AdoramaHow to clean dust off a SLR camera Sensor : Adorama Academy publishes a practical do-it-yourself guide to fixing a common problem found in today's digital cameras, for amateur and professional photographers. As digital SLR cameras grow in popularity among photography enthusiasts who enjoy the picture-making flexibility of interchangeable lenses, more and more photographers are discovering mysterious dark spots on their photos. And they want to know: "How do I get rid of these things?" Bob brings a personal enthusiasm for photography as well as a deep technical knowledge of cameras and lenses. Most camera companies recommend sending your camera to them so they can clean the sensor, but this can be time-consuming and expensive.
How to clean dust off a SLR camera SensorClean your image Sensor
With many companies taking several weeks to send the camera back and charging $50 or more per cleaning. But there are less costly, more convenient ways. Internationally-known photography expert Bob Atkins, in his first article for Adorama Camera, Inc., describes these do-it-yourself methods in Dust Busters: How to clean off your DSLR’s sensor without ruining it. The article is published in the Adorama Academy Website.


Dust on the camera’s imaging sensor
These spots are caused by dust on the camera’s imaging sensor, and they require a delicate touch to remove them because sensors are made of easily-scratched material - and a scratch would ruin your sensor. There are several techniques, effective and otherwise, which Bob Atkins describes in detail. Atkins describes dust spots as "a normal, but inconvenient, fact of life when using digital cameras with interchangeable lenses." His article details several approaches for removing even stubborn spots, and also identifies one common method that doesn’t work.

Adorama Academy - Resource for digital photographers
The article is part of Adorama’s ongoing efforts to help consumers improve their digital photography. With DSLR sales increasing rapidly thanks to lowering prices and attractive features, more and more consumers will need to learn how to operate and maintain their cameras; Adorama is addressing this need with its Adorama Academy, an on-line resource for photographers.

About Bob Atkins
For photographers who’ve been active in certain popular online photography sites and forums, Bob Atkins is a familiar name. In addition to his nature photography, Dr. Atkins is a world-renowned fiber-optics expert, and holds 20 patents in the field. "Bob brings a personal enthusiasm for photography as well as a deep technical knowledge of cameras and lenses," says Adorama Academy editor Mason Resnick. "We are thrilled to be able to make it possible for more photographers to learn from his expertise."

Online photo magazine at a retail site?
The Academy, which is quickly becoming a choice destination for photographers at all levels of experience who want to improve their picture-taking and image-editing skills, features how-to photography articles, buying guides, and breaking news about the photography industry, written by a team of top photography experts. Why would Adorama, a well-respected New York-based camera retailer, publish what is essentially an online photo magazine? Editor Mason Resnick says, "we believe the more information and knowledge we can provide, the more people will trust Adorama both as a reliable information source and as a place where they can feel comfortable buying their photographic gear."
