Ramshaw Rocks Blackshaw Moor
I have become accustomed to travelling over the A53 to get to H Lehmann in Stoke, an approved Canon repair centre. My 6d sensor was dirty after I had purchased it earlier this year. A botched attempt to clean the sensor a few weeks ago led me back to them. I would like to thank them for their great customer service. To my amazement, there was a speck smack in the middle of the sensor under the filter, which has never ever moved and been a significant fault from the start. I wished I had gone sooner. I had to have my sensor replaced. This speck must have been there at the time of manufacturer. This has left me to be somewhat disappointed with Canon. I have had to rectify several photos due to the dust spots using this camera, which could potentially cost me sales. Luckily my botched sensor clean did not lead to any damage that I may have caused. Several hundreds of pounds had been saved and embarrassment shelved as I knew my camera was still under warranty. I have never had such a clean sensor since, even the 550d has never been this clean.
Re-united with my camera, I popped up to the Ramshaw Rocks near Upper Hulme a little way beyond Leek in Staffordshire’s Peak District. This cuddly fellow below was looking out over Blackshaw Moor.
I knew the light was poor, and it was windy, I just wanted to try out my new tripod Vanguard VEO with a BH 50 ball head fitting, and give the camera a go. After All it takes a good hour and half to travel to Stoke from Sheffield, a ten minute prerequisite visit for the future could not be missed.
The tripod is very lightweight, and is versatile. I am used to using panning – handles, so this is taking a little getting used to, however it is better for packing on to my rucksack.
Thanks For stopping by today
