K5 at Disney

Took my K5, and 18-135 lens to Disney today. Here are some pics. Have one spot of dust on sensor. I'm definately going to have to learn how to clean the sensor.

I use an air compressor and just blast all the dust away, works well for me. Very nice pictures!

Thanks for the pics, Tony.
I've been considering replacing the 18-55WR with an 18-135 for a walkaround single lens when/if a decent deal on one comes up...seems like I could do worse than it plus the fast 50 in pocket, then potentially as $ allows picking up the Tamron 28-75 and DA* 60-250 for when weight is less of a concern than speed.

Are you kidding - one spot of dust? Consider yourself fortunate. Try the camera's self-clean function, or a rocket blower to clean the sensor. Those spots are simple to remove from photos by using the clone tool in pp, by the way. Great looking Disney shots!

The Tamron 28-75 f2.8 is amazing! Been shooting it for almost 2 month's now and I'm loving it.

Don't ever use an air compressor on your sensor. It's not recommended. Try to Google about it. You're lucky that it didn't blast your sensor away or created permanent dammage, it's way too strong for your sensor. Use built-in sensor dust remover or Rocket blower should suffice 99% of the time.

Not to mention that most compressors allow a bit of oil from the compressor itself to enter the air stream.......

I would never do that. I wonder how just touching the dust with a Qtip would work?
