Wireless Photography and Sensor Cleaning Recap

Richard takes a photo during the March 2009 COBA meeting

We had a great meeting at the March 2009 COBA meeting, held at new location at SmugMug headquarters. I gave a presentation on my mobile photography workflow, demonstrating how I use a Cradlepoint CTR-350, EVDO modem, and a Eye-Fi wireless card to immediately send my photos to my laptop and computer.

Using this setup is a great way to document an event like COBA. In the past, if I did not transfer, annotate, and upload the photos the night of the meeting, chances are, they would never get uploaded to SmugMug. Now, all I have to do after the meeting is right a quick post and caption the photos!

Following my presentation, J.C. Dill and Landon gave a good talk on their sensor cleaning saga. They’ve used many products, but have now settled on using products from Dust-Aid. I had an opportunity to clean my 1Ds Mark II sensor; there were several spots that were removed after using Dust-Aid. A few ones lingered, but they are on the edges and I don’t mind them as much.

    Hi Adam,

    The Eye-Fi was very cool to see. Have you had an issues using the card?- reading on eye-fi forums seems some people cannot get it to work and also have lost photos from it.

    Just want to see from your experience.

    Thanks,
    Larry
