Pentax O-ICK1 gel stick and IBIS
Posted By nandystam
Replies: 2
Views: 744
Hi all

I have a Pentax O-ICK1 which I'm planning to use to clean some stubborn bits off a micro four thirds camera (Panasonic GX8). However, I've read on occasion that other gel sticks like the Eyelead ones can be very sticky and take some force to remove, thus potenially damaging the IBIS mechanism. My plan was to use it with the camera on as this should prevent the IBIS mechanism from being able to move around.

With that in mind, would it still be OK to use? I would assume the Pentax SR and other IBIS systems would all be fairly similar?


If anyone has used both the Pentax and Eyelead gel sticks, how do their 'stickiness' compare?

Thanks

For fully insured express post to italy, around AUD$100. Standard air mail (with insurance) is not much cheaper and probably not worthwhile.

Unfortunately we do not have the cheapest postal service in the world.

If you're still interested, please send me a PM.

What is the approximate cost for replacement?

And is the mirror damaged as well?

It also looks like a hair may have dropped onto the sensor, would that be possible? I can't seem to get it off with the pentax cleaning kit, but I don't think I will keep trying anymore.

I feel like such an idiot :(

I've attached a shot of the focusing screen and mirror taken with an old P&S so you can see what I'm up against.

It doesn't look good to me.. :(

Thanks for the reply.

Its more than a few spots. There are hairs, dust and some kind of spot. I might find out how costly a pro clean is as although it seems easy to do, I'm not confident about the cleanliness of where I'd be working on it.

I guess the nature of the glass means the hairs and other junk is caught in the "grooves" of the focussing screen?

OK I have made a bit of a mess of my lovely K-5's foucsing screen :(

I was trying to clean the sensor using the Pentax kit. Although that went OK (unfortunately it didn't seem to get what I was hoping it would clean), I seem to have gotten hairs, dust, and a small spot on the focusing screen :( There looks to be some kind of streak across the top as well (a squished hair/fiber?).

I've tried cleaning it with cosmetic brushes, 3M microfibre cloth, a foot pump and a giottos blower but nothing seems to shift it. I also tried cleaning the mirror with the above gear. The more I try, the worse it seems to look.

I know it doesn't affect the image quality, but is there any other ways I can clean the focusing screen so it looks a bit more respectable? I guess the only other option is taking it out and cleaning it somehow, or getting it done professionally?

Lesson learnt I guess :(

Thanks in advance for your help.
