I recently tried mono modding my 700D... that sensor is dead now. I think i damaged the blue data bus getting the glass off, which seems to be the main issue with that camera and the 600D. I then got a 450D as the glass looked like it pretty much drops off those, which it did, happy days.
I removed the CFA using glass polish and a cotton swab, wrapped some cotton around a toothpick to get closer to the edge, but wanted to keep a good distance from the bus and gold pins.
i have attached my result and have a few questions maybe someone can help with
1 is it meant to be red? i have seen other pics like this but as there is not matrix shouldn't it be grey? is there still a layer to polish off?
2. there seems to be a cross of dead pixels that has appeared, any ideas on what could have caused this?
3. the image is combined with flats, which i thought would remove the cross and the dust, but both are still there. any ideas on why that might be
Thanks in advance, and for all the previous posts, its a really interesting topic :)
