    I am looking for info on sensor cleaning... I have my Canon 20d and the sensor needs a cleaning, there is no one locally that cleans them and I am thinking I could buy a kit and clean mine.
    Yes I am aware of the risk of damaging the sensor but I feel I am capable to get the job done. Anyone clean there sensors? Kit recommendations?

    Tornado's are no joke, growing up in SE Nebraska I have seen many and been fortunate enough to have dodged almost all of them.

    I will do it in a three step process. I'm sure you've already done the air blower though. There is a wet/dry cleaning kit that works very well. They are pricey though. With imagination and youtube all new things are possible lol.

    Had a blast Saturday evening doing this photo shoot! :D

    The makeup artist needed some portfolio shots of different types of work she can do. Plus thought it sounded fun

    Was in Arizona in March and decided to go to the Grand Canyon as I and the fiance had never been there before. It is pretty awe-inspiring:toast:

    First time shooting lightning, interesting how difficult this can be. The last pic is washed out but how can you judge what aperture to set when there is no constant? I am ordering a sensor cleaning swab kit as well.
    Canon 20d / 17-85mm. Manual, bulb setting with remote, aperture set between 4.5 and 16.

    I was hoping to give it a shot. I'm central though - hopefully I can get a decent shot at the perigee.

    Well, it isn't in sight at the moment for me, but it'll be over the hills and trees in a couple minutes and I'll have a go at some photos. Never tried taking shots of the moon yet, should be interesting.

    Rather hazy out tonight, although I think I got a few good shots. The wife was kinda pissy because I wanted to take so many pictures. Not sure wtf her deal was. :mad:

    I'll go through my pics tomorrow and upload some for you guys. I think I got a few good ones, although exposure was kinda tricky. Took so many pics because I was trying to play with the different camera settings to see what worked best.

    I was doing the same, I was trying with and without this "star filter", in addition to playing around with different settings. i think this was roughly the best I could manage:

    hi guys, ive been shooting film for as long as i could hold a camera. finally got a digital camera after developing film, scanning, storing photos became such a big hassle. shooting with the canon sx40hs and i have to say for a budget dslr this is a very nice camera. the lens is phenomenal and the color is what you get from the $1000 models.

    anyway, i shoot everything, but sometimes i like to shoot pictures for my desktop wallpaper. here are a few 16:9 shots that are uncompressed if you want to use them.

    Ok, here's what I got last night. Like I said, it was kinda hazy:

    [​IMG]

    So I played around with the settings and tried a few (ok, a lot):

    It was difficult to get shots with less zoom, due to not having something to focus on.

    And the wife and my 14yo daughter with our telescope:

    what zoom were you using?
    I am going to give it another shot tonight if it's clear out and try over exposing a little.
