I don't know how bad off it is but first thing I'd say is send it in to Canon or to an authorized service center to have it cleaned. Here in the states it runs around $50-$70US if I remember correctly.

^^^ @ macui1

I had the SAME problem when i tried to "wet clean" my sensor a couple months back.... I was told to use my Lens Pen... the spongy suction cup looking side.

I thought those that told me this were CRAZY at first, until i learned that your not actually touching the sensor becuase its protected by some sort of glass (i could be wrong about this)

Anyways, I tried it with a light touch, then a light/medium touch. I was able to get all the streaks from the "wet cleaning" off and now my sensor is GREAT!!! I will never do another wet-clean again, unless it get truely dirty somehow...

hope this advice helps!

Frustrated with my 1D3's 25% AI Servo keeper rate and have purchased a 1D Mark IIN. Wow I can't believe how cheap they are nowadays, I got a 2nd hand one for the same price as what I purchased my 400D for a few years ago.

yep, they're dirt cheap. If you don't need the N version they're almost half that price again.

If you have a new battery....how many clicks on average can you get on one charge?

You should be able to get 1200-1400 in room temperatures. Maybe even more with the right settings.

I take mine to Calumet, they do it for $60. Matter of fact, I need to go back, mine is really dirty, and I've just been fixing it in PS for a while...I should take an example shot.

DIY Photography found a great instructional guide on how to do this mod. It was extremely simple and cost $6 in parts (wiring and 3.5mm mono input). All you do is unscrew the 4 screws on top of the body (where the flash head swivels), the four in the hot-shoe, and then four more inside the actual shoe. Solder a positive to the positive connection, and solder a ground to either one of the two metal bars at the end of the hotshoe.

Drill 3.53mm hole in body, solder wires to input jack, tighten nut on input jack to outside of body. And reassemble.
