    if u want to lessen the effect of the black dots, try not to shoot at such small apertures as f25 as seen from your photo's exif

    Don't mean to hijack this thread, but how do you tell if it's fungus or not? Are the spots bigger?

    Fungus on the lens does not appear as an exact spot. Rather they appear more like a cloud of blur...

    Confirm that the TS has a dirty camera sensor. Go clean it.

    thanks goodness. its just dirty.

    anyway what is the procedure of sending the camera to Canon Service Centre since now they are closed? I just bring the body alone, receipt and warranty card down the Canon Service Centre. Do I have to bring to Habourfront or Funan Centre will do? How long does it take to clean and caliberate? Within a day? or I have to leave the camera for a few days?

    it will cost you $21 for sensor cleaning (warrantied set or not)
    Canon @ Funan is more like a drop off service, the one at Harbourfront is the main service centre.

    duration wise i am not sure.

    warranty doesnt cover sensor cleaning. it only covers on equipment failure. do read your warranty card.

    for reference on sensor cleaning cost and a similar question as yours. hop to the thread below.

    You're using a 400D body right? If so, it has a self cleaning sensor.. since your camera is still under warranty, just bring it down and ask them how come sensor so dirty even with a self cleaning sensor.. And also, act

    Just 3 months already dirty like this?
    Did you check when you buy it dude? How did you handle your cam?

    this is part of a bigger problem. i think you need to handle your camera with more care. watch out when u change lenses...

    dun switch lenses at very dirty and dusty places like along the road side and when you change lenses tilt you camera body downward.
