Dear friends,

I’ve been flying my P4P+ for about a year now and 2 weeks ago I noticed a dust particle inside the lens. I did not notice any artifact on my still or video shots. How can I clean the lens and remove the particle? Unfortunately, I was not able take photo of the particle because of reflections on the lens. I’ll try one more time during daytime hours.

Thank you,

Have you unscrewed the lens cover and cleaned the camera lens?
Yes, I did it several times with lens pen, microfiber lens cleaning clots, and Zeiss lens wipes. I can clearly see that it is inside the lens. How can the dust particles get into the system?

007: Once, several years ago, I had a speck of dust get into a professional camera body. (Okay, you often have to take lenses off and on, plus I’ve usually worked in hot and dusty locations, but I’m incredibly careful.) I got it serviced, rather than attempt something myself that’s best left to a professional. It’s easy to accidentally introduce a new problem when trying to fix the initial one when inexperienced.

Thank you AW. I totally agree. But we don’t have a DJI repair service here.

007: My apologies, I should have added “Take it to any professional camera servicing business used to Nikon and Canon equipment and they’ll do it easily.” Why? It’s a camera (albeit small sized and relatively simple).

Wow! This is very good news for me. Thank you! Is Becky OK? Please pass on my best wishes to her.

007: Yes, thank you, she’s fine and working physically hard out here as well as mentally. The top female surgeon did a beautiful, neat job, with the scar almost imperceptible around the nipple/areola. And they expressed surprise at how quickly she was healing after just 12 days. Obviously, there’s appropriately 20% chance of reoccurrence and these tumours do grow at one hell of a speed.

I’m looking forward to a “best of” compilation, perhaps in January 2019?
