5D Mark II - Light stain on a body!
« on: March 25, 2013, 02:35:15 PM »
Hello guys, as you can see on a photo below, there is a light stain which can be seen only under the light! I've been tried to clean it, but without any results. I had remains of car paint on my fingers.  Can you help me pls ? Thanks!

You are more likely to damage it more if you use a very harsh cleaner, if a mild cleaner does not clean it, don't worry.

what have you tried cleaning it with? moist towel? alcohol rub? I had a similar thing on the grippy textured rubber of my 5D Mark II and I'm trying to remember what I did to get it out, I think I used lens cleaning solution

Believe it or not their are people who look at their camera more than through it.
Cameras are becoming status symbols just like phones have become. If 5d's came in gold i'm sure some people would opt for it.

LOL

Heres what I'd do:


1. Right click the file you posted above:  choose "open with photoshop CSX" where x is the version of photoshop you have.
2. Click "s" move mouse over good area of camera just over area where you think the paint is good.
3. Alt + Click then move to the defective area and click and drag.

That should work!

Just chill! It will naturally flake off. Well some of it will. :)

Like many have said, do not use strong solvents (or acid or grinders). You will only make it worse. Consider it a battle scar and tell a story about it...

I'm wondering, do you guys not wash your cars? I mean, heck, it's just a tool to transport you around. who cares if it's got mud and rust? or your clothes, I mean, really, they're just there to keep you warm and prevent other people from seeing your private areas. why do you want to get stains out? gosh, such status mongerers.

Maybe try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, those seem to work on everything.  Someone spray painted a friends car and it took it right off.  Please know I have never tried using a Magic Eraser on a camera body so it may do more harm than good, it is simply a suggestion.

Just tell people that it's high ISO noise reduction coating. Or better "anti banding coating" if you're talking to real experts.

I remember that my bass player would tell people that we had modified the (broken) effects processor in my guitar rack to turn the display backlight off so that no stray electrons would get into the signal path....
