Thread: Are these dust spots?

  1. #1

    Default Are these dust spots?

    I notice that they appear when I shoot against the sky. I think they're not dust spots but worse because they're so big. Is there any way to fix this? The pictures I take that are not against the sky are perfectly fine though.



    Is there anyway to fix this? (not necessarily this picture because this is only to show the problem)

    Looks like fungus. Do you get this with a certain lens or on all lenses.

    I get this with all my lenses... Oh dear that means I have fungus on my camera sensor right? That will probably cost a lot to fix...

    if you can see it on images, more likely is on sensor.

    when it shows up on sensor, means it has spread everywhere.

    Probably.

    Did you store your camera in dry cabinet?

    So for now the only way for me to solve this is to send it for servicing?

    yes, it cost a lot to clean, if the fungus is reside inside the lenses,
    that is why we strongly recommend using dry cabinet from day one you bought your camera.
