    Default Help.. Unidentified object on photograph?

    I have just bought this camera a few weeks ago (not even a month) Its a Nikon D4o with the 18-55 lens (no VR)
    My problem is some images i took had some "dust" looking object while others don't have.
    Guys I need your opinion on what this is..
    Kindly check my flicker:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/gelosbox/2340079085/

    Note that the unidentified thing seems to be at the same spot on both photos, while the other photos don't have.

    Should I be alarmed?

    What causes this?

    Appreciate our input on this.

    Most probably dust on your DSLR sensor. If you are using Nikon Capture NX and shooting in RAW format, you may use the dust reference file and the dust removal fuction in Capture NX to overcome the dust spot.

    your sensor needs cleaning

    I have to agree that it's just dust.

    How a blower can be dustfree is completely beyond me. Even if you can find one, the air from the blower will pass through a layer of dust before its reaches the camera..... unless you live in a dust free room.
