  1. Well done Allan, maybe this thread has got people sensor cleaning😃 but oh 2/3 spots left on each......😉 Carol
  2. Note to self - I must pay more attention to signs, though I did sell one sign earlier in the year - it was for Regents University Regents Park, I remember taking it as it had a dried maple leaf on it, I thought it looked pretty, wonder if I would have still taken it had the leaf not been there though, ho hum......Edo I really like your food images they always make me feel hungry though😁 Carol
  3. Wet cleaning may not be a spooky mystery so I guess it's horses for courses in that there are those that feel confident enough to attempt it and those that prefer not to. I choose to take mine to Fixation whenever any part of my camera needs attention, no way am I going to mess with it. Likewise with anything Apple related. No way would I attempt to take them apart. I have a fab authorised Apple Dealer who has sorted my Macs out when needed (you know who you are😉). As for keeping our tools of the trade in good working order, when I came to part ex some gear last year Park Cameras were so impressed with my gear, they increased the price they gave me 😉 I have a Jessops close to me that I could go to for sensor cleaning but choose not to, I still prefer Fixation, ok it's a train ride away but also gives me the chance to have a look around in there, the staff are great, there's an excellent greasy spoon down the road for coffee and/or bacon sarnies, what's not to like😉 Carol
  4. MDM - it sounds like you were unfortunate with your D850 but certainly fortunate in that it was sorted out eventually. Also yes another lesson learned in that messing around with things may invalidate any guarantee and I should imagine that applies to a lot of things apart from cameras. I have always had good service from Nikon and Fixation. Also that's was a very good deal you got with the Nikon Owner Magazine 😉 Carol
  5. I was probably extremely heavy handed at the time. I remember I had spent hours looking how to do it and probably got a bit too carried away. All I remember is that when I shot anything at F8 or over there was a huge score mark/line across every image. It definately wasn't the lens that was faulty as I used various lenses at the time. Ended up selling the camera for parts at the time. Lesson learned - for me anyway ! Carol
  6. It's great for those who have the confidence to do a wet clean on their sensors. I think many moons ago I tried with from what I can remember was Eclipse and managed to wreck the sensor on my then D200. Although I have an arctic butterfly and sensor loup, think have only used it once or twice and not recently. Having spent £££ on my camera, I still prefer the expertise of somewhere like Fixation to clean my sensor when needed and pay £50 or however much it is. Peace of mind is worth it for me😉 Carol
  7. Guess there's something about Wednesdays 🙁 Carol
  8. Looks like it's on the blink again, anyone else having problems? Carol
  9. Worked briefly this morning but not so now.... Carol
  10. 5 pages on this thread and as always some excellent advice given. As others have stated, shoot in RAW and do minimal post processing as I also do. Why not just accept that it's unsuitable for Alamy and move on.... All the best Carol
  11. That's great onwards and upwards.... Carol
  12. Well Yahoo seems to be OK now but not Measures. Image Manager seems to be ok and even managed to upload a few. Carol
  13. Measures is still down for me. I didn't know about Yahoo being down until I read it on here - guess that's why I've not been getting any emails today😥. Thank heavens for this forum.... Carol
