Photographer Jeff Cable, who has been in Tokyo shooting the Olympics games takes us behind the scenes at Canon's CPS facility. This is where you go to get all the gear you could ever possibly need, and if you've had a mishap, Canon can make a lot of repairs onsite.

Cleaning Sensors at Canon CPS Behind the Scene

One of the interesting machines available to shooters is Canon's image sensor cleaner. You mount the camera to a machine and it does all of the work to get the dust off of your sensor and clear out any other dust inside the camera.

Head on over to Jeff Cable's blog to see how everything works for Canon's professional photographers here.

  1. Gotta get me one of them Dust Off machines - maybe a refurbished one on the Canon website

    Don't bother; inside is just a little person with a shop-vac! :LOL:
  2. This is what happens when you shoot with the lens hood reversed!
    Is that an R5?
    Is this what happens when pros shoot a high MP camera? If so, I finally see the advantage of a low MP camera at the Olympics. ;)
  3. And that, my friends, is why there is a tripod socket on the lens.

    I wonder if that's covered by the warranty?

    Or if that lens will show up on the Canon website as a refurb?
  4. Seeing their sensor cleaning machine with a lens thread mount was remarkable! I bet if they had machines like this make scheduled appearances in the modest size cities around the world then they'd get a lot of customers (like me) paying a modest amount to hook up their camera for a good sensor cleaning! And it would make us(me) so happy to be in the Canon world! :)
