Regular Maintenance

Photography equipment, however delicate, is bound to find its way into harsh terrains, and we are here to help you maintain their condition through all your cherished experiences. There are two regularly overlooked simple services that can dramatically improve your image quality – cleaning your camera’s sensor, and fine-tuning your auto focus system.

If you are producing soft images even from your finest equipment, you may have a focus issue. The complex autofocus system in your camera is completed by communication between a body and a lens. Because the two are manufactured separately, they often do not perform optimally straight out of the box. Fine-tuning your auto focus system with each lens dramatically improves your picture quality by creating consistently sharp images. Pictureline microfocus adjustments will be completed by 5pm the same day when you drop off your equipment with a full battery before 2pm!

Your mirror and sensor become exposed to minute particles of debris as you swap out lenses. These particles emerge as spots or streaks in your photos. Your camera sensor is very delicate and is covered by a filter that scratches easily – even by dust. Sensor cleaning services should be done when spots appear on photos, or after lens exchanges have been handled in dusty environments. Do not use lens cleaning cloths to try to remove debris from your sensor. Dragging dust along the sensor with a cloth may scratch it.
