photo Solutions. It works well on my D4s, D800E, D800, andD600. ;)

Your swab size will be number three.

Yeah, I just use the solution/system from photosol. It's harder (more work) to clean a FF sensor compared to the APS-C. I figured... take care of the camera and it'll take care of you (your images).

^^True. Sometimes one swab will not do the job. The most I've ever used is two. :)
