    Default Need Advise on Particle in Camera

    Hi all,

    I have a problem with my D50. It seems like all the pic it takes have a particle on the photo. Please see shots below - looks like a worm hanging up there in the middle. I have interchanged lens and the problem still persist. What should I do? Thanks! Your comments/ advise much appreciated!

    ElJay, it is dust that is on your camera's sensor. Hence, changing the lens will not change/improve the situation. Either you clean it yourself or bring it to NIKON Service Center for a professional cleaning.

    Just blow it off the sensor using a blower.

    If you decide to clean it yourself, be sure to search the internet for instructions. One good site is:

    beware of your blower.....blow on a piece of glass for 10 mins to ensure that there is no dust in the blower then go blow.....mine I did not test and ended up blowing more dust onto the sensor....
