I have been let into a few secrets by our senior technician regarding sensor cleaning for digital cameras. Here is a précis of the conversation held in the workshop. I have not included the bit about not scrubbing over the sensor with a steel wool Brillo pad as I figure nearly everyone will know that already. But here's some other thoughts:Where do flies go in winter? If you have done pondering that, try this - where does sensor dust come from?Okay, if you have removed the lens of your DSLR or mirror-less camera in the middle of a paddock at ploughing time or in the discharge path of a council mulcher, you may be forgiven for thinking that is the source of your troubles. Possibly, possibly. If you have not had such misfortune consider the other sources of contamination.1. Lenses with open clearances and a considerable 'pumping 'action that operates upon zooming or focusing, dirt gets near moving section of lens, dirt gets drawn in, dirt gets distributed.2. Your clean home is...

Who brought you the M3 Leica.They haven't stopped. Well, they haven't stopped making the M-series Leica cameras because there are a number of models of them in the shop right now, and an equally wonderful cabinet of lenses to go on them. Come down and buy a round dozen for the weekend...

Our friendly local Sigma man has just set this beauty in front of us - the Sigma 24-35 f:2 Art lens.The barrel construction of Sigma lenses these days is simply marvellous - the Japanese makers really extend themselves to produce a quality product. This one is heavy, as you would expect from a large maximum aperture and a lot of glass. You will appreciate a tripod for low-light work - but then you would anyway.I think this is a lens that will feature in a great deal of full-frame architecture work, particularly interiors that are to be seen in a lower light. As it is not of the exaggerated-front-element design, you will have a chance to put filters onto it - we would suggest good quality ones to complement the optics. Hoya HD come readily to mind.I'll allow the wholesale agents to suggest that you could well choose Sigma lenses of this quality for your entire lens lineup with the major DSLR bodies - they can fight the other manufacturer's wholesale agents who will suggest that you couldn't. I shall...

Every day people present to our counter looking for smaller and lighter camera alternatives for their travel photos - we duly recommend the various options and try to talk them through their plans and needs.Panasonic have realised that this is a burgeoning market - their G series mirror-less cameras have always combined sophisticated electronics with small size. Now there is a new model that looks to be a good choice for he raveller or home photographer."Home Photographer " sounds patronising but really isn't - we all need something that can take pictures in our home, of our home life. Mobile phones don't do justice to our families when we use them as the primary image-capturing device. Somewhere down the line we and our subjects are going to be sorry we opted for the phone shot when we try to get a good large print of irreplaceable people.Well - think mirror-less, and specifically think Panasonic Lumix G7. Pop on a Lumix G Vario 14-140 lens on it and a good fast card into the slot and go for it.The good fast...
