Never Look a Gift Horse?

Well, as you know from my incessant bloviating, I recently acquired a Nikon D2x for a stupendous deal.

Today after some shooting on blank backgrounds, I discovered that Mr. D2x needs a trip to the service center for a “wet” sensor cleaning. Yes, my D2x has measles.

Sadly, I have a photo shoot on Saturday and I will just have to Photoshop all of the dark spots from the dirty sensor… on every photo.

The good news is a professional shop only charges a few bucks to perform said “wet” sensor cleaning (as opposed to the dry cleaning techniques that I’m comfortable doing myself). I’m scared to actually touch the sensor… I’m happy to pay someone else to take on the liability.

Hopefully I can get it cleaned before the next time I need it.
